Have you taken Z's 15 minute timer challenge this week? I have and can I say, it is liberating... I mean she said it would be, and while I do trust her explicitly, what can I get done in 15 minutes?
See this fabulous pink bread box full of dead flowers?
It used to be full of junk in my kitchen.
what a waste.
So I did it, I set my timer and cleaned it out! I was in a purging mood and so those two phone adapters that nobody could remember exactly what phones they ever went to...
Along with the umpteen papers, and scraps, and really just plain junk, that at one time or another I had convinced myself that if I threw the junk away then what would happen to the axis of the universe?
Would everything come tumbling down?
Now look at it on my cleaned up front porch!
remember that house-tending I had to get to?
This porch was desperate for it.
Seriously, I picked up no less than 4 nerf weapons from this thing.
Max and his army have been banned from the front porch,
I'm sure the mail lady will thank me ;)
Blogland is so inspiring and I just love that. I mean I think I am more inspired everyday!
Yesterday Alicia put a challenge out there for us to turn our cameras off of auto.
I don't have a big fancy schmancy camera, I have a canon powershot. I love it and not that I think I am much of a photographer but I am really in love with my powershot now that it is set on Manual!
I was doing the happy dance as I started taking pictures, I would take one on manual and then one on auto, and I couldn't believe the difference.
maybe it's just me but the pictures look so much more crisp and clean!
I am a happy girl!
Blogland is a wonderland, a wealth of inspiration.
Did you know about dropcloth rosettes before the country of blogland existed?
Did you care about taking pictures of your clean porch and new spring wreath before you blogged?
When these buckets get filled with beautiful plants I will show you them again, promise!
I can't wait to put a beautiful little garden in the pink box.
And I can't wait to take more pictures.
This porch is next.
sheets uhum curtains,
New cushion covers out of dropcloth or something equally fabulous is in the works.
Thanks to all of you who stop by and inspire me.
I thought I would share a picture of this sweet little nerf mess maker and budding artist with his newest creation and his new glasses.
Notice the details, the berry in the birds mouth and the barbed wire fence! love that!
See how cute this face is? This is why, even though he is banned from the front porch, I will still share the side porch with him!
