Spring Bliss


I just bought these over the weekend.  Rod WOrks (for the flower) and my ultimate Fave Hobby Lobby (for the wreath)

 they went from not so happy to......


funny story. I didnt like the white coler I Painted on the wreath.  Do you ever have a picture in your head of what you think a PRoJect will look like and, well it doesnt turn out the way you think it will??

This happened to ME

Well I thought the white looked a little DRaB.  And well, I dont want that for MY POrch especially with the depressing Snow on the Ground.
 I wanna feel happy when I see it!

not DRAB

SO another Spray to the wreath (with Krylons, Ivy LEaf green) and......... TA DA!

 im a crazy lady I know!

                                       did I mention I love this color of Green?

                        Now I love it.................
                                       I can cross that one off my list :)

The Milk Can is painted with Chalk Board spray paint (it comes in spray paint form and brush on)  I got mine at Home Depot.

My Spring Bliss is patiently waiting for all the Snow to melt.  You see I live in Utah and over the past few days we got several inches of the white stuff. 

Luckily Today It was sunny and warm and the Snow began to melt away.  So I took full advantage of the temperature.  Got some painting done!  I am OOhhhh so close to having 2 dressers done for you to see!

Oh and I have New Jewelry to post this week in my shop!  I am in Spring Bliss. :)

Total cost....$6.99 flower and $7.50 wreath= 14.50 not bad for a Wreath that isnt THE typical wreath....

Did I mention My Good friend Carrie inspired me to do this?

She found a flower similar to this one last year and its on her front door too!
hope I inspired you to get your BliSS ON!
I will Be lInking this up so go see where i Party and be inspired here!

  1. Heidi, that is So freakin cute!! You need to come help your friend decorate... I don't have to watch kids for the next 12 days so we need to get together. TIff:)

  2. Super cute. Love the turqiouse. It has been my new favorite color for awhile now. Love the hanging lantern thing.... for a lack of a better description.

  3. Really cute Heid! Awesome work as always!!

  4. SOOOOOO cute!!! I have a wreath almost EXACTLY like that, and my husband is always complaining that it looks like something off of Nightmare Before Christmas. I think if I paint it something cute like yours he'll let me keep it! Did you spray paint it? If so...what color!?! I must get it!!! :)

    And I LOOOVE your jewelry shop! Seriously, EVERYTHING is beautiful! You are sooo friggin' talented!

  6. the wreath is cute, but I love the milk can...is it painted with chalk board paint? What a cute idea..thanx for sharing. Stop by my blog and enter the 100 Follower Giveaway before Sunday...Tiff at The Cranky Queen

  7. That is so cute. I may be using this Idea. I live in AZ and everything is so brown. That would definately liven up an entryway out here.

  8. Heidi, I LOVE it. You are so talented. I would have never thought to do this!

  9. This is great - I like the green better than the white too!!
