Secret Garden Swap-sneak and Spring

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Sarah of My So Called Junky Life had a lovely garden swap and my partner was the sweet Julie Ann--just a sneaky peeky since she won't get her goodies till mid week!

I created a garden themed basket. The basket was so in this little junk antique store near my new home; it needed some work but was perfect! More pictures to come of my goodies! Lately with the move into our new house, my artwork is leaning towards whites, creams, vintage laces, vintage music and ledger papers, and nature inspired items. Lots of white themed items coming soon.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was absolutely gorgeous here in South Carolina, 70's sunny and beautiful blue skies.

I have to share some my 'new' spring garden. The past owner's were in love with flowering color and I am so beside myself to see what summer brings!

The moss covered potted plant on the table was an Easter gift and has since bloomed 4 different flowering bulbs, daffodils, crocuses, some little white type flower. I 'think' this is a cherry blossom tree but don't quote me on that. I'm working on my Southern Living books to help me determine what kind of garden I do have. Look at my beautiful bradford pear (my sinus's not so much).

If you haven't guessed, flowers are one of my loves. I'm not a great gardener but I'm trying to learn. I would love to do this all the time.

Last, a sweet picture of my little one in her first easter egg hunt (I know she is 2.5!) Gosh, I keep thinking how old I'll be when she's a teen-lordy I'll be in my fifties! But God finally blessed me late in life after many hardaches with my one and only which I'm eternally grateful for but darn those terrible tantrums are mind bending!

Off for some French Roast coffee with French Vanilla creamer my little treat to myself.


3 Sweet Thoughts:

  1. Hi Kris!

    Welcome to blog land AND to your new beautiful home and garden!

    I found you through the comment you left Tiffany (shabbyscraps) and being the nosey person I am, I wanted to come check out your new beautiful!

    I wish you lots of fun here and I hope you meet some wonderful friends.

    Nice meeting you Kris, take care~

    Isn't Julie Ann the sweetest? I'll finally get the chance to meet her in person in Savannah at Jenn's event!

  3. Hi, Kris.

    I saw your comment on Jodie's blog and jumped over to visit. I'm a new blogger, too -- one of Jodie's many students.

    I just wanted to say welcome and tell you that you're blog is wonderful. I love the flowers. They are gorgeous. I'm still waiting for spring to come to Montana.
