I know Memorial Day is more than nice weather, BBQs and fun so I want to start off with saying that I appreciate all the people that defend our country and the ones that have given their lives in that pursuit.
Today was a lovely day. I usually attend a parade but it wasn't in the cards this year. Instead I spent the morning drinking a big coffee and getting some of my projects done. I was wildly productive. I adore mornings spent organizing and doing stuff at home. I'm finding with the close of the last chapter of my life, I actually want to be at home, in my own space. It's so nice to concentrate my own world again.
Anyway, I have been going to yard sales with some friends on Saturday mornings and I pretty much use my back porch as a storage area until I do the projects that I bought stuff for. BUT, I couldn't take it. The entrance to my house is through this back porch and it was so awful looking. It really started to look like an episode of hoarders.
My favorite part of this "vignette" is the crate. I added a coat of spray paint so that it looks a little weathered. I'm going to add some different plants to it but for now I put the flowers from the graduation ceremony on there (and added the flag in honor of today). I think some green plants will look great on this.
Here is the house (with Jill and Gillian) It's so cute. I wish I could live here.
Here the ladies are by the hot tub.
I hope that you all had a great weekend!
