Spring is here!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Weekend! We have been working on some more house projects. I know total shocker! Amor built me an L-shaped bench seating area with storage. After much debate on which fabric to pick, We went with this super colorful, whimsical lemur pattern and two other complementary patterns.
I was able to snag some 5” foam from the guys at The Army Navy Store before they closed. They are currently in the process of moving from their old downtown location where they have been since the 40s to Laurens Rd right near Wilsons. Who knew foam was so ridiculously expensive! But the idea was in my head now and it had to be done. Plus Amor had already made the bench…..oooppppsss, but it is nice foam and was custom cut to exactly what I need.
My friend Jackie from The Owlet Boutique, a former Greenville Derby Dame, super adorable vintage girl, and mom of 3 took on the sewing project for me. My sewing skills are dismal, plus I wanted to enjoy it this century. I will post a picture of the finished product. I am finally getting to use tiles I bought in Turkey in 1997 with the plans to make a table! Why did I think I needed that tile I have no idea but it is finally going to have a home! That has maybe been the most satisfying part of the new outdoor space. I have so many items I was thinking I would have to get rid of and we have managed to incorporate a lot of those pieces into the design. Hopefully, I will have everything done and can post a picture of the finished product next month.
Other things on “our” list - patio, new walkway/entrance, new bed, garden and add some more landscaping. LOL Poor Amor! Though my plan is to work on these things until the beginning of May and then enjoy the summer, no crazy projects. Maybe if I put that out there to everyone I will be reminded that I am not supposed to have any more projects for the summer. I am supposed to just enjoy the new space.
Anyone have any fun house projects or landscaping going on? Post some pictures on Raspberry Moon. I love seeing what people are doing and how they reuse or repurpose things. Maybe we should have a contest! Who has the most intriguing project they have worked on this year?
