Plant Stands Are Not Just For Plants

Plant stands are not just for plants

well at least in my house as you know how I love to re-purpose things.

I thought I would put together this short post to show you how I use my plant stands.

A Creative Ironstone Centerpiece and Planter

Hope you all  had a wonderful week.

It has been a hectic one for me of activities and traveling.

However, how can I complain about that!!???

While traveling with my hubby, I was able to meet up with two of my great friends

who also happen to be bloggers: Mary Alice (Chateau Chic) and Yvonne (StoneGable).

AND I finally met the uber talented Loi (Tone on Tone). He was so much fun to be with

and I look forward to “Adventures with Loi”

My hubby and I  traveled back home late into the night

to make our granddaughter’s school program the next morning.

So well worth the lack of sleep!

Upper Porch for Spring 2014

The moment the temps reached the 70’s . .

The upper porch was truly sad with the lack of flowers.
