Bring it on.....

Spring is coming. Spring is coming. It was actually sunny and nice this past weekend. Take a peek at what the SUN inspired me to do. Thanks to Lowes, and the way they perfectly arrange all the goodies for us impulse buyers. lol


We planted a total of 8 tulips, 4 on each side of our driveway. What a difference a tiny POP of color can do to really make your house look wonderful!

I could not resist this little guy. $14.95 at Lowes, isn't he adorable. I think so! I just hope he doesn't get stolen.


We found this cute planter at Home Goods. It was originally a faded worn white color. The BF spray painted it to match the house and he also picked out the pretty plants. We placed this in the front yard right behind our bench which is directly in front of our front window.

Oh BTW, yes we landscaped that front area ourselves. The BF took out a ton of bushes and we laid the black mesh down and the ground cover. Purchased the stones and the fence, he even built the bench. That was the first project we did last year when we moved in. Hey it's all about the curb appeal and ALL the houses one our court have it! Just keeping up with the JONES'S, I guess.





My cute frogs, I purchased these little guys from ABC Distributors. The stand we found at home goods for $9.99.

I might kick myself for saying this, because summer usually consists of 104 degree plus weather for weeks on end, BRING ON THE SUN!

What a great job, Lisa! Your yard looks amazing! I am drooling and so jealous over here because we just got another 4-6 inches of snow yesterday on top of the 14" we had gotten near the end of last week. I am DYING for some nice warm weather and sunshine as well. UGH! Thanks for sharing! Have a great day! Big hugs! :o)
