Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  

First I would like to thank those of you that let me know that Woman's Day was on The Today Show this morning and they showed my seashell wreath!  I had no idea they were doing that so unfortunately I didn't see it.  My name wasn't mentioned but they did say that the instructions are on their website and my name and a link to my blog is there so I'm thrilled!!! (see yesterday's post if you haven't already)  
  
Update:  I found the clip of The Today Show online!! Here it is:



Just so you know....even though I have been in a few magazines, on HGTV and in the San Jose Mercury News, I still get excited beyond belief anytime something like this happens!  I don't think I will ever get used to all these wonderful things that have happened because of my blog! It always feels like just a dream!

Back to Show and Tell....This week I'm sharing some of my blooms in my backyard!  I really have been neglecting my little patio area but amazingly things are still flourishing out there!










If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate. If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog. If your link has been removed, please re-read over the guidelines before re-posting, or e-mail me with any questions.

Thank to all of you that join in every week!

Amelia@ Garden Decors said...

This to happened to me last year - I neglected my garden and patio because I was sooo busy with work and the kids. But lucky for you Cindy coz your plants and flowers still look great. For me it was devastating. Most of my flowers died.

This is the reason I came prepared this summer. Planters, pots, garden kits, and garden decors are now ready to use.
