I hope you had a good weekend. Ours was spent doing our annual Spring yard cleaning. That was a lot of work!
With all the rain we have had so far this year, the flower bed on front of our home looked like a jungle.

And six hours later and fourteen trash bags of clippings, this is what it looks like. Much better, right?
Although these old bodies are going to hurt the rest of the week. :)
We still have to pressure wash the stone around the flower bed, but after six hours of work we were exhausted so it will have to wait until next weekend. 

 Before we start the party, lets take a look at some of last week features. 

LZ at The Summery Umbrella  built a beautiful potting bench with reclaimed wood. 

 Jolena at While I Linger gave her counter chairs a new look.

 Lori at Dining Delight shared with us her gorgeous outdoor space.

 Debbie at Debbie-Dabble shared her beautiful powder room.

 Christina at Mom's Messy Miracles shared a wonderful recipe for Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cupcakes.

 The Super Mommy Club  shared a wonderful collection of Mexican food recipes.

 Emily at Nap Time Creations refashioned a tote bag with vinyl. Love this project!

 Taylor at Sugar & Succulents built a beautiful crate ottoman.

Thank you to all who took the time to participate!
