We had a busy weekend here unfortunately not with the house, Jennifer and Jeremy, her boyfriend, came home from Winston-Salem, NC and just left about an hour ago. Saturday evening after I got home from the mall shopping with Michele and the girls, we went to the Greene Cove to eat, the same place we took Michael and Corrie, which I have pics of in a earlier post. The food there is so good... of course I had to bring half my sandwich home because it is just to big to eat all at once:)
We are making plans to go and see Michael in Annapolis, Maryland then leave there for North Carolina to go see Jennifer and Jeremy's new home, probably around the 11th of July:) I can't wait to see Annapolis Michael said it is beautiful especially the older part with the harbor.
This is what I did today...remember the wood tray I found at the yard sale? Well, I painted it black then Colonial blue, distressed it then added dark walnut stain. I think it turned out great! Friday I did the kitchen door that as you can tell opens out to the garage, it looks really old, Stush's brother was here and just loved the look of it...look at my stepback cupboard, it's been out there since April 7th.lol Oh, well I'll get it in before summer is over I hope:) That's what happens... life just gets in the way! To the left of the door is a wooden pineapple that I got for half off at The Country Store, I painted it black and distressed it, although you can't see it and stained it...love it painted black instead of the wood.
I've had this wreath for years and right in the middle behind the flowers and greenery is a birds nest, I had this wreath on my door when I lived with my son Chris. The birds would attack him every time he came thur the door but for some reason never me.LOl I added the cute crow that Christine sent in my package for the porch swap, he's holding a jingle bell from his beak:) and the wreath is now on my back porch:)
I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments on the post showing my window and stained trim, some asked questions about the valance that is shown in my header. Well, I've had that valance for quite awhile... I had a gift certificate one year for The Country Store and saw the valance and I just had to have it, I only bought one because it was $30.00 but I've always kept it, the star is made out of a suede fabric and it washes up really well. I'm glad I did keep it and for the lady who asked if I'd mind if she made one just like it, I don't mind at all, it's just a great compliment to me...thank you!
