Fall Fluffing in the Front Yard

Worked on the yard in the front yesterday:

I'm still here... but I confess:

I've been a hooking fool and in between that working on a little
Kitchen updating and fluffing!  Not sure where August has disappeared to!

I'll be back with a real post soon....
until then:

I love that we named our old Victorian
27 years ago when we moved in.
She's lavender and she's on a hill....
'nuff said.

I hand painted the mailbox about 20 years ago:

And a couple of Summer's ago I made a sign for
the guest house:

But I wanted something more to
brand our Painted Lady!

Over the winter one of the teak benches in the boys shower collapsed.
So, I unscrewed the remaining legs and put aside
the slatted bench while I hatched a plan:

I got a "sample" pot of dark lavender paint and
had wooden letters cut at an online site.
A couple of coats of paint and some wood glue later:

Doesn't everyone dry their crafts on the 
recumbent bike in their home gym?

I love the way it looks hanging over the
porch steps:

Just this afternoon a sweet girl messaged
me that she could see the sign as she was driving by - 
totally made my day!
