Hello everyone! I hope your weekend weather was as beautiful as it was here in South Carolina. This weekend was just simply BEEE-UUU-TI-FUL! It forced you to go outside, love mother nature and simply be happy to be alive. That’s the feeling your thrifty girl had both days. I had to take advantage of the perfect weather and began weeding the flower beds…I really should have prepped my back for this.. I’m soooo like out of shape for this kid of work.. Over the winter you actually forget how much labor is involved in yard work. Headed out to Lowes on a mission to get deck stain, brush etc.. because it was time to stain the deck and passed 5 – yes- 5 yard sales.. I couldn’t stop on the way, because I needed to get to Lowes and get back. Well on the way home I HAD to stop.. the temptation got the best of me. I stopped at two of them and spent $11.00. I bought another chandelier for my brother’s house – never used for- for $10.00 and this pair of wrought iron candle holders for $1.00. (I’ll show you the chandelier on my Friday Finds post)
I started with this part of yard. A few months ago we had the pile of lumber removed and it left this portion of the yard drab (and the soil rich)
I wanted to extend the flower bed down the fence, so I rocked the path.. and began there. This table needed to be freshened up a bit- okay.. A LOT OF BIT.. chuckles..
I pulled this fire screen out of of storage.. (another Goodwill bargain for $6.00) since I was painting.
I decided to use it in the garden. It adds a bit whimsy to the space. I think I like it. How about you?
The bed is coming along nicely. Once I add the remaining plants and mulch, it will look a lot better.
Time to take a break and on the way inside, I happened to notice my pointer finger.. rule #1 use rubber gloves to spray paint, I had a perfectly painted gold finger nail. Lucky polish remover worked.
I was very glad I made a pitcher of flavored water (strawberries and lemons) .. It was quite refreshing after being in the sun a few hours
I’ve made some progress but still have quite a bit to do. Little by little I’ll be finished and back to relaxing in my “Chill-Out” Rest Haven
Sooo.. how was your weekend?
