You'll remember my friend Clara.


She had that swooney dinner party last winter.....Yeah, I knew you'd remember.  Well, we went over for some grilling goodness this afternoon.  Thought I'd give you a tour of her gardens because, well, I don't grow things not having to do with babies.  So I live vicariously thru The Coop Keeper and my friend Clara.  I took entirely too many pictures, but since this is my blog, you'll oblige me, eh?  Or not.

A garden path along the side of the house....

A little wrought iron loveliness....

.....under the apple tree yummy-ness.

Ok, I'll shut up now and let you ooo and ahhh over the pretties....








*snicker*

'nother snicker..





Storm rollin' in...

And just 'cause Clara is also an expert organizer, I must show you her pantry ROOM.  Perhaps I'll learn to do this in my next life.....I think even Leanne over at Organize and Decorate Everything might be impressed!



Darn tootin'.  Who wants to go play at Clara's?  Yes, she homeschooled her boys.  Yes, she homeschooled her grandkids for a bit too.  Yes, I want to be her when I grow up.  As I said, darn tootin'.

Oh my gosh, Cindy! Can I just lay in her pantry room and take in all the awesome organization? And all the organized craft supplies? I love those chalkboard labels and all the other labels. Wow, she's incredible! I ready for another visit to Indiana. Thanks for meantioning me too. You're a sweetheart! How's your summer going?

Wow, Cindy, I do want to go play with Clara! Or maybe she'd come over to my house. I spend way too much time looking for lost things! Also looking forward to perusing your cookbook!

Hi Cindy,
She has a beautiful country garden.
I love the old benches and watering cans. There is something to see everywhere you look.

Her pantry is beyond believeable, that girl has got the organization gene for sure. It's amazing.

Beautiful pictures! What a fabulous place to live....wow.
I have a tutorial on scrapbooking flower garden pictures if you are interested- these pictures you have here are perfect for it.

Isn't it funny that an awesome pantry is just as amazing to us as that beautiful garden? Both are dreams of mine.

I am in awe. Love, love the pantry room and all that fabulous organization! And the gardens are simply wonderful.

I wish I had room for a pantry. What I would store in it . . .

Question - what font do you use as your watermark on your photos? I love it.

Beautiful garden and yes that pantry is something! I think it is bigger than my actual kitchen.

Beautiful garden and those boots just crack me up. And that pantry room! Thanks for stopping by. Just wanted to let you know I soaked my fabric for about 45 minutes. I'm enjoying reading your posts again.

Yes, that's all pretty fabulous! The gardens are lovely, but that pantry, well - FANTASTIC!! I have some of those galvanized bins, but they sure don't look that good at my house!
Thanks for the tour!

I love the pantry! I think you tape her tutorial on how to achieve total organization in your pantry. I do it by keeping it empty! HA!

The gardens are spectacular. I would have popped some of those cherry tomatoes in my mouth.

So happy to see you back.
Your Friend,
Deborah
