and the pig
have nothing to do with the bit of blue
other than the fact that they arrived on the same day I was painting my bench blue.
The goose and pig are an example of being caught in the World Wide Web where our preferences are known and advertisements pop up on my side bar luring me to specific websites.
I found the Christmas goose and Advent pig on the Maileg USA website for half off with free shipping - they sure know how to get to me!
I know he's an Advent pig, but he is just too cute and some Instagram friends have tagged me recently to show off a little "farmhouse" decor.
The entry is still in the development stage after moving the red cart to the living room - it took up too much space in our little entry.
I think Mr. Pig looks cute sitting on the cabinet.
The little green step stool fits beneath the window and it doesn't take up nearly the space of the cart.
And now to that bit of blue.
In my last post, I showed you my major fail when repainting my old bench from a bright yellow to what I thought would be a light yellow - yuck!
Yesterday I painted the bench with an undercoat of mint green mixed with Saltwash.
For the top coat I used remnants of the paint used for our house trim
and I love how the mint green peeks through after sanding.
A lot of people suggested that I paint the bench the original yellow, but I am loving this blue bench on the porch.
Miss Goose looks quite cute sitting on the bench, but she is hiding in a cupboard and won't come out again until December.
