We are closing in on our closing day to be moving over to the ranch house that we bought. I know that some of you were so confused as to why we were moving again (cannot remember if I ever said anything about this actually…) We are really excited to move and have a little bit more yard room for the puppies while also being a lot closer to work and school. This sweet ranch house was built in 1965 and was completely remodeled this past summer. It reminds both hubs and I of our very first home (and still a favorite…)
Too many frickin pillows….seriously the pillows are going to take over our house. I was in a desperate need to clean up and declutter this week and these random pillows almost made their way to Goodwill. Instead, I came up with another purpose for them on the front porch. If you don’t have any random pillows laying around…and you want to make some of these for your front porch, check the local garage sales this weekend—I am sure you will find something that will be good enough to recover for the porch.
Hey all! Hope you had a great weekend….We caught up with friends and did a few outdoor projects. I also hit the sewing machine on Sunday to crank out a few more clutch purses. Go see them this week at LuluBelle’s here in Norton Commons:)
I wanted to share with you a project that we did not complete ourselves….we hired this one out. Our carpenter friend Bob (Bob the builder we affectionately call him:) built it for us. He has built us decks and finished out our basements in the past…and we knew that he was much more versed on pergola building then we were:)
Hey yall! Happy time change….or not…anyone else draggin this morning? What is it about losing just one hour…oy! It was so nice to get a taste of spring this weekend….Made me want to think up some fun outdoor projects. I found a few online that I thought were different and unique and wanted to share them. You can gather your materials this week and have it ready to build up this weekend:)
A few years back my friend Brittany made up the cutest chalkboard pumpkins. She painted a chevron pattern all around the sides and then in the middle she painted a large chalkboard oval that you could write fun Halloween messages on. It was a big hit at her kiddos fall festival.
That was my inspiration for my fall porch this year. I grabbed a few pumpkins and some black and white paint and went to town! These polka dots are so easy the novice crafter can do it….I promise! You just need the right size brush….if you can spin a top….then you can paint perfect polka dots. Easy!
