SpRiNg FeVeR!!!!

Yes I have a bad case of it.....I have been digging, plantin',seedin',potting, pulling and loving every minute of it!
As you may recall we have been in this home for a year now and the yard was pretty much a blank slate. We have put up 68pieces of privacy fence, built a barn and have started improving the one flower bed and making new ones.

I could work in the yard everyday as long as the weather is nice and IF I had an endless supply of money to buy plants!

This is just a peek at what I have done and now I need a truckload of mulch!

Now, I know what you are thinking.........last time we talked we were inside the house......tearing out walls and such...well ...... here is some progress
We can now eat at the table! Check out my chairs I got for 10$ each

I just gave a little paint, sanding and stain!

Here are a few more redos....

We still have to wrap the beam and the 4 x 4 column in the middle of the room ( my son calls it a primitive stripper pole!) but we had to put the inside stuff on hold.....to get some of the outside things done before it gets to hot. Now that we have finished the fence our dogs can run freely, so we wanted to get that done and most important
we are putting up the pool that we packed up and brought from the other house! We have it up and with the new liner it looks great. Now we have to add the deck that we also moved from the other house.....so when those really hot days get here we will have a place to chill!


  1. Wow I love all that you have done! And what beautiful chairs for $10 a piece! Your fireplace is awesome! :)

  2. Everything looks so nice, you do a beautiful job on decorating, in and out. Love how your chairs came out, really nice look and so much better than the over priced new ones.


  3. I love to plant in old things also, and your chairs for $10.00 what a buy! Enjoy each day in your yard!
