I've had a week since my Mom's
funeral and its been a learning experience.
I keep thinking that she's just a phone call
away...and then realizing
never again here on earth can I see or
hear my Mom...
So I try to stay busy doing the things
that give me joy.
I had gathered up a few things over
the previous weeks for my side
porch and one day that was less
cold and rainy (but not much!)
I put it together.
All thrifted and some of it free!
It's a very narrow porch so the bench
works better than the chairs I had there before.
I used an aging technique on the ladder
as it was just fresh lumber.
I just love when something that is free ends
up looking like it was purchased for
the exact space.
