Garden House

Wow , I have a lot to talk about today.

Thanks to Karen at TheGraphics Fairy and Kathleen at Faded Charm I have been selling my totes like crazy.

Thanks so much to those two ladies for featuring my tote bags on their blogs, I love your parties and will join them as often as I can. You are angels !

And the last two weeks I have picked up several new followers . I want to give a shout out to you , and tell you thank you , I have the best and supportive group of followers , I love you all !

Okay !

There have been two men in my life that have influenced me.

My Dad and my Husband .

Those two men could build and fix anything they put their mind to .

Between them they built 8 houses including the one I live in now. Most of them with my help . Sometimes I was just holding something steady .

So when it comes to building something I am not afraid to tackle it on my own . ( You remember the table ? )

Sunday I was missing them both , being Fathers Day and all .

So I went to the garage with my tools some hinges and L brackets and proceeded to build something in their honor .

I got this idea from Amy at Maison Decor , she has one of these in her yard. And since I had the windows in the garage and they were to big for my other projects , I decided to make this garden house.



I miss you Dad and Flory , I felt you watching me as I built this .

I’m going to link this with Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday .

Can’t wait to go see what everyone else has posted on there .

  2. Well little Miss Missie Sharon, you are such a hit here in Blogland! I am so happy for you and I'm glad that you are selling your creations.
    I love your sweet garden house, and I love Amy's too. I can't believe you built that yourself. Your Dad would be very proud, I'm sure.

    big hugs to you.

  3. It's amazing what we can do when we have to -- when there aren't men around to do it for us. I love your little greenhouse & congrats on your bags. Jan

  10. Coming over from White Wednesday. I love your new garden house. It turned out so great. I don't have my Father any more either and every time I use any tools I feel like he is right there with me. I loved it that you talked about building this in honor of your husband and father. It turned out beautifully. I want one of these too but have not found a stash of windows as of yet. Your's turned out so nice!
