Here are a few pictures of things I am currently working on. Some are almost finished...hallelujah!
I was inspired by this blog post . She has the most beautiful home and the most beautiful blog. It's one of the first blogs I ever started reading. Still a favorite. Then I happened to pick up the June 2009 issue of Romantic Homes and found an article on yard conservatory's by the same lady that had made the one I fell in love with. The article had very clear and simple directions for making your own conservatory. I think I got the windows a week later. That was over a year ago. We just recently got it assembled and I just finished painting everything. All that is left to do is to bling it up a little. I'm now gathering some decorative elements. Wreath, chandelier or shabby wind chime, some gingerbread, etc. I think I'll plant ferns inside. I want to get it finished up so I can check it off my to do list.I am also working on an old (and in very poor condition) hutch. I hope to use it as a potting bench. Bought it last summer. Just finished the top. Now I need to try and reconstruct the bottom. I am totally rethinking my $20 investment. Don't they say "time is money"?
Six more plants to plant on the top level of our rock gardens by the driveway and the only thing left to do will be to put some stone steps in on the side. And to plant thyme all around them so they smell pretty when stepped on. I'd love to call this "project" finished. It has dragged on forever.
I want to get this glider painted white before the snow flies. And if we don't get this mess cleaned up soon I think I'll go crazy. This little cutie is just waiting for me to pay some attention to it. I'm thinking I'll plant something trailing. For now I'm just going to find the perfect spot for him.
