Happy Day all! I found a wonderful container for flowers at the thrift store some time ago. I didn't use it for the longest time. It just sat in a cupboard til one day I looked at it and thought "hey, I should throw some paint on that!"
It has a silver plate on it and I love it's little "legs". My current obsession seems to be for sea shells, so I thought it would make a nice container for part of my collection of shells. I find I really like the aqua interior as well.
You can paint anything these days. Even if it is metal, plastic, whatever. Now I look at things in a whole new way. I LOVE PAINT! I should probably add that I love a transformation of things (and people for that matter!).
I also found a candy dish with a lid that was such a good deal at a garage sale last summer, that I bought it without a clue as to what to do with it. (no candy in a dish for me sadly) Again I thought... seashells! It looks great in my jam cupboard that is in our bedroom. I love how it looks.
Hopefully, there will be some garage sales this weekend and I can write the first "Garage Sale Safari" post for this blog. Here's hoping the weather co-operates!
