Holding onto a memory!

I have to thank my mom for this whole project!!!! These bar stools had been my grandmother's (her mom's) and she just didn't want to get rid of them.....but they didn't exactly fit her style for inside the house. SOOOO she came up with a GREAT idea!!!

She removed the bar stool seat.....and placed a pot for planing in it! LOVE THAT!

When I moved into my home, she gave me one of them in hopes that I would learn how to take care of plants. (NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN MOM!) This past weekend I decided to give it a coat of fresh paint and make it fit in with my style a bit more. LOVE how it turned out! Heck, I might even water this plant. (of course I will have to set a daily alarm on my phone to remind me)

She also gave me an old wooden chair with a plant in it as well... It was painted white by my grandmother over 25 years ago.....and it has seen better days. I will show pictures after I freshen it up with a new coat of paint!

Cute! I've never seen a Halloween countdown calendar, but how PERFECT for those of us that steal our children's candy! Mine are a little old for trick or treating, so guess I'll count down to the day when I buy myself a treat! Your pillows are up on my blog. Come take a look!
