Welcome to another Wednesday Share Your Style, friends!!! I apologize for getting the party up late this evening. I have no excuse other than I got five hours of sleep and it’s the end of the school year. No posts for me with the heavy work outdoors schedule but I will be back writing and sharing what’s new here soon!

I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day either for yourself or celebrating with the significant women in your lives. My daugher sent a Tiff’s Treats box of chocolate chip cookies and another of truffles. They are getting eaten sparingly!

Later on Mother’s Day, I was out planting again in the 90 degree heat and thankfully there was a great breeze. The soil is well roto-tilled and now it is just a matter of just digging holes, fertilizing and getting plants in the ground. It was pleasantly comfortable outside, even if hot. All of the plants are doing well with water every morning or every other day, depending. Trying this new strategy this year. A post with the south fence all planted will be coming soon!

Well, this week’s party is all about patriotic crafts, tablescapes and some travel ideas for summer holidays!

Let’s get to the party, shall we?

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Good Wednesday evening, friends!! No new post this week but I do have a couple of photographs to share with you. I was out in the back garden last weekend, rototilling, raking and planting a couple of small trees…

Got the second Jane Magnolia planted near the left corner! This baby will only get to 15′ tall and about 10′ wide. The Thuja/Emerald Green Arborvitae will grow to about the same height but only about 3′ wide. Perfect for this corner spot and just adding color to the back fence!

The roses have been doing sooo well this year! Along the south house wall, all five roses are in bloom. Here is the Miranda Lambert deep pink rose in bloom just before a rainstorm last weekend. I quickly cut some of the roses and plunked them in a glass vase to save them from the incoming rain. So glad I did!!! Love them!!

Miranda Lambert ~ which has a lovely light scent!

We have some wonderful Mother’s Day features for you this week. So excited for Mother’s Day!! Hubby bought me some Ear Buds for this year’s MD so I’d be able to watch movies when I fly next (hopefully our trip to France this summer!).

Alright, let’s check out our features..

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Happy Wednesday, friends! No posts this week since I was recovering over the weekend from that horrible cold. I did manage to get out on Monday and move a small tree forward ~ I’d planted it in the dark the week before and got it too close to where the eventual second iron fence will go. So… it had to move! I got another shrub planted, too. Doesn’t sound like much, but between the cold and major allergies going on, it’s a wonder anything can get done here in North Texas!

But, I am starting to feel much better, the allergens are going down, and we had our first 90 degree day today. Nice to come home and water plants. 🙂 With Easter weekend just passed (I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends!), we have lots of fun Easter features.

So, let’s get to this week’s wonderful decorating ideas…

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Happy to share this early springtime post from Jeanie from the Marmelade Gypsy ~ Birds, a Blog Book and a Book Signing. You’ll love the sweet squirrel!!

Happy Wednesday to y’all! Funny story, I heard some girls talking today at school after school and this one girl kept saying, “y’all.” It’s just so typical Texas!!! And I am definitely picking it up as part of my lexicon. 😉

Well, sorry I am super late with SYS tonight… I came home, ate my Taco Bell chicken power bowl and promptly fell asleep. I have another cold and I am also tired from visiting up north with my kids for our little grandson’s 2nd birthday. We had a great time but it’s still traveling by air (with lots of wind turbulence… Can you say stressful??) and just not being home, so I guess my body is making up for it.

But, anyway, I DID manage to get one post out this week and then let’s get onto this week’s features… It’s all about Easter, amigos y amigas!!

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

Early Springtime in the Garden ~ sharing early photos and really recent ones as the daffodils really ramped up their bloom time!

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Debra from Common Ground has the cutest Easter Picket Fence Centerpiece to share with us all! Loving the sweet rabbit and his carrots…

Welcome friends!!! I apologize for not visiting everyone last week whose beautiful posts were featured. We have been moving the fence out, Girls!!! It is just reusing the current fence panels attached to the new metal posts, but what a look! Overall, just moving these panels has added quite a bit of square footage. Here’s a quick peek…

Where the right end of the metal trough is is where the fence ended. This end was bumped out about 4 feet, as was the opposite end of the 89 foot span. Really excited to begin removing some of the wooden posts and get our plants staged and in the ground!

