I have been enjoying my deck garden this summer
 while thrifting this week I looked for some items for the deck
I found these great planters Monday and all of them 1/2 price
Also the flower stakes will hold candles
I think the little rain boot planter is too cute!
 I fell in love with this little wheelbarrow planter
I will probably change out the pot to a terra cotta one
This Bird House jumped into my cart at the Goodwill
Mr ALC says no self respecting bird will ever live in there and he may be right, but it sure is cute!!
I was able to buy two of these great new plant stands at
Home Goods with a Birthday gift card
Thanks Sandie!!
I love the detail on these stands
This one is holding my begonias!
The tomato plants are getting tall
Hope I get some tomatoes

This cute little hedge hog is from last summer
and is one of my favorite outdoor things
New Pink Zinnas
I added a new plant to this corner pot
The petunias didn't make it
So this is my yard salen, thrifty, favorite things and 
fertilizer Friday post! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Jane said...

Looks like everything is thriving! You got some great outdoor stuff this week. I bet your deck looks wonderful.

Susan said...

Hi Linda...Love the hedgehog..."key-ute." Your plants look great. Ohhhh, don't you just love fresh sliced tomatoes with basil, mozzarella cheese, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper? Yum. Susan

Deb said...

Linda, it looks so green and let's forget the fact that it has been hotter than heck outside!

Debbie said...

Hi Linda....I am loving the birdhouse, that would have had to jump in my cart too. Your plants and tomatoe vine are looking good this summer! Thanks for linking up. Enjoy the weekend. Debbie

Hi Linda sweetie...
So thrilled to have you stop by. I am trying really hard to get back into the swing of things and start blogging a little as my health improves. I am still very hoarse, very hard to talk. They are sending me to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist to make sure there is nothing going on with my larynx. It is always something.

The Dr. released me to work from home, so I am working from my computer at the house for a few weeks until the doc releases me to go back to work. This was my first week working. It has taken a lot out of me, but at least I slept each night. Such small blessings ya know.

You asked about the flip flops. Old Navy earlier in the season. They might still have some. I love pink, so always snatch them when I see them early. They seem to go so fast.

Have a beautiful weekend. Thank you for your prayers, concern and love. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Linda, I just want to say that if I were a bird, I'd move right into that cute little bird house (your husband may be right-I probably don't have much self respect!) Love that little hedge hog and what great looking plant stands. Your flowers are looking so pretty. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie

sissie said...

Hi Linda,
I'm lovin all your great containers and those sweet stands from HG's are wonderful!

Your patio looks so colorful. My plants are all dying from the awful humidity!

That hedgehog is a cutie and so is the boot planter.

Hi Linda, love your deck and all the pretties. Everything looks so festive.

Thank you so much for your sweet comment at Bella Vista and for displaying the Rooster Button. You are very kind!

Hugs, Barb ♥

That little rainboot pot is the cutest. I would love to find planters for half off. You did good.

Chatty Crone said...

So what is a self repecting bird vs. a non- self respecting bird? I like your birdhouse and I love your hedgehog!

You have a beautiful little garden area.

Girl, you've gotta green thumb! It's all looking pretty!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Linda, I like all your buys. It's been fun seeing how everyone's garden decks look. I keep changing mine. I can't make up my mind where I want everything. And I have replanted several pots too. My flowers and veggies aren't looking as pretty as they did last year at this time. Come on over and see my little planter I found yesterday. xo

Hey girl,
Hubby and I have been junkin' and I can't wait to share what we got. You have inspired us, eventhough it's hotter than blue blazes outside. If you have not raised zinnas before, the more you cut them the more they will bloom! I didn't know this the first year I grew them but learned very quickly! Have a great week.

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...

Love those cute plant stands!! And what terrific garden goodies you have shared with us here today!!
