~It's Summer Once More~

Well, yesterday was the last official day of school for the 2011-2012 school year.  There really is no other feeling like the last day of school.  The year is behind me and the entire summer is before me.

To me, the first day of summer break is the best. The possibilities are endless and every carefree day is before me. As always, I have several projects that I would like to complete this summer.  Make sure you keep checking back to see what is going on around here. = )

In honor of the first day of summer vacation, I gave my door box the summer treatment.  This is how it turned out.

I added geraniums, twigs, and three flags with 13 stars on them.  I got the geraniums and flags from The Olde Homestead in Mt. Vernon, Illinois.  The twigs came from the yard! = )

I am really happy with how it turned out and it definitely put me in a summertime mood.

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More.  I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can.  Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook.  I would love to see you there too.  You can also follow Yesterday Once More on pinterest by clicking here.

I remember that feeling of summer's being endless when I was young! Time goes so fast now. I like the door box. Nice and festive! I will be looking forward to your summer projects.

Enjoy your summer, Dan! I can't wait to see what you are up to in the house! Never mind, you did all that last year! It must be outside! I am so jealous...I have to go through June 8th! When do you start? It must be mighty early because we didn't have a single snow day this year! May the summer be filled with family and friends and go by VERY slowly!

Love your door color too! What paint did you use? Is the door wood or metal? Did you need to prime before painting?

Wonderful door box display Dan. Hope you enjoy your Summer, as I'm sure it's so deserving.

The color of the paint I used is called Kiln. It is a Martha Stewart Living color available at Home Depot. OUr door is metal and I did not prime it before I painted it. I hope this helps!
