Getting Closer!

I'm sorry I've been so quiet....I put my back out last Sunday and was on restriction all week. Man, did that hurt. It's still sore, but at least I can walk on my own now. Ok, on to better stuff.

A big thank you to Carolyn at Mountain Meadows. I won her Cottage Charm Giveaway and received the package on friday. In it was a beautiful pillow, some yummy chocolate covered toffee, a gorgeous mug with notepads, and some beachy wallpaper border.

Here's a close up of the pillow.

After all the rain and storms we have had, plus the factor of my back and not being able to move, we finally were able to paint the patio floor of the outdoor room. I just love the color! Now I can start putting things together.....wahoo. Of course we are expecting all kinds of rain and storms tomorrow...sigh.

Here is what the metal daybed looks like after I painted it. Don't ya just love our field of clover??

My newest acquisition...a wood teacart. I found this at a flea market a few weeks ago and while it was marked at a good price, I still couldn't afford it. Well, it was one of those items that I kept thinking about and called to see if it was still there. Not only was it there, but they had marked down the price by quite a bit....what a steal! Oh boy...more painting to do!
