Friday Favorites

My favorite thing on this rainy Friday is this awesome sign I bought today at Hobby Lobby. It was half off of $8.99, so $4.50. LOVE IT!!! I hung it in my foyer over a mirror. I usually buy something and then can't find a place for it, but I actually found the right spot this time. It had been a few weeks since I had been to HL so I was excited to see some new merchandise. They have a bunch of new signs/wall stuff and I could have bought several more, but I just bought one. I may go back tomorrow if I can think of where to put more of them. Have a great Friday and weekend y'all!

A Favorite Bunny

This is one of my favorite bunnies. I love the colors and that she has a basket I can put something in. It's raining today so I plan to stay in and hopefully be a little creative! Enjoy the rest of your day!

A Spring Vignette and a Few Questions Answered

Here is a little Spring vignette in my dining room. I have been working on something for my dining room table, but can't seem to get it the way I want it to look. Some of you out there are so good at tablescaping and centerpieces, but I always have trouble with that.

Thank you for your sweet comments about my little side yard. It is an area outside my kitchen windows. I'll show the rest of my yard another time. Several of you asked about hanging pieces on brick. My husband has a special drill bit he uses and he does it into the mortar area. I know it's not easy because he doesn't jump for joy when I tell him I have something I want to hang outside on the brick. It takes some arm strength, but it can be done.

D (no blog) asked where I got my Bouquets of Happiness bunny plate in my kitchen and redpolkadot (don't know how to leave her a comment) asked about my French veterinarian/dog picture in my living room. They both came from my favorite store, Hobby Lobby. I don't know what's wrong with me, but it has been at least 2 weeks since I have been there. I may have to go today since I'm sure all the employees are worried about me. Have a great day everybody!

Using Iron Pieces Outdoors

I love iron pieces and use them inside and outside my home. They're great outdoors because they can withstand the weather and look good even when they get rusty. Here are a few pieces I have around the back of my house. I have one on the front of my house too, but forgot to take a picture of it. That's my dog, Zoe, in the last picture and she is hoping y'all have a marvelous Monday!

From Wild Animals to French Country Flowers

I have had these animal pictures for years, back when I had this type of look in my bedroom in my previous house. I kept them because I like the frames with the crackle finish on them. I went shopping up in my attic this weekend and got these down to change and find a place to hang them. I picked out 2 pictures from my collection of old calendars and put them in the frames and now I have new artwork to display. I haven't decided where they'll go, but I'll show you when I do. I love free projects like this one! Have a great Monday y'all!

Front Door Planters

I bought 2 of these brown metal wall planters at Michaels for my front doors. They were the right size and shape, but the wrong color. Of course, we all know some spray paint can work wonders so I painted them white and aged them to the color I wanted. I added some yellow tulips to them and am so happy with how they turned out! I am loving putting out Spring stuff!

Black and White Plates

I finally hung these black and white plates from TJ Maxx over my initial picture in my office/guest bedroom. I love them and wish I would have bought more when they had them. I always find the best plates for cheap at TJ Maxx and Ross. They are usually under five dollars. Happy Monday evening to you!

An Easy Watering Can Redo

I bought this watering can recently at Tuesday Morning. I didn't particularly like the pink roses painted on it and knew I could change it. At first I was going to paint over it and stencil something, but I decided to just tape on a piece of scrapbook paper and it turned out really good. I taped it instead of gluing it so I could change it when I want. I am happy with the way it looks with the yellow tulips and grass in it. I had fun this weekend putting out bunnies and other Spring/Easter stuff. I'll be working on it the next few weeks. Have a great Monday!
