An Enchanted Box Giveaway

The winner for lasts weeks giveaway for the brass candlesticks is: Beth

Above is the picture of this weeks giveaway. An enchanted box to hold your special treasures! I made this myself. To enter, leave a comment on this post and if you are not already a follower, sign on to follow! The winner will be announced next Saturday and a new giveaway will be posted.


Teddy is observing the fountain clean up.


She loves laying on the cool spots on the grass.


This is always a huge project.


You can see what a big help Teddy is. She thinks if she takes a little nap the fountain will be working when she wakes up.





It's not ready yet, go back to sleep.


Each stone has to be removed and scrubbed clean.


Then all the leaves and debris need to be removed.



But it is always worth all of the work.


Click for a closer look.



The sound of the fountain is wonderful. Now if my arborvitaes would just stand up straight!

Congratulations to Beth!
I never realised that it was so much work cleaning the fountain! To clean all those stones must take hours! But as You say, it´s worth it!

Teddy is as cute as ever :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Lucky Teddy! I swear if I came to your place, I'd fight Teddy for scraps and shady places to lay down and nap in your yard. Can I come back next life as a dog that you adopt? Hee hee

The fountain looks great, and I love the blue totem in the previous post too! Teddy looks like I do in the summer--the heat is just so draining I just lie around and wish for fall to arrive.
