We can hear the water when we are in the living room. You know how soothing that is.
We got this little rose fountain at Lowe's. It was only $45.00. Can't beat that. Two bags of pea gravel was about $7.00. We had the bunny and the plant already so for only $52.00 we found a way to have a little beauty in a spot where nothing will grow.
I'm going to get more flowers to put in this area. I want to hang some pots on the wall and also we have a double hook that I'm going to put a hanging plant on and a bird house. But at least we got a start.
This is our mailbox which is right by the front door. Yikes! I need to paint the top. Or should I leave it the way it is, with chippy white paint?
I got these two cute bird houses at Michaels. They were both 1/2 off so I couldn't pass them up. I think I will put one of these out by the new fountain. Which one do you think would be best?
I found these two cute lamps on Craigslist. They are more of a creamy yellow color then they look like. I'll be painting them more of a white. They will go in my blue bedroom.
Oh it doesn't look like I'm sticking to doing only one area of the house at a time. It's hard for me to do that. I like to pick up things as I find them.
But right now I am trying to stick to the garden area. Both front and back.
We did get the swing I wrote about. Sadly though, it's really more of a cream and tan color rather then pink. But, I think I'm going to paint the metal part pink and add some cute pink pillows. So in the long run it will still give the feeling of a pink swing. Don't you think?
I've been working on my blog for Gene. I've started at the beginning so I don't have any updates posted there yet. But the good news is he is getting movement back in his paralized arm! How exciting!
I also think he is going to go home this coming Monday or Tues. I know he will be glad to get there. It's been about 7 weeks already that he has been in the hospital. That's enough to make anyone long for home.
Well don't forget to sign up for my give away, if you have not yet done so. It will be closed tonight at midnight and I will draw the name tomorrow. I can't believe how many people have signed up already.
Also, if you have not noticed, I have an area on the right of my blog for other give aways I find out about. So spend some time clicking over there and you are bound to find several things you want to sign up for.
