Sunny Days and Gardening!

Let's get business out of the way first and then I'll get to gardening ..... Shelf pillows are now listed on Ebay ... Go take a look. I have them sitting in my old wooden trough on an old radio cabinet by my front door and I like it so much that I think I'm going to have to make a set for myself.

I've also listed the matching penny rug too. I so hope this sells. If it doesn't I'll be forced to keep in on my dining room table ... where it fits perfectly ... and sometimes it is difficult to part with
the things that I've made, especially when I know that I'll probably never take the time to make another one for myself.

Ok ... here's a picture. I don't know what kind of flower this is. Maybe someone out there can recognize it and let me know. It looks like a black-eyed susan and maybe it is, but the flowers on this are a lot smaller than the black-eyed susans that I have growing in my garden.
Ok, so I wrote this nice little story about how I came about getting this little plant that grows like a weed along the sides of the road everywhere up in the northern part of PA ... but I deleted it.
I don't want to write in my blog from prison, so the story is deleted. :)
I really need to control my writing in here because I tend to forget that it exposes me to the entire world.
Let's just say I love my cute little flowered plant and I found a lovely place to plant it right outside my front door by our new fence. I wish I knew what it was so that I can buy more.
Today I have to get the weeds out of the entire stretch of marigolds that I have growing on either side of our front sidewalk. This is the time of year when my marigolds get to looking the nicest but the weeds are making it look sloppy.
I think I'll take a before and after picture and show it tomorrow!
Happy Day everyone!

Cath,
I think you're okay.....Jer and I have taken some flowers from along the road, too. No one will notice they're missing :)

Love, love, love your penny rugs and pillows! So much detail and so beautiful!

Your penny rug and pillows are fabulous!

I don't know what the flower is, but it's cute. We ahve some similar that grow along the highways. It may just be a wildflower, and those are nice too!

Your work is truly amazing. Fall is my favorite time of the year so I may just have to pop over to ebay and do a lil' bidding!
