Memories

This picture brings me back to my vacations in Italy. My Nonna did the same thing. Love this idea.

It's raining again today, sigh!

Enjoy your weekend!

We used to plant in cans too...I saw some great big tomato plants in wooden crate baskets recently, and it was soooo cute. Wish it would rain here!

I have to agree with you. I love that it's a little ironic -- growing something that might end up in a can.

Hope you are enjoying your summer. The plants look so tempting sitting there in their perfectly themed pots.

I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weekly event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..

Angie, our tomatoes are not doing too well this year - too much rain and not enough sun!

Aimee said...

How cute is that!!! Recycling, art and a decorative accent all in one!

I just put up a NEW POST on my Blog! If you have a chance, come by and say hi!

Have a great week,
