Lord help me, I've discovered Paint Pens.


Remember this post about this site and my yearning to do the same thing? Well, i finally tied the children up found some free time, and ta-dah.....



and here's the dilemma - to bench or not to bench... is it too crowded...too forced? It needs some plants. A lot of plants. Hmmm. And that pillow has to go back to my couch. I"m not putting a $50 Pottery Barn pillow on the porch for Florida summer weather to ruin. I don' t know guys, what do you think?



I see porches like Karla's and i think it works...but then i always think that about other people's houses and never think it works for me...isn't this sweet? (makes me want to carve a pumpkin, even in 90 degree heat today).

I like it very much!

I like it! Does the bench go all the way to the door? If it does, maybe find a shorter one. If it doesn't, maybe put a tall tree or something there. Either way, it looks much better than my front door. haha!

I love the numbers - have it on my front door, too. I'm not much help with the bench - good luck.

paint pens! awesome! The bench looks great and would look even better with the aforementioned plants.

The numbers look great, i'd go with out the bench for more room, but would add lots of plants, etc to jazz it up...looks good though!

I love the numbers. And you have a gorgeous entryway. I am coveting it! You are going to have fun accesorizing it for fall.

You did this with a paint pen!?! I love it. And I do like the bench too!

Hehe, a twin post would be fun-wonder what other similarities we have?
