This past weekend was full!
We said so long and see ya later to our friend, Tyler, who has been staying with us as he finished up ministry school. (NEO Academy)
He's a great talent, servant, and all around good guy.
We'll miss him, but we are super excited for his journey. God has some great plans for this one.
My baby Sister, Mindy, spent the weekend and we shopped. I'm not a shopper at all, but we had a blast trying on some Derby hats.
Don't we just look fab?!
Sunday was a beautiful, Sunny, amazing day. Relaxed in the backyard or so we started to relax.
We remembered that we had this pieced together table that we tore out of our basement. This thing actually sat outside all Winter long. Hubby found some pieces of wood to sturdy it up and we got this idea to use it on the patio.
After some black paint, it turned out pretty great. I like how it fits it's new home perfectly.
It'll be great for a potting bench, food table, drinks, or just decorating it.
No cost at all on this project.
Our little patio needs a makeover and we are trying to find a pergola kit or build one ourselves. We also want to resurface or stain the concrete and do some edging and plantings. I have visions of outdoor dining under it with a chandelier and creating a beautiful, romantic space out there.
But, in the meantime........
Since I had the paint out and this old ugly outdoor rug that was left here when we bought our house was staring me in the face. Why not change it up?
Oh, it's ugly and probably not worth keeping, but I was inspired by paint covered hands from my previous project and this blank (dirty) canvas.
I remember having a curly stencil in the studio, so I dug it out.
Hey, the sun was shining and I wanted to be out in it.
It didn't take long and it prettied it up a bit.
A little fixer up for practically nothing.
Though we have been thinking about downsizing and next steps, we sure enjoyed this home and yard this past weekend.
First year tulips looked so sweet
and this weekend kinda made me love where I live.
I giggled a bit as Hubby remembered our Grand daughter showing us this heart in the dying tree at the corner of our backyard.
Loving where I am right at this moment.
