I wanna be like 9 by Design!

I ADORE Bob and Courtny's style! Edgy, fun, sophisticated and funky! I LOVE that they push the envelope! I am adopting more of that philosophy and being true to my design style at my shop. If you haven't seen the show, check it out here http://www.bravotv.com/9-by-design. In the season finale on Tuesday they had a grapevine wreath that had a peace sign in the center - it was so awesome! (I tried to find a pic but no luck) The moment I saw it I KNEW I had to try my hand at one...so off to Goodwill I went in search of CHEAP grapevine wreaths...

Then I got my tools ready....

Disassembled the larger thin wreath for my "parts"

BUT then I needed a straight stick....hmmmm, where can I find one of those? My dead rose bush of course!
aahhh, the vision coming to fruition.....
This is the day I wish I had a white door.....then you could see the wreath so much better....

As we all know one project leads to another.....

My Porch BEFORE.....
AFTER....implementing my new garage sale find (I didn't take the hook off the basket cuz I am not sure it's staying there and if it does I will re-plant in a terracotta pot that I have)


I want y'all to know that use what you have also works in the garden....

I had these urns with 1/2 dead ferns, so I split the living ferns between the two pots dug up some Rumex (the green and red veined "spike") and some snapdragons that were growing katewompus and VIOLA! I have 2 cute free planters!

I have linked up here.....Join us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up party!

and here...

Stop by and check out more FAB ideas!


STAY TUNED....COME BACK MONDAY to see what I am GIVING away! It involves yellow and white and the NEW FAVE pattern of blog readers!
