~Hey Mister! What are Those?~

~Trash to Treasure~


So I walked out of the house one afternoon to meet Mr. Sweetie
when he got home from work and he had two really cool
heavy industrial valves that came off of one of his jobs in the back of his truck.


They were headed back to his shop as trash!
WELL...hold on there!
I love the industrial look and with a little convincing we unloaded them
off his truck and set them on the patio.
I had the galvanized tops with the crimped edges made
for them at our local sheet metal shop and....


Transformed them into some really cool plant stands!

Projects like this are fun & easy...you just have to keep
your eyes open to those one of a kind pieces that may be
headed to the trash unless you save them!

~ Awning Creation ~

I'm so excited to finally find a place for this awning in my garden.

What awning...I'm looking at old window screens!

Old window screens

I came across five vintage screens ...the perfect shade of green...
today at Frisco Mercantile while I was stocking Chalk Paint™ in my booth.
If you happen to need Chalk Paint™ stop by my booth #603!


I painted this double wide metal awning with 5 colors of Chalk Paint™ several months ago.
It has been waiting to be used somewhere in the garden.


So I attached two vintage screens high on the fence and hung 
the awning on the screens.

Now the sink area has a cover and the awning finally has a home.

One awning off the driveway...now three more awnings to find a home.
Stay tuned...I have a plan!

My husband is soooo glad one awning is
not hanging out on the driveway anymore!!!

~ Pumpkin Time ~

I made a trip to Calloways this morning to check out their pumpkin patch...
...love the gray and white pumpkins.
I made a little arrangement in the front yard.

Pumpkin Time

I'm taking a seven week digital camera class...
My daughter is a professional photographer and
I purchased her first camera.
Now I just need to learn how to use the thing!

My homework assignment this week is to take 10 acceptable
pictures of people...both inside and outside pics.

I teach a Chalk Paint™ workshop this Saturday so
guess who I will be taking pics of...
my students!
