A Summer's View

 

 
I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet. I'm clinging to the Warmth and Beauty of Summer, so I thought I would share with you some of my favorite Spring and Summer Photos, from this summer and summers past.
 
 

Welcome to my Flower Gardens, all the flowers are from my yard and I love each and every one!

This is a very Photo heavy Post, so enjoy the view, and I won't bore you with the details!






























 








Thanks for visiting, Hope you enjoyed my Summer View

Creating with Vintage Books


I'm BACK! At least I think I am...
Just sort of "testing" the waters to see if I even remember how to do this!
I can't believe I haven't post in almost a year...


I so enjoyed all this, Life just got in the way, you know how that is...
But, I so missed this and decided it was time to make time and get back to the things I enjoy, the things that make me, well me!


I've been slowly getting back to Creating, and these books are a perfect creative outlet for me, I love getting out the paint, stencils and ink, dreaming up new designs...


I've even been selling them in my Etsy Store! Actually selling, not just listing! This has been a real boost for my deflated sense of worth as an, (dare I say it out loud) Artist, me an artist?

The dictionary Definition of Artist:
1. a person who produces works in any of the arts that are primarily subject to aesthetic criteria.
2. a person who practices one of the fine arts, especially a painter or sculptor.
 
Well, I'm no painter or sculptor...But I am Creative, I really am... This is who I am, what makes me Happy! I love to create!

So yes, from this day forward I'm going to think of myself as an Artist! (sort of)




So, I'm back! I've missed sharing, I've missed visiting with all of Blogland, and I have a lot of catching up to do. So if you've stumbled upon my little post, leave me a message, so I can come visit, and catch up on all the things I've missed from all my Favorite Artists, and hopefully make some new Blogging Friends!

Thank you so much for Visiting!

Potting Bench - A work in Progress




This is the Potting Table I put together last summer. I'm calling this my "Before", since I was never really satisfied with it. I spent last summer putting it together and tweaking it, but it's still not the way I want it. Which is why I didn't post it last year.


All the items were salvaged pieces, things I've had or "acquired" So it was completely FREE! Not bad for the price...


A Vintage Shelving Unit, sits on top of an old Farm Table, backed with an old Wooden Garage Door.


I added a stenciled Branch, with Birds, some buckets, and wire basket hold tools and Rusty Treasures


I attached another old shelf to the side of the house, a rusty mailbox holds larger Garden Tools



Below an old Umbrella Stand holds some rakes and a hoe, an old Quaker State Oil Drum holds my Bird Seed







Below you can see I tried using an old shutter, door, and Door frame... These are to hide my "workspace" behind. These are the main things I want to change.


It's a little Junky-er than I would like, but it really did serve it's purpose and saw a lot of use!







I can't wait to get started on the changes I have in mind!




Let me know if you have any questions...
