Fig Tree

Good Tuesday Morning to everyone, Was out in the yard watering and desisted to share my fig tree with all of you. I planted it two years ago and it has taken off like wild fire..It's one that at the end of the year dies all the way back and comes back double in size the next year.. I love figs and was so happy to find one that I can grow in Indiana.... 

I have a great recipe for stuffed figs and will share it with you as soon as they are ready to pick.... It's going to get hot once again here today... So stay cool and keep smiling cause soon it will be fall...

My little table

Hello my blogger friends, I'm just now recouping form a week of FUN... After having such a great time at the The French Flea Market last weekend we all desisted to go to Ikea on Monday... Of course we had to pick the hottest day of the year to go, But none the less we had a blast... OK before I get ahead of myself I wanted to share with you the little table I bought fromCarrie and Doug of Hot House Market, it's prefect in my kitchen, It's a little short so I might tweak it a bit to make it more functional...Or it might go in my bedroom as a night stand... 

What do you guys think about it? Marty form A Stroll Thur Life is having a Summer cloche Party so I'm going to join in the fun....

Painting Tile....

Good morning my friends, I hope you had a good 4th of July weekend. Yesterday I started working on my fireplace. It needed a little TLC ... I have trouble taking before and after pictures of what I do, You see I get this idea going in my head and I run with it... and I can't stop. Then after I get almost done I think crap I should have taken before shots. I get so rapped up in it that I forget that maybe you all would like to see step by step on what I do... I promise I will get better at this... In the mean time this is what I have... This is a picture  of the fireplace before 

After I painted the living room the tile didn't seem right, It had a pink hue (not good) it my opinion  So I desisted to paint the tile white. Then thought, I should think about changing the outside doors ...Well let me just tell you I was shocked on how much it would cost, Only starts at $600.00 and up (not in my budget) so went back to Lowe's got some heat resistant paint and got to work.... the is what I came up with so far.

Now I have to spray paint the pieces to the door and put it back together again.

Now all I need to do is come up with new ideas for the mantel...
