Hello there, welcome to my backyard gate. The Endless Summer Hydrangeas are happy you stopped by to visit as well.
Hydrangeas were a lovely gift from my beautiful sister, Cathleen. Isn't she so sweet?
There's nothing like a vintage tablecloth with "roses" and an antique lace tablecloth to make an ordinary table look so pretty! The glass candle holders I created by taking remnants of my favorite rose patterns and scanning them, then I modge podged them right onto the glass, and sealed them for protection.
The pillows I sewed from a vintage bedsheet, and the bottom seating I inserted three euroshams inside a twin sized vintage duvet.

This was a $15 dollar find several years ago. Although when I bought it, it looked nothing like this. The "sunburst" wrought iron chair was rusty crusty white and the seat was in diplorable condition. I cleaned it, painted it ice cream pink, and used a lovely rose fabric pattern and finished it with clear plastic cover to protect it.
These candlesticks were also revived. They were originally gold painted, however me loving pinks and yellows so much, I just had to freshen them up!
This was a project I worked on early this spring. The shutters were once in my kitchen. We removed them several years ago and saved them. Then I saw a picture in a magazine and it got my creative juices flowing again, so I painted the shutters apple green and had my husband make a flower pot holder. The garden sign was an ebay find.
The aluminum chair was once painted mustard yellow until I got my little hands on it! I pondered whether I should paint the roses or not and well, I think you know what I ended up doing.
