Hi Katie, I had to come visit after leaving a comment on a post at French Country Cottage. My eye was drawn to your cute blog button. I love the colors and design of your blog. I'm really glad I did because I'll be following you now. Your garden is gorgeous. I love all your flowers. The heats been so bad here I don't really garden anymore. I've been poking around your blog and you've done a great job on the furniture projects too.

Hugs...Tracy :)
