Our Little Bitty Vegetable Garden

Hello everyone!

Our little garden is proof that you don't have to have a lot of property to grow vegetables.  This year, we planted only a few things.  Tomatoes, squash and peppers.  We quit growing cucumbers because we got so many and I was the only one that ate them.  We also cut back on our peppers because so many of them just ended up in the freezer and some are STILL there a year later!  

My husband went to the nursery to gather the materials we would need.

While he was prepping the soil, he soaked the plants in water.

Here is a lovely "before" picture of our garden after a long winter.

Then, the work began tilling up the soil.

Looking a little better.

He added all of the other "ingredients" to make the soil rich and made mounds in which to plant the vegetables so they'll have room to spread their roots.  (I always tease him about those rows.)

Now, let the planting begin!

 All done.

He added a few cages to some of the plants that will grow tall or trail.  

And THAT is our little bitty vegetable garden!  We're a small family of 4 so this will be just a nice addition to our evening meals.  

Do you plant a vegetable garden at your house?  

Thanks for stopping by!

Crisp White Slipcover

Hello everyone!

I've had a wing chair in my sitting room for years.  I found it for sale by a neighbor at a garage sale.  It was a cream color and always had a few water mark stains on it that wouldn't come off, so I finally decided to buy a slipcover for it.  I don't know why I waited so long to do it now!  (Gosh, I've been saying that a lot lately.)  Anyway, I thought I'd share it with you in case you've been looking for a good brand slipcover for your furniture too.  I'm very happy with it!

Final Reveal of Family Room Changes

Hello everyone!

Well, it's been weeks that I've been tweaking the family room.  It took a while to decide which direction I wanted to take it in.  I played around with red and white, blue and white, red and blue etc.  But, everything I did  just fell short of what I was looking for.  Until now.  I wanted something cozy and comfortable.  I wanted something soft and imperfect.  Yet, I wanted something stylish too.  So, I decided to bring in soft denim blues and some indigo to my sofa and chairs.  I moved some furniture around to give me the cozy seating group I was after that also made more sense for how we use the room.  I changed the lighting around as well.  And this is what I came up with.

Antique Shopping (Part 2)

Hello everyone!

It has been raining here almost all week and I am SO ready for it to stop.  The ground is saturated so we can't work on our vegetable garden like we had planned to.  So, what's a girl to do with all of this rain?  Go shopping!  Here are a few more fun finds that I saw at an antique store and thought I would share them with you.

I forgot what these metal buckets are called but I know they are a country french accent for the fireplace.

Share Your Style Party #9

Hello everyone!

Looks like I was able to use a different computer in the house that would allow me to upload tonight's party afterall.  Yay!  So sorry for all of the confusion if you came over to my site to link up earlier.

Are you ready to "share your style" this week?  Sherry from No Minimalist Here is your host this week.

Welcome to the  Share Your Style  party! 

Hi everyone!  I am Sherry and I write the blog  No Minimalist Here.   It's so exciting to be hosting this week and I truly appreciate you visiting.

My husband and I bought a house nine months ago and I have been busy trying to make it our home.  Our most recent project was removing a wall and adding new wood floors.  Decorating the new dining room is what we are working on now.   I hope you will drop by and see our progress so far.


Features from last weeks party.
It's always hard to choose just a few features each week because ya'll are such a talented bunch.  I hope you enjoy my selections from last week.

Rita at May Days shared her beautiful blue and white Spring tablescape.  Did you notice the creative use of fence pickets?

Liz and her husband built this wonderful pergola and landscaped their yard beautifully.  Visit Home To Cottage to see more.

I love Beignets and whenever we visit New Orleans Café de Monde is my first stop for these little pastries.  The Painted Apron shared this fabulous recipe at last week's party.

I admit I have potting shed envy every time I visit Mary at Home Is Where The Boat Is.   How beautiful is this Spring vignette?

If you were featured this week please grab our Feature Button.
I look forward to seeing what you share this week and I hope you will visit me at my blog No Minimalist Here , Instagram  and  Pinterest.
