Sunday I worked on another one of my “tolerances”…..those things that are driving you crazy, but you just seem to tolerate. Our front storm door has paint chipped off the bottom of it, so Sunday I scraped off the chippy paint and then gave it a fresh coat. Here is the “in progress” picture. I read quite a bit about Feng Shui and the entrance to your home should be cared for and welcoming….inviting good things into your life. I’m all about THAT!
Once the paint is dry, I’ll take a “finished” picture. I know, it’s not all that exciting, but it’s exciting to me to mark it off my list! Next is shopping for a new front door and repainting the porch….it’s become chippy too! (if you’ve followed me on my blog for any length of time, you know I love to paint)
I know this doesn’t look like much, but I did get more hooked on my “Redbud Runner” at the hook-in…..I worked on hooking pods…I like that the rug is large and I’m liking meandering from place to place on the rug…..I’m doing this in case I run out of colors, I can work in different colors in different spots and you won’t be able to tell where I ran out. I’m wiley like that!
We have a forest pansy redbud in our side yard and I’ve never seen the pods on it (those are redbud pods in my rug design…not pea pods)……I did see pods on a redbud today and they are not green….they are brown….mine are staying green….. “artistic license”…is what I’m calling it!
I tried to get good pictures of our redbud flowers today, but I just can’t seem to capture the color quite right…..I’ll try again tomorrow…..this was taken with my iPhone….maybe I’ll try with my camera next time……
A lot of the petals have found their way to the ground….
I love the petals against the mossy green…..this is kind of the color palette of my rug…..
grays, browns, purples, greens……
The hostas are up and the ajuga is blooming…..
It’s so nice to walk outside in your bare feet…..I’m generally a “socks” kind of person, but the winter has seemed long this year….bare feet in the grass feels so good.
More pics of Lonnie….I swear, this dog will let you do anything to him! He is not thrilled….I’m trying to take sheets and quilts off the bed for laundry day…this upsets him, because he likes to lie on the bed and look at the windows for squirrels…..he was NOT budging!
I promise to have pics of Cleopatra in my next post.
