It all started with this sign I got at a
 garage sale
for $3bucks
remember this.....
I bragged about this at
garage salen partay

Then I asked my blogger friend where she got
the cutest hook she had hanging from her house

By the way this house is for sale over here

So I went to

and saw this

This one is perfect for my oval sign

Then I asked my Uber talented interior designer
Jen at
Jen's Fleur de leis
to come up with something
maybe a rooster in it?

Whatever she did would be fine
I have so much faith in that girl

and this is what she did for me....
I am in awe of her talent

The hook arrives

Thank goodness for

Brother Bill getting all the
necessary measurments

Heading off to hang it up

How many Forcums does it take to

breathtaking landscaping

driveway (far right)

My little nephew Tristan
