Winners of the Gardens and Flowers Challenge

This was a fun week and I was so inspired by your  Gardens and Flowers. You all amazed me by your talent this week! Blew me away!!!

There is so much talent out there and I am so honored you came here to show off!!!

Be sure to go through the links and find some inspiration for yourself.

Our guest judge, Barb from Second Chance to Dream, had the most difficult job picking the winners. She is off to Paris for her 35th wedding anniversary so everyone stop by her blog and say congrats!!! Have a blast, Barb.

Here is the happy couple and family.


Barb had the hard task of selecting the winners, so let’s see how she did. Here is what she said about her judging experience.

Ok this was a hard decision. There were some awesome things linked up.  No wonder you have guest judges every week.  Too hard to choose.

Judges comments in bold.

And the winners are……drum roll, please!

#18  Create a Landscape you’ll love from Confessions of a Serial DIY’er


This is a GREAT tutorial that I will be pinning.  Christy offers us all a lot of info for FREE!


#2 Vintage Kitchen Wreath from twelveOeight

Tanya you did such an awesome job with this. Sure helps me look at ordinary things differently.


#10   Dragonfly Stake from Plum Perfect and Me

Gail  this is so fun and creative. This would be great in house plants as well.  You can also make them in your favorite colors.

#14  Redwood Flower Frames from Casa de Berry

What a great idea to add to your fence.  Love the touch of color. It adds so much to that fence.

#30 Chalkboard Planter from Revolutionaries

Bonnie thhis would be so cute on a covered porch- I have one.  Might have to snag this idea.

#15 At my Garden Gate from Under a Pile of Scrap

Barn Door garden decor

Beth I LOVE the reuse of things that might normally be thrown away. Great feature for your yard.

#19 Coffee Filter Flower from The Ever Budding Bear

  Lizze, I love how pretty that looks.  Who would ever think that they were made from coffee filters??


#6 Welcome Spring Garden from Little Blue’s Room

Angela, what a great idea to start  your son off with a love of gardening. Very cute!

#13 Spring Urn with Bird Houses from Serendipity Refined

Kimberly this just screams SPRING which I so desperately want!  And in my neck of the woods we still have snow. 

#32 Fresh Flowers on the door from Miss Kopy Kat

Miss Kitty this is JUST beautiful.  I need to find a place to get fresh flowers.  I grow some flowers but in Northern MI I have a while to go to wait for fresh flowers.

 #11 Pink Tulips from Design Dreams by Anne

This is so beautiful! I applaud you and admire your painting skills. I love to paint but I am not near as talented as you. You are an inspiration. Thanks for linking up!

Congratulations to all of the CSI winners. Be sure to go grab your button here and proudly display on your blog.

You have earned it!

Thank you to Barb from Second Chance to Dream for being this week’s guest judge and making those incredibly difficult picks. Being a judge is not an easy gig. Be sure to go by and visit her blog!
