I just love cutting this stuff out of sheet metal. My friend Jenny gave me the idea to do candy canes for xmas, so I'll be busy making lots of those. They'll look better in clusters, some larger than others. It's important to add some color during the winter months.
I got these great antique gym baskets on Craig's List and this one looks cool with the mums and greenery just stuck in with the landscaping.
You can see my miniature spruce in the background. I've done a little planting but I have a whole lot more to go.
And above is the new color for the house, Antique Tin by Beher. I started off with Light French Gray below, but it was too powder blue for me.
I've decided I bit off more than I can chew with the house painting. Stucco is really hard to paint and the house goes to two stories in the back. I have someone coming in a couple of weeks to knock it out for me. It's going to really make the house pop. There was zero curb appeal when we bought the place.
I'm filling in one of the walls in my living room with thrift store and flea market art. Now all I need is a couch.
