Saturday Nicholas and I returned to the City Market to bring home some flowers and replacement tomato plants. We had a fun morning, made a quick trip to the Plaza, and then home to plant flowers...except then we needed to go buy a weed eater so we went to Home Depot and Lowe's, where we bought several more plants. We decided to just come home and get to work after church today. We did that, but then it started raining so our plans were changed again. Even though I really wanted to get everything planted today I am excited about what we did accomplish. Months ago Daddy helped me make a shelf out of some old weathered wood. However, it was so heavy [because of the way I wanted it to look] that it was kind of going to be a pain to hang. After bringing it home, finding the studs in the wall, bringing it back to Arkansas for some slots for the screws, and back home again it is finally hanging! Nicholas was sweet to hang it, and he didn't complain a bit even though it was probably annoying. I love it!
This is the owl Nicholas got me for Christmas. I would always pick it up at Target but wouldn't buy it because it didn't match my Christmas tree at all [it was actually a Christmas ornament]. But I pulled the loop out of the top because he is too cute to put away for 11 months of the year.
I felt like it needed something along the front, and I have been itching to use these paper doilies to make some bunting. It was quick, easy, and just what I wanted.
I made this painting in the winter before we ever got married. It has not had a home until now.
So even though I didn't get to do what I had planned, I am very glad to have this part of our room put together. It was driving me crazy. Now I just have to get completely caught up, the yard completed, and tackle this disaster of a craft space/office/xbox room...that is for another [very ambitious] day.
