Spring is definitely in the air here. The snow is slowly melting and with rain on the way, it should be gone soon. As areas melt, I dive in to start cleaning. And I can start doing some of my outside projects. I bought this little stool a while back.
It is very heavy and well made so I thought it would be a good mosaic project to make for the garden. I will use it around the potting bench.
I sprayed the base but not the top because that needs to be primed before I mosaic it. I love giving gifts in baskets and I have been finding all sorts of fabulous baskets for one to two dollars at thrift shops recently.
The cleanup on the potting bench begins. What a mess!
Now I am ready to start decorating it for spring.
LOOK!!! I can almost see my whole table top! It has been covered since shortly after Christmas.
I paid 1.00 for this basket and it was white. I sprayed it oregano and added satin ribbon and will fill it with live shamrocks as soon as I can find some.
I just bought this basket this morning for 1.00. It has a solid wooden bottom and will be great when it is painted.
The four silver spreaders were 15 cents each.
This is Waterford and weighs a ton! And better yet, it was 2.50!
This is a wooden box that cost 50 cents. I am spraying it and not sure what I will do with it yet. When I spray paint smaller objects, I put them in a cardboard box which keeps the spray paint from blowing everywhere.
And since I can't have the real thing, this girl will be the substitute! 1.25
This set of 6 plates was 2.95. The edges and color will work great for mosaic projects.
And check this out....what a find! This is the first one of these I have ever come across in all my days of thrifting and antiquing. I was in a crappy little store that had not much of anything when I spied this.
A perfect chrome cake carrier from the 40's. It looks like it was rarely used. It has two levers on each side that slide to secure the lid to the bottom. And it even says CAKE on the lower right side. 2.00!!!! Wahoo!!!! Now it is time to play with the potting bench before the rains come.
