Keeping A Wedding Secret

I am sorry I was away most of last week but, I was on a secret wedding mission ;).


Styling an Iced Tea Station

Hi Guys!  Summer is finally here in Massachusetts.  I mean really here!  My car thermometer read 100 degrees yesterday.  Crazy!!  With the hot days of summer coming I thought it would be timely to share my decorated Iced Tea Station.  Hopefully, you will be having plenty of summer occasions where these ideas might be helpful :).



As old and ratty as this garden bench is, it is the starting point for my Iced Tea Station.  I don't think I've ever used it for gardening but, it works out very well for serving beverages, appetizers and desserts at parties and social gatherings.  Most of the time I use it as a decorative piece on my deck. (I know, it really isn't that pretty, is it?) One of these days I am going to repaint and re-stain the poor old thing.  I'm sure such care would do a world of good for it but, for today, my old garden bench is going to have to do, as is.

A Special Garden Dedication

Hello, Everyone!  I am finally online again and able to tell you about the touching and amazing day I was honored to be a tiny part of last week.  It was so very special and I am excited to share it with you.




My Happy Fourth of July Garden

**Hi Everyone!!  Sorry I was away last week.  As I quickly mentioned on Friday, I was without internet, TV and home phone last week.  Boy, you realize how much you need those things when you lose them!  Anyway, as I continue to work on my new post for this week, I wanted to share in Celebrate The USA Link Party 2017 and share my Fourth of July garden from summers past one more time.  I loved my side garden that year. It was so colorful and sooo red, white and blue!  I hope you don't mind going down memory lane again.  I guess this time around we will call it, "My Patriotic Garden."

So here we go....one more time →

Been Off the Grid

Hi, Everyone!  It doesn't look like I will be able to publish a post this week.  I have been without tv, landline phone and the internet for two full days!!!  Verizon is outside working on the problem right now but, I don't think I will have time to edit my post and get it published before the end of the day.  I had hoped to be able to share some of the experiences I have had this week and the special event I was honored to be a small part of but, it looks like that will have to wait until next week.  In the meantime, I hope you have a great weekend!



Adding Whimsy to a Somewhat Carefree Late Spring Garden



Hi Everyone!  Hope all is well.  I am in the midst of preparing for some special events that are coming up in the next few weeks so, I have been very busy with that. I hope to be sharing those journeys with you soon. However, whenever I have a moment AND it isn't raining (It's been raining all day today!) I try to work on my yard and flower beds. I must admit I have not gotten very far in that task but, I am plugging along.

Farewell to the Old Picnic Table and Pfaltzgraff Cape May Tablescape


Hi Everyone!  I hope you are having a good week.  The weather is finally getting better here in Massachusetts and I am looking forward to finally getting into the garden.  One thing that will be missing from my yard's landscape this summer, however, will be the old cedar picnic table that has been in the side yard for so many years I have lost count.  The poor thing has been on its last legs for years now but, it has been the backdrop for so many of my blog and business pictures that I am very sad to see it go.
