What do you do??

What do you do when you find a duplicate swan at Godwill for $3 and can't stand leaving it in the store for someone else to buy?? If your answer was spray paint it turquoise, you're right!!! And, if you thought I would want to sell it in my Etsy shop, you would be right. BUT, if you watched the wind knock it over as it was drying and leave the back all scuffed up, you would realize that it was meant to be mine and tell me to keep it. Wouldn't you??!?


AND, what do you do if you got this cute little divided tray at Micahel's for $4, but the light blue just didn't quite "go" with all of the bright turquoise in your life?? If your answer was spray paint the outside of it white and leave the light blue inside, you'd be right :)



I picture it filled with shells and starfish this summer...{dreamy}. Ok. that's enough of my rambling for today :)

  1. so i was at my thrift store (yep, ive claimed it) today and someone had corralled all the swans to one shelf. this is very unlike them but im thinking they must be on to your swan trend = )

  9. Hooray for not leaving the adorable swan behind (in the Goodwill store that ALWAYS smells like poop, I might add)! Hooray! That is one lucky swan to get to come home with you and to get to STAY!!! Good choice! (now give him/her an eye...please sissy! LOL)

  12. What color spray paint is the blue? I can not for the life of me find a nice bright turquoise spray paint! Everything I try is too green toned.
