DIY Blog Hop!
I’m bringing you Sundays on Silverado a day early this week, because tomorrow is our montly DIY Blog Hop. I hope you’ll stop back by tomorrow to see how I made two Farmhouse Signs from Thrift Store Finds, plus you will be treated to several other DIY thrift store makeovers from my talented blogger friends!
The weather is finally becoming steadily more warm, offering some much needed opportunities to spend time outdoors, enjoying happy hour at home, cooking dinner on the grill/smoker, and enjoying some lovely Iowa sunsets over the pasture. These are the months I crave all winter long….
Getting the Garden Ready
We added 14 bags of compost and garden soil to our Deer-Proof, Raised-Red Garden this week. Fortunately, my husband has THIS handy garden cart that attaches to his mower, making it super easy to haul all that heavy stuff out back.
It’s almost time to get planting. I’m having a hard time holding myself back, but Mother’s Day in Iowa is usually our rule of thumb for putting out cold sensitive plants. We shall see if I can wait that long… 😂 🍅🥕🥒
I popped into a couple of thrift stores and a garage sale, since I had two blog hops centered around thrift-store finds scheduled, and fortunately came away with some great finds.
The two Rosenthal~Sanssouci Ivory Square Embossed Serving Bowls I got for $1.50 each. They are going for considerably higher for that online.
I got the three milk glass bud vases and the square milk glass candy dish for 10 cents each at a garage sale! I mean, that’s almost free….😛
A New Ride
My husband traded his older Jeep in for a 2021 version. There was a little mishap on the day he brought it home. 😱 Par for the course in this 2020/21 year we’ve endured I guess. Oh well, the dealership made it right, and all’s well that end’s well, right?
