Look what popped up at the oppie next door to Liongirl's ballet class. It begged me to take it home, once I stopped swooning over the gorgeous teal colour with just the teeniest amount of crazing that made it even more likeable. Completely justifiable of course. My only other teapot, I chose when I was 12 and it is in the shape of a cow. When your pour, the tea comes out of the mouth like some massive tea hurl. See, completely justifies a new non hurling teapot.
No justification for this gorgeous rose oil painting other than it was only $ 4 and I loved the colours.
I quite liked the shape. It got me thinking about a quick little spray paint makeover. It seems however that enamel spray paint colour options were not quite my ideal colour palette. While I was envisioning mint greens and mustard yellows, instead there was every possible heritage colour. Heritage green, maroon, cream, etc etc etc. After scouring the shelves and leaving empty handed I can home and ferreted in the shed and found this colour. Creation blue. Not quite duck egg blue but not bad. A bit of steel wool therapy first.
Then, two coats later.......
The perfect spot for my little pile of crafty book goodness. Now I just want to find something else to spraypaint, it's a little addictive you know.( No, not the fumes, the turning something ugly into something pretty bit). Actually, in the interests of factual accuracy I should add that the overspray was so bad on this particular project that a chunk of our back deck is now Creation blue. And all of the soles of our feet. And enamel paint does not wash off in the bath. Back soon, hopefully with some sunshine in tow and clean feet.
