Has it really been a month since I posted?
Can I be both working hard and hardly working? I am going to say yes. The working hard part is the work we have been doing around the house. We tore down our porch and replaced it with rustic beams and I have been taking care of all the little clean up and decorating projects (not that I am finished yet) that spun off from that. And my daughter turned 14 so we had a week long celebration. Kicked off with the Frist center and lunch last week, then a day of shopping and pouring our own candle this week, with a nice wind down with a movie and dinner at our favorite drive in dive.
Nice week for all of us!
The hardly working part? None of my projects involved getting stuff ready to head to the basement.
That will have to be on the list for next week. The herb markers have been selling well, so I will definitely need to up that stock a bit very soon.
So, what projects spun off of the front porch renovation?
My husband had to cut the beams we picked up to size and we ended up with these great "cubes" I immediately thought how cute they would look sanded and stained with our house number on them.
It will take some serious sanding to get the saw marks out. That is my project for this week.
And an update on the doily throw.
No update, I decided I hated the look and ripped it apart, going with the original design. So, project delayed, back to stitching.
I did manage to get a little flea marketing in....ok...one flea market find, the others? Ebay to the rescue.
I love this flea market find. It is a match holder. Repurposed now to be my key holder!
I love the touch of rustic goodness.
And I have been obsessed with tracking down this set of Hazel Atlas Childrens tumbers. These are my Ebay find, not a thrifter deal, but less expensive than others I have seen listed, and the seller, who was just awesome, gave me a deal on shipping.
They are so sweet, I just love them!
And of course, our Candle pouring experience. This is a new shop in Nashville, opened up just a couple months ago, and is just GREAT! Such a fun outing!
We have been on a Candle kick lately, so this was the perfect outing for my daughters birthday, she had a fantastic time and is excited to do it again!
They had ready to purchase candles, as well as some fun home accessories. When I saw this table runner, I knew it had to come home with me!
And of course I had to get the guys dressed up for St Patrick's Day!
Nashville Flea market is next weekend, I will be heading over rain or shine, and of course I have work to do for the booth, so I am sure I will have more to share with you soon!
Hope you are enjoying this lovely spring weather!
