Great Garage Sale Find

My husband and I were out Saturday doing our usual shopping for treasures at garage sales. At our last stop - I walked around the corner of the house and found THIS sign hanging on the fence!! Now this is a real treasure - it has my name on it and I love to garden! Of course they were not planning on selling it, their father had made it in memory of their mother, now both were in heaven. I was disappointed but surely understood but a few minutes later they said they would sell it to me. Yippee! Now it's proudly displayed on my porch.

Decided to join the party at Southern Hospitality today for Thrifty Monday. There are a ton of people participating today so be sure and visit.

Warm wishes,

PINK Saturday 8/29

Here is some special PINK my grand daughters.
This is their first day of school in sunny Arizona.
They are growing up so fast!
Hannah is in those pretty PINK sunglasses and she will be 9.
Kaela is 5 and will be 6 in September she just started

It sure is hard not having them close by to give them BIG hugs

Show Off Your Roosters Party

The Show Off Your Roosters Party hosted by Bella Vista if finally here.
I took all my photos but OMG all my roosters had dust and cobwebs on them!! Yes I had to clean all the rooster and take the photos again..but please excuse any dust I missed!

The top photos are taken in my breakfast room.
Love that big rooster cookie jar.
That Willow Farm sign and metal rooster are on my back porch.

My sister Kathy gave me the rooster wall hanging. That rooster below wall hanging is what started my collection, it was bought at a thrift shop.

The old cabinet came from my parents home. It's a medicine cabinet. My family thinks I should paint it but I like it the way it is.

More in my breakfast room.

The blue cabinet was bought at a craft show I just had to have it! It is in my kitchen.
I painted the rooster in the pot with strawberries years and years ago when taking lessons.

Saved the best for last....my grandson Nathan
with a rooster. What a sweetheart he is!!
(My grandson not the rooster!)

I don't collect roosters and chick any more but I still love the ones I have. Hope you have enjoyed visiting today. Have a wonderful weekend!

Painting Astilbe Flowers

Yesterday while visiting Sherry's blog Creations from My Heart she posted about spray painting Astilbe flowers! I found that an amazing idea. Today I spray painted my Astilbe. Sherry's colors are much brighter than mine but there still is a difference after spray painting.

This one I spray painted pink.

and this one is spray painted lavender.
I did get some paint on the leaves but it's way too hot to fix it now!

I have one more that I want to spray paint white but I'm going to wait
until it cools down a little maybe there are other flowers that could use
come paint!

Warm wishes,
