Photos of our Landscaping and other stuff

Oh my, I can't believe it's been 10 days since my last post! Goodness ~ Well, I've got some photos to share with all of you ~ We've been doing a lot of work in our landscaping around our house; planting new pretty perennials, staining our side deck, putting in a new brick walkway off our front porch, and adding a smaller walkway off from that.

First, I want to show some photos of what's to come on Ebay, and some pretty finds I got today....

This is a pair of shabby style lamp bases that will be listing soon on Ebay..



Earlier today I went to a local consignment shoppe called The Corner Closet, and found this pretty pair of soft pale blue valances with gorgeous lace ~ I have these hanging up in the windows in my sewing room....




And I found this wonderful Victorian style small lampshade, that fits perfectly on one of the vintage lamps that I found last month at the Flea Market ~ I love the pretty ribbon rosettes!...



Below are photos to show you of our landscaping that surrounds the side and front of our house ~ you'll see 2 photos of the new climbing rose that I planted recently (and boy does it smell heavenly!), some of the beautiful Foxglove plants, our Rhododendrons, and the pretty Calla Lillies that I planted this spring.



Here you will see our new brick walkway, as well as the new stone path....



And here is our side deck with it's new Redwood stain...we need to put 1 more coat on, but need to wait a few days after we get thru these rainy days we are going to have...







This is my "Garden within a Garden" ~ inside of it are my Bleeding Hearts and my Astilbies...









I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of the photos around our house ~ we've still come some more work to do ~ more white stone to put out, and new Red Bark mulch to touch up in areas, but it should all be done in plenty of time for my daughter's Baby Shower, which will be August 6th ~ I'm planning to have it on our side deck, so please pray that the weather will be beautiful!

Until next time sweet friends!! Have a wonderful week everyone :)
