Hi Fancy Friends! Well, I promised to update you at the end of the month on my To-Do List and I’m pleased with the progress I made overall. I also spent some time this month nurturing my family and my dreams, but more on that later… here’s my progress to date.
1. Finish up the front beds. Check!
My new rose bushes are happy campers with a fresh layer of mulch now!
2. Polish up the front door hardware. FAIL.
This was a no-go after some elbow grease and Brasso. My next attempt will be with Rub ‘n Buff. If that doesn’t work, we’ll have to spring for new hardware (insert sad face).
3. Paint house numbers on my front door. Check!
Love how these turned out!
4. Get the porch ship shape. Check!!
5. Paint a certain little chair to add to the mix. Check!
How cute is she?? Love the punch of blue to my patriotic porch!
6. Paint the inside of my front door. In Progress…
I’m still drilling down on the color, but I think I’ve made some headway and I’ll be sharing that process with you soon.
So, not bad progress, eh?
In the midst of checking things off the list, I also realized how important it is to spend time with my family and doing other things I love.
Like celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary at the lake…
Celebrating my “baby’s” 14th birthday…
And taking in my very first blogging conference, Haven, here in Atlanta.
I learned a lot and met so many wonderful generous home decor and DIY bloggers! It felt so good to spread my wings a bit and go out on a limb! I truly love to learn new things and this was the perfect forum to do so.
Summertime is more than just a chance to get for me to get my To-Do Lists done… God put that on my heart and I’m so glad I tuned in enough to listen.
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)