Just a little bit of prettiness with this year’s tulips popping out just today!…

Well, let’s get to today’s features, shall we?

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Well, having a week off has helped me recover (mostly) from the nasty head cold, plus still do a little gardening and then ending with two days out at a state-wide assembly for the International Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) and Rebekahs in East Texas. A thoroughly enjoyable ten days off from school!

We managed to get the fence moved during this time, also. Well… Mr. Ethereal did most of it but I did help move panels to their new spots and bashed out a ton of nails and drilled out some old screws. What a job! I am soooo pleased with the extra square footage to the yard and I hope to work on getting a number of plants in the ground in their intended spots this coming weekend. A post to come about all the moving soon…

Well, friends, we have a jam-packed showcase of really cool featured posts this week:

14 cool posts to share. Whew! Let’s get touring…

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

Happy almost spring to you! (Even if the cool temps outside say otherwise…) Sorry I am late getting SYS up again. I came home, laid down and promptly fell asleep for 1 1/2 hours. This past weekend was really busy helping unload Mr. Ethereal’s mom’s storage units and moving all those items and boxes into her house and garage. She is really happy with her new home but for now is still living with us while she “sets up shop.”

So needless to say, I didn’t get any posts done this past week but next week is spring vacation/Easter break so I’ll be back at it. Thanks for sticking around while I haven’t been up to much!

Speaking of Easter… this week’s Share Your Style is full of fun Easter ideas as well as St. Patrick’s Day ideas as well!

Also, in case you hadn’t heard, as I hadn’t until just a few days ago, I wanted to let you know two home decor bloggers you may know recently passed away: Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea and Michelle from The Unpainted Hinge. Please keep their families in your thoughts and prayers, won’t you? I’ve blogged with them for many years, as many of you have, and I hope you will stop by their blogs and enjoy their beautiful writings and photography in memory… 💜 

Let’s check out this week’s featured posts, shall we?…

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Welcome, everybody! Some of you may already know this, but mother-in-law found a house a week ago. Since it was a cash offer, she literally closed on the property a week later, which was this Monday! (yeah!!!) She is really happy that she found a home she can love and has been busy updating her address, getting her Texas driver’s license and new car tags. A great week!

This coming weekend we will begin helping her get her things moved out of storage and into her new home. Should be a busy weekend. 😉

Again, I know I wrote about missing last week’s SYS in my post on Sunday, but again I would like to apologize for missing due to exhaustion from work. This is a better week and this students are behaving better.

This week we have a smattering of really pretty features: tablescapes, recipes, home decor, furniture updates and bits of porcelain…

So let’s get to this week’s features, shall we?

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

Happy Almost Valentine’s Day to y’all! I’m sure most of you know Cindy over at County Road 407. Well… She informed me the other day that since I’ve been here in Texas for over five years now, it’s high time I use “Y’all!” 😉

So y’all’ll be hearing me use some twang around here, lol! (Actually, my original accent is from Ohio, so when I moved here, the twang just got worse!) Cindy rounds out this week’s featured posts and you’ll find hers down below.

I am excited to feature more Valentine’s posts for you, and coming next week we will be moving into all things Spring! I should be eeking out a quick post for tomorrow. I’ll be joining the $10 on the 10th gang with a quick springtime post.

So, until then, let’s get this party started!

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

As we finish up with a little St. Patrick’s Day fun, we now move totally into Spring and all things Easter time this week!!! I love all the features everyone has shared and I appreciate your coming back, even when I don’t get time to get back by to say Thank you! for linking up and that your post has been featured (or fall asleep ridiculously early each night because of the craziness of school and students with challenging behaviors!).
