My new Star Hook and other outdoor things..

Well, here it is. My new Star Holder. I just love it, of coarse I love stars!! We went to Lowes last night to get a hanging geranium but they looked terrible. So we got the purple petunia instead. I think it looks just as lovely. We have only last fall and this spring started doing our landscaping, so mind you it is a work in progress. But while taking this picture it inspired me to take some outdoor pictures of our flowerbeds and where we like to hang out, when it is cool enough too.My little sheep my DH got me, another thing I love is Sheep!
I got this star birdhouse on my trip to Md. Isn't it cute? It's for rent right now, if you know any peeps in the area. LOL.

The plow.

The star bird bath... Love it!!

This is one of my Favorite places to hang out. Whether I am out there reading, listening to the birds, having conversation with my DH, or on the laptop. I LOVE this part of my home!!

On a really nice night we can be found here eating our dinner.

This is where my DH would rather sit, in his rockers on the front porch.
I like it here too... but, I like that the back porch is screened in. I don't like BUGS!!

Well that is all for today. We picked beans last night, so I better get to working on them, so I can get them canned. Ihope everyone is having a blessed day!!

Hi Sonya,
Thank you! I try to make as many of the items in my gatherings myself. Yes I do make my own cookies and biscuits for the gatherings. Those are so much fun to make. The sled is one of my favorites too! Have a beautiful day! Hugs, Loretta

Hi SonyaDawn,

I love your star plant hanger! Those little touches add so much to landscaping...I love everything you showed us! Your home looks very inviting. I would be slowing down as I passed by your house!

You and your hubby are a great team!

I'm like you too...I prefer our back porch. There are too many bugs on the front! We have those pesty mosquitoes swarming by this time of year!

Have a great day!
