Just put up a post with pictures, they were there when I posted, and then they were gone. I went back and added the pictures, they are in the middle of the post, don't know what is going on with blogger, but I wish they would leave my pictures were I put them. Vicky

For some reasons when I posted my last post the pictures did not appear, so I went back and added the pictures they turned up in the middle of the post, so they are not where they need to be, but at least you can see the pictures. Anyone ever had this problem of just boxes showing up with x's in them? Everyone take care. Vicky
Well I have been doing a little summer decorating lately with some of my primitive finds. Yes I have been back to Settler's Crossin, good thing I don't live to close we would never eat again. LOL. I had found the cutest little pillow on my last trip down there, it has a little blue bird stitched on it and it reads O Sing Unto the Lord - Annie Frank. Thought it looked cute in a small old chair I had picked up at an antique mall. I just love this area, right under a window next to a chair I usually have my second cup of coffee. Thought it would be nice for Oliver at some point to sit in, may be going to move this table to his room at some point, thats what I love about decorating moving things around, never dull.
I have been looking for more blues to add to my summer decorating, I always like and think of blues for some reason in the summer. Last trip to Settler's Crossin I came across an old childrens quilt, with lots of blues on it. Also picked up the little doll with the blue dress on to add that special touch for summer. The large doll, Gardening Martha, I order from Jackie at T.F.C.Folkart, just had to have her because of my love of gardening. Love how she is dressed in an old feedsack, just perfect with the red on it and the little rake, nice summer touch. I didn't have a lot of things for summer decorating, nice to find a few items this year.

Thought I would try to get my gardens finished before it got to hot, well its already to hot, its been in the upper 90's, but suppose to be in the lower 90's this week, guess I better take advantage of the cooler weather. LOL. Here is one of my favorite large pots that sits outside my den window, I have a sitting area here, and you can see where the weeds have come up through the cracks of the pavers here, need to attend to that, my next thing I am working on this week my sitting areas around my chimney.
This is in the same bed, my annabelle's are blooming really well this year, you can see them from my kitchen window. The purple hydrangea was given to me by my mother-in-law, she had rooted it for me. The old birdbath post was my husbands grandmother's and the rooster sundial I found at hobby lobby, just added a cute touch to the flower bed. And my favorite thing is the iron fencing, reminds me of my trips to Charleston, S.C. and seeing their gardens, many of them through iron gates. We had planned a trip this spring to go to Charleston, but decided to wait until Oliver gets out of the hospital, maybe in the fall we will make the trip. Speaking of Oliver, he is now 3lbs. 1 oz. and is doing well, he has a little breathing problem like he gets to comfortable and forgets to breath, they say it is common among early babies, he will out grow it. Hope to have new pictures soon, well better get back to working on clearing out Oliver's room, we are going to be moving out my antique bed this weekend over to my oldest son's house, Justin. I am going to be buying a crib for that room and then the fun part decorating it. Hope everyone has a great day, oh hope to be posting some of my goodies I have found lately, yes I have been back to Settler's Crossin and to Gibson Mill Antique Mall, really neat stuff I found and a new shop I want to go to soon.
