Le Jardin!!

Good morning, Friends! Happy Saturday morning to you all! Happy  Cinco de Mayo!!
I've been working on a few projects to share with you. I hope to have them ready to post up here tomorrow or on Monday. I’m having a blast making them, too!!! But, it is time consuming.  But who cares, I do get to share them with you and reap the rewards of my labor!!!

If you have been following Shoestring Elegance you may remember last week when I shared a picture with you all of my first Peach rose of the season.

Well, you guys are just not going to believe what has happened in one week. My entire rose Garden has come to life right in front of my eyes!! I just had to take a minute to share it with you all!

This is an image of my garden yesterday morning and the rose in the front was the one featured...I can't even count all the roses now...Life is so sweet and God is so Good!!!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend,  and getting a chance to enjoy your garden!!!
Okay, a quick technical note, because you asked.
If you are trying to post a comment here and have been unsuccessful, this may be the reason why:  you, of course, click in the comment box and write what you like! Here’s the tricky part under that box you will see a little pull down box it reads Comment as: ….In the box it says Google, AIM, Wordpress, etc.. suggesting the type of account you are viewing it from, CLICK on the one that you have account with, if for some reason yours is not represented there you can always choose anonymous…You can tell me who you are, if you like..Once that is done you need to click on the PREVIEW box, if everything appears as you like it then click PUBLISH!!
That’s all there is to it, really!!! I look forward to reading your comments and finding out what you are doing this weekend.  I will post my NO COST project for you all to see tomorrow!!    Enjoy!! 

One More for the road!

I'll be sharing this with:


  1. I absolutely love this beautiful rose pictured in front of the old peeling wood home. Very good contrast. Just like the nme of the site. Love, ya, Di

    1. Thank you so much, Di!! Love you, too! Who knew that bad paint job on this house would be so perfectly Shabby Chic?! LOL

  2. Oh my gosh, it sure has grown! It looks beautiful, beyond beautiful. I guess it really is time to enjoy the spring/summer!!!

  3. Beautiful! We have a peach climbing rose which we pruned back heavily this spring. I can't wait for the first blooms.

    The rose at the end looks just like a rose I have in the bed by my driveway. It's one of my favorites.

    1. Thanks, Barb, I'm glad you liked the post and Pics!! I know how you feel about the waiting, I pruned all my roses back to about 12 inches, but they have come back so much heartier and even more fragrant than they were before, it was totally worth the wait! I can't be out there enough!!
