Spray Painting Queen~!

LOL - that's what my husband calls me ~ The Spray Painting Queen. If I get sick of something I usually spray paint it. Or if I have something that doesn't match anymore, I spray paint it. If it can be painted ... I spray paint it~!! I have ceramic plant pots that I've probably changed the colour of 5 or 6 times. Well, there is nothing wrong with them, they just don't match where I want to put them so I change the colour and they look brand new again. It's not that I'm cheap, it's just so easy to do. I've changed the colour of wood chairs, tables, picture frames, plant pots, you name it! I've even painted brand new things I've bought because I liked them but didn't like the colour ...lol. Example: We just bought this light for our outside back patio which we really liked ... but it was brown (nice but didn't match our other decor outside) so I bought it and immediately took it apart and spray painted it black.





Tada ... Isn't it cute?. It really suits our place because we are both bird nuts and have so many feeders etc. And I love it black~!



And look at the nice glow it has when you actually use it ... LOL~!

It is getting soooooo cold in the evenings~! The trees around here are actually starting to change already. The sun has been out luckily in the daytime but you can feel autumn in the breeze. Looks like another summer has bit the dust~! That got me thinking about how fast the seasons go by. And so I put these Seasons Page Toppers into LLL Creations Dollar Mart today.







You get 4 page toppers which span across a 12X12 inch paper and have transparent lettering so they look different depending on the paper you put underneath. You get all 4 seasons for only $1.50~! You can get them here or just go through LLL Creations Dollar Mart under the Word Art category.

And my promotion is still on;



The weather also had me thinking how long it's been since we've gone somewhere south. We used to go to Mexico, Dominican or Cuba at least twice a year but it's been a few years. My husband wants to get away at the end of October this year but we're not sure yet. So thinking about traveling I made this freebie for you;





The layout above shows the size against a 12x12 paper and the pictures are from one of our previous vacations. Four of us went and actually left our footprints in the sand ... lol. I used that photo to make this travel charm.
The paper used is part of Beach Papers #1 available here.
The shell stick pin is part of Vacation Mini Kit available here.
