small things big impact - home sweet home

Day 9 - Home sweet home

Of course, while doing making small changes which make a big difference, I couldn't resist the new outdoor elves.

Firstly, I repainted the small shelf outside the house the same colour as the house and distressed it a bit to show the dark grey beneath.

Then I relocated the concrete HOME sign which I'd bought at Kmart a while ago from.

It looks really nice against the rusty tin cans, and its nice to see as you walk up to the steps.

Next I couldn't resist adding some 'junk' to large shelf under the kitchen window.

You know the definition of junk, right?

Anyway.... I added some junk to the shelf. Cause I love having interesting things to look at. And there were a ton of holes in the shelf back anyway... it was asking for it!

I love it when I visit someone's home and they have things to look at - little surprises in the garden, clever things on walls, interesting things in the house. Its like an adventure exploring homes like that.

I want that here, not just for visiting explorers, but for myself. It gives me joy to look at stuff I love, and having it out on walls or under shelves means its visible to enjoy, and not stored in boxes taking up space in the shed.

  1. Yep! This was tucked away in the recesses of my in-box also! I love all of the little things you have dangled from the shelf — especially the tiny blue bird and the wire heart. (You have such fun with wire!) We have a fairly protected patio that I hope to decorate this spring/summer. First, I must have a yard sale and get rid of many things so I can put other things in the garage where they belong!


I appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and leave feedback! Come back soon. :)
