Sweet Fence Project

My Mom had the cutest little fence sitting in her backyard..not being loved. Janae spotted it first, but I called it first that I wanted it. (sorry Janae) :)

It started out looking pretty worn out and I brightened it up.

I wrote "Sit a spell" on it, which all of my kids (including Janae) say they don't know what that means.

I love the little birds on top!

I think my front deck is looking so pretty--the flowers are blooming well now that summer seems to finally be here!

It is the perfect weather for sun tea--my favorite!

I finally got this little table painted white.

Yesterday Janae was here with all her animals. It was such a fun family day. Our house looked like a pet day care center. Here is Billie sitting in the window. White Persians go so well with my decorating:)

Janae and I found a cute cat scratching post at Goodwill. The kittens love it! They are sleeping in it now as I write this. Janae of course got some darling photos, being the pet photographer that she is.

My first Eden rose has bloomed! I am so excited. I don't know if I could like a rose better than my David Austin Wildeve..but this Eden rose looks lovely! I have wanted this rose for years!

It has a little rain damage--but I think rose time of year is here in Oregon now:)

Got these little wings from the etsy shop of Rosemary. She made them with clay and they were only a few dollars with free shipping--got these for me and one for Janae too. For those of you who know Rosemary you know these have to be oozing with creative energy. So sweet!

Hope your fourth was safe and fun! Our windows felt like they were going to break because of the fireworks--but all is well now!

Thanks for visiting!

The fence turned out so cute. Love the perky little birds. Your rose is gorgeous. We used to live in Oregon, almost 30 years ago.

Adore those kittens!

Yours and Janae's posts are always so much fun. I love that you live near each other and have similar likes and tastes. I thought Billie looked a little wistful. Have a great weekend.

Grandma Carolee said...

I"m so glad you were able to save the little fence and make it so pretty. It will be fun to "sit a spell" right there...maybe after one of our walks. Glad your whole family is having so much fun with the kittens.

Aledia said...

The fence is just fantastic and your porch looks so charming and inviting, a great place for sipping that sun tea.

Billie is just as handsome as can be and those kittens are just adorable!

Your pictures are all wonderful. Have a great weekend!

Your fence is so adorable! I'd love to sit a spell, I even know what it means, being from the south and all.
Super makeover, thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love that piece of fence, Sandy! That turned out so pretty. Your flowers look great. It has been so hot here {103 yesterday}, I'm not sure my watering is doing any good! I am always amazed when I see Janae's pictures of the fur babies. I don't know how she manages to get them still enough to get the picture. I love the one of you with the kittens in your profile!

Bliss said...

Ok those photos of the kittens are adorable!
