I'm about to start working on a few more treasure organizer orders
but took the weekend off and have been playing around with some
of my new Waverly Chalk Paint!
You'd think I was their spokesperson but I promise, I'm not.
I just love that it's cheap, right here in town
and that there are beautiful shades to choose from.
I found these sweet baby shoes at the thrift last week and thought they would be PERFECT
to experiment with using the new Waverly chalk paint I found at wallyworld!
I mixed half of the "ballet slipper" shade with half of the "plaster" shade to come up with
a beautiful pink to paint them with.
Ohmygoodness...it dried like VELVET!
I just love the finish!! I need to give them a coat of matte varnish but think
the pink is just beautiful. These will end up being pincushions.
I'm sure I have some sweet little roses fabric to fill them with!
I also found these chubby little resin birds at the thrift last week.
The colors were too loud for me so I thought I try the chalk paint on them as well.
Here they are after one coat of the shade "plaster"....I haven't decided if I'll antique them or not, we'll see.
Here's one of the finishing coats they offer...I love a matte finish so it's the first one I purchased.
So...now every time I visit Walmart I go by the display to see if there's another shade I like!
Here's my latest purchase..."crystal" I love the beautiful pale blue-gray shade!!
Our precious granddaughter Clara went fishing with her daddy this past Saturday
and caught FOUR fish!!! She was so proud and she even told me that she now
has a fisherman's thumb! When you take the fish off the hook and your thumb comes
in contact with the fish teeth I guess your thumb gets tough??? Sweet, sweet girl ~
And I wanted to share a photo of our sweet grandson Murray.
I watched him last week when his mama and Clara went to the library.
Here he is watching trains from our front porch...he LOVES them!!!
We are only about 500 feet from the tracks so he was in heaven ~
Wishing you a beautiful spring week dear friends!!!
Thank you always, always for visiting me ~
hugs and love,
