Paint Party Friday & a weeks worth of paint


so Rog cut this awesome Shamrock for me from 3/4" pine and I painted it all up and will hang it on our front door ~ with Irish wishes for HOPE, LOVE, FAITH and a little bit of LUCK for all who visit (the little shoe will not be staying there, just set it there for the photo)

acquired this peculiar little hand carved (reportedly back in the 1970's) wooden shoe from ETSY and turned it into a little Leprechaun shoe I'll hang it on our St. Patrick's Day tree.

... more snow today in CT, so I'm building a forever snowman from a Chinese bottle gourd, my little hat I made in my first knitting class and Paperclay carrot nose, buttons and lumps of coal for eyes and mouth.

painted a piece of CT shore driftwood with some Caribbean 'frolic' colors
for my Great Hammock Beach peeps (mostly because I need some Summertime)

Head on over to PPF to see what is happening there and don't forget ... Friday, March 15th is the PPF Auction Blog Hop to Benefit Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Happy St. Patrick's Day
