A Thank You & A Look A-Head

Thank you all so much for participating in my first ever blog party. I think it was a great success---because of all my wonderfully creative and talented friends. You all amazed me. There have been a few late comers, so check on them too. It was so fun to see the many ways spray paint can transform things. I know that I've added a few more projects to my ever growing spray paint list. I'm beginning to think it might be a wise idea to buy stock in spray paint companies. That way I might be able to recoup some of the large amounts of money I spend on those marvelous little cans.

And speaking of spray paint. . .

I went to the blue big box home improvement store to buy more paint and look what I found.I couldn't pass this guy up. Look at that toothy grin.
You can't be afraid of an old thing like this.
It has good bones...bwahhhaahaahaa!!!

I'm not putting out my Halloween decorations yet,
but I thought I'd give you a little preview of things "a-head."
Thanks Susie for the "heads up" on the crows.

Now you can see why this guy
headed
out the door with me.
He's just too much fun!

Oh I wished I could have joined in all the painting goodness, but I was up to my elbows in my blog giveaway. Maybe next time for sure.. And that skull it too cute I love how you have him displayed.

I think we should make Sept 1st Fall Decor day. I think everyone should get their stuff out & show it off. I am the only one ready for fall decor? :) Most likely! I'm always in a hurry.....

Haha--too funny! Can't wait to see your fall ideas :). I love the clock face tray your cloche is on! My Dollar Tree doesn't have the crows :(. I'm so sad!! They are too expensive everywhere else. You're a lucky-duck!

Have a blessed day,
Stacey

Well, I must say I never would have thought to buy something like that, but under the cloche he is elevated to elegant (in a spooky kind of way)! Now I'm going to be on the look out for one of my very own. I even have some crows to keep him company! Can't wait!

I found your blog and stayed up way too late last night reading it - you are terrific. I have such a hard time accessorizing, but you have a knack. I think you are my inspiration.

Sorry I missed your party but I will for sure be back for the next one cause I went an bought a can of Black spray paint this week and did a wicker table so I will have the before and after and Oh Man what a difference a little small can make.
