SPT: Something New - A Triptych

Lelly's SPT challenge for the merry month of May continues with something new this week. I decided to make a triptych of the newness around my neck of the woods.

First, our *new* floors. Well, sort of. Last July we had to take a forced vacation while our floors were repaired. Not too long after we returned, the section of wood that had been replaced began to buckle. Not. A. Good. Sign. After much dragging of feet (mine) they are being repaired by a different floor company, and we are moving out again. Tonight. Gulp.

Second, here is what's new in our garden bed. The Zinnias are hardy, the corn is growing taller, and a few tomatoes are beginning to pop out. Honestly, everything else is going to be a surprise. Sadly, I did not make those cute little markers that tell you what's what. I must like to garden by the seat of my pants. Good thing I like surprises, right?

Third, these perky little red shoes are new. They make me feel a little more spiffy. That's a good thing.

Looks like the triptych is complete. Make sure to click over to Lelly's blog to read about other new things. C'mon, it'll be fun...and new.

    Love the "garden bed" so cute, I think I may have to borrow that idea!
    Cute cute shoes-

    And not sure what to think about getting the wood floors-
    Always fun to get something new, but this I am not so sure- good luck!

  3. Oh Holly, I think the same thing is happening to our new floors and I want to die. The dude is contacting the floor company because he thinks it is a manufacturer's defect. UGH! I can't think about re-doing it. I will have to be out of town.

  6. You can cross your toes? ;) Your floors will be gorgeous when they're all done! I'm so jealous, too. Our floors are hideous...carpet is utterly wasted on families with children. And who ever thought light beige would make a good carpet color was smoking something! Your shoes are darling and good luck with your garden!

  7. I love the "garden bed". What a fun idea. Flooring issues are the worst. I am glad you won't have to be out of your house for too long.

  10. Love the new floor. Sounds like it was quite the ordeal. I was outside today weeding. We are going to try and plant our garden this week. It snowed just last week again. Who knows if anything will grow this year. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

  11. I love all your "news". I feel for you on the floors, we have had to move out for the floors before, but nice to have them done. I envy the garden, I LOVE gardening, I have yet to find a place to garden here since we moved 3 yrs ago. And new shoes are always a good thing!
