House update

Well my Mom has come and gone but it was a really awesome visit. Thanks Mom! If felt like we were go, go, going the whole weekend but it felt really great.

Sunday we stopped at my favorite vintage store and made out like bandits! Mom got me this super cute square table cloth, ,

Here is a before and after of our fireplace paint experiment....

I think I like not having it white, but I'm not sure we picked the right shades of paint. I think I want an even darker brown and a more gray khaki on the bottom. I'm leaving it for now though, need to do other projects.

Monday we did a TON of yard work. Our yard was so SOOOO overgrown. It looks so much lighter, brighter and more open. =) Andrew and I are going to try and work on it some more this weekend. He is determined to have a lush, green lawn before his parents visit in August.

Thanks for coming to visit Mom and thanks for all the goodies. I had a great time and I can't wait to see you again in a few weeks!

The fireplace looks very buttery in the picture! Definitely needs another color. Post pictures of the garden as it progresses.
