Busy , Busy Bee

I have been BUSY! I painted a darker color around my windows ( after scrapping off the old stuff first...ugh) I painted stars on my pots. I made cushions for my rockers. My husband hooked up our new walkway lights. We have matching ones for the front door but didnt get to them yet.
I planted flowers including a new clematis since I killed the last one. Look mom...I didnt kill the roses yet!

I put out a new welcome mat for Sue and Cheryl!
I also got frames and framed my boys artwork for the computer room.

And FINALLY I've been enjoying this little guy......

OOOH...I just love him!!!

Christina I love your porch! Love the fabric on the rockers for the cushions too! I would love to sit out on your porch and have a tall glass of sweet ice tea with you and Sue. : ) Of course it would have to be after we went fabric shopping. Hee Hee. You have been busy.

Ah, you are sweet to put out the new welcome mat for us. I am so there.

Your neices dress is beautiful and she is just darling to boot....your sister must be beside herself with a son that has graduated. Yep, time does fly. I am so glad you been enjoying that "cute" little face of the little one in the last pic in your post. He won't be little long. As you can see, they grow TOOO FAST!
Enjoy your weekend!

Making a house to look like a home is the best.

I LOVE the rocking chairs on your front porch! And the pillows that are on pretty and cozy looking! I could sit out there with a glass of iced tea and chat the evening away!
Have a great day!

The "makeover" for your front porch is perfect....I'm a fabricaholic so I particularly liked the fabric you used on the cushions. I wouldn't have thought of painting stars on the flower pots - do you mind if I copy your idea? Blessings, marlene

I love your new front porch! What a nice facelift - doesn't it make you proud when you come home and see that work you did?! I love the pictures of your boys - they are so cute... especially the littlest!
