garden plans

Definitely more than ready for this weather to warm up so we can get this garden started. Drew and I have been dreaming up garden plans for a while now.

Last year we didn't do a vegetable garden - we just stuck to maintaining the flower beds. So this year we're going all out - well not completely all out like we did 2 years ago when we attempted to do (almost) every vegetable under the sun.

The plan for the vegetable garden this year is to do tomatoes, peas, lettuce, corn, and asparagus. And for the flower beds we've already picked up some climbing roses and some peonies all in shades of pink.

pillow projects

Made a few pillows over the weekend.

This one was a no-sew project made using my fold and tuck method as seen here.

And these ginormous pillows were made at Drew's request (he's been wanting a large pillow that you can sit on the floor with). I got this awesome old fabric, enough for two large pillows for only $5. This makes me super happy.

I can hear the birds outside this morning. Must be spring headed our way soon. I can't wait!

Happy Wednesday.
Linking here today.

happy birthday drewb

Needless to say, it's a very special day! Drew's birthday is shared with the finale of The Bachelor tonight. And it could not be more appropriate as Drew secretly loves this show - at least this season. This is pretty funny if you know Drew (not your typical Bachelor fan).

Will you accept this rose?

Happy Birthday, DrewB!

I want to paint something mint green.

I can feel the weekend coming and I'm up for a project.

some spring

Getting excited to do some gardening this year.

It's still really early, but I'm really looking forward to it as soon as the weather warms up.

Picked up a begonia plant and hoping that spring will be here soon.

quick frame fill

And here's what we've done with that great frame we picked up recently. 

Just tacked an old seed sack to the frame.

Happy with a quick and easy makeover!

white console

I've done it. I've finally painted the TV console in the living room.

Still considering glass knobs to replace these.

This is the usual view with the door open.

See some before pictures of the console here.

frame to fill

Picked up this awesome frame a couple of weekends back. $8! I think I've figured out what to do with it (at least temporarily and I will be showing you that soon.)

I initially thought it would go on this wall replacing our stairway picture display. So Drew and I went ahead and took down all the pictures and filled the holes. But, plans have changed, as they usually do when we get working on a project.

Now I've placed it on another wall entirely and this wall is a blank canvas. I do love a blank canvas and as soon as I get a moment I'll be working on filling it.

PS - No, I did not paint it and I will not be painting it. I think.
