My flowers are doing well in the back patio area! They are protected from the deer.
After these guys left, another visitor came along. A gray fox!
My oldest son was here all week, so we were busy having a good time. We did manage to get some things done, though.
We got the rug down in the office.
We started organizing the pantry. (I don't have it stocked with many cans yet.)
My son talked us into getting a P-Touch label maker to help with the job! I love it!
I managed to create a temporary guest bedroom out of a 12' x 6/5' closet! It had wallpaper in it along with shelves, so I stripped them out and repainted tan over the dark maroon. I added a twin sized bed, a $5 thrift shop table, a lamp, and a rattan chair that I bought months ago for $4. The ottoman I had already along with the lamp and coral. The bedspread was an estate sale find for $5. I made the pillow by sewing a rectangle of burlap to a pillow I made from a canvas drop cloth. I hand painted the word "beach" on it. Later, some of these items will go in the beach bedroom I hope to create so I can showcase the large watercolor my sister did of my granddaughter and I on the beach.
A new Goodwill store opened in Kerrville and I bought this coffee table to replace the one I was using (and didn't like.) I touched up some dings with stain on a Q-tip!
I'll save another find for another day. I think it will bring back memories for a lot of you!
