Look what I have completed!

Welcome my precious blogger friends!  I want to show you a couple of projects that are complete.  Since it is 14 days until my Doug will be home I thought I would share a few of them.  First, I have always wanted a red door.  I got so many ideas from blogs I visited, I got the courage....said it was only paint and did it!  The WELCOME was bought on etsy.  It took me forever to decide on the shade of red but this one worked out great.

 Last year I saw the most beautiful wreath hanger. The owner of the wreath holder told me where she got it.   I loved it.  While I could not find one like hers it lead me on a journey finding beautiful wreath hangers.  I got this one on ebay.  I love visiting the QVC bulletin boards and the wonderful folks over there kept talking about the pine cone wreath.  Being a southern girl, with pine trees everywhere I thought these folks are nuts.  But they kept talking about them so I ordered one and am so glad I did!  It has battery operated lights that are on a timer. 
 This is one of my treasures.  Can you believe Doug bought me this swing on our first date?  We went to a craft show and I fell in love with it.  I weave seasonal items through the chain with battery operated lights woven through it also.  You can see Josh's tail and butt in this photo.  LOL.  She is a ham.  The birdcage on the storage box was on a table scape a few weeks ago.  It has a flame less candle and some sunflowers.
 You can't see it but the twigs in the milk can have lights on them.  I admit my picture taking leaves much to be desired but hopefully you get the jest of it.
Thank you so much for stopping in.  I am still recuperating and very slow.  I always treasure your comments.



  1. Hi Jeanette

    Glad you are feeling a little better.
    I love your door colour and message, and the wreath hanger is fantastic - nothing like that in the UK :o( Though I have a similar wreath without the lights.
    Love that your swing is so romantic, and the porch is really welcoming.
    Not long now until you are re-united with your beloved :o)
    Very best wishes to you both.

  2. Jeanette...your door and perfect and the porch so welcoming...what a homecoming it will be :)


  3. Your porch is wonderful. A swing on a first wonder you kept him! I love the pinecone wreath...and the red door!

  4. Jeanette,
    Your porch is to die for... I can imagine days spent outside on the swing reading a good book, or evenings spent swinging, enjoying the nights sky. I love the photo you took of the sunlight streaming across the green porch floor. How beautiful!
    Red door... love it, way to take the leap!
    I pray that you are feeling better my friend, hug the pups for me!

  5. Love your porch, Jeanette! This is the time of year when I would really like one myself. The door looks great! I love the red you chose. I just painted mine black this weekend. I'm also thinking about a vinyl but not sure what.

  6. hi, I'm visitin' for the first time via Far Above Rubies :)

    and I love a Red Door (mine is red too :)

  7. I have a couple red doors on my house and I love them. I just wish we had a little more privacy since they have windows in them. Love the color though.

    A porch swing on your first date? How romantic is that!?
