First up on Saturday, Lindsay had an airsoft day here on our property. She planned it over a few months and even had some good friends come down from New York state to play. I think they played for about 7 hours, broken down into smaller games. Everyone had a really good time.
Meanwhile, I experimented with some chalk paint on a few barn stars that I had. This one had been red, and I painted it French Linen and then topped it with Old White. This photo is before waxing and distressing.
I used the same colors on this star but it had been a rusty star that used to live outside. I did a much more rustic treatment on it with the same colors but doing a dry brush with the Old White.
That was a lot of fun. I was also texting with my niece and showing her that on the day before Spring we were having snow showers!
Sunday evening we went to our sweet friend's Bridal Shower. We played the game where you use toilet paper to dress up a bride. Sarah was our 'bride' and Lindsay's brother in law was our 'ring bearer!'
Chelsea's (the bride to be) sister in law Emily was the organizer of this shower and she did an amazing job.
Really cute use of shutters to hang photos of Chelsea on and hearts with verses on them.
She also made all these cute ball decorations by punching the flowers out of scrap paper, and on some she wrapped them with twine. Very clever.
Chelsea's Mama, Becky, blogs at Hospitality Lane and I am certain there will be a post about this with lots of sweet photos, if you'd like to see more.
