I apologize to my Canadian friends, this giveaway is for US residents only.  Our small town has an festival every year in September called Pioneer Day.  An annual 5K run kicks off the festivities followed by a parade and then everyone has the rest of the day to enjoy carnival rides, live entertainment, arts/crafts vendors, classic car show, pet show then finally ending the day with a rodeo.

This festival is where Three Mango Seeds started but unfortunately we won't be able to be there this year so instead we'll be sharing new sign designs, furniture makeovers & TWO GIVEAWAYS on our Facebook page instead.

Do you follow along with us on Facebook?  If not, here's a quick link so you can be sure to enter on Saturday.

Anyway we'll be giving away one starter kit of Plaster Paint and one of our signs so be sure to be watching our FACEBOOK page Saturday for more details.

Rules and regulations can be found here.

Happy Sunday y'all!  My DIY share for the week is this super sturdy flag holder.  You can ready all about it here.  We also spent the entire day yesterday cleaning/organizing our garage, it feels so good to have it all cleaned out.  We piled on so much junk to take to the dump that my husband's truck looked like a low rider.  Purging feels good.

What have you been up to?

Please excuse our porch decor -- its a work in progress right now between summer and fall.  What I really wanted to share is my super, heavy duty flag holder that Eddie made.

We've had these types of holders, multiple times and they always break.

Now we have this!

I've forgotten this outside now twice during some pretty windy thunderstorms and it held up -- I didn't even lose the flag!

What you need:

  • pipe flange (plumbing)
  • all thread nipple (plumbing)
  • 45 degree elbow (plumbing)
  • 6 or 8 inch nipple (plumbing)
  • wood screws
  • black spray paint

I love it!

We're waiting for the weather to cool off a bit so that we can re-stain all the cedar -- it's in desperate need of a drink after the summer heat.  However, we can mark one thing off of our porch "to-do" list.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you make one for yourself, we'd love to know!
