I hope you have all had a wonderful week!

Inside FrenchGardenHouse, I’m almost 100% decorated, are you?

 

 

 

Today, Mr. FrenchGardenHouse and I are finishing up the garlands around our fence in the front garden, and the lights all the way around the house.

{he doesn’t know that yet, so don’t tell ’til I’m ready, Okay?}

 

{You already  saw our new garlands here, but the weather prevented us from finishing the fence decorations, we only hung them half way around.}

 

I’m looking forward to some time in our French Country style garden, I love it in spring, fall, summer, but nothing beats being bundled up in a sweater and being out there during this time of year!

 

 

 

My plan is to set up a little coffee and treat area on the garden table in the garden.

 

I’ll encourage John to come and drink coffee with me after he finishes

the fence garlands and the house lights. {I have a plan!}

 

 

And this time I’ll serve an actual cake, not a faux one, because…well, husbands and people in general, are more motivated by the lure of real pastries and cakes.

 

And I do want to get the front done.

 

 

 

 

{As you probably guessed, by “I” – I mean John is going to do the actual work, I’ll just add bows and fluff.}

 

 

If you missed yesterday’s post, I’m doing a re-cap so that you can enter to win one of the wreaths we featured from Lynch Creek Farm.  

 

I hope you have had a chance to meet my friends.

 

 

Each one is near to my heart, they always encourage, inspire and lift me up with their words, their sweet spirits, and the beauty they lovingly create in their homes.

 

Shirley lives in the South, and she has a huge love for blue and white, and it’s evident in her decorating at her Berry Patch home.

 

She knows how to create holiday magic!

 

 

 

 

 

Pam lives in the country, and oh my, she knows how to decorate with style.  

She has a love of color, and is so great at mixing patterns!

 

{BTW – if she ever gets rid of that rug, I’ve got first dibs!}

 

 

 

 

Mary lives by a lake, and she spends as much time as possible outdoors in her beautiful part of the world.

Mary always has such cheerful things to share.

 

She has some darling companions you will adore, too!

 

 

 

 

 

And then there is Yvonne. Yvonne lives in a farmhouse, and her kitchen alone makes all of us want to move right in with her.

 

She decorates from the heart, and creates magic everywhere she goes.

 

 

Side bar: I love that we all live in such different places! I live in a beach town in California…each of us lives in a totally different place, but we have so much in common.

 

Just like you have so much in common with us, most likely!

 

 

 

Each one of these ladies is special to me, and I am so thankful that they let me be part of their Monday Morning Blooms group.

 

 

So now, please be sure to enter to win this glorious W R E A T H !

 

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, or the one from yesterday, or BOTH !
