Two great surprises from the hubby!
Just the other day, I called Brendon and asked him to stop by the store on his way home to pick up some cheese. Not only did he bring home cheese--- he brought home beautiful roses too!
My second surprise was delivered via DVR. Last Saturday, while I was at a friend's baby shower, he found a show called Sarah 101 and started recording the series for me. It's one of those small things that he does for me that I love. He knows how much I love home decor shows and especially the designer Sarah Richardson. I've seen every episode of her show Sarah's House and the spin off Sarah's Cabin. I couldn't wait to watch the first episode of Sarah 101--- Brendon even watched it with me!
Jackpot! Only 22 minutes into the first show and we've already found a little DIY project for our house. We both thought this wall clock was awesome!
We did a little searching and found out that the clock Sarah bought was $65, ouch! "Internet-window shopping" at UrbanBarn.com was nice, but the prices at Amazon.com were much prettier. We bought a clock with the same look for $28!
This wall was begging for something snazzy!
I didn't want to copy Sarah's clock, so I looked at hundreds of fonts. Seriously, Kevin & Amanda's Blog has oodles of free fonts. But, in the end, the fonts Sarah chose were great--- why reinvent the wheel, right? I found almost all of the fonts that matched hers, plus I added a few of my favorites for three, nine and ten o'clock.
Maybe I'll be on time more often since I have this beautiful clock to look at!
