(This picture was taken last year on vacation with my hubby.)
I wanted to use this picture today because there has been a lot of heartache these last two weeks for people I know and care for and it makes me realize how fragile life is. Cherish every moment and capture every memory.
God has three more beautiful angel's dancing with him today!
I love these flowers because I planted them about 3 years ago and they keep coming back every year (even when your husband thinks they are weeds and cuts them down when he is doing yard work- but they do come back a week later.) Another reason I love this flower is even after a few day's in water and a pretty vase they still look great.
Okay, well I seem to be MIA lately and not able to blog like I thought. Now that the show is here and after all the sanding, painting, distressing, gluing, freaking out, dusting off, ect. I didn't get the pic's I wanted but here are some pic's that I have taken over the last few months of our collection. I hope that some of yall can come see us this weekend if it doesn't rain "cross you fingers pleeeeeease!"
If you like antique's like me you run across a few rusted thing's. Well.....alot of rusted thing's actually.
So...here's what you can do to turn something dull, rough, & rusty to brighter, smooth & rusty!!!
1st: you need something rusty
2nd: sand paper fine & medium ( you can sand by hand or use electric sander)
3rd: water hose
4th: PLAID clear acrylic sealer matte in spray can
Okay this is what you do:
1st: sand the entire thing until it is smooth all over
2nd: rinse with hose until clean let dry
3rd: spray with acrylic all over let dry
What this does is smoothes the metal and seal's it so you can set it anywhere and not worry about it flaking and rubbing off as well as not cut a finger or two. The seal doesn't take away the old look it just gives the color's a richer look.
