Hello you gorgeous Planetarians, all 418 of you (and that reminds me - it must be about time for another giveaway!). I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. Yesterday, I managed to slip around to sweet Sarah's and deliver this parcel of love for her 40th (how I *love* wrapping presents!).
Just a quickie tonight. I thought I'd share with you the results of my painting spree today. Whilst Mr PB and the pixies were weeding and planting vegetables and azaleas in our garden, I was in *my room of my own* transforming some very ugly $2 Officeworks black frames into something much more pleasing to the eye.
This is what I started with. Hmm, not much to look at.
Then, inspired by my little box you saw here with its gradations of blue, I ended up with these.
Then came the fun part - deciding what to fill them with! I had oodles of blue-based ideas stashed away (quelle surprise!). This is what resulted.
And here are the close-ups.
First, a painted Mason jar with delightful hydrangeas (we're itching to plant many of them at PB HQ).
Then a gorgeous bluebird letterpress card from the talented Tasmanian, Narelle of Ruby Victoria fame.
Followed by a divine greeting card of Australian photographer, Warwick Orme, entitled 'Tuberose twin'.
I am really looking forward to hanging them up now - they make my heart sing. It also means we're nearing the end of The Great Unpack if we have time to decorate ☺. Have a fabulous week, my friends.
PS Edited after A-M's comment below. They didn't stay in the garden for long. They soon joined me and painted away, learning to mix colour using my colour wheel. Educational but very messy! I tried to take a photo but our camera battery was flat. Keeping it real here, my friends ☺.
