You are my Sunshine

Sorry I've been a bit absent this week.
Honestly , I just didn't feel much like writing.
Lots of craziness going on in my life right now.
Fortunately , all good.

I have sold my building and getting out of a franchise is no easy task !
Plus I've been looking for a vendor space to move my ReStyle business to.
I have a few leads , but kinda nervous to take that step.

I've got so much inventory to work with and ideas for all of it ,
so I know it won't give it up.
Just have to decide which direction to go with it.

I've been a bit crochet crazy the last couple weeks.
My projects are getting better and better.
Working on baby stuff for the nieces.
 I'm not sure if it's going to be a surprise or not.
Knowing me , not .
I can't keep a secret !
So if I give them to them early , you can bet your bootie ( pun intended ) I'll be sharing them here also .

Today I going to share something that makes me happy no matter how crazy my life gets .

Some of my garden .
I hope you're not thinking  ,  oh no , not another garden post ,
Please don't think that :)

You know I have a Moon Garden ,  I've written about it many, many times.
But I also made a " Sunshine  Garden ".

Remember my old table by the garage ?
I change the displays seasonally.
If you missed those posts , you can see them here and here.

This display was half way inspired by this " Pin"
I loved the old metal containers repurposed as planters.
But I wanted more colorful plants out front.
No need for two Moon Gardens.

I used an assortment of yellow and orange flowers -
hence , the " Sunshine Garden ".
 It's not all in full bloom yet , but it's getting there.

I used other old junk too ,
ladders , chairs , wooden crates.

I debated painting these chairs yellow , what do think ?

 Succulent display on an old step ladder.

 Some of them even have orange , yellow and red tips.

I can't wait till it's all in full bloom !

I also have to share one of my latest crochet projects.

Sorry I take terrible pictures  !
This one was taken with my phone , so it's even worse.
But these flip flops for Addie turned out SOOOO cute !

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.
We are off to the Trailerhood II for the long weekend .
