Summer stuff!

Summer is definately here in sunny AZ. I spent Sunday afternoon changing my outside pots to Vincas hoping maybe they will survive!

This sweet little cup and saucer is actually a planter. I had two of my closest girlfriends here in AZ for lunch on Friday. I decorated all in a garden theme. These little planters had their cupcake for dessert in them. I will show the whole table later this week.

I know most of you will remember my Valerie Parr Hill wreath from last year. It is on my door again this year. I just love this of my favorites.

The little bicycle is the cutest thing. It makes me smile whenever I look at it!
Most of you know that my husband believes in spoiling me as much as he can. He had the newest VPH wreath delivered this week.

This one has a fence and a wagon. I have it hanging on the inside of the door right now, but I have a whole new buffet top planned. The cool thing about her new wreaths is that they can also stand.

I am always amazed at what you all find at garage sales. Last week after a quick rain, I took Bentley for a walk around the block. A neighbor was having a sale and I bought some greenery. I saw these on the sidewalk. They were wet from the rain, but I asked and he said - take don't have to tell me twice. They are old sewing machine drawers. I don't know exactly what I am going to do with them....but I like them!!
I am enjoying seeing all the great projects you all are accomplishing. As aways, amazed at all your talent in Blogland.
Have a great week!

The sewing machine drawers are so cute. I would not have appreciated their beauty. You have a great eye!

Pretty wreaths...and the sewing machine drawers are gorgeous. They could hold storage or even be used as planters. Why would someone throw them out? Linda

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I love those wreaths Ceekay!
And I love the idea of the cupcake in that cute cup and saucer, very creative!

Karen said...

I just lugged one of those drawers home all the way from Savannah! And I PAID for it! You lucky little duck!

OK, we are going to have to have a lesson about your wreaths. They are marvelous! But . . . who is it that makes them and does she come out with a new one each year?

Sounds like you are feeling good! YAY!
It was hot here yesterday! Now it is supposed to cool down to normal.
Did you feel the earthquakes last night?
HAGD! Hugs! Me.
