Home and Garden Thursday
May is swiftly passing and it feels like summer already here in Georgia – one of the things that typically comes with summertime is thunderstorms. Whereas I usually like them, I have tremendous respect for the power and potential danger that can come from these storms, our hearts and prayers have been on the folks in Morris, Oklahoma.
I found a wonderful site – Ready. Gov where you can read about and learn safety procedures during thunderstorms or severe weather. You can also find how to build an emergency kit and what basic and specific supplies you can put in this kit. Also, you can be prepared by creating a Family Emergency Plan. I found this a very good idea, we’re not always together and you’d want your family to know important information and others, in case they needed to find you.
What can you do to help when there’s an emergency, such as in Oklahoma? One of the first suggestions I heard was to donate blood or to the Red Cross. Blood donations do increase in times of emergency and disaster, that’s good. Blood is needed, however, year-round, I found, because they report that blood has an expiration date, much like milk. Donating throughout the year is a very good thing. Red Cross or Samaritan’s Purse are wonderful organizations give donations for disaster aid. Heres a list of sites where you can donate to help those in Oklahoma.
My handy Son-in-Law made this amazing table and my daughter styled it to showcase it available for sale. Love it!
Last week I shared to you the roses I am blessed with in my garden. These are the roses from ‘Becoming the House in the Roses’ part 1. You should see Dearest’s roses!
The Duchess has arrived at A Delightsome Life garden. I refer to the Peony as the Duchess in my garden – joining the regal court with the Roses, Iris….
At Home is Where the Boat Is you’ll find a beautiful prayer for gardeners and a lovely, whimsical post.

Lynda Bergman’s Tromp l’oeil work is fantastic – she has a lot of marvelous examples shared on her site. Here she shared how she painted this verse on a client’s wall – she made it sound easy, but I know, this is hard work to turn out so beautifully.Susan at Through My Porch Window shared how she decorated this sweet, rusty table – love the skirt and the fringed top! Beautifully done!

We all love chalkboards and the various ways we can make them from found objects. Denise from Denise on a Whim created this clever chalkboard from an old chair back! With a shelf!
