BUSY, BUSY BEES!


I love inviting these Busy Bees into my garden every year!  I have Artichoke plants in my front yard and I leave one or two every year to go to flower.  The purple flowers are amazingly beautiful and the bees LOVE them!


I just posted a *New Video* over on my YouTube Channel HERE!.  Head on over and check it out.  Make sure to watch it FULL SCREEN!






Have a Beautiful Day!

PUTTING THE GARDEN TO BED FOR THE WINTER + WINTER VEGGIES

Sad to say, it's that time of year again......summer is over and it's time to put the garden to bed.

I love this time of year for the fresh crisp fall air & the changing of the leaves.

What I don't like about this time of year is that I no longer will be growing summer vegetables and spending long days in my garden.

But I do look forward to starting my garden indoors!

Yup...Im going to be growing my lettuce, mustard greens, kale, spinach & radishes in my basement.  I'll do a separate blog/video of that  coming soon!

Check out my Fall Garden Progress



Here is my summer garden that has been overflowing with GOODNESS!









































 All cleaned up and ready for Fall







Hope you all have a fantastic Fall!

BLOG-CATION...STALKER WINDOW FIX (FROSTED!!)

Hellooooooo, my peeps! 
Where have I been, you've been asking.....
On a Blog-cation all summer.  
Wow,  the last time I blogged was MOTHER'S DAY!!
I've missed you guys! 
But that hasn't stopped me from
reading all of your posts!
I have been busy working on plans to make my house into a cozy home.   
We purchased our present home in January 2006, 
and I have HATED IT FOR 7 YEARS!
I've decided, if I hated my home this much, 
why don't I just change it and make it my own! 
 Duhhhh!!!
So here we go!!
My kitchen has been bugging me for a while now.
My kitchen has 
2 STALKER WINDOWS!!
Underneath my cabinets, there are two windows that let in a ton of light during the day, but at night I call them my 
STALKER WINDOWS!! 
My neighbors can see everything in my kitchen when I have the lights on at night... 
EEEwwwwww...Right!

Please ignore the pile of dishes in the sink and the cluttered countertops :-)
Just keeping' it real!!
I need to cover them.
So would it be: 
New Windows...NO....CHA CHING....$$$ 
New Curtains.... NO....CHA CHING....$$$ 
Window Film $20....NO....CHA CHING....$$$ 
Whalla!!!  FROSTED GLASS SPRAY - Home Depot - $3.76!! 
MY KINDA DEAL.


Taped off the windows and applied the first coat. 
 Let dry 15 min.


After 4 coats!! 
AMAZING.


See Ya Creepers!!





Aaaahhhh...Magic in a Can!!  
I feel better walking around my kitchen at night now.  
An easy and inexpensive fix!
Don't you just love it!
Much more changes to come.....
Have a fabulous day! 

BUG HUGS...KAREN

PAINTED FENCES "THE NEW CLEAN LOOK"

I really "HATED" the color of my backyard fence!  So While "hubs" was away in New York, I decided to spruce things up a bit.  I decided to paint my fence.  I loved the clean fence color over at TOOTSIETIME'S BLOG.  Love her Blog!  So I decide to change mine to something similar.

HERE IS THE BEFORE......
YUCK!...
It just seems so gloomy.









AND NOW HERE IS THE AFTER!! 
 I JUST LOVE IT!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?





Looks so much cleaner!
Now on to the next project!!
Have a fabulous day!
