I do like that spray paint..it is so cheap and makes such a difference. I am going to have to hit the thrift stores with an eye to 'garden critters'. Of course, there are a few things in my yard that I can paint right now...well, when the sun comes up.
Absolutely love your dancing lady.
Nice tip on holding the can upside down and spraying till only air comes out. I didn't know that.

Thanks Jackie. Shopping for treasures is always fun. Making what we already have beautiful again can be fun too.

That tip on holding the can upside down came from my Dad many years ago.

Thanks Jo. It is amazing what a little paint will do for things that just don't look as good as they used to. It's a shame there isn't spray paint for people! HAHAHAHA

ROFL! Oh Jo. All I can say is that the Lord for L'Oreal! I'm not one for plastic surgery, but I can at least cover up the gray in the roots. I've had to deal with that since I was 19 years old. At hubby's request, I did just let it go for a couple of years. And I look back on photos now and think to myself, what WAS I thinking, listening to him!?!?

I know. I tried coloring it myself and always missed a spot. Now, I trade out doing taxes for getting it done professionally. We both win that way!
