Tweaking is All I Can Do

Things that don’t require a lot of energy but things I needed to do, it bothers me to just sit around. So I ‘d tweak something little and then rest, it has taken me all day to do these few things.
The picture is sitting there and has to be hung but I did put the clock knobs from Hobby Lobby on this stand in my entryway. I had glass ones from Target on there and got tired of them, this gives it a more Pottery Barn look! The little tray I painted with homemade chalkpaint in Cottage White

Have I ever showed you my vintage fan? It was given to us from a friend of ours it works but it is noisy. It’s right off the entryway and you can see it when you come in the front door.
When I left work yesterday I stopped at GW, shouldn’t have bothered because there wasn’t anything there…so pitiful! Really! I have to find a new place to go because our GW is nothing but junk anymore but I didn’t walk out empty handed I found this faux fern that still had the price tag dangling off of the plant and it said it was $14.99 and I got it for $2.49!
I needed some height between the baskets and this worked out great! Ahh,I still can’t believe the cabinets are white. lol
Now lets go outside…here’s my wreath I made for spring, I took out the pink tulips and added these two pink flowers for summer.
Stush brought up my rocking chair from the basement and I put the same pillow on as last year just didn’t feel like going down and looking over my outdoor pillows so this will have to do until I feel like myself !
In the back yard my Climates is starting to bloom, it blooms in the spring but not summer and I can’t figure out why. It’s going to be beautiful when all the buds are open, I think this is the third year for it!
We have so much to do in the front and back yards, I never knew how you bloggers in the south got to be outside way before us Pennsylvanians until I started blogging, your homes are all so finished looking for the summer and oh, so pretty!002
Here is my Rhododendrons,blooming so pretty! Did you know this is my favorite time of the seasons? Love it! Today it was 87 here, and no humidity so beautiful!
I’m joining these parties and so happy to be able to , you see today I found out that an old, past friend, I think we all have those, has been really sick and I’ve felt bad but the only thing I could do was say a prayer for her.
Wow Us Wednesday @ Savvy Southern Style I know, I’m late!

It is looking beautiful there, Rondell. I love the front porch and your wreath is just fabulous.

If you told me before....I forgot...where are you in PA? I grew up in Bradford Co...close to the NY state line. xo Diana

I love the knobs and the vignette you have there. Oh, and the fan. And the rhody! When we lived in Oregon, we had huge rhodedenrons, but they don't really grow here. It's fun to see yours blooming so beautifully!

Have a great day.

Gina said...

Did you do all this today? When you were supposed to be resting? What are we going to do with you, Rondell? LOL

I'm so jealous of your rhododendron! My doesn't look anywhere near blooming yet.

Rondell, you have a beautiful home! That clematis is gorgeous! Mine is blooming too!!

Your post is beautiful today. Looking at your words and pictures I feel like I'm sitting with the Queen of Spring - your plants and house look homey and welcoming and wonderful. And all you did was tweak? Great job.

Cristina Garay said...

You sure did a lot today compare with what I did! I like the white tray/ chest vignette and that cute fan. Have a great weekend Rondell!

Everything is looking so nice inside and outside at your house, Rondell.
I hope you will be all better by the weekend so you can be outside, enjoying the weather, and your flowers.

Wow, everything looks really pretty. We had a vintage fan like yours, only in green, however, my sister-in-law confiscated it when I accidentally left at their house after a long visit. She's insisting it's hers and I know it's mine because I grew up using it as my fan in my bedroom. Oh well. Love the wreath! Need something pretty like that! Hope you get your strength back.

Lynn @ UpCountry Olio said...

That vintage fan is super cool! And your wreath is just gorgeous, I think I could sit in your porch rocker for quite a while.


Joanne said...

I love how you just laid everything out there. It all looks fantastic. You should link up at my first link party (Co-hosted)... I would be honored!

I'll be praying for your friend, too.

I love how pretty and welcoming your entry is! And your vintage fan is really special. I would love to find one!

Joanne said...

Thanks for linking up! Awesomeness!!!

Ana said...

Sorry you haven't been feeling well Rondell. I'm just like you, even when I feel under the weather I just can't sit an do nothing....But you know, your mom is right (aren't they all?) you should get lots of rest. Your home looks beautiful and it can wait until you feel 100% Rest :-) Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,

I love the little clock knobs on your stand. You reminded me I have a few knobs that I still need to switch out. Some were from HL but a few I got from Michaels from their $1.00 bin. I see they have more out again now too. I love your pretty clematis and your porch is looking great. I like the polka dotted pillow. So glad you are feeling better now! I can't thank you enough for your help the other day even when you were feeling poorly. :) I hope you feel even better again today! Have a wonderful weekend!

This is my favorite time of year, too! Peonies, Lilacs, Snowball bushes, warm spring days.... the best! I love your wreath! Your home is so pretty!

Anne said...

Love your vignette.That fan is really cool.Still trying to find one.Beautiful flowers.Aren't you supposed to be resting??

Nancy said...

lovely pictures of your home.
Love the porch and your wreath. I haven't found anything at GW, I agree... I did find a glass coffee table at Salvation Army a while back. Here's the post on it:

Happy hunting!

Kelly said...

I love that vignette on your little table. I don't fare too well at Goodwill either. Ours never has anything worth getting. I always say it is for all of the garage sale rejects! Ha! I have better luck at consignment stores when looking for something thrifty. I guess I'm too picky! Wish I had some clematis too. Yours looks beautiful. Alot of my neighbors have it on their mailbox. So pretty!

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Thanks for visiting, Rondell. Your flowers and wreath are looking great. We do take the length of our growing season for granted in the South, but in August, we'll be talking about the heat and humidity!

CAS said...

Everything is looking beautiful, Rondell. Your clematis & rhodies are gorgeous.

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

You've done some great tweaking there, Rondell. BTW, GW has not been so great lately here either. I hope you are feeling better by now.Linda

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

I like all your "tweaks"! I hope you're feeling better soon. Make sure to rest!

Deserae said...

Your porch is so pretty!!! You have gotten so much done...just don't overdo it :o)

Lisha @ 1house1couple said...

That little table in the entry way! I LOVE it!!! great job on the paint job! :)


Patty (Patty's Pretty Things) said...

I remember having rhododendrons when we lived in Pittsburgh. They are so pretty and your climates are stunning blue. Hope you feel better soon.

Ioana-Carmen said...

Enjoy, and feel free to visit me. I hope you will consider of following each other! What do you think?
