More Fun Things in the Yard
Another fun piece in the yard..
a rusty chime that I have had
hanging there for years.
One of my all time fave
pieces I picked up at
A metal ant!
Brought him home and painted
him again and he has been
climbing this tree for years now.
With that said...oh my GOSH ants have
been HORRIBLE this year. I usually
get them in the kitchen in the
spring. They showed up mid March
and I finally just the other day got
rid of them.
For the longest it was rolls and rolls
following here and there, the last
month I have not seen them as much,
I drop a crumb I don't see and within
seconds it seems they are all
The other day was out and noticed lines
of them all over the outside of
the house, working an traveling
and oh course going in or under...
I really don't like using chemicals with
the pets but this was on the house
and up high....I think the reason
they are not coming in is
cause I killed them outside!
Moving on...I have shared this before,
the vine in the crack of the
I pick up a rock when I go traveling
or on vacation to paint and put
in the garden.
This is from Knoxville where my
My colors on this one was
not the best choice.
Pigeon Forge TN
That is 3 cities back to back in
the mountains of TN.
La Mesa Calif.
Del Mar Calif.
Speaking of rocks..
I got this one at Dollar General
many years ago.
Not been that long ago since I
posted the mushroom I painted
for the yard.
Thinking of doing one more for
a grouping, maybe taller than
I love the tin stars. I
have these and another
Well look at here...the other set!
The J I made for Jackson.
And check out the table with
A tall candle stick holder - Goodwill
and the metal wall decoration from
Goodwill. Attached with E6000.
This is one the front of the shed
beside the doors.
Hanging above it is this sign.
Sitting on the deck I threw together
a couple more signs for the
garden area to hang on the shed!
They have been sealed I just
need to put a hanger on them
and get them hung.
While painting those signs I did
a couple for the deck.
I found this in the pantry the
other day, another Goodwill buy
a few years ago, egg gathering basket.
I love the trike.
I actually have another in the
shed somewhere but have not
been about to locate it yet.
Hangs above the doorbell.
Hangs on the front porch.
Dollar General buy years ago..
My rocks, garden stuff hold out year
after year cause I put them in
the shed over the winter.
My hummers stopping area, right
off the deck for mine and Lily's
Yep...I put broken plates in my
planters for the pop of fun.
Course I just did this recently also, the grilling
station. Handmade table also from
a piece of tile and a plant
stand flip upside down.
I think it was Debbie that asked to
see an over all look.
Here you go Debbie.
My favorite all time view
from the deck to the backyard.
Here is from mid way in the yard to the
house. Keep in mind, I only own
my half, this is what is called
a zero lot line.
Shot from behind the shed.
I looked at this the other day
and although I would not see it
unless I walked back there, I am
thinking this is a total waste of
a blank canvas!
Other side of the shed, cheek beside.
Down the driveway.
Looking down the driveway.
Should have removed the ladder
and hose and things would have looked
better but....I did good to get the pics
Heat has been TERRIBLE
for the last 4 or 5 days. The itchy
bug crawling feeling has let up
but with that and the heat my hands
and feet swell. Wind is blowing and the
eyes feel all yucky.
But it is only suppose to be 89 today
instead of the 95 of yesterday with no
breeze. Animals and I have not been
spending as much time out on
the deck come noon or so.
I did however attend the bday bash
Sat. night. So much fun. Took lots of
pics for James to have for his bday.
Will be posting those and info on
their place tomorrow......
Have yourself an amazing day,
