Flowered, turquoise, pink and purple. Wouldn't this eliminate a little road rage in the world?
I am so thrilled to have started and finished a fun project for my yard. Yes folks, I'm back on my game. No, I'm not unburied from boxes and totes from the move. I'm just ignoring them to preserve my mental health.
My house sits too far back from the road to read an address. My mail lady wrote our address on the box with a chalk pencil. I started thinking if we had an emergency, it may be hard for people to find our home. A lot of rural homes choose the green and white or blue and white reflective street address sign. They hang it on or near their mailbox. I thought this was a good idea. I looked online and found a place that makes signs like these.
The company I found also offered purple as a color option. Hmmm, why not, right?
I got the sign and decided to do something a little more fun with it. I used an 8 foot 4 x4 and a couple of scraps of 2x4 to make this sign.
My kids helped with this project. On Mother's Day I cut the wood pieces and got out all of my quarts of paint. My kids picked the color scheme and painted the pieces of wood. They lost interest after that. I finished the work by adding some whimsical flowers and hooks to hang birdhouses from.
My only concern with my sign is that the teenage mailbox smashers may look at this cute, frilly sign as a challenge. It is mounted in concrete so they'd have to work at it. Lets hope nobody hurts it. Please Hammer don't hurt 'em!
I know I'm a week late. To all of the mama's in this world... I mean baby mama's, animal mama's and mama's to be. I hope you enjoyed your day. I have an award to mama of the year. I'd like to give it to her...
I know the pic is blurry. Larry caught this sweet mama racoon moving her baby very early in the morning. How sweet! I wished I'd seen it. What we won't do for our babies!
I'm happy to say I'll be having projects to offer up again. I've got a few works-in-progress I'll be finishing soon. I can't wait to share them with you.
