Weekend Garden Parties are FF over at Tootsie's and GBBD over at Carol's.. Drop by and link up or look around at some awesome gardens with lots of garden inspiration.
We have had rain at some point everday for the last week or more. Yesterday we had 1 and 7/10 here, across town over 4 inches fell in two hours...feast or famine...sigh ..I went out to the gardens to take photos this morning I spotted my trusty rusty angel, she had been spun around in her container, it just seemed as if she were saying, "What will be will be." ..I need to adopt that attitude.
Some of you may remember the large Oak Tree right by the corner of our home had to be cut down some months back. My husband had the tree doctors leave me a container as the tree was hollow. After months of my husband trying to get soil to compact in the trunk, I now have my stump container. 25 Peacock Orchids have sprouted, there are a few Alyssum seedlings in there too. The stump container is about 4 feet tall.
Rain drenched Susans
A most delightful pink Zinnia
The Crapes are beginning to bloom

Ms. Doris Three Doors Down has over 80 Hydrangeas...she is always rooting them and passing them along. This is one she gifted me last year, quite an interesting bloom. Do you know it? A few weeks back Ms. Doris broke her arm...I am a terrible neighbor as I have not checked on her other than through speaking with Mr. Doris....sigh

Just completed a custom order for Alison - most of you know her as Bonney Lassie.
She sent the quote and the color scheme she was interested in. This is a 12 x 12 ceramic floor tile made into a custom wall hanging.
The dimensional sealer is so shiny it really casts a glare...these can be used for tie tacks, lapel pins, hat pins....
Some Christmas Pins....I am preparing for a Craft Fair in November. To see these and more click my FB Business Page or Etsy up on the right. Orders can be placed through email as well as Etsy. These sites will be updated over the weekend.
*There is a place on my FB page for suggestions of a theme for a give-a-way tile in celebration of my Etsy Shop opening. It will be a smaller size though. Please stop by and add your suggestion to be entered.*
