garden inspiration

after about a month-long hiatus,
i have returned to the blogworld...

don't think i wasn't inspired during these last few weeks,
or that i wasn't creative. there were moments.
i've had some time to dream, think & be encouraged.

june is going to be full of new ideas & creations.
i am determined & motivated.

though i could not garden today, i am posting some 
items that inspire me to till soil, plant, paint & decorate.


these could be full of some cute little flowers
used as a centerpiece for an outdoor garden party 

and, once i have that outdoor garden party, i thought it might 
be nice to dress accordingly

and, either blouse, with these

and, this necklace handmade by 
my lovely and talented friend, lindsay coleman

check out her etsy shop

i know. doesn't this outfit make you want to 
throw a garden party every single day? 
or at least sit outside, 
while drinking iced tea & reading a good book?

you could sit at my table with the floral centerpiece,
[both listed above]
wearing the listed outfit, & on these chairs

summer tea anyone?

so, aside from my future garden party wearing 
my dream garden party outfit,
i might also be productive....

i've recently [with the strong help of my husband] 
started phase 2 of cultivating disregard[en]'s garden.

i will show you a before photo to create some anticipation,
and, prove to you why there is even a need for cultivation....

i know. you need to see it in person. it is even worse.
the wood blocks that create the 'flower box' area are rotten, 
the grass & weeds closest to the wall should be soil, 
and that wall of cinder blocks should be covered with jasmine.

it actually looks a bit better, now. 
after a few hours of using that axe & some shovels.
i will post some photos once we get flowers in the flowerbed...

i am reminded of my future garden party & motivated to work hard.

and, just to be even more encouraged to use my muscles 
& till the soil

shoes to complete my outfit

ahh, 'tis life. in my garden.
 [then i sip my iced tea]

more to come:
- phase two photos
- some furniture i have been working on
- future ideas
- my new website!
- photos of recent events i attended & decorated
