~PAINTED OUT IN CRISP WHITE~
Not long after I started blogging I shared with you just how I came about getting this charming Bicycle Planter! If you missed it or would like to read more sappy stuff then just click on the highlighted link above.
Below is a picture of the planter when my hubby first gifted it to me a couple of years ago. She was Verdigris in color back then and I actually LOVED her that way. But...after two winters outside (I know...I know!) she was NOT looking too well. So, for Spring 2011 I decided to paint her out using my newly favorite spray paint, Fresh White, by Valspar (available at Lowe's).
Now...I make no secret about the FACT I don't have a Green Thumb. I wish I did. Prayed for it in fact...just don't think it's meant to be. Even so, I still give planting pretty flowers, shrubs, trees and even herbs a more than admiral "try". Sometimes I hit pay-dirt and sometimes when the end of the growing season is over I fill up my trash can(s) with dead foliage (bah!)...
It's just now really warming up here in Oklahoma and trust me when I say our gardens and lawn DID NOT FARE WELL during the Winter. It will be another month before our grass thickens up and turns a beautiful shade of green...I can't wait!
~FRESH WHITE IS SO YUMMY~
Here's another shot of her sitting pretty holding my Grandma's favorite flowers, Geraniums. I can't look at them without thinking of her!
~VIEW FROM INSIDE~
About a month ago my hubby installed our new French Doors in our breakfast room. Remember that post? Ever since then we've been waiting for our new side windows to arrive and I'm happy to say they finally came in this week! We had to have them special/custom ordered and it seemed to take FOREVER for them to get here!
This weekend they will be installed and I'm going to tell you right up front that they BETTAH BE WORTH WHAT WE HAD TO PAY FOR THEM! Wow! Paying for custom-sized windows will put you in the poor house and this
nearly fainted over having to give her right arm for them (well, almost...you know, right?)...
Hope your day is wonderful!
Love to you on this gorgeous Spring Day...
