So great! I really need to get cracking if I want my back yard Pimped out right by Memorial Day!

Tracey @ My House of Giggles said...

Oh myyy...I could just die for each and every one of those beautiful patios!! You've got me dreaming :)
Thanks so much, Suzanne...for trying to vote for my husband's song!! It's a really non-user-friendly process they've used for the rating...you actually have to be LOGGED IN to Youtube to see the star rating scale, and that's when you can rate the song. He is Entry #5 for the Kind of Floors Hockey Son....

Thanks so much!

So happy to have found your blog, it's lovely .
