I've been in my first place for 3 years now. That is very hard to believe. It has definitely been a work in progress but I have loved seeing the transformations unfold.
Below is the first picture I took of my front porch. I had removed the old screen door and the mailbox and that's about it.
And here is what it looks like now. Last month I painted the concrete Benjamin Moore Embassy Green. I was tired of the weird stained concrete porch and wanted to freshen things up. Last year I pulled the mailbox back out of the attic and painted it bright red. It looks great now! My door is painted Benjamin Moore Calypso Blue. It took me forever to pick the perfect shade. I love how it turned out. Plus changing out the hardware was a huge improvement.

Hello everyone! As I was organizing and cleaning until 3am this morning as expected guests are now coming tomorrow instead of Sunday I realized I haven't been keeping up here, you know how those semi conscious thoughts come flowing in the exhausted wee hours. Soooo, I'm officially working on some things! Last year mom stuck this little witch hat on Mr. Crow as a joke but I love it! So he's always up to no good. As is Lil Bit, below. Nothing but adorable trouble. My tablescape has changed since then but he thought he made a nice ornamentation. The orange pumpkins, above, I got on major sale a few years ago. They were metallic gold and I almost gave them away this year because I started to hate them but inspiration hit me when I realized I had some orange paint in my paint stash so I gave them a quickie glaze and voila! Orange pumpkins that I didn't have to rebuy!
I've been crafting away the last few weeks making holiday vignettes. I made this absolutely adorable haunted house. I was sad to see it go but I know they will love it! Spooooky!
I enjoy seeing what everyone is doing with their own holiday décor. If you have suggestions for other great blogs or IG users please share. I'm heading to the Country Living Fair this weekend, anyone else attending? I love it!
Have a bright day!

We’ve been so busy with garden tours of late! I’ve got more to come but in the meantime here are some wonderful pictures from the 2014 Cobb County Master Gardener Tour to inspire your next garden project! I’ve got quite a few ideas in the works. Enjoy!
I’m obsessed with these adorable ceramic flowers! Instant color and cute to boot!
We had a wonderful time touring each lovely garden and look forward to next year! Now to go work in our own gardens!
Have a bright day!
