PVC DIY fireworks and American flag pallet with cross

Recent new housing construction left me with a few pieces of PVC pipe (already cut!) so i turned them in to firecrackers/rockets.  I covered them with adhesive vinyl and used my Zing Air cutter to cut out the stars. This particular vinyl was purchased from a sign shop, so the vinyl is great for outdoors.

The flag pallets are my own design.  I love having the pallet on my front porch or in my front yard.  The One Nation Under God is black adhesive vinyl.

Silver platter kitchen

I still have not completed decorating my kitchen.  I bought a valance that I like, but not love, and I can't seem to find what I really want.  I do love the antique silver platters that I added around the window and bench.  I'm certainly open to some suggestions.  I think one of my main problems is the ugly fence I see through the window.  Maybe shutters? I love being able to see outside though.  How about a trellis? The plants could be real or fake.  I'm at a loss.  For the moment though, the silver certainly adds personality to my kitchen and I LOVE it.

Once I figure out the curtains or shutters, I can add the foam window cushion and some throw pillows.

Copper penny bathroom at Tin Roof BBQ in Atascocita, Texas

We love visiting Tin Roof BBQ in Atascosita, Texas. Their ribs and brisket are the best around and have awesome sides like broccoli and rice casserole or jalapeno poppers.  One of the most unique decorations in the building is their bathrooms!  I simply love the penny counters with the buckets and hand pumps.  I took this picture a couple of years ago and it is all over pinterest now!
