I’ve been busy busy these days... painting furniture and changing things around the garden...
Painting flower pots...
Scattering seeds, planting more flowers and watering the entire garden back and front by hand every day…
I was delightedly surprised the other when I saw that Home Depot brought some lovely tea roses this year… something other than the Knockout edition, can you believe it! Those roses are so pretty, I just needed some... Oh I think my addiction to roses is back and our little white cottage is turning into another house in the roses… seriously!
Don’t blame me if I couldn’t resist… who could? These roses are too pretty… I bought two Paradise lilac, mauve, very fragrant hybrid tea rose, and a Queen Elizabeth grandiflora rose in a lovely shy pink, which I’d planted by the garage door…
The purple and white allium bulbs I planted this winter are blooming everywhere, and the Sedum 'Autumn Fire'… so easy to grow, so lovely in late summer and fall with their bright red to deep bronze red in color as fall turns into winter are blooming wonderfully. I discovered that you can stick a small stem/branch in the ground and they will put out roots… that's all you have to do to multiply them. These plants will root no matter what. Love them!
Last Christmas I bought a ruffle 3-tiered chair slipcover from Target for the chair in my living room. I wanted something similar for the two center chairs in the dinning room, but I wanted a shorter length and less ruffles…
I found the perfect two ruffle shorter version skirt slipcovers at Overstock.com.
An instant makeover and seasonal change to the room!
I know, I should iron them! ;)
We’re going back to cold weather again… it was freezing cold this morning and temperatures are dropping down to the 20’s tonight… yuck! I’ve brought in all my flower pots and the heater is on again. Our little white cottage feels warm and cozy. I love it that when evening falls, our bedroom is gently lighted up by fairy lights… the last light of day streaming in through the windows makes the room an enchanting little place to be… to rest and just put our cares aside for a few hours.
I hope you all are keeping warm tonight.
See you soon!
