I just noticed the date that I last did a post and I am ..realizing that I am in a total funk. I got nothing!
I try to visit a few blogs each day and sometimes get that done and sometimes not...
Burn out? A bit, but I've been puttering...just wandering from project to project.
Spending time with family, chatting with friends, spray painting this and that..but the problem is..when I do something that is in the least creative...I forget to take pictures..throw up my hands in defeat and do nothing.
So..I ran around and tried to show you what I'm doing...
I decided to paint some things, my bench, scrolls for the front porch..etc. and while I was at Home Depot I came across these tiny little African Violets in two inch pots. They were all dead except this one but it was dry and on it's way to dying too. So..home it came. It's home is now a tiny tea cup and saucer...(I should have taken a picture but I didn't. Oh well...typical!
This one is silk and cost 25 cents at a garage sale! I think the silks look so real now that it is sometimes difficult to tell.
I bought some lovely butter yellow for my bench ..and more Colonial Red for my porch trim.
I love this yellow...but just as I began painting the winds came up with a vengence and that was the end of that. The winds are still blowing!
I have some sanding to do anyway..and I always get in a rush and don't sand like I should!
Don't look at our poor lawn! We didn't overseed this year!
..and look, it matches my big yellow frog!
Another project that I did while "not blogging" was to paper the back of the cabinets..shelves (?) with wall paper. Remember the cabinet I found at a garage sale that matched the one I had at home. Yep..put them side by side and now have LOTSA dish storage space!!
Now it doesn't look so dark in the cupboards. LOVE it! The paper wouldn't have been my choice but it's easy enough to change..sort of! It's the getting up and down off the floor! I love the butter yellow that goes well with the walls of my family room, which are the pale gold I love.
I changed my living room curtains to some with a valance so I can watch the birds at the feeder. Nice!
The little quilt is where Mele likes to lay during the day "laying guard duty" and keeps the pillows mussed so the room looks comfy. :)
Here is the front of that heart..it's tea stained.. :) not dirty..
You can see my step stool reflected in the window. Wait until you see what I did! :)
So even though I haven't been blogging..I've been busy.
I realized the other day how much in my home has been collected from garage sales. Things other
people don't want.
Even that little quilt on the back of the loveseat was a wonderful garage sale find. I paid very little for it and it is hand made.
My little home is a mish mash but I love it!
So you see :) ...it's all boring but I did get some things done.
Love 'n hugs,
p.s. My thoughts are with you, Desiree...
