Modes of Transportation...



As promised...
My "Modes of Transportation" 
Christmas decor ~
outside by my front door...



Cute bicycle...
sitting on a "patch of snow"...

(It's really the plastic sheet
that I spray painted the bike on.
I didn't want the bike to get dirty.)

My Grandson's Tonka truck...

Floral arrangement on handlebars...
made from a milk carton base...

Floral arrangement in my 5 gallon crock...
just to add some interest...

Ice skates...

My old cross country skis...

And a big candle to light it all up at night...

I will be looking for a small sled to add in the future...
I like this little grouping...

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Another fun project...


Found on the side of the road for free... 



After I used a can of spray paint on it...


And added some embellishments to it...



I am adding this to my "modes of transportation" Christmas display outside by my front door.  Pictures to come when completed...  
Stay turned...

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

Charmin' Chatty...

Hi...
Remember me?  I was found at a neighbor's yard sale and went home with this sweet lady,  who gave me a bath and fixed me up.  Here I am when she found me!  But it's OK... because I received a LOT of love from my previous owner.



Below is a closeup of my hair...


Here I am today!  
She fixed my hair 
and gave me some brand new clothes!


Below is a picture that shows 
what I looked 
like when I was new from the store...

I am so happy with my new owner...  she gets me...
and I love the "new"  me!

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Halloween fun...


My little neighbor boys 
and my great grandson (on the right) 
getting ready to start "going out" for Halloween...
So cute!


Devil Dog... don't let the hound out!


Harry...

The Gathering...

The walkway over to Harry...

Enter if you dare...

Ahoy!  Maties!

Officially the largest costume!

So,  this is the best neighborhood around and kids and parents came in droves!  Our street looked like something out of "The Walking Dead"!  haha  So much fun and the kids had a blast!  I'm so glad that we are able to do this for them! 
We got so many compliments on our "decor" 
and "thanks" from the parents for making it so much fun! 
We will do it again next year, 
God willing!

'Til next time, 
Love ya,  Jean

My Fall garden...


Warning:  Picture Heavy...
(Click pics to enlarge)

It is so pretty out there...
Pictures do not do it justice...

The maroon flowers are Autumn Joy Sedum...
The white ones are Sweet Everlasting...



Marigolds...







Coleus...

Overall view of the center garden...

My grandson's Tonka truck...


Another interesting coleus
that I grew from seed...

I just got the weeds out of here
and I added bark mulch to this area...

My little pond viewed from the street...



Next,  
I will be getting ready for Halloween...  
Stay Tuned...

'Til next time,  
Love ya,  Jean
