Rustic Chandelier

I found some great buys at a garage sale this weekend. This chandelier was $2, in need of a good home. I decided to place it under a gazabo for the summer months where it will get some use.

Au revoir

We'll Miss You Dad

What a great father we had, always there for us with that big smile and laugh. We will miss all the family get togethers and music we shared. Now you will be with your wife, Toni, and your son Albert Jr. You are the best dad! You will be missed forever. We love you Dad.

Garden to Table

Photos by Jody and Carly Gabara

This is our new section of the blog called,
 "Garden to the Table"
 We will always be growing new seedlings or stopping at the nurseries for whatever is in season.We will share with you what we bought and different recipes for them. Went to Simpson's Nursery in Jamul and got some new vegetables for the garden. Peppers, onions, watermelon, cantaloupe, lettuce and more...

Can't wait to plant them.

Looking forward to walking through the garden and seeing new vegetables coming up...

Afternoon in the Garden

Photos by Jody Gabara
It was a beautiful day in the garden.
 There are so many different vegetables growing for the first time.
The white eggplant is so beautiful and perfectly shaped.
 I wish I could have it all year just because of the color.

Holly the Garden Babushka

Photos by Jody Gabara
Our new addition to our garden is a scarecrow. We decided to have her not be scary and be a woman gardener. I found her clothes at the thrift store knowing she'd be outside. I stuffed her with left over straw from the garden. I can change her outfit for the seasons if we decide to keep her. She seemed to fit right into the pumpkin patch this year.

I found some small gloves from Michael's in different colors, so I hung them from the screen door. The Pumpkin Patch sign is letting everyone know it will be fall soon...

Painted Shutters

I found these shutters at a thrift store and knew I wanted to paint them and use them to hide our trash cans on the side of our house. They seem to work out great!
