I finished a little project. I bought those 2 chairs when we had that get away in Vermont – one I had designs on for the garden.
I had no interest in recaning the seat, so I had no problem paying $2 for this chair 😀 I picked up some paint for the outdoors:
The color is lilac. It kind of looks more blue in the pictures for some reason. Anyway after a few coats of paint, I rummaged around in my pot collection and found the perfect one to fit in the seat hole. That was a score! Then I headed to the nursery and picked up some sale annuals – one spike and 3 wave petunias and now I have a cute chair!
I have moved it around a few times. I kind of want it closer to the house than the back bed, but it should be in the sun.
I love when projects turn out and when they are low budget
I tried another recipe for a Tex-Mex rice and bean casserole. I used light sour cream, though, as I never use fat free.
This was good and we usually have most of the ingredients on hand, so it’s nice to whip something up quick.
I have my very first ever foxglove bloom! This plant is courtesy of Debby and it has a baby bloom.
I couldn’t wait until Friday to show it. We have been getting a lot of rain followed by sun, so things are popping out in the garden all over the place. It has been really humid, though. I was soaked after a 50-minute ride today:
I am just not a fan of the humidity. I don’t like the extreme dry of winter or really humid days. I am like the princess and the pea. All this humidity is supposed to bring in severe weather tonight.
At least the house stays nice and cool downstairs. Cement and brick walls do a good job regulating temps. Pixie is loving the house.
See how much she loves the purple suede chair? We keep one of those lint brushes in the table by the chair because of her hair. It’s going to be great when I finish the other chair to be the same…from the project pile that never seems to get smaller.
