The Back Yard

Our back yard is a boring disaster. I'd love to put down some pavers and maybe a shaded sitting area a little bit away from the house. Here are just a few images of yards I like.

Bench Idea For Patio

I love this bench idea for our patio. One under the dining room window and another near the grill.

Looks like it wouldn't be too terribly expensive to do.

Whatcha think, honey?

Covered In Fabric

Love these! I have bunch of old fabric from my mother-in-law. I could so do this!

The Poppies

I am so honored to have been nominated for the Poppies over at Poppytalk, one of my very favorite blogs. I was nominated in 2 categories: Favorite Handmade Crafter and Affordable Art. If you are so inclined, you can vote for me here

Scored some Pyrex

I FINALLY went to the flea market near our house. It's not one of the icky ones that resell sunglasses and purses. They mostly had old houseware - furniture, china, etc.

I was amazed to see that they had LOADS of lighting fixtures. I saw several chandeliers that I want. And some nice globes. But hubby talked me out of getting a globe for my collection.

I just need to find the red one...

Missing My Computer

Originally uploaded by CarolinaCottage
Our home computer has contracted a very insidious virus. We can kinda work on the computer, but not without constantly moving windows that keep popping up.
I didn't realize how much I depended on that hunk of metal. I need to upload photos and list new items. I'll try to do that tonight and see how far I get before the "blue screen of death" takes the system down.
I wish hackers would use their talents for good instead of evil.
