I love green doors , so I wish I could paint our front door green. I don't think I would go with anything bright, but the the grey paint has a green undertone so it would have to be different enough that it didn't blend in with the brick. I don't think it would ever get past the boss (E is the outside boss, I'm the inside boss), but I do think I could get him to let me paint the back door green.
Yep when you open our front door there is an even cuter dog waiting to jump on you.
I guess for now I will just live with my green wreath.

I love this fabric by Jennifer Paganelli. She is one of my favs and I think we used this fabric in my sister's room at my parents house. It is super soft. Priced at $3.98 yd major deal usually $8.98 a yard
Then we have this crazy deal on some Amy Butler 54" fabric. It is only $4.98 a yard, reg $15.98. Crazy good deals
Amy Butler fabric again.
There are tons of Joel Dewberry fabrics on sale, too many to list but check them out. All 54" width and $4.98 a yard, reg $15.98 a yard! People do you understand what a deal that is, buy it just because it is so cheap.
Robert Kaufman fabric. Love the little birdies.

And right about now you are probably thinking that I am crazy because my dining room table looks like a picnic table, well because it is a picnic table. I love the mix of rustic with the traditional lines of my china cabinet and the dressiness of the chairs, it's just my style.
So I had to come up with another plan that was easier. Much to Eric's pure joy my dad volunteered to make the table and he made the it over the weekend much to my pure joy.
I am still in charge of finishing the table. I was originally going to paint the whole thing, but for durability I'm not going to paint the top. So then I was going to stain the top and paint the base, but now I am sort of wanting to stain the whole thing. What would you do?
Thanks Daddy, love it!
EDIT 3/2010 - My dining room is "finished", click here to see how the table turned out!

Don't worry they brought their parents.
And per Brooks' request we had another party Sunday night, the weather was so nice we couldn't resist. But we had to spice things up so we had glow stick bracelets and necklaces!
Yesterday when we came home from lunch, our company was gone, the house was so quiet and everything was in its place. Until I looked in the plant and had a reminder that this one was here.

I know it is a little 4th of July, but it is still July. I thought it would be easy to recreate since it is July, but it has been so hard to find red and white items.

Instead they included this fabric
I don't really know why you would need a fabric with women exercising on it unless you were going to make a gym bag or a yoga matt carrier? even then I wouldn't use this fabric.
The good thing about fabric.com, besides free shipping on orders over $35, free returns, and they offer samples, is that if they mess up your order they let you keep that fabric, not sure what they would do if it was multiple yards that was sent in error. But I wish they had accidentally sent me this fabric instead
I did order a sample of this fabric, it is more blue than gray in person
or this Joel Dewberry, I think his Deer Valley line is so cool as always I am always wishing for more Heather Bailey fabric. She actually has a cute print that would work for boys
I love the aqua/red combo that is popping up everywhere these days. Click here to see all of Heather's awesomeness, and see if you can only pick 2 favorites
And you can never leave out Amy Butler
too many good ones to choose from
They also have these 60" width adorable knits if you are expecting, you could make a ton of little sleep sacks for the little one. I know plenty of people that are expecting, but none know the sex yet but I may just buy a yard of each. Yes I need some more fabric.

and I will serve our beverage out of this
and since Eric can't have dairy we will make his special and use this dish
but we will load all of the cheese onto ours and cook it in these dishes
leftovers, well why don't you take them home in these refrigerator Pyrex dishes
