A scene as pretty as this should not be called a Spring Re-Run
Decorator secrets- I never, never buy new table cloths, napkins etc. I always keep an eye out for basic supplies that someone else has paid the new price for and usually only gently worn. Flaws & imperfections- signs of use are not an issue for me. My old and new Fiestaware is the most all purpose stash of supplies in my home. They are not fragile and mix with literally any dishes I enjoy using. I never have a real plan for coordinating dishes, pottery, linens- "I just make it up as I go."

You Are Invited
Sweet Seasonal Reminders
These scenes from a season ago motivate me-
I hope it gives you a nudge and brings a smile to your face too!
|We just don't always use these pretties often enough but I will say they are all meant to be used at the Harrison House-|

Milestones are specific points along the route you're traveling [life]. They got your attention-you recognize their importance continuing on your journey...oftentimes in another direction.
Mile Markers are visual Markers along the way that tell you the distance you have come traveling from a specific place...behind you, [in the past].
A New Season

- Because they are such natural beauties
- Because they are easy to grow
- Feed the Birds
- Use in Both Fresh and Dried Floral Arrangements
Is there anything difficult about successfully growing to harvest Sunflowers?

When you weary of Vanilla Christianity
Personal Note: I have no desire to use Like Gramma's House for selling but I eagerly and without reservation will give up space to share GOOD THINGS from Great People
& promote what they do.
[ btw they don't ask for or need my promotion]
Do you not have gourd friends?
I would definitely wish for you to have gourd friends.That's okay, just allow me to bend your ear about my own creative, quirky, artistic, wonderful gourd friends.
I always remember and love to share about my GOURD FRIENDS during our Texas Years. My first unique and incredibly gifted friend [ gourd friend] was Hattie. I kinda, sorta think I recall that Hattie's life experience included teaching very young children-perhaps preschoolers. That was another time of her life though. When she came into my life I knew her as my artistic friend who did fabulous yard art with saved objects like old rusty garden tools. That's just the beginning. Yes she turned unusual things about to be put out for pickup on first Mondays into amazing and often strange creations for your flower beds, wherever they spoke to her.

Plant this NOW for Easter cuteness!
By Carrie Lamont (carrielamont) March 3, 2015
The actual date of Easter varies from year to year.
In 2015, it will be April 5.
If you have time, start this project a few weeks before Easter to have plenty of time for germinating your seeds.

No, I did not forget the #18 mile marker but am just thinking you may be a little weary of my tracking every step along the way of this new and different life since August 18, 2013.
I'm trying to focus on life around me and be alert to things of interest I can share with you. I have not taken a month long nap and forgotten about Like Gramma's House and the readers. I'm just trying to find ways of breathing new life into this 6
+ year long project I'm sharing with the world.
Someone reminded me in the past week that I have had many experiences and been involved with lots of interesting things...and as I look far back into all I have written I am reminded of many of those.
Drop by regularly and perhaps you'll spot something to inspire, amuse or encourage you.
