Just some general showing off....

I won an awesome prize and it came today so I have to tell you about it! Remember my introduction to houzz.com? Do you know Rhoda from Southern Hospitality? She's been featured here before. She's so talented. She has a lovely home and a great blog full of our favorite topic - DIY and tutorials. I get a lot of inspiration from her (like framing my mirror). Well, she was featured on houzz.com (how exciting!). And there was a giveaway sponsored by Hudson Goods (love that store and blog!). The prize is just perfect for my vintage/barn space. Any of their items (ALL of the goods at Hudson Goods would be perfect for my space - I can dream, right? lol).

I won this!

Before: (if you haven't seen it, click here for before & afters of my barn patio...huge transformation!)

I love it here:


Isn't it a perfect accessory?

A few precious free hours on a Friday afternoon. I'm soaking up the "doing nothing and loving it". :)

My pumpkins and crystal look so pretty and sparkly in the sun light today. :)


I love fall decorating. Mums are one of my favorites for fall.

I'm working on another project for the Fall Festival! I can't wait to show you! I hope you'll join me on Monday!
And don't forget - you have a week to participate in the scavenger hunt!
You could be the proud owner of these! I see lots of DIY projects in your future!
Enjoy the day!

Well done! I love the clock! I wanted to let you know that for some reason I haven't been able to send e mails out- So I can send my before and after photos to you ..is there a way to get them to you otherwise? I am not computer techy sorry..I always have to embaress myself and ask probly silly ?? but, I dont know much and am learning because of sweet people who are teaching me as I go! If you can let me know that would be great I have never been able to send an email..it always say "because of some error" it wont let me! Grr so frustrating!Thanks for any advice you might have! And again congrats on that great clock!
