Saturday Sharing from the She-shed Volume 22

Welcome to Saturday’s sharing from the She Shed. It was another busy week here at WM Design House.

Have you ever played Pickleball? It is the number one growing sport in the USA. I have been playing for a few years now and love it.

I play with a group of girls every Monday and then with a coed group on Wednesday nights, but those men are very serious. :)))) I think I will stick with the girls.

If you have not tried it, I highly suggest trying it. However, be careful. It can be a bit dangerous. I have had a few injuries on the court.

Tuesday Night, we were so happy to see our dear friends who moved to Colorado a few years back.

They came into town, and we had the most amazing dinner. It was the best Italian food. I miss this sweet friend, but I am grateful for the times we can visit each other.

We are looking forward to going to Colorado and visiting them in September.

What’s Happening at WM Design House

The cut flower garden is growing so fast! I love going out in the morning with my coffee to see what is new. Everyday there is something about ready to bloom.I even have buds on my Dahlias already.

And My David Austin roses on the arbor are in full bloom.

Can you believe the color of these nasturtiums? I ordered some fun seeds from Johnny Seeds that are very different colors and I am loving them.

I let some ladybugs go in the garden last week. It made me so happy to see a few of them sticking around. And take a look at these pink morning glories! Both blooms are on the same vine that is climbing the arbor. It grows about a foot daily so the arbor will be covered quickly.

What Happened This Past Week

I shared two posts this week in case you missed them.

  1. How to use houseplants in your home which was my Pinterest Challenge Day.
  2. Decorating with Vintage Garden Decor Indoors. I am sharing different parts of my home that I decorated for the summer using my vintage garden decor from the she-shed.

I also set a patriotic table this year, so come on over for the party!

The table was decorated for the party with red, white, and blue. Checkered tablecloth with a picnic basket filled with red geraniums. Charcuterie board, cake, and a loaf of bread on the table for dinner.. a pile of enamel dishes sitting on the table.

You will also love this patriotic wreath

Or these adorable scrap fabric flags.

And these flags are so adorable, too! from Julie @myweeabode

On that happy note, I hope you have a wonderful weekend with family and friends. We are going to have three of our granddaughters over for a sleep over, and then come Monday, we will be ready to celebrate Memorial Day.
