Around the House...

I haven't been working on much lately except for trying to spruce up my front porch.

I am putting on new coats of black spray paint and wood stain

Painted the pots with Cherry Red from Krylon
On a side note, my mail box is also getting a make over since it was assaulted a week ago. We are getting a nice wood post with a black box.

Fashion Smashion

I was at WalMart yesterday and noticed a section of the women's clothing with a seriously cute new line. I think the brand is Bella Bird. It is DownEastesque, only a little cheaper of a price.

$16 Ruffle Shirt

$19 Lace Skirt

$22 Dresses
**WalMart is not compensating me for the post, although I am opened to that *wink*

Craft Fail?

With my first Subway Art project under way, I can say with perfect confidence that it is an utter disaster. The vinyl was difficult to work with and the lines are a mess. See for yourself--

Here is another shot just in case you didn't catch all of the crazy lines--
