Anything Is Fair Game...

Once I get in the painting mood, anything that sits still and is blank is fair game for my paint brush. =) My husband never knows what will be painted when he comes home. We have a huge wooden beam running across our living room. He has said I can paint on it, but I have not gotten the inspiration yet. I want to paint a Bible verse with some greenery or something. Anyway, I had my paints out finally. I had things that needed to be painted and I just never got around to it. Well, I finiehed all of those and I was still in the mood and....

This is the lid to my water bath canner. The canner itself got a hole in it. I now use a stainless steel pan that I have. I have painted on pot lids before. You put a little hole in them and they hang on a wall nicely. You can tell I LOVE sunflowers. They are easy to paint as well.


Then I spied my salt and pepper shakers sitting there looking oh so plain..... Well, now they have a bit of decoration. =)


I couldn't think of anything else to paint on so I went and got a pear to eat. Well, when I was done with it, where do I put the core???? Yup, in the compost bucket that looked so plain and lonely. =) I think I am done for the day.
