Well hello there…

You probably already know that I am in my home country. You probably have seen gazillion places and possibly met some of my friends. I will be back home soon and promise to show you our 1st major Project here in the Philippines. (Crossing fingers…)
For the meantime, here’s a project I made prior to my vacay:
I found this metal pitcher at a thrift store when I was on my “scavenger phase” during my Farm wedding 2011. I wanted to look for Rustic and vintage items to incorporate the laid-back feel for my theme and I ended up loving this beauty. I, of course painted it white with latex paint.
I have seen at Williams-Sonoma a slightly bigger Vintage Painted Watering can for $69.95 and I already felt nauseous. Since I got married I have been thrifty and made sure that I am financially responsible. I think that’s the effect I had when I married Mr. Pennypincher.
Most recently, Vintage and Restore by K sent me a paint color I decided to try.
Mauvelous by Vintage and Restore by K
As you noticed, I painted and repainted (the watering can) but nothing really sticks. I feel like it has to mesh with the garden.
I used Mauvelous by Vintage and Restore by K. This chalk paint is really easy to use.
Vintage and Restore by K is possibly one of the best chalk paints. The colors are absolutely awesome and the 16 oz goes a long way. I honestly still have enough paint left for the next project..
The Old Portuguese neighbor gave this to me. I think she loves me. She never spoke to me except for a casual Hi and Hello wave when we see each other. But I think she see me planting succulents last year so she decided to give this to me.
I love how the flowers are just show-off’s when I take their photos. Ha Ha Ha!
Finally a good use for my vintage watering can.
On a different note, I will still be here in my home country next month. We will travel on a secret getaway and as promised, you will always have a glimpse of a paradise I call HOME.
I miss Mr. P…
Keep smiling y’all!
Life is good! Xx
