The "Everything Goes" Country Garden Tour

Are you missing green like I am?
Today is a long overdue share of a local country garden I visited in 2013.  I have been saving these photos for a winter tour and am so pleased to present them for you to enjoy.  This garden was part of the 2013 Southern Indiana Master Gardener's Tour.  They should be having a 2015 tour this summer as well.  You can see more of this tour on my site under the "Garden Gawkers Series" tab.
This post will be listed as #16, so go visit the others when you have a chance!
 Welcome to the garden of Mike and Kay Haller.
I am going to let you wander around.... 
and then we will chat about it when you get to the end of this post!  
Have Fun!!

Yes, My Trees Are Still Up.... Warm Winter Lighting

I know... the holidays are over and you worked so hard to get it all put away.
But it is so cold and yuck outside.  It just makes you feel cold...
Blah... and plain tired.
So lets warm up with some accent lighting.
 I am the queen of lights with no purpose but to be pretty.
My husband calls it my fuu-fuu sh#t.
But I love it... and somehow need it in Winter months.

Keeping the Home Fires Burning...



 Welcome back and come on in....
it is soooo cold here in Indiana!
I have been keeping the home fires burning... 
aka... our fireplace when I get home of the evenings.
Enjoying the soft, sweet glow in the cold winter nights.

A Sweet Sunday at Home....

Oh it feels good to be home today...
Hubby and I worked all week.
Running here and there even with the bitter cold conditions.
Finally a day at home....
Sundays are treasured at our house.

Sweet New Finds in the New Year....

Christmas is over and winter is upon us in full swing.
With that many of my decorations have been put away.
But I could not take down my sweet highchair tree just yet.
I added some pinks and reds with a new vintage photo.
 So sweet with the baby shoes.

Vintage Wedding Themed Table Vignette

 I'm back!  Two posts in a row!!  Whoo-hoo!!!

After going back to work full time and the holidays---
I am finally starting to feel like blogging again.
I miss you guys so much!
But keeping up with the house, family and life...
I have quite a bit of my Christmas put away and am slowly
redecorating my main areas.

Some of it I will leave up till Spring.
The house always looks so bleak in Winter!
 Recently I found these wonderful vintage wedding photos.
I ADORE old photos and use them in my vignettes.
But these are just wonderful, I think I have a new collection brewing.

Florida Wildlife Tour --- BEWARE OF GATORS!

Happy New Year and welcome back!
This is my second post about our trip to Florida over the holidays.
