Sunday Challenge

I'm putting a picture into a challenge, but I also wanted to offer my readers a challenge -- I'd like to get more followers!  I've been stuck in the 20's for quite a while.  When I get to 40, I will do a giveaway!  If you like what you're reading and seeing, please sign up on the right! 


More later, I hope -- just wanted to get this up for Faded Prairie's "Whitewash" challenge.  I'm not sure this one works, so comments are welcome.  I used Kim Klassen's "Chamomile" and "Sweet Treat 1 & 2" textures.  And this one is for Color Splash Sunday:

I think it's fabulous. If I weren't already a follower I'd be one. I love what you do with textures. I had a great collection of them, most from Kim K., and I discovered recently that I must have inadvertently deleted the entire folder of them when cleaning things up late one night. let that be a lesson - do not start cleaning files and purging late at night!
have a great week Elise. I love your blog.

Thank you, Becky! I really appreciate your comment, and how sad about Kim's textures -- if you bought them, could she replace them for you?

Kristy said...

So pretty!

Elise... doing my part, I think I just became Supporter #30. Thanks for stopping by my Veggie/Herb Garden Post... I'm a VERY inexperienced Veggie/Herb Gardener, but in the few Seasons I've been doing it the tips I'd share with your Phoenix Friend to get a better Harvest:

1: My above ground Gardens did better... Gophers and poor Caliche or Sandy Desert Soil are fierce adversaries to growing non-native species of anything... so I grow all my plants in tubs and other large containers and fill them with Miracle Grow Soil. (Worth the initial investment).

2: Plants grown from Seed thrived better than Nursery varieties that probably had Hot House or Out Of State starts in life and succumbed to our fierce unforgiving environment. Just something about a plant starting out in a particular environment seems to adapt it better to whatever climate it germinated in. This has been particular true of Tomatoes, Lettuce, Lavender and Basils... which in my Garden when grown from Seed have thrived exceptionally well.

3: Look for "Porch" varieties of hanging edible plants like my Porch Tomatoes, which she can hang in the shade or move around in a way that helps the plants thrive and get a great Harvest from them.

Hope this helps your Friend... Dawn... The Bohemian

Thanks for dropping by, oh yes, a 1600's Crucifix and Rosary with Venetian Glass Beads would be TO DIE FOR! Your Friend is so fortunate to own such a Treasure!
