hello Saturday


Hello Saturday. I've had my second cup of coffee so I'm ready to get this day going?

I started thinning out the summer weeds garden yesterday so I think I'll continue on with that momentum and tackle another little section today.

I am undecided on whether or not I will try my hand at a fall garden.  While I love the thought of pulling up a few radishes and carrots and maybe trying a new variety of lettuce, my summer garden was such a dismal failure that I am afraid to risk the rejection a puny fall/winter garden might bring.  Can my delicate wannabe gardener's heart take that?

In other (not) exciting news, I pulled all the photos down from our gallery wall of family pictures, gave the frames a good cleaning and switched out a few pictures, so today I hope to paint the wall they hang on and freshen up the arrangement.  I love seeing my family every time I walk by.  Do you have a family photo wall?

Yesterday I stained a few slats of wood for a small project I have in mind, so that's on my to do list as well.  If it turns out like envision, I can't wait to show you the results.  If it doesn't, you won't ever hear me mention it again.  Ha, how's that for truth?

Other than that, it should be a pretty quiet day around here.  What are your weekend plans?

xo, Patty


  1. I do have a family wall and love changing it up, too. I think it's time again. Deb

  2. I have a family photo wall going up to my attic. I keep it the same and it is of the kids as babies and young people. :) Kit

  3. We finished painting our living room and stairway and I was thinking about putting a family wall going up. I just have to find the right color of frames I want to use, or find the frames and paint them?? Our garden was slow to start this year and we are just now starting to get a few tomatoes. Have a fun weekend!

  4. Our weekend plans involved a family reunion today and a big dinner party at our place Sunday. A full weekend spent with family and friends. I have a family photo wall of sorts. Arranging art on the walls is not a gift of mine and I tend to toss it together willy nilly and lickety split and then be unhappy with the arrangement. It's something I have to work on in the near future. Maybe I can get some ideas from yours so please do share when it's done!

  5. My garden could benefit from some weeding. Funny how weeds seem to have such a strong will to live!

    Your new kitchen look, by the way, is lovely. It looks like a such a pleasant place to spend some time, Patty.
