It's time to stop and smell the flowers.

How can anyone not stop to look at the miracle of a flower? They are bright with color and just spread happiness. I could just spend hours looking at flowers and wonder of the life they live, the purposes they serve and the pleasure they bring. Enjoy for a few minutes some of ours.

The Finished Chair

Okay so the ninety nine cent chair is now worth so much more, but even the expense of fixing something up in exchange for comfort is worth the time spent and the price of paint. It took my daughter time to recover from her surgery, but once she felt up to spray painting she was right back at it finishing another project. Here it is. The chair is done and ready for use. We are both pleased with the result.
Don't ever be afraid to use vinyl paint and auto chrome paint. The results are amazing. They were new to both of us even though spray paint is one of our favorite things to work with. We highly recommend them. If you see that vinyl chair or vinyl anything and think it would look good upcycled then by all means give it a try. What can it hurt?

Spring Flowers

I love when the air is fresh come spring and the flowers finally decide to blossom. After this long and wet winter and spring the Iris' in my garden have bloomed. I have watched these grow year after year for the past six springs and for some reason this year they are special to me. Maybe the stress of getting the garden to mature is off or maybe that I am settled enough to enjoy them. Whatever it is I wanted to share them. I hope you enjoy them as well.
