Rose Garden

I love this area.

A simple vignette in my back yard.

I decided, since I have spent a lot of time out back this summer, that I should share some of the splendor.

I love this chair....a hint of green....
I was at a sale and this beauty was already spoken for... boo... but there was a fabulous white chair... same amount of chip and rust... do you get where I am going here... so I approached the nice woman and asked her if she was looking for a chair or a certain color.... to make a long story short... we traded.

I went home with the green one. Sweet score!!

from my back door....

afternoon reading chairs.... usually in the shade by 2 pm
Or the umbrella goes up.

greens and flowers everywhere

the front.... street side is iron fencing and then it flows into a wood - privacy fence in the back

I paired many areas this year with blues and pinks....
love the two together

my pool house

I will post more photos of the back yard as the week goes on.

Barn News:

I am having a sale at the Barn
a two day sale

everything 50% off.

yes, you read it right.... 50%

yes, I am crazy.
No, I am not going out of business.

I am getting nervous as the sale approaches.  I walk through the Barn and think.... I can't sell that for half off... I can't possibly let that go for 50% less.... oh my, what have I started....

We will see. Everything is a learning experience.
Some have said, why didn't you do 30% 0r even can you go 50% off ???

I actually don't know.... someone else asked how much admission was I charging? Boy, why had I not thought of that....$5 admission for a 50% sale.... like I said, live and learn.

The sale is a Friday and Saturday.
August 03 and 04
two days only
doors open at 10 am and close at 5 pm.
If ever there was a time for a road trip.... start planning.

I will need a few volunteers for the event if anyone is interested

(some exclusions apply.)
