The last time we met we had a little chat about the lovely old wrought iron gate. Today I want to share with you 'the rest of the story'.

Summer is definately on the way in with another perfect day is underway. I may not be at the beach, but I think poolside counts don't you? : )

 

All this sunshine has put me in the mood to share one of my beach signs with you. This sign took a few extra steps to get the...

I’m nearly inclined to rename this one ‘The Break In’! I must warn you, if you wish to bypass my rant, please feel free to skip the next couple of paragraphs : ).

I’ve been a busy bee these past couple of weeks. Here is a sneak peek of what I’ve been up to.

I'm a designer wanna be with zero formal training and a whole lot of desire to create beautiful spaces. I love to turn old into new, to renovate, repurpose, repaint and am not afraid to re-evaluate when I step back to review and wonder "what the heck? I'm going to have to rethink this one!" Come join me in my DIY adventures. I may even share a journey or two! Thanks so much for stopping by. Y'all come back now, y'hear!
