A Productive Weekend!

I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday weekend! We used most of it to get some of those much needed outside chores done. We are in the process of totally repainting our front porch, so out came the power washer, and the scraper....now to just get started painting!
Of course when you are doing all this sprucing up you want some different things, so I have been working on a few redo's. I have had a couple wicker planters for a couple years now, and always told myself, to get them painted white, so I did get that done along with making a new sign to welcome our guests. My husband Walt, built me some cute planters out of shutters, and we got those painted, and planted with flowers, now to just get them hung back up after all the painting is done.

We did have a very nice Sunday afternoon. Our grandson and his girlfriend were able to come down and spend some time with us......we had a marvelous time, and although it was so hot, it was a welcome break to all the chores!
So with all the outside activity I have done little in the way of painting..........well decorative painting anyway. So stay tuned for some new pictures of our spruced up porch......hope you all have a pleasant week, and as always blessing to each and everyone!

  1. Love your latest pictures. Can't wait to see your spruced up porch.
    I took pictures of our roses before the rain ruined them. They've been added to our website.
    Have a great day.

  2. Love your pictures of the flowers, they are just vibrant! It's a bad year here this year, some days I don't think anything will grow...although the weeds are doing darn good! LOL

  4. Very nice pictures of the flowers. I love to grow flowers, but I'm not that great at it. Spring is fine, but come summer, they just don't do too well.
    Also, I wanted to let you know that you will be featured tomorrow in my weekly "Featured Followers Friday" post.
