Sign, sign everywhere a sign ♪♫♪

I decided I better pop in here quick before you all thought I dropped off the face of the earth.
 I have been a busy beaver as of late. I have LOVED making these large signs.
Believe stands five feet tall, Peace is 4 feet tall and Joy is approx. 28 inches high or so.
I still have to touch up the ends of the JOY sign with white paint, but I will get
to that eventually. Now I am on the hunt for more old barn wood...the hunt that is never-ending
for all the things I want to create. :)

This has been a project of mine for a few weeks and it is finally done!

I L.O.V.E. it!!

Hubby did a lot of the work , but shh...:)

I hope to get it all decorated and do a post on it soon. It is the new vanity on our back porch.
Kicked the old ugly one to the curb. It really WAS ugly! I didn't realize HOW ugly
until we actually took it out. "shudder"

Do you recognize the wooden piece that we put the sink in? It is the "potting table" that hubby
 and I made this summer. I had a revelation one day to use it for this and hubs thought it
was a great idea! Love it when we agree! SMILE

It has been downright FRIGID in Michigan this week and this soup was on the menu!
Creamless Cauliflower Soup
They say that the US shattered over 100 records {or was that 1000?} in weather this year.

UGH! I don't like breaking a 150 year old records at this time of year!! No thanks, but we take
 what we get right? For some reason God must think we need this bitter cold so I am trying to
take it in stride. It will be in the 50's this weekend so you know what I am doing!


Christmas decor to be put up outside!

I made this yummy recipe of cauliflower soup that we watched being whipped up on America's
Test Kitchen from the warmth of our living room. I did google and find it on another site so
you can click here to get the recipe.

As usual I didn't have some of the ingredients so I winged it. I didn't have the chives, leek
or sherry vinegar, but it was still very tasty to me. My hubby added cheese to his and loved
it. He is a cheese man for sure. The butter drizzle was supposed to be browned, but obviously
I didn't get it browned. lol.

Do you have your Christmas shopping started? ME?? Barely. It gets harder every year.
I am thinking of opting out...:)

Your signs are wonderful. Lovely whitewashed weathered wood, just what I love. Shopping? Not yet.

Your signs are so pretty and the soup looks good. We did not get snow, but freezing temperatures.

Those signs are just wonderful. Great job on them. Things are moving way too fast towards Christmas already for me. Looks like you have a good start on things there.
That soup looks delicious! xo Diana

Your signs are beautiful, Sandi. My sister has been making me a few this year. I had one for FALL and now I have a tree shaped one that says FOR UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN. I have them outside.
