Have you ever seen a bear in his underwear?

How about a deer drinking wine? I couldn't resist getting this wine holder for my hubby for "Fathers Day." Isn't it a hoot? "Happy Fathers Day" to all the fathers out there!

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Peonies, one of my favorite flowers, and I have a lot.

The garden is doing very well so far, but it is going to get much hotter.

I just love how the peonies did so well this year, and the hostas'
are huge and its only June!

Nothing like growing your own herbs too, like rosemary and parsley.
Don"t you agree?

New Cushions For The Patio Furniture

I found this great outdoor fabric on sale, It was buy one meter and get two free. So I decided to make new cushions for my patio chairs. I re-used the piping from around the old cushion and just covered it with the new fabric.

They had a kit at the fabric store to make covered buttons. (So easy) and it takes very little fabric.

I have a set of 6 chairs and so far, I have 3 seat cushions and 1 back cushion finished.

Hopefully they will all be done soon!

The chairs did not originally have back cushions, but I think it will be more comfortable.
