piddle fartin' around...

before...

and the afters...

we got an air mattress for the deck back in January...
so got it aired up and covered before anyone could stick a claw in it...

and I dug out some old linens to use out here, all cutters...

we spend a lot of time out here...

and we have so much seating up here now...
just in case someone drops by...

my bunny is still up here, too...
I painted him a medium gray with my craft paint and water...

need to find the extra pillows around here and get them out there...

and we worked on this yesterday...
just some touch ups here and there...

and this is another project...
hope it works...
got some more to do on it...

and these are first year tulips...

in front of the deck and they are all purple...
I love them!
will be working on a flower bed here this spring...
we planted carrots and radish behind the tulips on Monday...

will be piddle fartin' around today, too...
got to move the bike back...
dump the carts and turn them over...
last minute pick ups...
and Craig is going to brave the spiders and pull out a couple of tubs from under the deck...
they contain the bling for the gardens...
I am going to try to dig in the dirt today, if its dry enough...

we got rain moving in later tonight...
up to 2 inches, they say...
hope it misses us...
but I doubt if it does...

you all have a good day and play at something for at least a little bit...
I need to get moving here...
got some birds to watch!
;)

I love that you can nap on the deck-it's perfect and I'd do it all the time.
Love the bike with it's basket too
Have a good day my friend

I would spend all my days out there! I would love to take a nap..hey I don't do naps but that might make me start!

Hi Tete, I love the porch and it looks so inviting. I would probably take naps and I find myself doing that every so often anymore. I love your tulips. I am watching the big snowflakes falling out my window. It is melting right at the moment, but we are close to freezing with the wind chill. I enjoyed your post today. Have a great day and enjoy the fresh air if you have sunshine. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Hi Tete,
Your porch looks fabulous!! I want a little place on my porch for napping, dreaming of those summer nights already:-)
Enjoy:-)
Hugs,
Bella

What a pretty porch, Tete! I love your vintage linens, and I'm drooling over your wire bird cage. Love your bunny, too!

I love the color of those tulips! Most of ours are yellow.
