Exquisitely Painted Pumpkins…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 25, 2012 at 8:35 am

While perusing the ever so addictive Pinterest, I came across this gorgeous painted pumpkin, which was featured in  the October issue of Chatelaine Magazine.

It was the vibrant colours which really caught my eye.  It never once occurred to me to hollow out a pumpkin, then paint it and fill it with flowers. The good thing is, you don’t even have to hollow out {less work!}, you can just paint as is and viola, a beautiful piece of art created by you!

Thanks to Chatelaine Magazine, this is a DIY project I will try in the near future.  Get yourselves some sample size paints at Home Depot or Lowes and paint away to your heart’s content. Who would have thought!! Off to the supermarket I go!

Before & After…

In Daily Musings on May 22, 2012 at 12:01 pm

 

I bought this vintage mirror a couple of years ago, with the intention of repainting it.  Alas it has moved around  my living room numerous times, before I finally relented and decided enough was enough.

I’ve always loved the blue of Tiffany boxes and I was determined to find the colour, which I did a couple of weeks ago in Home Depot.

Here is the finished product.  I won’t say it was a joy painting this mirror, As an Aquarian,  I love instant gratification, and this was NOT instant enough for me, but I persevered and I’m now the proud owner of a gorgeously painted mirror.

BTW: You may have noticed that there are now ads on my blog, I’ve been accepted as part of the WordPress AdWords Beta program.  AdWords is Google’s flagship advertising product, which can become a source of reveue (please click); so just in case you were wondering, there you are.

 

My First Terrarium

In Daily Musings on January 10, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Well I did it! I created my first terrarium yesterday and had quite a lot of fun putting it together. It’s actually quite therapeutic and I can see this becoming much more than a hobby for me. Can’t wait to create my next one. I’m hoping to get to Home Depot to see what plants they have available. I bought these at a nursery where the pickings were quite slim, they’re waiting for a shipment, but I’m still quite pleased!

My Closet Door

I’ve decided to paint my closet door. I love this colour, I know you can’t see much of it but it’s beautiful. The colour is a blue/green, I’m going to Home Depot to see if they can match for me.  One of my other projects for 2012 is to get my closet to look just like this on the inside!!

Beautiful colour.
