My Garden

Brocolli, Kale, Peppers, Squash
Zuchinni and squash

Yellow crock neck squash, green onions, carrots, lettuce, cantelope, watermelon


Tomato plants

Grape vine

Huckleberry bush

Tangelo Tree

Palmagranet tree

My garden is growing so much and it's producing lots. I love gardening so much and feel very thankful that I've got room to do it. It feels so good to harvest and the next minute put it in your dinner to eat.

Our grape vine, huckleberry bush, tangelo tree and pomegranet tree are doing amazing!

I love living in Arizona for the things I can grow and when!

House Decorating

Our bedroom headboard I painted antique white from goodwill. April did the vinyl lettering.
Craigslist loveseat. Needed more burgandy and red in the room the Feng Shui lady told me since it's the relationship room.

Our tree of life picture in the family room.


My garden from the dirty window. Still planting we are going to have a farm.

Couches from craigslist, computer chair a yard sale.


Buen Provecho means enjoy your meal and many blessings in South America. Notice the bright blue is gone, I painted the kitchen last week with a friend.


Laundry room.

Pantry

Pantry and upright freezer John and Joelynn gave us.


My Laundry room, wanted to save money and painted a boarder on and April did the vinyl lettering. This is the room I come into every day from the carport so I wanted it to be cute, it was all white and very ugly. Now it's beautiful and patriotic!


Boys Ocean bathroom, I bought the picture at goodwill and had no idea if it would fit. Lucky me!

Painted the cabinet, and Dustin gave me new hardware.


Dresser goodwill find. Cameran's Ecuador wood piece.




Guest bedroom/Sewing room with Starla's lovely quilt, my Bolivian rug as a headboard, I was so excited that was the Feng Shui's idea and I've never been able to display it.


Play room with vintage airplane boarder, I'm going to hang airplanes from the ceiling.
Can you tell I'm having fun decorating!!

In Livingroom.



Living room, blue chair, yard sale, victorian seat craigslist.




Dinning table, criagslist and wall mirror (45lbs) cost only $12, I'm serious, craigslist is awesome.


Much advice has come from my feng shui consultant, if you have any questions ask. All furniture was bought at yard sales, craigslist and goodwill's 50% off sales.

House Warming Party

We had about 30 people at our party on Feb 6th, 2010. It was a lot of fun. We had banana splits and taught everyone about Feng Shui and cloth diapers.

We have done so much to the house to decorate so I'll post some pictures.

Gardening Time

Yesterday Joseph and I planted the garden. I'm also going to paint the kitchen again a pretty sage green color. It will look good with the white cabinets and countertops, black appliances and wood floor. A girlfriend is coming over to help me thank goodness.

We planted cabbage, spinach, zuchinni, radishes, peas, lettuce, carrots, bell peppers, green onions, watermelon, cantelope, yellow crockneck squash, squash, snap peas and brocolli. We are very excited and the horse manure that we laid down before the rain storms should really help.
