Today was the day to tackle the porch (from my list.)
The weather was warmer than normal - so outside I went.
This was a $0 spent project - reusing what I have on hand.
First up - some ribbon bows for my driveway lights...
...also for the rail fence swags...
It took me all morning to do this. The tree took a while
to assemble. AND - I encountered a furry creature near my stash. AHH!
Yep - I screamed several times. Turned out to be a
squirrel but I screamed anyway (it was cute tho!)
That tree was a cast off from a neighbor - for free!
(Funny how they learn who in the neighborhood might want their 'old stuff'.)
The pinecones are just snuggly resting in there - no wires or hangers.
I filled this barrel with logs and added faux branches and huge pinecones.
Ditto with this old wash tub.
Not sure I'm loving this double wreath thing I did -
but it can stay for now.
Glad to have it done. My Love will add the lights (if I ask nicely).
Sometime it would be interesting to look at my home with
fresh eyes and ask myself 'what would look good there?'
as opposed to always working with whatever I have on hand.
Sometime?.... nah, probably not.
