This picture went away when I published this post so it's out of order to my narrative. SO here is the iron foot board I am speaking about below...
This picture is of the patio we created outside our garden gate..this was actually a part of our driveway when summer started but I envisioned it one morning in May as something more ....so I set about creating a courtyard feel with the space that eventually led to pulling the table and chairs onto the driveway placing an outdoor rug under it to create a coziness to the area while at the same time adding some warmth too. My sweetie is the one that imagined the look of a gate that would add some architectural interest without REALLY being a permanent fence as we have to be able to move it all aside when we need to pull the old f150 truck my sweetie has out of the garage right now it is In a state of "silent antiquity".....he found this amazing iron foot board that we are using ...I thought you might enjoy looking at it...well sweet friends this post is already very long so for today I will say so long thanks so for popping in blessings and big hugs....Karena

Good morning girls ....A few weeks ago my sweetie and I took to the road for some summertime fun...I found a "VINTAGE HOME SHOW" a few hours away that I wanted to check out so off we went early on a Saturday morning (one of my favorite things to do) to see what kind of FABULOUS this show could be
|Here we are driving down a very quiet road....early in the am when nobody's out driving...SO PEACEFUL|
|We arrived safe and sound...I jumped out of the car while my sweetie scouted a parking place it was a very small show but everyone that WAS there had their spots filled with repurposed treasures....Indeed....I was one happy little shopper|
|I always enjoy meeting the folks that have taken such time and trouble to create something beautiful for all of us this was one of the first booths I saw ...the owner couldn't have been sweeter or more gracious to me....|
|They had tables set up for sitting and eating with fresh Hydrangeas on every tabletop...|

Good morning girls I am up early this morning peeking at my garden after an evening rainstorm ...I have been so blessed I wanted to share with you all the plants my bird friends have brought to our garden...but before I talk about that I wanted to share some pics of the side garden this year it has changed a bit ...this is a flower I planted last season after my heart surgery from a seed pack my sweetie brought me ....it sure didn't do much LAST year ....but look at it now the rest of these photos are of the side yard we have changed it quite a bit this year I had two Christmas tree trunks we'd saved looking at the space one day I thought they would look good as bird feeders dug down into the garden to secure them ....the birds love them as you can see the feeder is empty....more seed is on my to do list I suppose the rest of my post will have to wait for next time this one is getting long thank you all so much for stopping by....BLESSINGS and BIG hugs to you ....Karena

Well my friends I can't believe it's been almost a year since my last post...I haven't been gone for any health reasons or sadness or for any SERIOUS thing really but a new addition to our family that I would like to introduce you to this minute....this beautiful boy is our "Huckelberry Finn".....adopted in November of last year ...the 14 th to be exact. They had an adoption weekend at our local Pet Smart that our eldest told her momma about on the fly. After work that Saturday I drove over "Just to look" you see I had to ya know puppies all shapes and sizes are my HAPPY PLACE.
So I walked in straight to our boys kennel....the rest as they say is history....so down the road we went towards home HE has been the bulk of my distraction these last few months. I hope you all are doing well while I've been gone !!!!! Here's another thing I've been trying to figure out... posting with my ipad and adding pictures....today I found an app from blogger for free which is why I am writing you all now but I can't figure out how to ad more pictures or edit them with pretty frames or write what I want underneath them like I could do on my Asus lap top thing is my Asus is over 4 years old now and SO Slow if any of your have any ideas or experience with iPad my ears are wide open.... Blessings and big hugs girls till next time....Karena
