Deal Of The Week

After the garden walk last weekend I'm all excited about making my few flowers more interesting.  I'm on the lookout for several unusual things. This spring I bought a new umbrella for our table. We have green furniture and had a floral one that fit in quite nicely. I found solid umbrellas on sale and the only color I thought would 'go' would be the burgundy, it gives the deck and nice pop of color (at least that is what I think Stacey and Clinton would say). I painted the star, that's on the garage, and a couple of flower pots and I was lucky enough to find a couple in that color also, so I'm good now. I don't want everything the same color.

This week I found this decorative 3D plate....looks hand made....it's signed with a name and Puerto Rico on the back. 

I paid $1. It is interesting and will look great somewhere in my garden....but where???

Monday was a lovely day....hot, clear skies, cooler in the evening. I had lunch with friends then spent time at the beach with one of them. I am soooooooooo looking forward to next summer when I can do things like that and not have to think about working the next day or if I am working when a friend is in town.


  1. Love the plate...that color is gorgeous! I have been working on adding color to my yard as well. Good luck on your projects!

  2. You might want to spray some type of finish on so the plate doesn't fade in the sun and weather. Love your star too!
