Garden cement and ivy

Happy White Wednesday everyone! I am a bit late today because I was going to use
my previous post for WW, but then changed my mind. I fell in love with this cement
 angel when I found her at TJ Maxx for 7.99 so she just had to come home with me.  I
have had the cement candleholder for a few years and I love it as much as the day
 I first purchased it.  

 I had a message written on this chalkboard for my granddaughter when she visited a
little over a week ago and yesterday I swapped out her name for  SPRING.
We are having way above normal temps here this week in Michigan and I am loving it.
70's and by the weekend 80 degrees!!  BRING IT ON!!

{I will say that Allysha noticed the *welcome* message right away and loved it!
I will also say that this arrangement needs help, but I wanted to show the chalkboard.
The little bush thing is dying or dead and I just need to change things up.}

I have realized this winter that I still have somewhat of a green thumb after all!! lol
I had purchased some ivy last year at the big box store for a little over $1 each and planted
some in containers for outside during the summer. When it was time to button everything
up for the winter, I brought these inside thinking they would never live. Not only did they
live, but they have flourished! They are on the back porch where it gets quite chilly in the
winter and maybe that is it. Whatever the reason, I am a happy camper!!

This plant is on the cupboard that hubby built out of old doors for me to cover our water heater. As
you can see this plant is huge too! I am delighted...happy WW everyone! Please visit Kathleen over
at Faded Charm again this week for more beautiful posts.

Hi Sandi! Your ivy is BEAUTIFUL! I always manage to kill ivy...maybe I had it in a too-warm place. Your little angel is adorable!

Happy WW!

You've got a little garden angel almost like mine, Sandi, who sits and watches over my deck during the summer. :) Your ivy is so stinkin' healthy! You MUST have a green thumb! Careful if you decide to keep it planted outside, though. Mine took over the landscaping at our lake house. It's got a mind of it's own!!! lol!
