This past weekend the Patriot and I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary. We had plans to go to out of town... but the weather squashed those plans-- right quick.... DRAT! So, we decided to spend our day antiquing at some of our favorite local shops. As much as I enjoy purchasing new trinkets for our home... I just L.O.V.E getting inspired when I see things I know that we can make ourselves for pennies. Unfortunately, I generally write the ideas down, but seldom get around to actually making them. (When I do sit down and work on something, it is almost always for one of the kiddos-- God Bless Em!). Since Grammie was already planning on having the kids while we were away, we decided to come home and actually work on a project together. Yupp, you heard me... my hubbs will actually craft with me! :) Whatta Guy! We made something very simple-- but it makes me happy. Just a wood board, covered in fabric... Purposed as a hanging flower holder. We've recently remodeled our upstairs bathroom (ok, maybe it was 2 years ago..but I've never added any decor. So, this project got the ball rolling! We even put up a toilet paper holder and hand towel holder! Stop on by... our TP is now at arms reach!)
... I kid you not... This was in the shop for almost $40. I had bought the flower sprig for $6 that day-- but, other than that.. I had everything else here at home. I have several other flowers I could have stuck in there so, this literally cost me $0 to make.
We just took a board, wrapped fabric around it and stapled it to the back... added a twine bow and PRESTO... done in less than 20 minutes.
Here it is on display in our bathroom.....
It doesn't take much to make me happy.. and I LOVE it!
It matches my Primitive/Colonial decor wonderfully.

I guess the rain isn't all that bad! We had an absolute wonderful day together. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful husband who works hard to support our family, is a wonderful daddy... but most of all loves JESUS and demonstrates that love to us daily. I LOVE HIM!
We even had a little fun in the back yard due to the rain...
Here's the next item on our To-Do List... A Primitive Stop Top Cover...
Have a Blessed day and ENJOY THE RAIN!!!
