A Little Gardening & Old House Charm

 Since it was a Perfect Spring day, I did a little "gardening"...I received these sweet purple pansies for my birthday and decided they would be great in this old birdbath that has seen better days. We have glued it a couple of times!!  I have 3 other birdbaths for the birds to use.

 I am hoping that the bluebird will make a nest in the house I have out for them. They keep checking it out, but I don't think they are nesting in it...  :(

 I know it is a funny angle, but I wanted you to see the cool stairway in the awesome Old House that I was in on Friday! 

 Very cool door knob! I SO WANT THIS!!! It would be a Perfect addition to my collection. However, I don't see that happening.... We didn't work in the basement on Friday. Worked upstairs in closets and window bench seats, finding some treasures that the family will keep.

This photo is taken at the old house. Just beautiful flowering trees. I have no idea on what kind they are. I just had to take a photo!!!

Hubby and I went to 3 estate sales this morning and then worked in the yard...

This weeks schedule, (LOL)  Monday: duty day, Tuesday: give blood and get tea things ready for the church tea party on Saturday, Wednesday: I may meet with a friend, Thursday: fellowship/sharing day at Bible Study Fellowship, Friday: preparing for tea party, set table, help make food, etc...Saturday: Tea Party!

Poor sister was in pain on Wednesday when I visited her...we went to a quilt shop and I picked out fabric for a quilt that she is making me for my 60th birthday. We probably should have stayed at her home.

I hope you all have a enjoyable weekend!!

You are a busy one. The staircase looks like it has little screen door frames on it.
Sorry, your sister wasn't feeling well. I'm sure she enjoyed getting out.
Have a good time this week,

Hugs to your sweet sister. It's fun to get out, though - after being cooped up for awhile. How sweet she is making you a quilt! Your pansies look lovely! Thanks for showing a few pics of the "old house"! I would love to see more! Have a great week busy friend!

That is an amazing staircase. Love it. Hugs to your sister for all she is going through. At least the weather has been better and I think that helps one feel better.

COOL old knob! xo Diana

Linda said...

Your photos are lovely! I also love thrift stores, etc. :)


Love the pretty purple flowers in the birdbath. A perfect spot for them. Hope the birds find the house and move in.

Thinking of your sister. Glad you were able to spend time with her. That door knob and plate are gorgeous. Very creative use of your birth bath. Have a great week.

Hi Deb, prayers for your sister. Glad you got to spend time together. Love flowers in a bird bath. What a beautiful staircase. What a charming old door knob. Hope the bluebirds decide to make a nest.

Love the staircase! It is such an unusual design.

Your bird bath planter is beautiful. Our pansies are about done now. How weather means they wilt and will soon be all gone. But I love their little faces.

Hugs, Jocelyn

Stephanie said...

Thinking of your sweet sister and keeping her in my prayers!

Your flowers in the birdbath look absolutely delightful! What a fun and pretty idea.

Enjoy the week, dear Deb...sounds like you will be busy :) Hugs!

Oh I love how you put the flowers in the bird bath. We have one too but the birds love it. We saw one at an auction and was tempted to buy another but it went a little higher than I wanted to pay for

SueLovesCherries said...

Deb, the bird bath is so pretty and shabby chic! I love the stairs and doorknob, too! For some reason, we don't have many estate sales in my area - unfortunately. Keep up the hunt!

Love the purple flowers in the bird bath! Such a cute spot for them! I just love watching the birds, hopefully the blue birds will nest in that cute house! :) Love old houses, they have so much character! The door knob is fabulous! Such a beautiful picture of the blooming trees, I think the one with white blooms might be an apple tree?? We have several and it looks familiar lol. Glad you got to spend time with your sister, she probably enjoyed it and getting out too, so nice of her to make a quilt for you!! :) Have a great week, sounds busy but exciting! xo Holly

I love the birdbath planter...great idea! That house looks like it has some wonderful architectural features.
Keeping your sister in my prayers...xoxo

sounds like you have a busy week going on. A church tea party sounds like a great time. I think that its as much fun to get ready for parties like that as it is to attend them.
love the bird bath with the pansys in it. I used to have an old cement one when we first moved here.. but it broke and I dont know what ever happen to it. would love to have it now. have a great weekend Deb and a happy mothers day! Im so looking forward to the weekend after being on call this week! crazy world we live in... seriously!
have a great day my friend.
