A Rose for All Tablescapers…you deserve it


Starting with a shot of one of my roses…and I’m not a “real” rose gardener…this one grows on the privacy fence and totally takes care of itself…I actually pulled a few weeds from around it yesterday…it will probably kick up its heels and die now…

Now, on to the tablescaping part…I’d like to start by complimenting all of you bloggers who do these tablescapes, you are one dedicated bunch…this stuff is hard…and all of you make it look so easy…so my hat is off to each one of you for giving us such beautiful pictures to drool over…and I truly appreciate all of your efforts…

Come on to my porch…I cut some fresh roses for you…I really did…they smell nice…

I just couldn’t resist this miniature chair…

My old birdhouse looks pretty good with a new “whitewash”…

“Fire King Ware” made in USA…I don’t know if its old or new…just caught my eye and it was cheap…

Just “Keeping it Real” here…GW dishes, right out of the car trunk…boy do they have some sticky tape…OK, I’m a lazy gardener…I even found some lost clippers…hubby has mowed over them twice…lol…

Here’s the “photo assistant”…with her new summer haircut…

…sticky tape…uggghhh

My little Fostoria basket with those roses I picked for all of you…

Thanks for coming…now I need to

  1. Sweep the porch
  2. Load new GW dishes into dishwasher
  3. Put the garden tools away
  4. Cook something for our “real dinner”…
  5. Put my feet up and watch “Dr. Phil”..its 88 degrees here…

Thanks for visiting…
