Garden Party and flea market table

Here in the South it is a must to have a garden!! There is nothing better than fresh homegrown veggies. This was a family project, everyone of us pitched in to get this up and growing. If your going to eat it, YOU have to help plant it! HAHA!

We planted tomatoes,cucumbers,banana peppers,okra, green onions, and can't forget the squash. A garden is a lot of work but oh so worth it!

Charlie Mac played on the tractor most of the time......

And all done, now we just have to keep it watered, sit patiently and wait for it to grow. I can't wait to cook some yummy home cooked meals for my family, from the garden grown with love!!

I have been wanting a little table for Charlie Mac. I've been eying the one from Pottery Barn Kids, but just hated to spend 225 dollars on a little table. Well, my mother in law ran across one from a local flea market. She told me about it, so I ran up there and bought it. It was a dark cherry stain color, but I wanted something with more of a statement. I bought red and black spray paint, and went to town!! It was so easy and gave it more of a WOW look. I wanted it to go with my colors in my hearth room, because I thought I would keep it in there for a while. It also matches Charlie Mac's room, so when I want to move it up to his room it will go with his room also. Can't beat a cute, sturdy little table for 30 dollars! Charlie Mac loves it too :)
