New Minis and some pics of the yard

I have a four day weekend and it has been fabulous so far!  Yesterday I even took a nap!  I'm behind on reading blogs, but I thought I would pop in and do a quick post.  First, I have to share with you the wonderful minis i recieved from Doreen at http://doreensminiatures.blogspot.com  when she had a give away on her blog .  I know Doreen made a lot of these items- they are all so wonderful and I have a plan for each piece- thank you so much Doreen!!  Items from friends makes my dollhouse so much more special.  I love the little dolly so much- and the vanity tray is so tiny- it's just perfect!  I'm going to use the little yellow flowers in my rooftop patio- they are also so tiny and perfect!  The rug will go in my next dollhouse project, as well as the little toys and sweet little cotton candy :)


Thank you again Doreen- I love it all!

I have been spending some time outside in the yard on my time off. We washed the deck and put the roof on the gazebo. I can't afford new cushions for my deck chairs this year, so I sewed some covers from fabric I had in my stash and we sprayed them with scotchgard. They should be ok because with the roof on the gazebo they won't get too wet- and I really only NEED them to last this one year. Tomorrow I'll be washing and re-staining the wooden chairs with a new coat of green and then we'll be having my hubby's Mom over for a barbecue. Here are some pictures of the little garden in the backyard that I weeded today and the view looking to the right and the left while in my backyard. The flower garden I am always talking about is in the front yard. Hope you are having a good weekend- I hope to be back tomorrow or monday with a video of the front flower garden if I can figure out how I got it to post last time. I even talk in this one :)

I loooooove that backyard!!! I have always loved trees and to sit on a swing in the shade of many trees and listen to the birds sing is a dream. It is also very quiet and private. Your chairs turned out very well - I really like them. You have the best of both worlds - shade and tranquillity in the back yard and sunshine and flowers in the front.

What perfect covers you made for your chairs, I love the pattern! The back area looks so interesting, great swing and all that green. Lovely minis from Doreen.
Really looking forward to your video. It has been cool with rain for a couple of weeks here, not fun for gardening.
