Love it! Rust and buttons just go together! I spray painted some hydrangeas a soft green the other day. My mama used to do it and sale them in bundles. Think I might try that in my booth. They hold up well because I still have some that she did years ago...I know that surprises you:-)
What am I grateful for? Too much to list, but one of them is YOU! Best, Vicki

Vicki, so glad you shared that tip...these kept their color, but lots didn't, of course I love the cream color, too. I am grateful for you and all the encouragement I get from blogging!

The hydrangeas look great, Lezlee!
I love how you think outside the box...I have some of those old grates. Never did think to use them this way.
I liked you (elsie mae) on fb too!
I didn't find the link the other day, so thanks for posting it.
