This and That

I hope that you all had a great weekend! It rained and rained here but it’s okay my flowers loved it. My son and I spent Saturday afternoon making furniture out of pallets for his back patio. It looks pretty amazing, now for the paint job. I’ll share it when he is finished. In between making furniture Nate helped me make a ladder for my house, when the ladder dries out I’ll paint it then show it to you.

Today I want to share with you some of this and that  I have done around the house . . .

. . . I just finished making a sweet pillow for my bed – I’ll let you in on a secret I’m getting a new bedding set that will match the pillow, I can’t wait for it to come.

This mail close up

Do ever buy yourself a gift for an occasion? Well, I do. I have been wanting this great mail box from Farmhousewares .com I love to order from this company they have amazing items and it gets to me really fast! I just wanted you to see the wonderful detail on it.

I received this great lantern from a neighbor, it was pretty beat up and it was black with a little love and care it turned out amazing.

  5. Thank you – those are the best lilacs for me. Love the scent of them, but alas my allergies don’t. Your little mailbox is lovely and a nice treat for yourself. I know you’ll keep it filled with pretties throughout the year!


    • I didn’t know. How thrilling I’ll over right now. It’s a good think that I have friends that cover my back. lol Hugs right back at you, and congrats on you store being honored you work so hard at it. Yeah! Hugs, Jo


  6. I enjoyed your bit of “this-n-that”… especially the lovely transformed lantern! I also can’t wait to see pictures of your pallet patio furniture – I have been intrigued with pallet furniture for a while, and it will be great to see what you two have come up with 🙂 Have a great day!


  7. Your pillow is very feminine and intricate, very pretty. Your post box and French trash can are delightful. Isn’t it amazing all the fun things that can be made from pallets! Looking forward to seeing the yard furniture you made from them.


  8. Jo, love the pillow. It is gorgeous! Can’t wait to see your new bedding. I love the post box and you did an amazing job with the lantern! Thanks for sharing with SYC.


  9. Such beautiful photos– you’ve been busy and so wonderfully creative. I love the quilt!!! The white lilacs are just gorgeous:)

    Thanks so much for sharing all of this beautiful bliss…



  10. I love that cute mailbox that you got from Farmhouse Wares! It looks so cute filled with flowers and wearing a ribbon. That lantern looks great too. Isn’t it amazing what a little bit of paint can do? I never would’ve guessed it had a former life.
