Sidewalk Sunday and a Hill O' Dread update...

Sorry this one has to be quick! I've got waaaay to much to get done today.

If you haven't started browsing the "Free" section on craigslist yet your missing out!!!!

Check out this baby....



FREE!! WTH?!?!  It's almost perfect as is!

So before you hit the yard sales, thrift stores or even the other sections on craigslist,
browse the free section!! You just never know what you might find!


As for the Hill O' Dread.....

It's now cleared and ready for planting


The pool portion is what we're starting with..


We cheated and hired some guys to clear the hill, with intentions of using them for some of the planting too, buuuuut- had a change of heart when we told them..

"Plant these flowers aROUND the rocks."

and....


They actually planted them a ROUND the rock. YIKES!!!

So we decided we'll probably be better off  doing it ourselves.

Here's what it looked like later that evening after Mr. Treasures replanted aROUND the rock ;)


Had to throw this picture in so you can see that  if I just don't look right, I have a pretty view ;)


So much for a quick post huh?? ;)
Hope your enjoying your Sunday!

Gives a new meaning to communication.
Around the rock is hilarious. Ok to me
because I did not have to experience it first hand.
It does look really pretty what you did finally.

Oh I need to have all the english help I can get .
And to think I made all "A's" in english now baffles me!

Happy day to you Angie.

Wow, great find for free! I always scope out the free section too, but my craigslist is somewhat lacking. I live in a smaller area and we just don't have a wide variety of stuff.

That is really cute - round - the rocks! Love that dresser...seriously, you always score with the great furniture.

We were laughing so hard about your around the rock petunias. My hubby and I were speculating about what kind of guys you hired. We came up with some pretty funny ideas...and some not so politically correct! Thanks for the laugh.

I never knew Craigslist had a free section. Will check it out. Thanks for the tip! It is so funny that they planted "around the rock"! I like your version of it better. Your yard is lovely! I miss CA! Lucky you!
