Just as soon as St. Patrick’s Day was over (ie. first thing in the AM on 3/18), I took down the shamrock and hung the cross.
It’s really so lovely in person. She offers it in a few different colors, but I thought the tan perfectly accented the house.
You can get the cross with a colorful flower in the center, but I opted for the full burlap bow.
I was telling Mother last weekend that my pansies looked pathetic and moaning and groaning about my inability to consistently have good looking pots when she suggested I go with ferns this year. I’m SO glad I did for a number of reasons. Not only were they super easy to just plop in the pots, but their size and height look great from the street. I’m set pretty far back and up a pretty big hill so they are really quite perfect here. I picked up the chevron burlap pre-made bows for the dogs from Michael’s.
Now, are you ready for a chuckle? I did this entire photo shoot before I realized Honey had photo bombed me. I retook the pics, but had to share at least one with y’all…
I moved the darling screen bunny (fondly known as Peter Burlap Tail) to the garage entry door this year. He looks precious there! I didn’t get a photo because by the time I thought about doing so our lovely sunny spring weather turned to cold rain. boooooo!
We’ve got ten thousand house projects on the list for the weekend. Don’t get excited though… it’s drudgery work like fixing a shutter, prepping the garden, pulling weeds, tossing the torn up rug in our bedroom, replacing light bulbs and stuff like that. Regardless, I’ll be happy to get it all done and crossed off.
Happy FriYAY, y’all!
