Making Signs & Photos Around the House

 Wood Welcome Basket
I found this at Dollar General Store for $6. Perfect
place for my vine and milk jug. Sitting in kitchen
window, getting the sunshine it needs.

NOTE...Click on photos , to see larger/clearer photos.

 I made this  Blessed sign out of some old
house siding.   Found the galvanized sheet [on
the sign and also the galvanized holder  at
Hobby Lobby..

Farmhouse sweet Farmhouse  copy [found free on
Pintrest]  Found the  wood sign at dollar General
Store for $5.

 Made the R sign.. Bought the board at Hobby Lobby.
 Painted the galvanized R and glued on. Made the
 Farmhouse Living Pillow on the bench.

Found this cute little table with a drawer for putting
stuff in, at  our local Dirt Cheap store.. Looks like
a retro tv , doesn't it?? lol Perfect match with my sage
green lamps.

Made the sign above.. Found the little tiny word
signs at Freds Dollar store.. And put them on the
wood sign I made.. Easy Peasy..

Welcome sign.. Made from  the old house siding. I also
made a pumpkin patch one , to take this ones place,
when I get the fall decorating done??

Flowers are still going strong..

The 3 trees in the front  are really missed.. Such lovely 
shade trees.. But , they were  too close to the house.
And Hubby hated the balls that fall off the sweet gum
trees.. he had to blow the yard nearly every day
during fall. So he won out, and we had them cut.
We have been working on getting grass back to growing
in the yard.. So , it has been a lot of work ..whew!!

Hope you have a good week.. And many blessings from
God our Father.

  6. You have been VERY busy making so many signs! I love how you used refurbished wood and things from the dollar and thrift stores to make such lovely signs for your walls. I love your farmhouse decorating style :) It is always so hard to say goodbye to trees, but knowing that they won't fall on your home is a good thing, plus being rid of the gumballs. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead :)
