I just love these Blue & White pottery pieces sister Judy and I found at  "Pennies From Heaven Thrift Store" at 9319 Santa Fe Drive in Overland Park, Kans.

They go beautifully with the taller vase husband Maurice got for me as an anniversary gift years ago.

This tin urn was a find at another new (to us) thrift store: "City Thrift" at 11186 Antioch Rd. on Overland Park, Kans.

Here's where I have put the smaller pot for now anyway!

Having fun creating Garden Totems with flower pots1

2nd rooting of  coleus.

The Sweet Potato does so well in the planters. This one is out in front by the driveway.

Another old canister for my collection on the back porch.

It's hard to resist old boxes and  kitchen linens

My friend Rose Marie knows I love old pieces to use out in the yard.  This old rotted out pot is just great!! 

I have enjoyed gathering blue birds lately.  This one may have come from the 3rd thrift store we found new to us: "Turn Style Thrift" run by Catholic Charities at 9750 W. 95th St. Overland Park, Kans.

More Blue Birds! The one in front sister Judy found for me.

Cherries are another favorite thing of mine. I have several tablecloths and runners with cherries on them!

Love the old linen table runners too!

My favorite size of canvas right now!

Judy found these new SAS  shoes for me at Major Thrift on 50 Hyw. in Raytown; one of her favorite thrift stores.

We all like "smalls" This precious little chalk dog is just  1 1/2" tall.

Can tell the size better here!

Gathered up these 2 cute little caps for my Halloween Pool Table Display.

 This is my latest 12"X24" Bohemian Painting #3 "White Phlox". I'm sure having fun with this new size and style! Hope you are enjoying your days too! You might check out my other blog: also.

My newest Quote Journal #2

I took a picture of this framed piece of fabric art of mine and then ran it off on fabric. But I couldn't get it light enough for the cover of my journal so ended up painting the fabric1

This is Journal #1. I took a better picture but wouldn't you know this one came up!

Been wanting to paint this sign for some time! Finally got it done1 The flowers are finally looking better in the wagon too!

Husband Maurice has been working on a BIG PROJECT up adding a layer of insulation board all around the outside of the house then putting new siding over that. of course that required staining and painting too!

I love the pretty chartreuse potato vine by the back entrance, but it requires a lot of watering and then the weeds grow that much faster between the bricks!

Nostalgic old apple plaque!

Back Porch table centerpiece for summer.

 Finished this Fabric Fall Art Picture  while on vacation. Will use it later. 

Maurice kept the ladder from Davey's Playhouse for me for old times sake!

Path thru the Garden from the back entrance.

All ready enjoying the fall colors in the dining room!

Path thru the garden at the back of the porch.

Tasha loves to sit on the swing with us! I took a pretty good selfie of all of us, But naturally it didn't show up when I put my pictures on the blog! Happy Summer! Hope you'll check out my other blog  too.
