June in Review

Hello everyone! I thought I’d better do a post because this summer has been so busy as I’m sure it has been for you too.  So this is my June Review:
I redid my mantle by adding the topiaries  that I got on sale at TJMaxx or Marshall’s, I can never remember which one.LOL

I did get hardware at Lowes but didn’t get a picture yet of it, I might change the paint on the washstand because I’m just not sure yet if I like it.

Found the cutest little cowboy boots to use as planters for $2.00.

I also started a new collection…McCoy Pottery, so far I have 3 McCoy and 1 Cookson and 1 USA. I love the colors and even the texture of the pottery and it’s a lot of fun to collect!

I also took the time finally to paint this file thing a ma bob! I just slapped some paint on it and called it a day!

Of course what kept us all busy was the wedding of these two! They will be home tomorrow, they flew from Aruba to Chicago to go to two Pirate games out there. I can’t believe the wedding is over, I think I’m still recouping from it!

I also did some Ball Jars by first painting them with chalkboard paint then painting a color over that. They turned out great but one thing I noticed was that it was hard to sand, the color just didn’t want to come off so I think it was the chalkboard paint!

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend, thanks for stopping by today!

I love the color of the washstand and your mantle looks great. I have a similar window on my mantle too. Collecting some thing new is always fun.

You had quite a busy month. Weddings are so wonderful to be involved in and such a happy occasion. I know you must be thrilled and relieved at the same time. I love your mantle redo in the coastal theme, perfect for summer. I am also excited about your McCoy collection. I can't wait to see what you choose and find with that. Your blog layout looks great too!

Sounds like your June was packed full! Weddings are always wonderful. I like your mantel too! Oh, I'm so glad you popped in to my little Kiki blog. I've only had it a short while but thought this would be a good way to journal about our little trips.
Thank you so much for following me.
Be a sweetie,
