Spring Fling

Sad to see the Spring Fling come to an end.. but I have alot to share with all of you!

So... I did ALOT over spring break I have been holding out on... 
.
even with a broken foot I pressed on so I would have plenty to share with yall. 
.
I made a new arrangement for the front door.

and I bought some spring decor for the yard.
{my sister said this "cluster" is too much so I am considering dispersing some of these things around the front of the house.}
.
I did things like landscape the front and some of the back yard.
{bleeding heart on the left and begonia on the right}
{boxwood, creeping jenny, and english ivy}
.
Then the bulk of the work was done on the screened in porch.
.
YES finally after all this time, we are wrapping things up.
.
My father -in-law again came to our rescue and helped us put up our ceiling all by himself. 
.
He is genius I tell ya!! 
 {originally we wanted beadboard, but while we were at the store my FIL got a vision and I let him use his mad skills/know how and do his thing}
.
Must say it looks better than I could have EVER imagined!!!
.
Oh, yeah.... i almost forgot....
.
He also put up all the screen we needed replaced and got a good bit of the verticle slats up too!!
{still needed to be done is hang rest of slats, paint ceiling, install stairs and french doors... oh and please don't judge my half-painted porch, our spray gun has a mind of its own so the rest of this painting will be done with a brush... yes VERY TIME CONSUMING!!!!}
.
Can I have it finished by easter?? I sure hope so..
.
Also made some really cute placemats to add to the etsy shop.
.
Be back tomorrow with more spring decor...
.
and did I mention there are several new earrings for our Spring 11' collection.
.
Hop on over to our Facebook page to see.
