G wall

Another summer  project completed!!! I created this "G" wall in our foyer. Most of the them came from HL. They are a variety of textures: some are metal, some painted wood, some stained wood, some are flat while others are more of a 3D effect.

In the middle, I put the last family picture we had taken on our front porch at our "old" house.

Family Picture Wall

I have been wanting to do a family picture wall for a long time and I finally got around to doing it.

Each of the pictures shows the progression of how our family has grown in the last 13 years. I love looking at these pictures and remembering the kids being so little!

In the middle I added the verse Ps 126:3 it says, "The Lord has done great things for our family and our hearts are filled with Joy."

The "G" came from HL and I spray painted it with a hammered metal spray paint.

I just love how it all turned out!

Adding a little color

I wanted to add a little color to the back porch so I painted this plant stand and table a beautiful Peacock Blue color. It is so fresh and vibrate! 

Amazing what a little color can do to add some pizazz to an area!

Side Porch Cushions

I finally found some cushions for the wicker furniture on my side porch.

They are part of the BHG collection and I found them on clearance at Wally World. Slowly it is coming along. Can't wait to show you the finished project!

Windmill Art

Does anyone know where I could get a windmill?

I love this!!! Although, my husband would probably think I have lost my mind :)

Hibiscus Blooms

What a surprise to see this on my Hibiscus this morning! It usually has one bloom per day so this was treat to see 4 blooms today!

The Fern

I planted a small fern in an old soup tureen and I just love the way it looks! It just goes to show that using unusual planters can make something really simple look wonderful!
