Did you know I could speak Italian?
Nawww, I can barely speak English let alone a foreign language!
La Dolce Vita!
The good life, full of pleasure and indulgence.
Let me tell you a little story!
I make mine short and sweet.
Once upon a time…
I had a pallet project…or two or three..
Twas a very lovely pallet and we have been enjoying it since Last Fall!
But as you know, all good things must come to and end.
And so the story goes…
A little paint,
A little stencil,
A little brush…
Oh and a little photo staging for your entertainment.
These peppers are much too pretty to actually use.
My husbands co-worker gave this to us, fresh out of his gardens.
What a glorious day this was!
Suppose to be 100 degrees on Friday!
And so you see….
La Dolce Vita…
has come to life!
Disclaimer: The saying was Mr. Doo’s idea. Of course, during my project mode,
I asked him what he thought I should stencil.
He gave me a shrug…
next thing I know, he shows me the computer screen…
and says “I like this”
Hmmm…..okay…..in no particular order…..I love stencils, chalk paint, pallets and Italy. This is the perfect project for me!
Have a wonderful day rock star!
Perfect phrase to stencil! It sure looks like La Dolce Vita with the staging & your backyard as a fantastic backdrop!
Debbie, I love it, great job!! Yikes 100 degrees….keep cool! xo ~Liz
I love it! We share the same heatwave this week! Yuck!
I love anything with words and sayings….especially Italian and French!
So nice to have a hubby with good ideas.
The sweet Life is a wonderful Life! Great project love everything!
you two make the perfect team, its beautiful!

I truly love how you are always reusing and redoing! Hugs, Linda
How do you say ‘hotter than Hades’ in Italian? That’s what I’m putting on my wood!
Loos good. I like it. And, I would say you and Mr. Doo make quite a team.
I love the stain color on your picnic table. We have had 100 degree heat almost every day here and will all week. It’s so nasty hot, and we’ve had absolutely no rain, and I jsut heard last night that all the farmers downstate plowed their crops under b/c they were lost to the drought. How sad! I
Looks great Debbie..I LOVE that your husband helps you!!
All I say is “What a team!”.
Mike is such a good helper! I looks great, another super re-doo. Love that sunflower accent too, so pretty 🙂
You have the best backyard Debbie!!
It perfect Debbie and your photo staging is beautiful!
Love it! And seriously still drooling over your patio and fireplace! Wish I could come over and hang out there with you. I would bring the wine! 🙂
You always have so much fun with your projects! I need to learn to stencil!
I love it, Debbie. Of course, I loved it the other way, too….but I love how you change things u. xo Diana

Love the green! And I really miss participating in your Newbie Party. 🙁 At least I can still enjoy your blog!
Your outside space is looking so awesome…great job on the sign too. We hit 102 today. I was out running errands and actually felt a little sick. Dare I say it but I’m ready for fall.

I think it is beautiful day right….Or is it hunky man? What ever it is perfect!
Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces
Fun! I always (well, almost always lol) love my husband’s input, too! We are so hot here, too…
Yuck, indeed. We’re having another heat wave. Love your pallets new look, and input by hubby.
Definitely the right saying in for that “Sweet” backyard.
Debbie!!! It was so nice to see your beautiful face on my blog comments:) I see you’ve been busily crafting away as usual! I’ve had to put all my crafting on hold while we house sit for my dad and step-mom…I cannot wait to get into a place of our own and get my craft back on!
It is sooo pretty! I love the saying ( you know how much I like stencils) and the color is just perfect for outdoors!

Awww…such a great movie by Federico Fellini. I was not even born when it came out (1960), but I like old movies!!
La Dolce Vita!…I love this phrase, for some reason it always sounds so stylish to me:) You have done a wonderful job, Debbie! Love when you play with pallets and chalk paint, it always turns out so beautiful and vibrant……awesome job of staging your summer vignette! Your loving visits always make me happy:) Stay cool!Hugs,Poppy
You two work so well together. I love team effort! Great redo. I love your outdoor setup..
Love the pallet…love the saying and love love the color!!….yes, it is hot, but I heard that we are getting a “cold front”…so maybe it will be 95 instead of 100.
