My Garden and Bedroom

Ugh...sometimes Blogger makes me nuts. This pic is supposed to be at the end. ANYway....tell me what you think of my new vignette! BF looked at it and laughed. I think he thinks tools are supposed to be USED or something. Whetever. I bought them for a sum total of $5 at a garage sale, JUST so I could hang 'em up. I could use them if I REALLY wanted to. Which I don't. Because that would mean I'd be digging holes and shoveling gravel and whatnot, which I don't feel like doing right now. So there.

...well, I couldn't resist the kitties on my bed...

Do you think he's looking out at my shed garden? I do!!

There's a spot on the top right, waiting for another vintage floral print or painting!

My lilacs smell SooooooOOO good.

You can catch a glimpse of the hideous dropped ceiling here.....wonder how many years it'll take me to get rid of THAT? eh. whatEV.

I took this pic more for my benefit than yours. I have formulated a plan for a cottage garden out front here. I've got the picket fence (salvaged from a client's home), and I want to box in the yard at the top edge of the hill, creating a sort of courtyard look. I'll sketch something up in Photoshop when I get some time. I think it'll look amazing, though.

I love my poppies.

ahhhh.....and next year, I'm going to plant a TON more tulips. I want to be able to cut them. I didn't cut ANY this year because they all looked so good in the gardens. They're just starting to fade after a nice long stay.

Caught 'im--Mr. Bumblebee! It only took three tries! :) I saw a hummingbird out there yesterday. I'll have to try to catch HIM one of these days.

And lest any of you ( get worried that I'm never going to finish my slipcovers, have no fear! I'm almost done! In fact, I think I'll go finish them NOW!
P.S. The ex is in town--came up with his girlfriend and his mother to see Kathleen starring in Mulan Jr. this week at school. So....the house is clean! :P (I never should have given him my blog address...I can't be snarky! Dammit!)

That's the type of bedroom I absolutely love! Fancy, ornate, formal, expensive looks just don't encourage "come in and relax" to me like yours does (and mine). I don't think I've ever smelled lilacs; I love fragrant flowers. My sweetpeas and jasmine are perfuming the air right now.

Love your ideas for creating a courtyard. Having a home is like having one big giant canvas that you can continually paint!

I like the hanging garden tools! Nice touch.
I don't recall seeing pics of your bedroom before. So charming.
You reminded me that I need to sneak next door and snatch some lilacs. No one lives there and it's a shame for them to go to waste, don't ya think?
Enjoy Mulan!

Ahhhhh. Like a big whiff of fresh NY spring air! Lilac mingled with fresh laundry. Perfection!

Your gardens are beautiful! And your room so serene and country cozy!

Enjoy these gorgeous days Sharon...and the slip? All done? Let's see!
