It's a dry new day at Heart and Home! How's it going? I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was busy around here - we had a lot of fun celebrating my husband's birthday. And we had a break from the rain, hurray, so we even got a chance to get outdoors for awhile. We took a long walk up the road from our house and had a little visit with the alpacas and horses. It felt great to get some fresh air. The wild flowers are beginning to bloom. I love springtime, it's just around the corner...
Have you ever wandered by something about a million times, and then on the million-and-second-time, you notice it in a new way? That happened to me the other day. I've walked past this little angel, which hangs outside by the garage door, every day for about eight years.
Two days ago I really looked at her, and noticed how grungy she looked. The poor little thing had a big crack running up one side of her face! She was covered in spider's webs. She was a mess.
It was a warm day, so I decided to get out the spray paint and make some quick changes. I've been itching to do some painting and it was the perfect project for the few minutes I had in between the cooking and baking and getting things ready for my husband's birthday celebration.
While I was at it, I sprayed these plaques that I picked up at the dollar store. They were pretty ugly, but I saw their potential. I figured for a dollar each I couldn't go wrong.
What do you think? I've put them out on the deck under the plants.
As for the angel, well I think she looks so much better now, in my favorite stone textured Krylon paint.
Even angels need a makeover, every now and then!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you'll join Heart and Home on Wednesday for Wednesday Gratitude. You can post about whatever makes you happy and makes your heart sing. Everyone is welcome!
