A touch of Spring...

We had a really Spring-y weekend here. The hubby was tiling the kitchen back splash with a friend which left LM and me with some time on our hands - a rare thing indeed. We bought some plants and seeds and started planting. And painting. This pot had been sitting outside without any flowers since last summer. I loved the patina it was getting sitting out in the element. I stenciled it with our house numbers but the paint ran a bit and didn't look very good - it actually would have looked good for Halloween with the little (big) drips of paint so I took a different route. I spray painted the bottom and then mod-podged the numbers I cut with my Cricut. I wanted to keep some of the patina showing so I left the rim natural. I think it turned out really nice. :)

Next, I wanted to do something with this slate. I have had it for years (think 80's) and it was time to be freshened up. So using the same black spray paint/ mod-podged letters technique I made some changes...

Lovely transformation, I think! I used ribbon as the hanger and left some sticking out the front for a little color and texture.



With the new flowers and updated signage and pots its beginning to look like Spring around here...
