Really enjoy my stress free days now that I have stopped working.

I worked for a while in my garage today, and also out in my yard trimming and taking care of all my plants and flowers.  My daisies are in bloom!

IMG_0031[1]I shared my project of updating my “crooked little back porch” a couple of weeks ago, but never took it to completion, so I thought today I would finish.

This is the photo of the area that needed something else!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI moved an old small table and chairs from my barn to the porch, touched up with some white paint, and as you can see it works!

IMG_0040[1]Added some bright green pillows which helped to pull all the colors together.

IMG_0041[1]So very pleased with the entire update.

I love the time I spend on my porch, it is my peace and quiet place.

Added some other little things too!

Found this colorful plate at Pier One on the sale table.  It added a special touch to my small table between our chairs.

Below you can see that I made some coasters from clay pot saucers.  Hobby Lobby offers 6 for $2.99, but I used my 40% off coupon, for an additional $1.20 off!  I used hot glue to add some cork to the inside, that was it!  The terracotta matches the brick.

These coasters would make a great “thank you” gift for the hostess of an outdoor gathering.

Just one more thing to share, this silly, but useful watering jug.  I made it from an empty jug that held spring water.  I loved the blue handle and didn’t want to just pitch it!  All I needed to do was to poke holes in the lid with a nail and hammer.

Fun to put together with very little money, and using things I already had.

I wish peaceful days to all of you!

See ya tomorrow!
