I’m telling you folks, this post has it all! Crafts! Home repairs! Shopping! Travel! Innocent children! Food! All you want out of a blog! And it includes my tribute to Le Clown’s weekend blog challenge that I didn’t get to during the weekend.
I went shopping at my favorite antique mall STARS.
While at STARS, I saw many rustic painted signs for home and garden. They cost money and I’m trying to save my pennies or at the very least spend them on things I actually NEED. So I didn’t buy one of those cute rustic signs, I did this!
I went to Michael’s (craft store) and bought two little bottles of Martha Stewart spring green craft paint and a set of stencils. I went home and dragged the wood sign or fence or whatever it was up onto my deck and prepped it for being crafted.
In the garage, I found the white paint that had been used for the trim in my bathroom and that’s wood so I figured it would work.
Presto! For much less than the $45 I would have spent at STARS for a garden sign, I made my own!
First project done. I move onto the next. I have been waiting to do this project until I had a power screwdriver but
screw forget that, I decided to borrow one from my neighbor. My neighbor told me that I could just tap the screws in with a hammer and use a regular screwdriver. I think his garage is really messy and he wanted me to go away.
I went back and tapped those screws and screwed them all by myself! And this is what resulted:
Oh and then,
On Sunday, Derwood and I went for a drive to look at covered bridges in Cottage Grove, Oregon….because we are precious like that.
We saw two boys fishing at one of the bridges and it was so Tom and Huck sweet!
and here is a covered bridge:
We drove on through the countryside and found a park for a picnic.
Here is the food portion of the blog.
And we brought Mudd with us!
So it is clear that this post has everything that WordPress looks for in a post to Freshly Press: arts and crafts project with how-tos, do it yourself home improvement, Le Clown, travelogue, food, photos, children, animals.
They should fucking Freshly Press the shit out of this.
