Hi! I'm sure glad it's Friday!! I was trying to clean up my posts that I've had this morning-I wanted to delete the ones that were just drafts that I've never finished & I accidentally deleted the one I posted last night! I was sooo mad I had to get up & do something else for awhile! Ughhh! I went & cleaned the house & now that I've mellowed out I decided to try again! lol So in case you missed it, I redid my washboard & turned it into a candle board this time...I think it turned out ok - think I'm going to get me some longer candles this weekend though.
Here's the pic:
It's dreary & cold again here in Ohio BUT it's supposed to be in the 70's tomorrow & maybe even 80 on Sunday!! Whoo hoo! I can't wait. I want to get started on my back yard. It's a mess! We've lived here for 3 summers now & I've got the front of the house pretty well done, all except I need some taller "junk" for beside my steps. But unfortunately my back yard is just yuck! We need to fix our leaning fence, plant some grass, I want a patio....I could go on & on! lol I've got my list ready & some inspiration pics too, now I just need some good weather!! Here's what I'm dealing with:
this is the end behind our garage -see my poor fence? we painted it last summer but never fixed it
here's the other end by our house

I want to put a patio area under the tree -it's our only shade. Also I'm trying to decide what to do with the little concrete pad we've got too-it's not big enough for our table & chairs but hubby thinks we should keep it- So I'm trying to decide if we should "expand" it or just remove it?!? It's not in my "ideal" location either
here's 1 of my front flower beds -see the chair? my mom made it for me for Mother's Day last year but I think I need to move it over & put something else right there-maybe a cool old broken dresser with some flowers in it or a birdhouse on a pole?!?
here's my arbor my hubby made for me last fall -it's from an old porch my dad tore off of one of his houses - I really love it but I'm thinking about painting it - maybe like a red or even mustard or even a teal blue?!? Our house is soooo white! lol
So there's what I plan to work on this weekend...hopefully when you see my yard again it'll be MARVELOUS!! lol
Hope everyone has a great weekend & can enjoy some sunshine where ever you are!
