May Giveaway Day

Everyone join in, this should be FUN. I missed out on the last one, don't intend to miss out on this one too. I am giving away some of my wool stash, possibly some hand dyed, possibly a little kit. Don't want anyone to be disappointed, these are a few of my hand dyed wools, I have some solids and some tweeds too, whatever I decide it will be nice I promise. This is wool out of my personal stash.
I will pick the winner by the person who has the most creative answer to "What will you do with the wool" I am Not looking for the answer "use it in an applique project"

This time around I think I will just mail with in the USA (Sorry Int'l bloogers), this is my first time, and I want to see how it goes. If it goes well, I will make sure do ship int'l next time around.

I will pick the winner on May 31st and ship my little gift by June 3rd, probably sooner.

Have FUN!!!!!!!!!! BE CREATIVE and come up with a plan.

Vintage Thingie Thursday

I decided to take it outside this week. Hubby went to CLEAN SWEEP for the township (Where you take all your old paint cans etc) and came home with these two wicker chairs, just need a little paint and they will be good as new. The CHICKEN FEEDER (Yes it really is an old chicken feeder) My Girlfriend did a little decorating on and gave it to me to put plants in. It has been too cold to get it planted yet but hopefully this weekend we can get some plants in it. We put DUSTY MILLERS in the bottom and wave petunias in the top. LOOKS PRETTY COOL when we get it all done up. IT is GOOD TO BE BACK. Haven't been able to get here for the past couple of weeks, DD moved home and into my sewing room (Where my computer is) so time is precious in there now. :)

Some Garden Photos

Here are some pics of our flower beds, the rock garden is a WIP, we are making it bigger (Higher and wider) you can see behind the wall that it is mowed, we are going to expand it there. Never mind the hole in the door or the dead hanging basket, it is still too cold here to put out bedding plants or anything. The pansies wintered over all by themselves. TOUGH LITTLE THINGS and they have been blooming ALL SPRING, thru the snow, cold, frosts (Last night we had another frost) etc. So I had to take a photo of the hardy little things. our Hen N Chix is doing good too, we planted that last year, the phlox you can see in the pansie photo are a year or so old too. We need ot paint the grating underneath the deck too. YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK AT THE PLANTS NOT THE REST OF THE STUFF, oh yea, the bird bath was a Mothers Day Present a couple of years ago and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.
