Rustic Love Sign

Well it has been a busy few weeks around here lately getting ready for upcoming shows. I will be at a participating vendor this week for Saturday's Vintage Vibe in downtown Bartow. One finished project is a sign made from old fence boards.

A few weeks back a neighbor was replacing a fence so naturally Mike went to gather up most of the old one from the curb. Lucky Us!! It was aged, grayed and beautiful.

I used some of it to make a few signs by combining the fence and junk.

This one is my favorite so far and perfect for Valentines Day.

Mike cut some hearts from scrap corrugated rusty metal and then I added junky elements for the word LOVE. 

I liked the little bit of red in the door knob so we added a few red hearts as well.

For the rest of the letters we used a ruler from a flea market for the "L", some bike chain formed the "V" and a piece of scroll formed a perfect "E".

I left the top of the fence boards just like we found them. A little broken and uneven but they work perfectly in this project.

The little red bench was also found by a different curb and was part of a picnic table set. 

It was broken on one leg but we just re-bolted it and now it is the perfect red chippy bench.

The sign does have a hanger on the back to place on a wall, but I like it propped with my bench.

Thanks for stopping by,

The Color Run - Orlando

Happy New Year!! I hope everyone is having a great start so far. Projects seem to be taking a long time to complete lately, maybe because I've been having to much FUN!

Part of my New Year Resolution was to get back in shape and be a little more health conscious with diet and exercise. I didn't really get starting until this weekend but I think NOT starting on Jan.1 is working for my benefit.

Have you heard of The Happiest 5K On The Planet? Otherwise known as The Color Run.

Last weekend it was in Orlando and me and my daughters participated.
Let me tell you this was an awesome, fun event.
Perfect way to get my butt in gear for the New Year.

The whole concept is to wear white and get colored as you run the course.

The Runnercorn starts the 5K.

Who's ready to run and get colored??

Ready, Set, Go!!

As you progress you hit the color stations.
This is where the real fun begins.
First up PINK!

Keep on going to the next color.

Beautiful blue was next.

Glasses are a must.

This nice police officer even got a little color and he took everyone's picture to.

Of course by now it has turned into a COLOR WALK, but we got one more color to get to, Purple.

Around one corner to the finish line.

When you cross the finish they give you a headband and another packet of color for the after party.

It was a great morning with the girls, so much fun.

Color Me Maybe? Color Us Yes!

If you are looking for a fun activity for the whole family this is a great one.

There were people of all ages,shapes and sizes. That's what made it so much fun, no pressure on your time or abilities just get to the end and celebrate. 

To see if the run will be in your area this year or for more information go here.

As for me I have continued with walking the past few days and feel better already.

Health and Happiness to you for 2014.

Thanks for stopping by,
