This is Christmas

I am jumping into the Christmas sharing but I have to say that I really hesitate. Especially after I see all the gorgeous Christmas decorating out there. Seriously I love looking at it but I don't have time to do that much decorating here. Wish I did but I am working full time and leading a pretty busy life. I know, just like everyone else, right?

Anyway I thought I would post a couple pictures just to join the fun.

This is more than a Christmas tree, it is a memory tree. So many of the ornaments are full of memories of our life. I love unpacking them!

Yup, truly is the real reason and the only reason that matters!

We don't 'do' santa clause as most do. As we told the boys growing up, santa is a cute story but not real. Why do I want to give him credit for all the cool toys anyway?



Don't you love the 'joy'? Got this and another at Target for $3!

Simple. I like simple.

Including our family gingerbread house.







Merry Christmas everyone!

Garden Tours oh my!

Do you wanna know what one of my favorite things about summer is?

Garden tours. Love garden tours. I have two that I go to every year. One in the town in which we live and the other 20 minutes away in a town I would love to live in. But, there are more. Definitely more nearby. I just run out of time and brain energy. Because, inevitably I come home exploding with ideas of additions and changes to my gardens.

This year, however, our local garden tour was highly disappointing. Not sure if they are running out of houses to feature or what. However the other, in a neighboring town, was amazing and never disappoints!

Here are some features of this years tour:


So simple but cute!

Love this! I make my own garden globes from Quik Crete. Need to do some more and recreate this.

Always love these little garden houses/sheds


Next Project!

This was adorable!

Love the use of this bird bath

Garden sauna!

Beautiful hydrangas!

Love this and I have a crock to use!
