Fun Finds & A Garden Stroll

My heart is full with all of your wonderful and supportive comments yesterday.  Your kindness and generosity of spirit is such a blessing!  Take a stroll with me through some fun finds and my garden...

Vintage Sheets from the Salvation Army store

New silk flowers for the dining room (don't they look real?)

Let's see what's coming up in the garden...

Heavenly Snow Ball bush 

Tulip tree

These came from my parents house, my Mom always
called them Buttercups

Enormous Bleeding Heart


I, for the life of me, can't remember...

I can't wait till this Clemantis blooms, it's unbelievable

Favorite stepping stone

Wild Violets hiding under Hosta 

My supervisor who has been sick all day.
I wonder what he ate this time...

Blessings to you,


  1. The second sheet on the left was my favorite design when I was growing up. I wonder if I still have a pillowcase. . . I'm jealous of your huge bleeding heart. Really. And there was something else, but I can't remember. ;-)

  2. Great SA finds. Makes me want to run down to mine tomorrow and see what I can find...but another time.
    Your flowers in the garden are beautiful. My Tulip tree doesn't get leaves until the flowers are gone. Now I know what if would look like to have both together.
    And the flowers on your table do look real.

  3. I love the garden....!!! I hope the garden supervisor is okay :) Jenny

  4. I took a garden stroll yesterday. It is driving me crazy that I haven't had a moment free to weed yet, but the flowers are blooming just the same:>) I had a set of those vintage sheets second from the right with the tiny flowers!

  5. Your garden is beautiful!
    I love all the life and colors that are coming out!
    I spent all yesterday on my lawn mower and in the garden ... my sweet "supervisor" laid under a big oak tree smiling at me the whole time. I even asked, "Bear would you like to learn how to use a hoe?" :o)
    Your vintage sheets are just precious. Can you tell me what defines "vintage sheets" I need to check out our local thrift store. They look so sweet and fresh. :o)
    Have a great day!
    Sincerely ~ Trish
