We Built That

 Thrifted: Both blouses! (stripes and bow)

Sorry for the late post today.  I'm usually on top of blogging on my days off, but hubs surprised me by coming home early (10am to be exact) to spend the day with me.  Oh a whole day together, what in the world should we do.  I guess we could take it easy, stay in our pj's all day, even watch a couple of movies - normal "day off" stuff.  But, we are not normal, nope, not us here.... Instead, we built a flower box!  A cute little box to fit right under our window at the front entrance. Pretty exciting!  And oh my goodness, is it cute!  I am so excited to get flowers in it and show ya'll (hopefully Thursday).  One of the best things too,  the project only cost us $7.00 - we built it out of the old wood we found at that barn!  

Re-use, Recycle, Up-cycle, Refinish, Refurbish- all that good stuff, we do it all!
