Home and Garden Thursday




Home and Garden Thursday

If you live in the south you’re familiar with the three H’s – hazy, hot and humid. More time spent in the garden – I’m doing a better job of staying in one spot and getting the job done – otherwise I could be like a butterfly flitting from one thing to another, distracted and not able to see progress! I am getting pretty excited – I will be attending the Haven Conference next month – can’t wait to meet other bloggers and to learn – I’ll be sharing with you all when I’m back – well – still a few days away! But, I’m so excited!!!

Here’s what I shared with you since our last party:


I have been teaching myself the principles of creating a vignette – it’s quite interesting, especially learning to apply the Golden Ratio – I arranged this vignette two different ways – which one appeals to you most? 

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-BUILDING-VIGNETTE-COMPLETEContinuing my practicing building vignettes, and because I found this great lamp at Goodwill – I share more on the Golden Ratio and three basic principles of vignettes – it’s fun!

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-GARDEN-LESSONS-MORNING-COFFEEDearest and I worked in our garden a lot on Saturday-the first day of summer! I discovered some of my perennials suffered from last winter’s ice storm – especially my beloved La Marne rose and some annual Petunias showing stress from the summer’s heat and drought. I had to do some necessary pruning and gained some lessons from gardening at the same time.

Also! Congratulations to winner of the Countdown to Summer Giveaway…Anna L!

  15. Great features, Kathy! Thanks for hosting, nice to be joining you this time! : – )

    It’s been super hot, rainy, muggy humid here too- unbearable, like a sauna bath. Bleck. I hate to be so hot.
    Our a/c broke but they got it working within 24 hours. Luckily we b ought new windows last year so we stayed cool enough till it was fixed, whew, thank goodness, huh?

  16. No heat nor humidity here in Northeast Oregon, Kathy. We’re at higher elevation and it’s just now beginning to warm above 65 degrees in the daytime. Thanks for hosting the party. Lots of pretties this week, and that berry bar looks scrumptious. xxx ~ Nancy
