We did an event called “The Outsiders” over in The Lettered Cottage Community this month and I thought it would be fun to share what a few of our talented members have been up to here today. It was a fun way to hold each other accountable as we finished up some projects we had all been putting off!
I’ll start with a photo of our front porch. If you missed my blog post about it, you can find it here: Spring Front Porch Decorating
It was such a fun space to spruce up and we spend SO much more time out there now! 😀
The first friend I want to share is Jennifer. She did such a great job around her front door!
So crisp! And what a fun spin on a traditional wreath! You can find her on Instagram here: @jennifer.sublett
Next up is Laura’s dry river bed:
She and her husband used a traditional weed fabric down the center of the river bed and also created a trench with rubber drain tile to carry water away from their house around . She said they’ve had a dry basement ever since- woo hoo! Laura doesn’t have a public blog or Instagram account (yet!) but if you have any questions for her, feel free to leave her a comment below. 🙂
Next up is Stacy’s gorgeous fire pit area:
Her Instagram caption on that photo read, “After a few days of working in both the sweltering heat and the rain, several gazillion trips back and forth to the driveway with a tiny wheelbarrow, and a couple of near-divorces 😂 we were able to check FIRE PIT off our to-do list! Can’t wait for our first fire this weekend!”

Next up is Ashley’s pretty porch:
Next up are Kym’s colorful front steps:
I am absolutely smitten with the look of those flower-filled pots on every single step! You can find Kim online at KymHretz.com/a>
Next is Angie’s fun, red, white and blue porch spruce-up:
She said she got the rug at Old Time Pottery and that she thinks it’s a Surya rug. You can find Angie at Spain Hill Farm on Facebook!
Next up is Courtney and her beautiful container gardens:
Color me inspired!!! You can find Courtney on Instagram here: @CourtneyJanesTX
Next is this welcoming little seating area Julie created:
Oh, how I love an unpainted wood rocking chair! We *also* went with that tone on our porch. I love all the pops of green in Julie’s photo too! You can find Julie on Instagram here: @theheartenroad
Last but not least is Stephanie’s cool new house number:
Her and her hubby knocked it off their wish list this month and I think it’s such a cute and creative idea! You can find Stephanie on Instagram at @cabin20creations
