I got this burlap pillow with a blue pick up truck painted on it. Enjoy the Ride, is what is printed on it.
I love this garden flag ..geraniums in cans painted like flags. Isn't this a cute print. I thought why not paint some can like these on the flag for my porch. To tie the flag in the porch décor.
I chose a quart of Valspar paint to do some painting. It's in a gray color called "mouse house". Once I paint something, I'll post what I decided to paint.
Here's one of the displays at Horton's hardware. They have lace over the ribs of an old patio umbrella.
This is under the umbrella, orange ribbons , a grapevine wreath. Some greenery too.
A carrot wreath inside an old pan that no longer has it's bottom. This is hanging over a mirror.
Some more cute carrot things. Napkins, dish towels, and serving trays. I am sure this is all for Easter. Of course it could be used in a country style kitchen any time.
Today is a nice enough day here. We are to start getting rain on Wednesday evening, turning to snow. Heavy snow too. Doesn't look like we are going to be lucky enough to have this storm miss us. It will be hard to take after the glorious weekend weather we just had. Wishing all of you well. XO
What a burst a springtime your blog post was this morning. Can't wait to see what you paint. Glad you had a good weekend my friend!ReplyDelete
Patty, I think I like all the orange color at Horton's. I would not think to make a wreathe of carrots though. LOL I think I am getting spring fever. I am wanting to dig in the dirt.:) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh I just love what they did with the grapevine wreath. Who would have ever thought. I'm just afraid of putting screws in the ceiling and how do you them to hold?ReplyDelete
Bonnie, The grapevine in the under side of the patio umbrella, may be anchored with fishing line. I do not put nails in my ceiling either. I'll try to get a closer look next time. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I'm going to get my husband to make me a fake version of that umbrella! A pole with dowels, and then I'm putting a lace round tablecloth over it!ReplyDelete
I think that sounds like a great idea. I would do that here, if it wasn't so windy all the time. Blessings,xoxo, SusieDelete
Sweet pillow! I'm looking forward to spring. The snow needs to go!ReplyDelete
Deb, You are so right...the good weather makes me want more and no more snows. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh yes, I think those cans painted like flags are super cute. That would be so fun to do. Can't wait to see what you do with the gray paint. I hope the predicted snow storm fizzles out for you. Spring! Spring, I say! xoReplyDelete
I can't wait to paint some cans for flowers. I'll post it if I get it done. Girl, we are in the line of a snow storm ..it could be heavy. I am already over winter for this year. LOL. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love that pillow you picked up - that would be ever so cute on a covered porch for the summer!!ReplyDelete
I am planning on the pillow being on the porch. I have a little blue truck planter out there. Blessings for a great day, xoxo,SusieDelete
You will have so much fun painting your 'flag cans' for your porch. What a great idea! I may even 'steal' that idea! May you enjoy a wonderful week! Blessings, Cindy xoReplyDelete
I am going to see if my daughter will save some of their big coffee cans for me. :) I buy our coffee in a bag. Please post your painted cans if you do them. :) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Love the pillow. I had to break my bad mood today so I went a few places. I am getting excited for spring too. Yep, snow and rain coming here too.ReplyDelete
Debby, If you can get out and about, it's the best thing to just go window shopping. I used to do that more. Blessings, stay safe in the next big snow. xoxo,SusieDelete
Now Susie, they better have more of those pillows because I want one for a friend! I debated on buying it when I was there the other day!!!ReplyDelete
Love the carrot wreath. They are so creative!
Cindy, Thta's why I bought that little truck pillow, didn't look like there were a bunch there. Plus you know I have that little blue truck planter on my porch. I may paint the truck on the pillow darker.. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love your pillow and garden flag,Susie. Yes, it's almost that time...to start decorating for Easter. This year sure is going in a hurry, almost March!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful day!
Sylvia, this year is going pretty quick. But I am ready for some fresh air in my house...want to open my windows.:):) Hope you are loving your new place. I have like the pictures you have shown of it. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
The pillow is so cute! Snowing today here, too!ReplyDelete
Linda, This pillow is not for comfort...too scratchy. LOL. Boo on that snow...I think most of us are ready for spring. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
More snow, Susie? I wish I could see it! You found lots of goodies at Horton's. Can't wait to see what you decide to paint.ReplyDelete
It's sunny here today. I might head over to the lake to see if it's filled up since we got some rain. The last time I visited, it was lower than I've ever seen it. :(
Sheri, I hope the lake has more water in it. I know your state needs all the water it can get...I just pray there's no floods or landslides from rain. That is too scary. I am also hoping our rain isn't too much before the snow moves in. It will be slick for a while...I have a couple things I want to paint. :) Blessings, love you, SusieDelete
Horton's looks like such a fun place. Love your new treasures and will be waiting to see what you decide to paint.ReplyDelete
I am going to post whatever I paint...cause my life is pretty much a slow one, nothing super exciting happening here. LOL. Hope you are doing well and your sweet family, xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow, what a nice place and such awesome treasures. I wish we had one around here. Hugs and love, xoReplyDelete
Susie, I can't wait for the flowers to arrive at their greenhouse. I will get some pretty pictures. Thinking of you and praying you are starting to feel better and enjoying some good times. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
You could paint my living room! Here you are getting stuff while I get rid of stuff that I got over the years possibly making room for more stuff to get later on.ReplyDelete
