I'm at the half way point of my 10 in 10 Challenge



Old drapery hardware is gone. Walls are patched and all those paint sample colors have been painted over ..



I picked up some cool burlap ribbon and some fabric that might make it into the tie backs.



loving the way the sidewalk was looking at this point!



and here's where I should have stopped .. got a cool drink, got out of the heat or gone back to the beach.. Because things started getting a little sideways from this point on.. I'll share those pictures a little later .. Miss Charlene thank you for stopping by and I promise to share tips and info later in the week ..



We had my entire family at Tybee last weekend along with my beautiful cousin Kimmy and her hubby from Pennsylvania. All that stuff and people in the left of the picture are family and all those gorgeous babies are mine all mine !! OK they are not really mine and they are not all babies but they are to me and that's that ! Miss Madison .. lol



Good luck to everyone lets make the next 4 days count and try really hard to complete each of our 10 tasks.. Ya'll head on over to Miss Gina's to see how much everyone else has gotten accomplished . I'm off to take Miss Lois to the doctor this morning. I am taking my tie back stuff with me to work on while I wait on her. They are knocking her out for a little while. She is such a hoot when she wakes up. She will talk silly all the way home and then swear I am fibbing when I tell her what all she has said .. lol Have a fun day everyone

Hugs from Savannah ya'll, Cherry

  3. Looks great! I love your sidewalk! I also know how hard it is to really commit to daily exercise. (There's always so much to do, and that falls to the bottom of my list.) Great job!

  6. Sidewalk looks great, but I thought...ouch on the knees! Ouch in the heat! but, then that beach outing looks fabulous.

    So...other than the sense of accomplishment...other than all these neat things to enjoy...just what are you going to do to celebrate your success! :-)

    STAY COOL!

  15. Wow Cherry! I never in my life would have imagined painting bricks on a sidewalk! How smart! Do you paint something over the paint to protect it? Is it a special kind of paint that won't weather?

    Great job on your list! Keep up the good work!

  19. The sidewalk is fantastic. I would not have thought of that.

    I painted the floor in my laundry area to look like stones.

    I love Tybee and Savanna. I got to visit once and am planning to visit again before I die.
