It's officially summer at my house! Yesterday was the last day of school for my kiddos. Now I have a 6th grader that will start Middle School in the fall and a Junior in High School who is about to get her driver's license!
I'm sure you've noticed that I haven't been posting
as much lately. The end of the school year is always busy around here. I've been dealing with some personal/health issues too. I don't know if I will share all of that here on the ole-blog or not. I like to keep things fun and not delve too much into my personal life. If I decide to share then you will be the first to know!! : )
Okay, enough of the chit chat and onto some fun
decorating! I finally finished sprucing up the front
porch for summer.
I didn't make a whole lot of changes from last year.
I still love the wood box I found for $5 at a garage sale! Do you see the rock next to the plant? I wrote "No soliciting" on it with a sharpie! Most sales people ignore it and ring the doorbell anyway but it looks cute!
Here is the wreath I made for the front door. It was
super easy and cheap!
I purchased a wood "S" from Hobby Lobby for $3.49 and some sunflowers for $5.99 (after 40% coupon).
I clipped off the flowers and hot glued them on
the "S". Then I added some decorative ribbon to
hang it from the door.
New and unique wreath for $9.48!
We're still working on the backyard and patio. The
mulch is finally finished and I've planted lots of flowers. We moved the furniture around on the patio and I really like it!
I think the next project for the patio might be this . . .
I LOVE that pallet table!
Anyone know where I can get a free pallet?
