It's Springtime, supposedly. Time to start to plant my urns.
I took all the christmas greens out and they looked so bare.
I picked up some fake pussywillow branches from Dollarama $1.00 cant beat that , and they will last longer than the real ones that tend to bloom soon after you cut them I notice.
Picked up a couple of pots of Daffodils and a tray of assorted pansy's in spring like colours.
I know they say "more is less" but when it comes to flowers I think the opposite is true.
I added my pussy willows and I think it looks quite springy too me. It has been a slow start to spring in these parts.
Here they are both done. I think I like them and they should fill out soon as they are calling for rain for the next 2 weeks.....figures...now I know why people go south in the spring....the wait is horrendous.
Till next time, Frances
Here is the space in my Kitchen where the dishwasher should be. Because this is a house we intend to flip (eventually) I never installed a dishwasher. I keep my garbage can and recycling bins here. It is very ugly and ruins the look of the kitchen.
I went to the hardware store and I picked up this curtain rod for 4 bucks...pretty cheap.
I had previously purchased a canvas drop cloth to use for...something I wasn't quite sure yet what..but I cut a piece 1 1/2 the width of the opening.. I just hung the cloth over the rod for now..till I can get my daughter to sew it for me..I have no talent in that direction sadly.
It turned out pretty awesome I think...at least I dont have to look at the garbage cans any longer..
I was shopping at the Superstore the other day and found these picture frames on sale for 8.94 each.
They are quite large 11X14
I have always wanted to do a gallery wall of pictures of my kids so I thought this would look good at a price that I could afford.
I went to the Zehrs and had a few pictures enlarged to 8X10. They are pretty much my favorite pictures of each of my kids. It was quite cheap...13 dollars for 4 of them not too shabby.
The first one is of my oldest daughter Rox-Anne.. She turned 30 this year.. This picture is from a few years ago when we went out on my friends old wood boat for the day.. Rox-Anne is channeling her inner Jackie O..haha.
This is my oldest son Phil he is 28. This is all of our favorite picture of Phil...He is 14 maybe 15 here. I always wonder what he is thinking here..haha best not to know I suppose.
This picture is my youngest daughter Jaclyn she is 24. This picture is a few years old. My son Phil's girlfriend Krystal took this picture..she is a professional photographer and does an awesome job..I am hoping to eventually get her to take pictures of all my kids and grandkids...She takes our yearly family portrait that I started this blog with. I will get my daughter Rox-Anne to put a link on here to her blog and website...cause I have no clue how to do that...This is a favorite one of Jaclyn.
This one is my baby boy Aidan..He is about 2 maybe 3 here....He is almost 16 now. He picked this picture himself he likes the thumbs up sign...It is a cutie as is he...
Here they all are lined up on the floor as I have to put wire on the frames to hang them. And I was thinking how am I ever gonna get them to all line up...okay good luck with that. I also havn't figured our where I want to hang them ...I will think about that tomorrow as the sun has gone down, I hope they line up even...I can already tell its gonna be fun not!!!!!
I must admit I sure do have a good looking bunch of kids.....Till next time Frances
