HAPPY FRIDAY!!!





Just wanted to stop in & say a quick "HI"!!!
It is raining here today so we won't be lounging in our pool at all ~ the poor kid won't know what to do all day!! lol
 SO I'm going to attempt to catch up on some housework & get started on my bedroom.  Thanks to you guys who left your opinion...it looks like majority agrees the wallpaper should go & the walls (paneling & all) should be the same color.  Whoo hoo! That's really what I was hoping to hear to be honest.  We'll see how I feel about it after I get started! lol 

Before I go I want to share a few pics of my flowers ~ my hydrangea is finally trying to bloom.  I have 2 plants ~ one in the front bed & one out back.  The one out back doesn't even attempt to bloom & the one up front only has gotten this 1 bloom for the 2 years I've had it. :( Not sure what it needs but I'm excited it's finally trying to bloom.


And my hollyhocks finally started to bloom too!! My sister has some too & hers have been blooming for weeks & she only lives like 15 mins away!

I just LOVE these! My grandma always had a ton of them behind her garage ~ they were always so pretty!

Well I'm off to get to work ~ wish me luck!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

I always think of your grandmother when I see hollyhocks. She would be glad you like them too. You're doing better than I with the hydrangea. Looks good.

Goodness Rachel, that Angie didn't seem to feel sorry for ya.(ha) Bet you could get it done lots faster with a Sister's help, huh??? Guess she hates stripping wallpaper as bad as the rest of us. Good luck, and I can't wait to see the finished project. Have a great weekend.

Isn't it funny how plants are so picky Rachel? I have peonies planted within 15 feet of each other and some bloom, some don't. Enjoy your redo! ~*~Lisa

LOVE hydrangeas and hollyhocks....Can't grow hydrangeas for squat around here either....Makes me so sad....Hollyhocks to great, until The Great Wind comes...I stake them in anticipation of The Great Wind, but it never fails....just as they are in their blooming glory, down they go! Glad you got a consensus on your bedroom plan...always lends a bit of confidence to a project...Have a great weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
