Yesterday was a great day! My sister, Maureen, and my great niece, Trinity who is 7, came over and made me some cupcakes for my birthday.
While they were doing that I thought I would try to finish a project or two. So I gathered up a few things I wanted to paint white and headed outside. I took an old picture frame I got at a thrift store, the cute little cherub statute I won from Debra's Cottage and the cute cupcake holder I won on eBay. I went outside, put the plastic cover over the table and started to spray away.
Just as I finished up the with the frame and cherub statute I heard a loud crack sound! Oh no, the thunder was there. I knew it was just a matter of time before the storm I heard about was overhead. So I grabbed my things and ran inside with them still wet. I only got one coat on the cupcake holder and didn't get to finish it.
One of my gifts from my sister was a big bag of shells. So I thought I would put a candle in the cherub and put a few shells around it. I think it came out pretty cute. I am going to leave it this way for awhile at least.
You can see it in the photo along with the frame. Also in the photo is a small dish/bowl I found at the thrift store. I don't know what it was really used for. Maybe soap??? I thought a few more shells would be nice in there too.
My sister also bought me the box in the photo. I love the colors. It will go perfectly in my new redecorated bedroom.
Since I didn't get the cupcake holder done I didn't put the cupcakes in there. I'll show that to you when the rain goes away and I can finish it.
Don't forget that tomorrow I will draw the name for the winner of my 50th birthday give away. So, if you have not yet signed up, scroll down and leave a post before it's to late.
I won't be drawing the winner for the Cottage Give Away until May 31st so you still have a little time to sign up for that one as well.
