Home and Garden Thursday




Home and Garden Thursday


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

 BENDRULEI’ve been teaching myself and sharing with you the basic principles of creating a vignette…this time I share with you my opinion on when you can break or even bend the rules.

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-REJOICE-MORNINGI shared with you my thoughts on what I enjoy about mornings in a Beautiful Morning. I’ve also been sharing a bit on a big change I’m making in our dining room – I’ve gone from red to blue – so close to being finished!

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-TIGER-LILYAfter a long day of weeding and deadheading in the garden an idea began to formulate – I need to downsize my garden. This is our forever home and making a change in one bed can afford us the ability to entertain family better and give me the garden beds I can manage and enjoy for a very long time. It was a hard, but good decision.

Here are the Top Viewed Posts from last week’s party:

  1. Hi Kathy,

    LOVE that gorgeous, soft blue in your dining room, and the beautiful sunflowers just complement it perfectly! Thanks for hosting and have a happy 4th!


  2. Your earlier post about downsizing in the garden rang a bell with me in regards to the fact that I never dreamed my bushes would get so large or that I’d have so much trimming to do on them ! 🙂

  3. Such a pretty blue in your dining room Kathy! And I hope you find the smaller garden a better fit for you. Thank you for hosting. Blessings, Deborah

  9. Thank you so much for hosting, Kathy – and for the feature! I love the color you have painted your dining room; I can’t wait to see what you have done with the space. And I’m so jealous of your gardening skills, I can barely keep a houseplant alive! Have a happy 4th!

    • Oh, I’m pretty good at killing things too – this plan will hopefully cut that back some 😀
