Before you read today's post, I wanted to thank everyone who has sign up to follow my blog. Before I started blogging, I never signed up as a follower. Now, I am going back and signing up on many of the blogs that I read. I realize that it is exciting to see the list of followers increase.
So last night I worked on the front porch of the Tumbleweed House. The porch is made of basswood, and I stained it a light, golden honey color. Then, I sealed it with a coat of Future floor wax. I really like the way that it turned out.

I then decided to decorate the front of the house, just to see what it might look like when it is finished. I added a little terracotta planter/birdbath/bird feeder to the side. I have add this piece for a long time just waiting for the perfect place to hang it. Don't you love the tiny bird and the touch of turquoise?
Next, I hung the mailbox and the numbers for the address. I wanted the address to be the year that I built the Tumbleweed House. The numbers are a little crooked, but they are fine for now.

Lastly, I added a birdhouse on a stand and a plant near the front door. I think it looks pretty good so far.
