With A Little Paint

You can fix anything! This is the back of the pot... (well you didn't expect me to put that great big chip in the front , did you? LOL!) Oh dear, but there was a chip on the other side...so I "fixed" that with another little saltbox.
And in true trash to treasure style I put the unscathed part forward and added my favorite, the barn...in the apple orchard. Note the cows, the chickens and the cute little weathervane...
If farms were not so much work I would live on one. HAHAHA.
And my little chipped pot sits happily in the Pumpkin Patch holding patterns.
Can you spot it in the picture? I bet you can't see the chips! =)Hope you day is filled with wonder. Give those old chipped pots a chance...

I love your pot and making a treasure out of what some might toss in the trash. Your painting is lovely. I don't paint so well, but my sister does so maybe she can make me some painted pots for my garden when we finally lay it out and plant it next summer. Really cool!

I can't see the pot for all that FABRIC on the wall!! Send me the fabric please and then it won't distract anyone from seeing that lovely blue pot...k?

That room is to drool for!!!! So very organized and beautiful. And the pot fits right in! I almost feel a little bad and un-organized when I look at your room, but then, I think it's the inspiration to "get organized" like you!!!
Thanks for sharing.

Hey Brenda,

Me thinks you've been holding out on us!! What an amazing painter you are!!! IF you weren't into quilting, you could always paint for extra income! Wow! Love that planter!

I think we'd all love to come shopping at your house!
