Last week I showed some of the porches that we were working on, and it took *all* week to get everything pressure-washed, re-stained and railings painted. We also put out mulch around the house and I cleaned up all the beds.

Even though we have done a lot of clearing brush, etc., this spring, I am behind getting the porches ready for spring--probably because it's such a big job and we need three days of nice, sunny weather to get it all done.

I thought I would share with you all what I have shared on my facebook page this week in case you missed it.
First up...my "Thrift" is absolutely gorgeous this year and smells so fragrant. Some call it "Creeping Phlox," but here in the south, most people call it "Thrift."

I don't think I have ever loved pink and blue more than I do right now. I had that red phase, but honestly I really have loved pink and blue since I was a little girl. These 1950s shades are my favorite and they seem to be pretty popular too.
These are vintage cars my dad put together...

Hi everyone! I shared on my facebook page a few weeks ago a photo of the antique iron bed I had found here on the property. I have been wanting to restore it forever it seems, but didn't get to it until last week.

I will never forget reading several years ago...if you only have pink pyrex, you might have a hard time setting a pretty table. I wished at the time I had a set of pink pyrex but it is so collectible these days, I could not afford it. So I chose the next best thing...Melmac. That's right...plastic melmac.

Instead of sewing window treatments or pillows, I made Easter dresses for my daughters on Good Friday. They each picked out a dress online they liked and we worked together to adapt them to each girl's taste.
