What's On Your Wall?/Outdoor Wednesday

Today I'm participating in
Here's why...we are heading out my back door through the patio and to the backyard.




Right out the back door is this rack that hangs on the wall. I tried to make it look cute for y'all. Originally my plan was to put lots of live plants on it but the shelves really aren't tall enough. My hubby and boys gave this to me for my birthday one year.
I love this wall rack. Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage has the same one only hers is dripping in her adorable dishes! Well, you can just imagine how adorable it is.


You know there's a cloche party coming up. Have you marked your calendar?


Everybody needs a shut the door sign! Not to be unwelcoming but to keep the flies out!
Now on out to the backyard. Here's a little peek at my potting bench. Can you tell how windy it is today? The caladiums are pooped from blowing around.
Are you wondering what that rock is? When our son was little he sat and rubbed a stick on that soft red rock until the cross was formed there. I like having those little signs of childhood around - he's 17 now.


The fish are coming up to say hello! Really they just hope to be fed. Like puppies.


I think you saw this geranium a few weeks ago right after planting time. It's already huge!

Thanks for coming to hang out today. Go over to Barb's blog for What's On Your Wall? and go to Susan's for Outdoor Wednesday.

Makes me a little sad to see your huge geranium. Mine was huge a few weeks ago and I divided it. I miss that huge thing! The fish rush to the top of the tank every time I walk past the saltwater aquarium (hey, we have a new fish!) I love that sweet stone. You should give it to his bride some day if you can bear to part with it. And I love what's on your wall, Ms. Stacey!

Very special rock, too...it is nice to have those little reminders around!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I never get bored with your blog. Two categories and both of them are nicely presented. I like the shut the door sign, the cross engraved, and the vibrant red geraniums. Hope your week is going well.

Darlene said...

I love that rack on your wall and that bubbled cloche is FABULOUS!!! When and where is the cloche party?

Those fish are too funny wanting to be fed all the time. They are like the ones by the marina at the lake.....constantly wanting to eat!

KBeau said...

I do think you're right. Everyone needs a Close the Door sign.

Robin said...

Oh, thanks for sharing. I seriously need a sign like yours. How cute, and the colors - PERFECT.

Daphine said...

lol! I so could use the Shut The Door Sign for sure!!!

Great pictures girl! My favorite is the last one. Beautiful!

Sue said...

Stacey, I need a Shut the Door sign BAD!!! Where did you get that little sucker? Your little wire shelf rack is adorable, too. Just keep filling it up with anything and everything- Your blog header is so bright and colorful, btw... Sue

Simply Dandy said...

I remember seeing that Shut the Door sign at Target a few years ago and I never bought it. It is so cute. Thanks for the little outdoor tour.

Shelia said...

Hi Stacey! Love that sign! How many times did my mother say that? :P
Love your cloche. I'll be at the party too!
be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Lori E said...

The stone is such a keepsake.
Fish do become like puppies don't they. I ate in a restaurant once with an indoor pool of fish. They would come part way out of the water and beg for food at your table.

Sonia said...

Your pictures are so pretty Stacey, I love the wire shelf with the sign and accessories! You asked about the pineapple sage...it really likes a sunny location, but can tolerate some shade...it has the most beautiful red tubular flowers that hummingbirds go crazy for...it usually blooms in the fall for me, which is fine..when there isn't as much going on, it looks great with mums and pansies too! Have a great week...I'm off to Florida in the am...talk with you next week! Miss Bloomers/Sonia

I've nominated you for an award on my site.

Cute shelf. I'm loving your bubble glass cloche, too. It's cute how the fish come up to be fed. ~ Robyn

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

I think your rack is perfect with splashes of reds and against the brick wall :-)

I also like the fact the you kept that rock that has a memory of your son during his childhood years. I think it's a nice conversational piece too :-)

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

Grandma Nina said...

Hi, Just came across your site via cozy little house. And I love it - so pretty. Really like the shelf and your outdoors looks beautiful. I am thinking about joining in on some of these memes. Just haven't had the time yet, but looks like fun. Thanks for the tour.

jeanne said...

Hi Stacey, love your fun post. The coy do love to be fed don't they. Your flowers, especially the geranium is very nice. I agree your caladium is looking quite wind blown. I wish I had a cloche. I keep looking.

Hugs....Jeanne

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Stacey, that little shelf looks so cute! (Luv the shut the door sign) Look at all of your fish! How fun! Why does your geranium look like that already, and mine still looks like it did when I bought it? Love the way it's cascading over the pot. So pretty. laurie

Simply Susan said...

That "Shut the Door" sign is priceless I tell you! Living in the South, it is a phrase that is yelled a *LOT* at my house. It's the only way to keep the flies out and the cool air in ;o)

Ramona said...

Hey there Stacey ~ "Shut the Door" is my family's middle name! If I had a dime for everytime those words leave my lips...great sign! I really love how you decorated your rack...and that cloche..be still my heart...well done!

Happy Thursday.

Smiles ~ Ramona

Brenda said...

Okay, I'm back. I wanted to tell you what my old wooden box says on the side of it. And darned if my email isn't down and I couldn't get to your email address. I have it almost memorized, but not quite. Anyway, here's what it says on the box: "Surplus Relief Commodity, Not To Be Sold."

I love your rack. A few years ago I was looking for a rack just like that for my pie bird collection. Never found one! And that little cloche is so cute!! Can't wait to see everyone's cloches at the party!

Light and Voices said...

What a nice reminder SHUT THE DOOR. Oh how many times I had to say that to my kids when they were small. I needed a tape recorder.
