Summer project - Redoing the boy's room.
New paint chosen by the boy (Teton Blue by Behr), applied by yours truly.
I love to paint!
Crown moulding installed by Ron.
We found the most gorgeous old barn door.
The boy wanted to make a new bed for himself (with Ron's help),
and this barn door will be the headboard.
Rusted and worn to perfection.
From my Study in Succulents project.
Found this sweet little stool at my favorite treasure shop.
Another found treasure.
These gorgeous horns may need some work, but when Ron's done,
they will be magnificent again.
Twin gifts for two very special ladies.
A gift from Ron.
Did you know I collect old locks and keys?
Shocking, right? *wink*
More from my Study in Succulents project.
This little machine gets quite a workout around here.
Calm and peaceful, sometimes.
Happy Wednesday, dear hearts. I hope your week is wonderful thus far and will continue to be so. This summer is winding down. How is that possible? Our summer was different this year. It feels to me like The Summer That Never Was. Do I feel that way every year around this time? Maybe to some degree...I don't know. Today, the sun is out, there is a mild breeze, the birds are singing, no one in the neighborhood is running their leaf blower or weed wacker, and I have a bored teenager on my hands. I guess if that doesn't define a good summer day, nothing does.
So here's to making the last weeks of summer count. Every single day. My unsolicited advice? Wake up with a smile, even if you have to force it. I read that if you are feeling stressed, force yourself to smile for a few moments. The real deal smile that crinkles your eyes. The study showed that you will actually lower your heart rate and have a more positive outlook. It works for me! So give it a try...
