Happy Friday Friends!!!

Oh I know I've let you guys down this week - I've jus' been a really busy girl!!! Helping decorate for a wedding this weekend - so I've had lots and lots of projects. I'll share pictures with you next week.

But in the meantime - I'm wishing you a happy Friday and a blessed weekend. And speaking of Fridays - won't be long we'll be introducing our "Fresh Flower Fridays".

This is something I've wanted to do for a long time - I'll have a lil' roadside stand with freshly arranged flowers from my cutting garden - jus' waiting to find a home - ready to liven up a table for Sunday dinner, to place by your bedside or better yet - maybe deliver to someone special. Everything will be in mason jars tied with pretty ribbons - Oh I can jus' see it now - I've even got a special cart!!! Oh sometimes I wish my mind would slow down a bit!

So in closing - I'm reminding you of a lil' project from last year - that water hose garden wreath. While you are doing some spring cleaning around the house and in the potting shed - don't discard that leaky hose - make something special out of it!



You'll need an old hose, maybe a rusty garden tool, a lil' bucket, some tattered gloves, some flowers if you'd like - and there you go - the perfect "recycled" wreath for the outside of your home or building.



Have a happy weekend friends,
Cathy

I do, I do have an old hose laying in the yard. And rusty hand tools and an old bucket!!! What a great idea for my tool shed. The wheels are turning! Thank you.
I've had the same thoughts of a roadside cutting garden but don't live on a road that I could do that on *sigh*

Every new post that you do makes me wish that your shop and roadside stand, was right down the street from me. The hose wreath is so adorable! I really like how you finished it off with the gloves and flowers. I can't wait to see the wedding pictures that you share.

This is amazing because just yesterday I started to throw away an old hose and remembered your post from last year. I was going to have to go back to try and find it to see it again....NOW I know some things to put with it. THANKS SO MUCH!!!
