July 01, 2012


After 2 days of festivities (shopping and a pool party), I am celebrating Canada Day quietly.  A little gardening, a little sitting in the shade with a glass of wine and a good book and watching some of the fun from Parliament Hill on TV.  How are you celebrating Canada Day or the 4th of July for my American friends?

I am linking to Elaine at Sunny Simple Life today.  Please pop over -  it's always fun!

Here's one of my latest finds all decked out in red and white...

A Vintage Washtub Stand from Beatty Bros, Fergus, Ontario
Looks lovely displaying plants but I think it will end up as my coffee table eventually.

Drum Roll Please -  the Crafty Gardener is the first winner of my Monthly giveaway.  Please e-mail with your information and I will post your prezzies off to you.

The July Giveaway starts today and the first item is the red heart buttons in the picture below.

You can be entered twice in this giveaway.  If you are a follower of either of my blogs, you will automatically be entered and if you leave a comment on either blog during the month of July, you will receive a second entry.  Good Luck.  I will be adding more items during the month so stay tuned.
