How are you doing???
I am doing great!
the weather has been totally amazing
for 4-5 days now & expected to
continue for another week!!
are you kidding me?
pinch me ~ please! ;)
75-80 degrees and just perfect.....
I just love this time of year....
sunshine ~ garden is started to bloom
birds are chirping.....heaven!
do you remember last year when I
posted about garden traditions?
.......no? (like I totally expect you all to
you can check it out here
I mean if you just can't get enough of my babbling....;)
well we have the fabulous (for me at least!!!)
tradition of Mr. Ticking and Toile
offering his beloved services for
a n y
garden project I've been pining for as a gift
to me for Mother's Day & my
it's my love language.....service....
build me a fence, plant me some roses,
construct an arbor, plant me a tree....
and I will know you love me! <3
the lawn was kinda scraggly
when I took this picture, but you can see
the split rail fence on the right
and the arbor next to the house....
each done a year at a time....to make his wife happy....:)
so these little acts of service are something I really look
forward to each year....but believe it or not ~
I almost forgot about it until yesterday!!!
so this year....
Mr. Ticking and Toile is we are
painting the back patio.....woo-hoo!!
we've been wanting to build a deck but that will
be awhile so this will be an interim step....
kinda like the looks of this.....
but not too interested in all the work that would
I know you've all seen this picture~
and it is by far my ALL TIME favorite
patio inspiration photo....
aside from highly coveting the amazing table...
I am loving the color of the patio floor ~
even though it's wood & ours is concrete...
so this is close to the shade I want to paint...
maybe a little more grey....
we have the same kind of ceiling/overhang...
painted white as well....
I think it will really brighten up the space....
so if all goes as planned
we will have a brand new patio (so to speak...)
did I tell you I planted a bunch of lavender all
around it last year????
they have gotten sooooo big
simply cannot wait
for them to bloom!
for me it's all about fragrance.....
ohhhh feed my senses please....;)
I'm really excited to see it bloom......
and really really excited to have a freshly
painted patio...to relax on.... while drinking in
the yummy fragrance.....
hope you all have a fabulous Mother's day!
