Peat Pots and Lavender

I have a lot to share this week.  Yesterday was a very busy one for me.  I got a lot done, but I didn't get many photos taken.  That's what I'll be doing today.  So, I'll be back later with another post.  In the mean time, here are a few pics of one of my small project.  Just in time for Spring.





I painted these peat pots blue, followed by a top coat of white.  No need to add texture.  I just used acrylic craft paint.  I then tore blue ledger paper, and decoupaged it right over a sprig of lavender.  I do love my lavender.








Simple, but very pretty.  See ya later.
