I wanted to give a special thanks to Mike for plowing my garden this year!
Mike's newly rebuilt tiller.
Isn't she pretty?
Thanks again Mike!
This weekend the girls picked the first veggie.
I made some eggplant parmesan.
Wasn't too bad.
Have a good evening.

Remember that cedar patio set I bought last season? I need some motivation in painting it. I dreamt of sipping iced tea and reading a book while sitting under the umbrella. Well, I got the umbrella and have had several books this summer. However, I've only painted three chairs.
HELP! I need MOTIVATION!!!!
On another note...
I made these basket liners for Mother's Day.
Well, mother decided to change her gift. She tea stained the fabric, added ties and spray painted the basket.
I suppose it looks pretty good.
Have a restful day.

My mother picked-up four chairs at a church rummage sale, then gave me two additional to makeover.
What's a girl to do with all these chairs?
(Pics aren't great. I took them at 7am.)
Besides trying to figure out what to do with these chairs, I've been on a baking frenzy.
Muffins and bread are my forte this week.
I made these blueberry muffins from the Martha Stewart Baking Handbook. I give them a B-. Not my favorite.
As for the garden...
It's coming to life!
Look at the cucumber plant I bought weeks ago.
No. You are not crazy.
This eggplant was mislabeled cucumber.
What a surprise!
Everything else seems to be coming in nicely.
Last but not least...
Here are some cool yard sale finds.
$0.50 each wire basket
$5 wooden box
Hope you're having a great weekend!

Remember that purse thing I bought last year at a yard sale?
I painted and stenciled it.
And there you have ...

I know I'm the worst blogger ever!
I miss you all.
This picture describes my life.
Life has been non-stop!
I finally planted my garden two weeks ago, so hopefully I'll have corn by October.
Maddie has officially graduated from preschool.
Poppy is well.
He has officially RETIRED!
Every time I see him, he is in a Hawaiian shirt.
I've been working on some projects.
Can't wait to show you!
Hope all of you are having a good summer!
See you soon.
