More Country Living

I worship "Country Living" magazine. You can take the girl out of the country, you can't take the country out of the girl. If you have glanced at this magazine, then you know my style. Not "country cute" like my friend Amy says ( Fake country,tacky country), but antiques, and a style that suits my 1854 village farm house. So, when the neighbors gave us their old playhouse, I couldn't just plop it in the yead, I had to make it match it's surroundings and to look, well, perfect. So I spent a week working on it, but here it is, before and after. ( Well, my before shot has 1 coat of blue paint on it, it was grey with green trim to match my neighbors house).

That's so cute! Bet the girl's love it.

As for wedding stuff, we already know we can rent tables and chairs for cheap from Mark's employer. They are nice ones too.

You were close on the flowers - there will be daisies and hints of lavendar here and there.

We are building a gazebo (ACK!) to place in the backyard for the ceremony - we always wanted one anyway. And I have to get my dad talking to his contact about the big tent.

But I'll take up any and all offers for smaller tents we can scatter around. :)
