Not Pink Icing that you can eat...but Pink Icing On The Cake by LeAnn.
LeAnn's blog is one of my absolute favs! I just adore everything about her. So the other day LeAnn had been 'tweaking' the Porch as she called it.LOL. i loved it sooo much and she unknowingly inspired me to get out in the sunshine yesterday and 'Tweak My Porch' as well. My poor ole porch...it suffers from neglect because i am always doing up things inside the house instead. Plus my Dad and Sam are constantly trashing my porch so much that i tend to throw my arms up in defeat.
BUT not on this day!Poor porch looking so unloved and basically very squiffy (yep its a word ok).
First things first...take everything off the porch and put it on the lawn to get washed, painted etc etc
Sam said "Are we having a Garage sale Mummy?" Me...sell my chairs?? i dont think so sweetie.
While everythings drying (yep i washed it all, even the concrete) lets play hopskotch up the driveway.
And bring Georgie outside to play in the garden...
Oooh what was that? "I tawt i taw a Lizard."
I let the lizard go...i needed to roll in that dirt so badly.
Ok isnt my Burgandy Iceberg Rose fantastic!
TWEAKING OVER and things are much prettier on the Porch. We even ducked up to the Nursery and bought some punnets of Primulas. Sam and i planted them together. He is definately going to inherit my green thumbs :)
Here they are all ready to thrive in my freshly painted, CANDY STRIPED planter! i just love it.
The chairs got a bit of a tweak too. A fresh coat of paint and some pink fabric on my favourite shabby green chair. This is the sunniest and sweetest corner to sit. Sams chair is right there next to mine.
A comfy and pretty cushion for the wicker chair (Dads cat says Thanks..)
I looooove my wrought iron setting. Ideally id love it in the front garden but i worry someone will pinch it.
I cant wait till the weather is warm again and we can start painting the outside of the house (bye bye brown guttering). Im thinking white with very pale pink trim work.
Oh and i need to do a sign for the house too. Our home is called FAIRY FLOSS COTTAGE (thats cotton candy to you O.S gals)...can you guess why??? *wink*
hmm could it have something to do with all the pink ..maybe....
Oh todays the last day to sign up for My Swap ! So hop to it if you havent already! Thanks to all the girls who have already signed up. I'll be emailing you your partner very soon!
Have a gorgeous weekend ahead and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all of you for Sunday. I hope you have a fun and beautiful day with your loved ones. Oh and breakfast in bed of course! That goes without saying :)
