No, We Don't Live in Kansas

I just thought it was a sweet sentiment.

My soffits had been bare for over a year.
I changed that 10 minutes before dinner Saturday night.
I was in the laundry room folding a quick load.
Saw the barn wood resting in the corner.
Measured the barn wood.
Measured the soffit.
Got out the paints.
Sometimes you have to grab inspiration right when it hits.

We had this piece resting on the windowsill for a long time.
I missed it.
The barn wood is from Vermont.

I think I like it here.


  1. love it there too Julie. Sometimes I think that I over-think. I love that you just did it!!

  2. You spontaneous ingenious girl you! Very cute! Great idea too. I like the sign there. Nice contrast against the white.

  3. I love that:O) And def a good place for it:O)

  4. So great and so very very true.

  5. Catching up today. Love the sign. Wish I had two drops of your creativity. And summer? Ain't all it's cracked up to be.

  6. I like it there too. I love when a great idea strikes.

  7. Things often work out the best when one doesn't over think them. It certainly was the case here. Looks great! x Sharon
