this great cloche, and the miniture rose plant came in the cute clay pot, (I already had the cement bunny)

and this table was dark brown and scratched badly.  a coat of paint covered up all all the bad stuff.

and just sharing, my latest pic monkey fun here.  I took a pic of my rosemary topiary and applied the “smudge” effect to it, and really liked the change.

  20. Hi Lynn!
    Happy B'day....OMG Just discovered your blog and am in love.
    I make stuff around the house, but with work, I wouldn't have time to dust even a quarter of what you've got in your beautiful house.

    I'm the woodworker, as hubby wouldn't have a clue, and I'm very inspired by some of your hubby's cabinets....uh oh! I feel a trip to the timberyard coming on!

    Have a Wonderful April,
    Best Regards from Sunny Australia,
    Jaya L
