My Weight Loss Journey

Sorry I have been Missing In Action.......

Sorry I have been really bad about updating my blog. It seems I have been on a dead run for weeks. It started with my nephew, Shane's, graduation and it has not slowed down since. Anyway, here is a little glimpse of my life the past few weeks.

I will start with my flowers. Because we are renting and could be moving again any time, I do not have any perennial gardens to add onto. But that didn't stop my from decking out the decks with gorgeous colorful flowers. I told Brent that I was not going to go hog wild because we are in transition.....well, I guess I just couldn't not help myself and he was NOT surprised.

I was at an adorable antique country store a couple weeks ago and found these old laundry tubs with stand and all, I was thrilled!!!!!! I have wanted one of these for years. It also has the hand wringer that goes in the middle of the tubs but I don't want to expose it to the weather and sun so I am waiting to display the tubs with the wringer until I have my new house with a covered porch someday. Which sounds like might happen soon :)

I picked up this primitive looking planter a couple weeks ago also and I LOVE it!!! I planted some thyme in it and it smells awesome!!!!!!

The deck here at the rental is a two tier deck which is nice so I have lots of room for flowers. This is a view of the bottom tier. I know the chairs are tacky....but again we are in transition but look out when we get into our house....I will be buying some awesome deck furniture and that is what my husband is afraid of :) But for now, these charis are a place to sit and relax.

I also picked up this unique planter. A lady makes them out of concrete and adds old rusty accents to them....I LOVE THEM!!!!

I bought this rusty wire plant stand last weekend and my red impatience pots look gorgeous in it....what a great addition to my collection

Every time I went out the sliding glass door which leads onto my deck a bird would fly off out of no where. After several days of this I took the time to look real close and found she is starting a family in the crook of my twig heart wreath....cute!!!!! I can't wait to see the babies when they hatch. onto my latest creations. Here are my work in progress door doll crows.

And here is the finished crow....I LOVE it!!!!

I also made a watermelon table topper, here is it in mid-painting

Here is is finished.....I LOVE the American Flag!!!!!

God Bless America

Watermelon ornies work in progress


Last but not least....Brent and I went to visit our grandson, Noah Ross Kronlund, while he was camping with his great grandpa and grandma last Wednesday. He is so special and SMART and I LOVE him SO MUCH!!!!

He loved the campfire and also showed me his new swimming trunks, his swimming floatie, his bike and the fireworks grandpa was going to lite off later. He was so excited about fun!!!!!

Here is a picture of my grandson, Carson Charles Kronlund. He is ALL boy and a very busy boy that's for sure. He is so precious and I LOVE him VERY MUCH!!!!! Thank you Jesus for my precious grandson's....I am truly a blessed woman!!!!!

Well, that'a about it for now. Hope you all are having a blessed summer so far.....God Bless...Rhonda

This is my first visit here and I must say I LOVE YOUR BLOG!
The pictures of your deck are just wonderful, I can only imagine what your new home will be like all decorated. How blessed you are to have a nest so you can enjoy more of God's creation in your own backyard. I love the music on your blog too! I also love your work!! The crows on the watermelon are just as sweet as can be!
I hope you don't mind if I add you to my blog list, as I don't see any button where I can become a follower.
Blessings to you~ Birgit
