AND IT'S ABOUT TIME - SHEESH!
It took me a looong time after the holidays, to even think about my porch - I'm not even sure why.
Usually my porch is a favorite thing of mine to do, but I felt overwhelmed and under motivated :/
Several weeks ago, some ideas finally floated into my head - and boy was I grateful!
I needed to get outside and DO something, and golly, it was a fun project (thank you John for helping!)
My main mantra was: Color, Texture, and Levels.
So this is what I came up with - - -
(and a new gnome... I mean a gnew gnome)
