Arbor House Lane on Pinterest

I googled my blog.
Come on, you know you have done it too!

I know some posts are out there and which ones are the favorites,

I was shocked by Pinterest.
I'm on it.
Well, not me, but Arbor House Lane.

I was tickled, kind of like being in a magazine.
But, better.
People liked my pictures and chose them to be worthy of pinning.
I did what I set out to do.


Here a few of the favorites, mine too.

My gardens.

Saturday Spotlight: Life Behind the Blogger

I wanted to let you know I am being featured at Must Love Junk's
 "Saturday Spotlight, Life Behind the Blogger"

Every Saturday Susan from Must Love Junk does a post that features different bloggers and their life behind the blog.
I love Susan's great taste for decorating. 
 She knows how to spot good junk and how to take it from junk to decor.
She likes white, chippy, flea markets and being creative with what you have.
My kind of blogger.

You will also learn a few things about me that most of you do not know.
Even most of my family doesn't know the new project I have planned for the future.

Thank you Susan for including me and Arbor House Lane in;
 "Saturday Spotlight" 
 It is an honor to be asked.
Thank you to all who hoped over to read the feature.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your summer.

Happy 4th Of July

Happy 4th of July.

Today we celebrate my son's birthday.

 Happy Birthday Chase!

Happy birthday to my son.
He is a firecracker.
Too much like his mother.
We butt heads all the time.
Neither of us is one to back down.
We are quick to say sorry.
Easy to make friends.

He loves bugs, frogs, snakes, turtles and anything that crawls, jumps and hops.

Make sure to stop over Saturday to Must Love Junk I am being featured in Susan's
Saturday Spotlight; Life Behind the Blogger.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July.

Daddy's Day


The special man in our lives.
The first man we loved.

My children helped me make a special Father's Day gift for their dad.

I saw the idea on a blog, but I could not remember which blog.
So, I did what any blogger would do.

Very simple.
Three paper lunch bags folded in half.
Using a hole punch, punch a hole in the middle at each end.

I used scrap paper from my stash.
Letter stickers from any craft store, also from my stash.
Pictures printed from computer.

Each of the kids had their own page.
A special picture, a saying from the internet and wording.

They loved going through all the photos looking for a special picture.

Each one of the kids wrote a special note to dad.
We tucked the notes into the three open ends of the bags.

After all the pictures were finished, I just tied a ribbon through the holes,
 and tied a pretty bow.
I also made a special envelope, also tied shut with the same ribbon.

Mr. M. really liked his DAD book.

Zero dollars.
Brought dad to tears.

We had a wonderful day.
Our annual Father's Day breakfast at a neighboring firehall.
A little work around the yard.
A bike ride with the kids.
Then we went and had dinner with my dad joined by my brother and sisters.

 I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day too!

Spring Snowballs

These are my kind of snowball.
It is my favorite season of all.

I know I post too many pictures of them, but it is a very short season.

I have them planted in almost every garden.

This bush has baby shoots underneath that need to be dug out.
I will move them to a new garden and water them good for the rest of the summer.

This crazy bush is in need of a good trim.
After the blooms are done, of course.
 I also have to trim some of the clematis vines from it. 

They hang to the ground, they are so big and fluffy.

Of course, you can't have a snowball bush without the spirea bushes.

This bush we can see from our kitchen window.
Hard to believe I gave it a hardy trim last year.

Like the snowball bush this is another viburnum bush, I love the hydrangea look it has to it.

Anyone in for a snowball fight?

I am joining Tracy from Fishtail Cottage for a Garden Party.  
If you have not visited her gardens yet, you must, they are a sight to behold.
And, I am joining Courtney at French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.  
No one feathers their nest like Courtney!
It has been a while, I am also joining Cindy from My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
