Line Dried Clothes, New Signs & More Gardening

 
Lots of photos . . .
better grab a cuppa :)
 
 
 
More line dried clothes.
 
 Do any of you have sun sensitive skin?
Well I do and each year around August
my arms rebel and brake out in a rash.
 
Last year I went to the Goodwill and purchased 
a few long sleeve white shirts. 
I wore them while working out in the sun 
and I'm happy to report . . .
Last year the rash did not show up :)
 
Something you might want to try,
or to pass on to a friend that might
benefit from this information.
 
On to my new signs . . .





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In my last post you saw the main garden filled with
Peppers & Tomatoes.
These garden beds are out behind the 
Art Barn.
 
 Cucumbers
Pumpkins
 
Onions & Green Beans
 

Three years ago these were three bare-root raspberries.

Look how they have grown . . .


 

Can you say raspberry jam :)
 

I've also started rooting some of my succulents. 
 
Well, that's it . . .
better get back to work.
 
Keep Smiling!

Wonderful May Weather



This week I have been enjoying  
the great outdoors.
Not on an adventure,
but around the yard :)



I lost half of my roses 
due to our cold hard winter.
So I've been nurturing the ones that made it
and replacing those that didn't.








I was delighted that my Bleeding Heart
made it through our freezing winter :)
I think they are so pretty.


 I purchased this plant this spring.
It had no name tag, but I thought it was a Peony. 


Now I'm thinking a Poppy.
Do any of you know?


The chives are already blooming.
I gave them a hair cut, after taking
this photo, LOL.


We planted the main garden with 
tomatoes and peppers.
We also installed drip-lines . . .
this truly put a smile on my face.
No more watering :)




36 Peppers



39 Tomatoes.
All from seed :)

I will be doing a lot of canning
and sharing with friends and neighbors.



The weather was so nice that I even
hung our sheets and quilts on the line. 
I love line dried bedding :)

Well, that was my week.

I hope that yours was as lovely.

Keep Smiling!

Fancy Farm Girl Vintage Market




Fancy Farm Girl Vintage Market
came to town.


So I went down to check it out,
just to see if it is something
that I might like to do. 


There were some booths with signs
to sell, but none like mine.


I think it might be fun to have a booth,
but it is a lot of work to set up a booth,
and then take it all down a few hours later.


I do want to sell my signs,
but I'm just not sure of how
I want to go about it. 

I'm very open to suggestion :)
If you have any ideas please share them.


Don't you just love this old doll carriage?
 



These whirligigs didn't photograph
well but believe me they were incredible.


Pink boots anyone . . .
cute but not my color, LOL. 




This is what I purchased.
She was asking $70, but I got it for $50.
What she didn't know was that ever since 
I saw Carol's at Art and Sand, 
I have been looking for one.
See Carol's here:

I love this old machine and everything about it works,
if only I knew where to find a new ribbon, LOL.


I will leave you with this . . .
Our lilacs are almost finished for the year,
but I managed to bring in one more bouquet.

Thanks for stopping by
and for your friendship.
It means so much!

Keep Smiling
