A Quick, Fun Project

I have a friend who recently realized her dream of owning an RV. What fun!

 She sent me a text one day saying she'd seen this cute saying:

"RV There Yet?"

I instantly knew I wanted to make her a sign with that saying on it.

To begin, I pulled out some old fence pickets and got busy. A few hours later and ta da!

a cute RV sign:



I had so much fun with hers, I am making a second one:

It is put together and ready to paint. This one will get a different color and saying. It too, will go to someone who has just recently bought their RV!

 Neither know I am doing this...well, until they read this post. LOL. So surprise!! I hope you like your signs. Sorry, Denise, you'll have to wait to see yours finished. :o)

I know they are all going to have a blast traveling in their RVs. Let the good times roll, y'all!

:o)

  4. Cecilia ! We use that saying, too ! We got an RV when mom and dad left us. They used to travel in their RV and when we were free to do the same, we got one. We don't get away very much, but we try to use it every year. So far, multiple trips to Santa Fe, a small trip to a renaissance festival here in Texas, and all the way to Michigan to meet my birth family. Let me know when you start selling your signs. They are the cutest ! (hint hint... my birthday's in August!) tee hee ! Just kidding. sort of. SNORK!

    1. Oh Patty! You're so funny. :) but seriously, if you really want one, email me. I've had a lot of fun making these. My husband thinks a tent is the only way to go so I am left out of the RV experience. Oh well. We now have the farm!
      What Renaissance fair did you go to?

    1. Thanks, Karen! I really do enjoy things like this...I mean I love the complicated oil pAinting but it's nice to have something that goes quickly. I did wood stuff long before I jumped into painting so this is like getting back to my roots. Lol

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.



 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
