How's your garden?

Good morning!

I hope you woke up in a good mood and enjoying your day!

Arizona has been a bit chilly this week.

We have a small container garden on our patio.

This is our first one and it is doing well I think.

By well nothing has dies yet and is growing. LOL


The top has yellow and red bell peppers.
Then next is some spinach. That drop needs a bigger pot once it gets a little bit bigger.
There is also some Cilantro...yummmy!

Those 2 large ones are Black Cherry Tomatos.

There is alot and we are waiting for them to turn red so we can eat them.

One thing that I love about living in Arizona is you can grow year round.

And when it gets chilly we just bring them into the dinning room LOL

Do you garden?

Pillow Tucks

One of my most favorite things I love to have in my home is 
pillow tucks.
NOW...I have been asked what is a pillow tuck.

This is NOT the official definition, if there is one, but the way I explain it is
a small pillow on a shelf tucked in by something else.

Whew..did that make sense?

I Love hand stitched ones. They are probably my favorite to make.

Rejoice In The Lord Redwork Stitchery Pillow

Printed ones are also great.


Sparrow Bird Pillow

This one is a One Of A Kind. Great tribute to our armed forces.

Holding Out For Snow?

I have noticed around blogland that some of you r are holding out for a huge snow storm?
Or a blizzard as some have called it.

Where I am we don't get blizzards, we don't even get snow.

It has warmed up a little.
Our days have been in the low 70's.

Which sounds wonderful except soon the A/C will be on full blast in a few months
and summer is NOT my favorite time of year here.

120 degrees...not my friend!

So I am going to share some "cool" 
pics from my past of Northern Arizona.
Where it does get snow.


This is one of my most favorite places to go in Arizona.
It is up near Flagstaff.

Believe it or not you can ski there.
( I do not ski but you can if you do)


This is also near Flagstaff Arizona.
This was fall a few years ago.
It was so beautiful to see!


This road I think I need to spend some time walking down.
Some time talking to my Jesus.

What a beautiful world He has created!

Thought I would share some of the Valentine's I have listed in my shop.

These heart ornaments are so cute! 
I think they would make great teacher gifts as well.

Burgandy Homespun Heart

These heart ornaments are painted and sanded.
Each one turns out so unique.

Primitive Painted Red Love Heart Ornie

This is one of my most popular hearts. Stacked with a word of your choice.
If you do the ONE WORD every year this would be a great reminder.

This crazy Arizona Weather

I don't know what is going on with the weather.
I know bloggers in the east that their spring flowers are sprouting up,
and us on the west coast are cold and wet and still covering our plants outside.

We have a container garden on our patio and 
every night for the past 2 weeks
 they have been covered at night to protect them from frost.


Northern Arizona Always gets snow but look at those stats!

30 inches in a few weeks. Man oh Man skiing will be amazing this year.
( No I don't ski by the way)

Most of the week looked like this. Dark and wet and well 
Just Beautiful!


Sorry Cell phone is not a great photo taker!

I actually am loving this weather even though I have had a sinus infection for 2 weeks. 
Grrr Antibiotics in hand and I hope getting better.

Toodles!
