2018 Vegetable Garden Photos

Hi Everyone, 
I am so excited to say I am well and working hard in my home. As you know this was the year I completely redecorated my home. Its been a busy year as of January 1st. But with all the redoing here, I did take time to planting my vegetable garden as I have done for the past 10 years. Here are just a few of my 64 pots that are full of veggies and it is all grown on my apt. balcony. Where there's a will. there's a way


Red, black & Kidney Beans

peppers, romaine lettuce, kale & regular green lettuce

Lovely delicious baby kale

more beans

large pink & purple tomatoes



and my sweet 78-year-old neighbor gifted me a large bunch of freshly picked cilantro from his son's garden.

Thank you for stopping by.

Repurposed Wall Decor for 2018

Before starting this needed redecorating of my apartment, I made a commitment to myself to not spend any more than $600 dollars to redecorate my entire apartment. Throughout all that I have done, I am still way under budget and I am almost finished redecorating the entire apartment. Redecorating our living space doesn't have to cost much if we just repurpose what we have and that's what I have done so far. 

This last Friday I worked on these 2 plagues I had on my bedroom wall. They were hunter green and they did not go with my new decor, so I painted and distressed them. I wanted them to go with my gray and white modern farmhouse decor, bringing out the blue that is currently giving the apartment throughout a gorgeous touch of color. This is what I did to bring out this farmhouse effect...(step 1) I gave the plaques 2 coats of blue paint. I painted them blue in order to prepare them for the next step and for the blue to eventually come out while sanding them. (step 2) Once the plaques were dried I then painted them with 2 coats of white...(step 3), I sanded them well with my small electric mouse sander. The results were amazing. I truly hope you love them like I do.

They came out beautiful.

The heat is beginning to emerge this morning so quickly, so I thought I better work on my blogs today before the heat rises. I hope you can enjoy your home with much love, admiration and rest.  Here are some pictures to peek through of my new 2018 decorating of my apartment.
