i've recently discovered a can of robin's egg blue paint, an oops can of course, for only $1. i am so anxious to use it but not sure of the project yet - maybe a frame, the wooden plant box out front, a chair?
so the wreath - need i mention it's from a garage sale? - from a crafty neighbor who always has an ever-changing front porch decorated with whatever holiday is near -always cute, always inspiring. i have remade this wreath many times thanks to the glue gun. this simple one is one of my favorites, using a gerber daisy and ribbon from the diaper cake that was the centerpiece at my baby shower and the ribbon that is circled throughout the wreath was from a toy that the twins got when they were newborns -- there is nothing cuter than reading ribbon everyday that says, among other words, "giggles, let's pretend, and hiccem-ups" -- if that doesn't make you smile, then please turn around, walk back up the walkway once again, and reread the ribbon and then smile!!!
that's a SIX DOLLAR project for you! - an oops can of paint, a garage sale wreath, a flower and ribbons saved from gifts, and there you have it - a "welcome to my home" entrance.
