I'm only posting a portion of the photo not the whole thing, but you get the idea. Her entire face was covered. Crazy girl!
Speaking of pictures. I mentioned that Danielle brought over a few things for the wedding. Her entire car was filled with stuff and she's still got a couple car loads to bring. Here is what she brought yesterday.
Two big totes full of flowers and one small full of flowers, decorative lights, picks, and other odds and ends.
10 boxes of globe lights that are 30 feet long with 50 bulbs each. Along with 4 topiary jars, and behind the lights are 3 wooden signs.
Then she had three light up signs. Two hearts and this love sign.
Like I said before, she and I have been collecting things since well before she moved out of our home. My family thought I was completely nuts, but it's paying off big time right now. So, Danielle took my advice and has been picking up things that she finds on sale, on Facebook groups, and anywhere else she comes across something she likes. I did it too. Although not so much over the past year. All of the things I have are things I've had for a long time. More to come as we get closer and get back on track with the planning. I'm still moving slow from my fall. Although, I did manage to paint all the big letters and four of the letters to spell out the last name last night. Take a look.
The shepherd's hooks in the background just got a coat of spray paint too. I've had these hooks for years but the last time I used them was for Kyle's missionary homecoming. I only have nine of them and they have needed a coat of paint for a while now. I just couldn't decide on a color until now. To use them down my walkway I really need a total of ten or twelve, so I have been saving them. I believe I found them at Deseret Industries years ago. They will be perfect for outside our church building since you can only decorate on one side of the doors because there is a brick wall on the other side. An odd number of hooks won't really matter there. We picked the right church building. ~smile~smile~
Here are the last name letters. They are pretty long. I'm hoping the two fence pieces my sister in law has will be long enough so we don't have to go find another. If not, we'll figure something out. I'm liking the letters. We may decide to dress up the letters a little more with some kind of patterns like plaid or dots or a chevron pattern just to jazz them up a bit, but we are still trying to decide. Once we do decide and get them finished we will add a clear coat of varnish to seal them.
Notice that only the D and the S are not painted. The S belongs in my living room and I don't want it painted. The D is something Danielle bought. The unpainted letters just happen to be the brides current initials. This wasn't even something we planned. It just happened that was. I thought that was interesting.
