Hi my sweet friends, I hope you had a great week. I have been filling my days with picnics, walks along the pier and trips to the zoo. I can't believe the kiddies will head off to school in two short weeks. Where has summer gone?
It seems to me, summer is the season that goes by the fastest. Perhaps it's because one becomes a little more carefree and the warm days melt together like the horizon of the pink sunsets over the ocean.
I want to show you a little project that hubby started for me a while back, but only recently found the time to finish....
I didn't take pictures of the process (but would be happy to provide you with a diagram and measurements), but this was its humble beginning. It was once a pallet we found on the side of the road...
...and turned into this, oh so sweet, farm bench.
I can only take credit for the sanding, painting and perhaps holding it in place for some of the sawing and hammering, but hubby made it and I am so in love with it!
My sweet friends, I can honestly and humbly say that I think I have finally mastered the glass staining technique.
I decided not to sand this particular
plank because I enjoy its imperfection....
I added a little patina to the nails
to make them look well loved....
Have you tried staining your own bottles?
Such a simple display and so easy...
I think for now I want to enjoy the greens of summer;
I am not ready to make that transition to fall yet, are you?
Thank you for spending some of your time with me; I appreciate your company and look forward to hearing your thoughts. Please know that even though I have not been able to respond to all of your sweet messages, they bring me joy and encouragement. It would not be the same if you were not here.
I wish you a peaceful and calm weekend.
I have been so inspired of late and have so many ideas. Some I have started, while others are written on my long 'to do' list. I look forward to sharing with you.
I also have a great giveaway next week that I think you are going to love, so please make sure to come back and take a look.
