By Popular Demand..I Give You..Yellow Door!!

RARRR!!!

Okay...a few of you have expressed interest in seeing the incredibly "obnoxious" door as Brad  has so aptly named our door.


Here we have it in all its glory..one coat in!! I am happy to report I left it looking like this for a good day because..that's how I roll kids!

This is when he first expressed interest and a comedic take on how the door looked and how we should leave it like this to bug one specific nosy neighbor.

Before you feel sorry for said neighbor I'd like to let it be known that she is quite obnoxious. We are now nearly five years into living near her (but just far enough away, thank GOD!) where she notices everything, comments on it rudely "Why can't so and so take care of her damned plants? Is it that hard to water them?"  Direct quotes as she complained about various people. Anything and everything seems to bother her. She mows  her lawn twice per week at least..obsessively and has the lines down the lawn.  Last year after Brad's hip surgery, she walked down to our house and asked "What's going on down  here?" Me: "What do you mean?" She pointed at some weeds in my flower bed, I sighed, clearly annoyed and said "You know what...I just don't give  a damn about that right now. Brad just had surgery and can't move. We do home exercises daily and physical  therapy every other day. I've got bigger things going on."  I share this with you because A) she's an extreme irritant!! and B) to show that we don't just randomly try to irritate our neigbhors. If my yellow door annoys her,  that makes me kind happy!!



"I love it, Mommy! You have great  ideas!"




BAM!! In your face!! I just added a fall wreath to it today that I believe grounds it A BIT.



My baby. Watching all that painting really wore her out.









What I'm working on now. These. Was going to sell them in my Etsy shop, decided to instead do a wall of frames behind our couch. Pics coming soon..I think I love it!!







Before!

 
 
 
 
After!
 
 
 
At least it's not orange..YET.
 
I've had the same fly in our house for three days now. THREE! Any tips would be welcome! I've tried wine in a glass, some other "home remedies" thanks to Brad..but it's still living and harrassing and yes..we all know..pooping on everything..microscopically or not, it's gross. And rude!
 
Have a great extended weekend!
 
xoxo

LOVE it! Brad will get used to it...or not. Whatevs :) I would like to change our door, but hubs is reluctant. I will never live down the dayglo bedroom.

On another note--I didn't realize you have an Etsy shop. Headed to check it out now.

btw--Don King no more!

I like it... It's cheerful!
I've got to do our door but I'm waiting for cooler weather.
Hope your little fur ball got to relax after watching all that painting...one nap wasn't enough, I'm sure.
: )
Xxx,
TOT

J'adore! (is that right? I'm only half French...or not French at all, as the case may truthfully be.)

I do love it. Take THAT, nosy neighbor!

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess

I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an

aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog

writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
