I was trying to organize my week. My eyes landed on my little spring wreath and I thought “I need to update the door decor”. Then I thought “I need a great outdoors idea”. And it just came to me.
Then I headed back outside to sand. One thing worse than sanding in the sun is definitely unnecessary cleaning. Am I right ladies?!? 😉
Umm, yeah. I didn’t even think until just this second I could have actually used the stop watch function on said stop watch. Smarty.
This little project took all of 40 minutes and now I have a totally free (LOVE it!) and very versatile little rustic trough for our front door.
I am already imagining the possibilities. But I immediately knew I wanted to start with these beautiful yellow flowers that are now in bloom here.
I grabbed a canvas shopping bag and some clippers and hopped on our scooter – yep, still waiting on jeep parts! And headed out to snip some of these overwhelmingly gorgeous yellow blossoms I oogled at all weekend.
And. Couldn’t. Find. Any! Well, that’s not totally true. I climbed into the woods on the side of the road only to find that the tree was much larger up close than it appeared from the street. Darn it!
Low and behold, those suckers only bloom for a couple of days, and I didn’t even snap one pic. Ack! But my much-more-efficient-than-I-fellow-Curacao-blogger posted some awesome pics of the beautiful Kibrahacha blossoms here. I highly recommend you check them out.
But, I’m so happy with my new little free trough I’m quick to get over the fleeting yellow buds.
And this little project has definitely gotten me in The Great Outdoors mood. Are you planning to link up to the party? May 29th, 7am eastern time. The Last Tuesday in May, the one after the long Memorial Day weekend. Link up here and you’re linked up to 5 fab blogs.
So, now that you’re in The Great Outdoors mood too, other than flowers, what would you put in my trough?
Aaaaand now, back to organizing my week. We have a very fun, last-minute visitor coming to town. He is actually coming for work but I’m planning to monopolize as much friend time as possible. When you only invite 8 people to your wedding and you get to catch up with one of them after 2 years, work can wait, right!?!? Just don’t tell work that. 🙂
I am sharing at TDC.
