Today I’m sharing a post I did last Spring highlighting my daughter and son-in-law’s pretty yard!
I thought it deserved a re-run in case you missed it!
Shelli and her husband live just one mile from me which makes it really nice!
I get to see my two grandsons often and we go out for evenings with them frequently to movies, dinner, or the theater.
It’s nice when your kids get older and you can be friends with them and do social things together!
Just hang in there…it will happen!
They have a beautiful southern style home
I’ve been helping her work on improving her garden for the last few years.
Some things were in place when they bought it, but they are adding more.
This very large front flowerbed is packed with daffodils every Spring.
We found out that some of the neighborhood folks have called it the
I did get one very pretty pic of her hydrangea and gardenia bushes all mixed together.
Shelli doesn’t blog but she looks at blogs and LOVES Pinterest.
This year she’s gone crazy over spray paint.
If it doesn’t move…it gets painted!
Right by the driveway is this sign…..
She has one of these metal family signs, you may have seen them, or have one!
Shelli painted each person to match her family…
even the terrier was featured!
Originally they were all plain brown.
Did I tell you Shelli LOVES customized things?
One of her favorite colors is turquoise.
She has a great sense of design and uses color very well.
I’m not sure I would have thought to do this color combination….
It looks fantastic!
She put a flat Rubbermaid lazy susan in the saucer so she could
rotate the planter easily to catch the sun!
That’s a great idea for you!
Her husband was born and raised in Nawlins (Yankee translation: New Orleans)
so she put a fleur-de-lis on one side…
She painted the metal decorative bike by the birdhouse….recognize that?
It’s the same one I have….her Daddy built one for her and her sister too!
Isn’t that so cute?
She painted the fence buckets….
One of the cutest things she did was make these
topsy turvy pot towers…..
I haven’t looked at the Pinterest pictures of these but Shelli says that her
twist is using the whiskey barrels for the base.
I really like the rustic touch don’t you?
She also saved money by spray painting some of those
inexpensive black nursery pots instead of buying pots!
If you try this idea, Shelli said that she used a brick in a couple of the pots
to keep them tilted at the right angle.
As I left, I spotted one of the places she had been spray painting…..
It looks pretty too!
A little work of art!
Hope you enjoyed the mini-tour!
