My first blessing is that I never win anything. Zip. Nada. Just not one of those kind of people. So only once in a while do I join in a blog giveaway. But every now and then along comes a blog give away where the item up for grabs is something I would love very much to have. Which is what was going on over at Nellie Wortman's blog. I was strolling through blogland and there was this amazing book on Nellie's blog that she was giving away! Giving away!
So I threw my hat in the ring, blew a wish to Nellie and never gave it backward thought. And I won! Now how amazing is that?! To win something I so coveted was my first blessing.
I've collected old windows for years as I used to paint and sell them. So here it is with the window and the raspberry trellis.
Here is the shade garden, and that wall is crying out for more "stuff".
Okay this was just plain ole latidah fun. I did some salvaging of things from the flood for the shed project and this was one of them. The bottom of this ole floor lamp lamp was so pretty I couldn't bear to throw it away. I turned it upside down and put an old resin potpourri hanger (without the chain) on top of it to cover the ugly bottom. I should have got a better close up...it's an angel and a bird.
And TA DA! The front all done!
It is simply the happiest little shed in the neighborhood. While I was painting this door I thought, oh my the neighbors will no longer have to guess that I'm crazy once they see this door (but of course I didn't care lol). And I swear... I no more than had that thought when my neighbor (who I never see or talk to) stepped out on her balcony and yelled over to me..."did you mean to paint it like that?" and I thought hoo boy....but I turned and smiled and waved and said, yes I did! And she smiled at me and called back...."It's beautiful!" Well of course it is. :-)
