Here's what I did!

I know you all have been waiting anxiously to see what became of my watering can and one of my many empty baskets.
Well wait no longer. I loved Lisa's idea of using the basket to house my coffee supplies. Everything fits great in there and it just looks neat sitting by my coffee maker! AND it frees up some well needed space in my cupboard! Tell me what you think.

And then you all gave me some great ideas for my watering can. I decided on the fake flowers and thought that putting it in our bedroom would be perfect as we are doing it in a cottage style. I picked really bright flowers so they stand out against the blue walls. Tell me what you think. To much? Be honest. An interior decorator I am not!
You all are so helpful! It's like having a ton of friends right at my finger tips. How cool is that? I have the best bloggy friends in the blog world. Yes, I'm kissing up for the next time I need your advice!

Don't forget to come back for Friday Funnies and my story about my very 1st cup of coffee.


  1. I think it looks great. I didn't think about the coffee part, 'cause we're not coffee drinkers. The flowers are bright and pretty.

  2. Well done! The flowers are not TOO much; in fact, I think they're perfect!

  3. Ooooooh!....I think I need a coffee basket!! lol!

    (Ok now everytime I use "lol" here I will wonder if you think I'm really actually laughing out loud!...)

    Love the flowers, too....Really cute idea!


  4. Great ideas on both! I love the watering can with the beautiful flowers in them. They pop against your blue walls...very refreshing.

    The coffee basket is a very good idea even though...I don't own a coffee maker or coffee but I could use it for other kitchen items.

    You did a great job and can't wait to see them IRL!

    ((hugs)) to you, my sweet friend!

  5. I love both!!! I REALLY love those flowers coming out of the watering can!! It is BEAUTIFUL!! I love how bright and cheery they are. You did a phenomenal job with them. Seriously. (I want one!) *smile* ;-)

  6. And if you get tired of the coffee basket.....CHOCOLATE BASKET!!!!
    Looks great though!!!

  7. Looks great!! You did awesome!

    Can't wait til we can post that TGIF girl :)

  8. Great ideas! I love the flowers.... you did a great job!

  9. It looks really good! The basket display is my favorite.


  10. Glad I was able to give you a suggestion you could use! I think your coffee basket is great! We have 1, but it's overflowing - I think we need more!

    I like the flowers in the watering can - good idea. They're nice and colorful - just like you - heh,heh!! :)

    Glad you updated us on what you did, 'cause I would always be wondering. You said to come back for Friday Funnies, but is it OK if I come back tomorrow too? :)

    Big Your-house-is-being-designed-virtually hugs to you!! :)

    Have a fabulous day my friend!

  11. Oh, that is a great idea for all your supplies in the coffee basket. I need one of those! And I love the watering can...not too much at all. The colors make me happy!!!!

  12. I love the watering can!!! The flowers are so bright and cheery!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!

  13. I have a basket next to my coffee station, too! Great minds, all of us. :)

    And I really love the flowers and can. It's a beautiful touch.

  14. Hey Mrs.Kim,
    I love the watering can!

  15. Nice flowers. Lose the smiley face beside it.... My eyes were a little distracted by it. Just my point of view.... you can take it or leave it....

  16. I think they look really nice. Mamie wold be proud of you. You are so Creative. I,m kinda proud myself. We are looking at that land again tomorrow afternoon. I'll call you. Hug my Babies, all of them. Mom

  17. So smart with the coffee basket idea!

    I love the long greenery spilling out of your watering can. (Love the can too!)

  18. Looks great! The watering can looks just like I thought it would in my mind...super!
    Very creative with the coffee as well. I might add a bow, but then again I add bows to just about everything. I was crafting with my sister the other night and she said, "Stop with the bows, already!"

  19. Kim,
    They both look great. I really like the watering can alot. I wont be able to come by on Friday. I am going out of town for a conference this weekend. I will have to catch up on your coffee story when I get back.

  20. Hey Kimmy,

    Big hugs!
