The One with the Doorbell

So I have been pretty much M.I.A. on this blog.

[This is Cierra by the way]

I would apologize, except I have a few really good reasons.


Check them out over in the

meet & greet or on my project 365 blog.

[shameless plug, I know. You can't blame me though,
I learned it from my mom. . .aka Debbie]

I'm expecting my first baby in a few weeks,

[a boy. if you know what his name is please let me know.]

& I have been nesting like crazy!

Over the weekend I found a box in the basement that had picture frames

& other junk inside & I knew that I had to do something with it.

So without further ado:

gray spray paint + one nail + one old ugly frame + a doorbell =


It would also work to frame just about anything else that struck your fancy.

For example, before we moved to this house, this frame framed the peephole.

A la Friends.

I don't have a peephole here, so, well. . .you get the idea.

That is a fun idea, and people are sure to spot the doorbell!

No wonder you have been so busy with important things. Nesting right now is what you are meant to be doing, not talking to a bunch of stangers. I hope your baby comes soon and all goes well. Hugs, Cindy S.

Thanks so much for linking up this fun and original idea! I have a son named Tate--I know one other Tate and his mom and I were saying today what a good name it is, strong and it means cheerful one. Plus cute nicknames, tater bug, tater tot, tater bean :). Good luck!

I love that idea. My husband would think that I've lost my mind, but I just love it!

Linda said...

So cute! And ah, how I miss FRIENDS!

Jenn said...

I love what you did! I was wanting to make something that says "No Soliciting" by my door bell {it is getting to be Spring, which means more door-to-door people}. Thanks for getting me thinking about what it is going to look like!
Have a great day!
