My Dad likes to tease me when I have good news; he tells me “No one likes a bragger, Rob.” I have to brag about a little good luck. Tuesday afternoon J and I got caught up baling hay. We spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning machinery and washing windows before putting things away. We got in the house and ate super together; together and at a normal time. Then it started to rain. We got a nice .70″, what a great way to top off the day.
J spent the cool Wednesday morning checking cattle or so I thought. He called just before noon to tell me he ran into several neighbors and hadn’t got to the cows yet. One of the perks to being self-employed, taking things at your own pace. I got caught up on skirt work.
This morning we are headed out to move cattle to a different pasture. Also on my list, mow the lawn.
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned I had two projects I was working on. I am ready to share! The pictures below are of an old milk bucket I painted. I used the similar steps as I did when I painted terra cotta pots. The flowers, birds, butterflies and sun were craft foam stickers. I used a combination of acrylic paint and paint that I had on hand. I have the bucket sitting in my bay window. Now the question is what do I do with it? I’d love to hear your ideas.
I found a couple more terra cotta pots. I sent this pot to my Aunt/Godmother for her birthday. The blue is spray paint. I’m not a big fan of spray paint. After doing a sloppy job on a previous pot, I realized there is a technique to spray painting. Take is easy and paint in layers.
I am taking a blog break starting this weekend through August 2nd.
I hope all of you are enjoying the summer. Have a great week and we’ll meet you back here in August.
