Happy Wednesday, everyone!!
In my last post, I shared about the mysterious black plugs that I tripped over and wanted to somehow disguise!
So many of you offered your kind concern and ideas too, all greatly appreciated!!
I am feeling back to normal and only have a few bruises left which will fade in time!!!
Here is my solution!!
A rustic bench angled just right, filled with pumpkins and mums!
A small pile of stones hides one plug and a very big boulder was moved in place to help balance the bench! The boulder was in the front part of our yard and is so heavy that Jeff actually had to roll it, end over end, to get it in place!! What a manly man he is!!!
I left a bit of the other plug visible so you could still see it,
but it is covered up pretty well by those stones!
I'm really pleased with the way it all came together and no longer have to worry about those nasty plugs, which I found out are used for drainage, so they really are important, even though I don't like them very much!!!
I'm just so happy they are hidden from view!!
What do you think??
As I was getting ready to work on this post, I noticed that it will be number 200 for me!!!
It seemed like the perfect time for me have a Giveaway, to show my appreciation to you for visiting my blog, and sharing in my journey!
Since the Christmas season will soon be upon us, I decided to offer
a Christmas stocking to you!
I made this from some old ticking, and it is filled with dried rose hips, large cinnamon sticks, dried twigs, faux greens, and a stuffed paper Santa! This is a Kentucky Primitives design and I just love mine so I hope you will enjoy owning one, too!!
The stocking is 21 inches long, including the hanger!
It also has a paper tag pinned to the front, vintage tinsel garland and rusty bells hand stitched to the top and a rusty wire for hanging!!!
If you would like to be entered, please leave a comment and share a special Christmas Stocking memory with me
on this post!
I will chose the winner on Wednesday, November 2nd!
Please be sure to include your email address with your comment so that I can contact you if you win!!!
Even though blogging may not be as popular as it once was, it has been such a joy for me and one I hope to continue! When I think of all the many special friends I have met along the way, my heart is glad and I feel truly blessed!!!!
Wishing you a day filled with Happy Thoughts and Warm Smiles, my friends~
