After hanging the picture, the area to the left looked very, very blank. Off I went to the barn to do a bit of "shopping." I found an old Home Interior shelf and headed to the bedroom to retrieve a vase that I've had for a gazillion years and dearly love. The vase needed something in it so I wacked a few branches off one of my trees. That will do until I find something more permanent.
The crucifix on the right is a Capodimonte imported from Italy. I also purchased one for our church kitchen and classroom area that didn't have one.
Next hubby and I slapped the stain on the back deck. It has gotten super cold very early this year and I'm hoping a slight warm up next week will allow me to stain the front deck before the snow flies.
This time we used a roller instead of a brush and it was waaaaaaaaaaaay easier than a brush. He back brushed with a broom while I slopped the roller around. It only took 1 1/2 hours, which included removing the furniture. I had already taken off the potted plants several days earlier when I cleaned the wood.Gina at Shabby Chic Cottage is doing on her challenge.
