tutu much?




I saw this swimsuit in Chasing Fireflies maybe two years ago and loved, loved, loved it? And because that catalog is just stupid expensive(but oh so lovely to look at) I'm sure it was 80 dollars or so. You think I'm exaggerating. I'm not. So while filling a prescription at Target this morning I had to wander and wait on the pharmacy, right? Right? In my wandering I strolled by the baby clothes. Wait. Could it be? Target knockoff strikes again. I snatched that little number off the rack so fast I'm sure the nice lady buying a swimsuit wardrobe for her 3 year old must have thought I was possessed. But it's mine now. MINE. And even though my husband thinks I spend money like it's water (I believe he said something about it flying not water but same difference right?) I'm pretty certain the 10 bucks was well worth that first shot(that's her new happy face). And she needed a swimsuit anyway. And tutu swimsuits are so practical and all.

So speaking about too much. Let's talk about my porch floor. I have that orange brick on the walls and you can see the different tile they used on the floor. I don't know who thought that matched? But wait. It gets better. The bottom part of the house is actually faced in cut stone. So yep, I've got 3 different colors(not a single one pretty) of brick/stone going on. WHOA! The house and orange brick will be painted in the next (few)year(s) or so but just not right now. Any ideas to make that floor more palatable in the meantime? I want to try and just paint it, I honestly don't see how it can look much worse. I'm hoping in the future that we can just pop those off but I want to wait on that until I know what I want to put down. Whatcha think? Bad idea?

How is it possible for one 57 year old woman to love so much? I want one. And I mean it this time.

Brown porch paint - the same color as the trim. I think you can buy a masonary primer. Then seal it. Long sisal runner on the painted tile. Would actually look quite good I think. Of course some type of furniture that actually stayed in place would help offset it some. ;-)

Can you use concrete stain on it? I want to stain concrete. I don't really want stained concrete, I'm just fascinated by the possibilities of it. And I love the tutu! And I want to come south!

another thought - garage gloor paint. It comes in colors that you sprinkle those flecks on. That might be fun! We want AuntieK to come south too, don't we!

You are a nut, but we love you for it...we'd all be down right boring if we didn't dream & get a crazy idea every now & then!
Can't believe that mouth full of teeth on JuJu:)
As far as brick/floor ideas, I'll email you...it'll be easier!
