Could It Be Spring?
The Princess of Cups is a messenger to the emotions. She is tender and idealistic, take her hand and flow with her. Although at times she is given to flights of imaginative fantasy, lets hope that the coming of spring is not one of them :)
I took this picture the other day as the snow was melting in the morning. We`ll need to dump a bit more sand over the bricks yet.....
This is why we have to make a raised pottager garden. Just look at that collection of water! By the fence is where I found that stuffed dog that freeaked me. It looked dead, wet and real if you happened to have read about that adventure.
This one above is from this morning. I`m afraid I haven`t been on the computer much this weekend so I`m still trying to visit all my blogs. My sister-in-laws birthday dinner today so reading will be postoned yet again.
Hubby has the foor all finished except for the trim along the sides now. I layed down the rug at the back and front doors, choosing a darkish brownish indoor/outdoor because it`s easier to care for and won`t get dull and dirty looking. The front entrance.... we have to sort of treat like a mud room, without the mudroom and only a long low bookcase separating it from the hall and frontroom. Still wondering if we should, afterall, have a wall going up from it. And the back is where we`ll be coming in and out from the garden. No pictures yet, everything is still plain for now. I`m not going to be as cluttery as I`ve always tended to be, I`ve decided. At least that and loads of green with splashes of something brilliant in complimentary colours and garden accents is decided. Oh and not pink and all floral and frilly, but cozy enough to want to have oneself wrapped in the room. I like floral and frilly, have done it many times over the years but I`m tired of it now and it`s not practical with men and dogs. Now if only I could find some pictures!
The boys came this weekend and I made some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies to munch on and went to the library for some decorating ideas. Still haven`t found much though in what I`m looking for. I`m afraid in the end I`ll have to "wing" it. That could be scary LOL
Hope everyone is having a great last bit of the weekend that always goes waaaaaaay too fast!
