Pink Ladybug

My Mother found me the cutest little planter at a garage sale last week.

I decided to leave it all shabby chippy..but I did do a little makeover on the ladybug. Chantel tells me she thinks it is a beetle but I am sticking to it is a ladybug. In my fantasy world ladybugs are pink,


I keep believing that summer will show up here soon so I bought some heat tolerant flowers for it. I think they are so pretty for $3 at Fred Meyers.


My big petunia basket broke its nail yesterday and took a fall. It survived and I got a big heavy duty hook for it now. I look at this time 100 times a day. I love it! So nice of Eileen to get this for me. It just keeps growing and growing....


The kittens are still keeping us entertained!




They're such a joy to the whole family!


I hope everyone has a beautiful fun filled fourth!  We plan to spend time together as a family and cook hotdogs and smores.


We re going to try not to eat too much like Chantel's hamster (Walter) often does!


Wishing you a garden full of pink ladybugs!

Enjoy your day!

The planter is wonderful. I wouldn't have painted it either.
Your kittens are so cute. It's so much fun watching cats play, isn't it?
Happy 4th of July!

oh the planter is adorable! i LOVE It and that pink lady bug is to die for! your mom really scored on that one and at a garage sale (people don't know what they have and don't know what can be done as you have shown here : )

I am really happy that you enjoyed the animal post today -- i plan on doing more of them -- there are MANY people that don't know the dangers out there and it is really good to know -- especially in house like yours filled with the most precious little furbabies (Walter included : ) what a CUTIE!!!!!! They are all so wonderful and precious and deserve the very very best we can give them : )

Happy 4th -- enjoy and stay safe!
Oh...while i am here -- i would love to see our mom's garage sale find at Junkin Joes first linky party -- i feel bad asking -- but it is just so pretty : )

hugs to you ALL!!!! oh -- i think Chantrel is right -- beetles have more of an elongated body -- but come on -- it works perfectly as a pretty in pink ladybug (i won't tell : )

I"m so glad you like the little planter, and love how you painted the little bug and then got flowers that match the color. It is adorable.

Hi Sandy!

Well of course the lady bugs in your world would be PINK!

I hope summer arrives to your part of the world soon. I know my DD has been waiting... but her garden is beautiful, just like yours!

What a surprise for me to see rain (very light sprinkles) this morning. Now we will have some more blooms here in the desert :)

Btw, sometimes I think I look like Walter... stuffing my face :/

Thanks for sharing at my party and have a fun and safe 4th!
