Perhaps the cutest lemonade stand ever (but I may be a little biased)

A few years back we were hired to faux paint a client’s laundry room walls. While working in her home, I noticed she had an awesome lemonade stand for her children in her garage.  It was so stinkin’ cute and I tried HARD to get her to sell it to me, but she wouldn’t (bless […]
