My Parent's Beautiful Deck!

Hi Guys! I'm still here....I've been meaning to get this post up! I know I said I would be posting more often....I've really been meaning too....it's just that things are pretty boring around here. Chase is out of school and we pretty much just stay around the house. I haven't been feeling very creative either. I guess it's just this lazy summer weather. I'll come out of this little slump soon though, so just stick with me! I'm missing you guys!

On with the post...I'm joining Tootsie's Ferilizer Friday. This is my parent's beautiful deck. They have an amazing view! I planted the flowers about 3 weeks ago. They are looking so pretty....


My mom read that wet sand attracts butterflies. I need to ask her if it's working...



The flowers hanging on the deck rail are called pentas. They also attract butterflies and humming birds. And that's a butterfly box beside them. She is really into butterflies...



Butterfly bush....


These are looking really pretty. I like to plant all kinds and colors of flowers and greenery in pots.







Color Color Color! The more the better, in my opinion. lol...I hope you guys have a great weekend!! I'll be talking to you soon....

I'm a 42yr. old mother of 1. I've been married for 21years to a wonderful man, Kevin. We have one son together named Chase who is 14. We live in a small town in Arkansas and have a dog named Sassy, a cat named Coco and now a chinchilla, Tiki. My husband is a Database Administrator and I have my own business called Kristen's Creations where I make and sell a variety of crafts. I worked in a shop as a floral designer for 15 yrs. until it closed. My former boss decided to retire and lease out her building. I enjoy crafting, decorating, and hanging out with my family.
