Backyard and Garden Decorating

We are getting SO CLOSE to Spring I can't stand it! Living in Wyoming I won't see it for a while after most of you will. *SIGH*   Today there are birds all over the several bird feeders I have outside. Rewfuss the cat is watching intensely in the window. It gave me a feeling of Spring so today's blog is about decorating for the outside of your home and garden. There are some really cute ideas.


WARNING! These pictures may cause feelings of desperation for SPRING AND SUMMER! (Unless you live in Arizona then I feel for you)

How are you feeling now? Are you as excited for Spring as I am? It is a good time to start thinking about the little extras you want to add to your backyard and garden this year. Lot's of items in the Thrift Store. People aren't thinking about those items yet so you should have lots to choice from! Hope you enjoyed the pictures. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Decorating with Terra Cotta Pots!

I have always associated Terra Cotta pots with gardening.  I love those big pots with big beautiful colorful flowers growing over the sides. I started wondering what other ways I could use these pots other than gardening. After doing some research,  I was pleasantly surprised to find some wonderful gardening ideas along with some other very clever ways to use Terra Cotta pots. 

I love the color combination.

What a great idea for a kids birthday party! Make the pens and decorate your own pot. You can buy a pack of three of these pots and Dollar Tree for one dollar!
