I needed some color....in my garden that is.
When we first moved to the farm a short 6 or 7 weeks ago, I had premade some garden signs that just needed to be finished up.
During the move they got lost...go figure. Everytime we went into the city I forgot to pick up boring ole popsicle sticks so low and behold I was doin my chores and in an old sink I found these.
Mommy's gettin new garden signs...yippee.
I popped these babies out so fast, went rifling through my new spray paint collection and went to town painting.
Make sure to get ever side and the tops too.
Now I opted to use my new paint markers for this project because I just wanted to write on it in simple text....whatever that means, lol.
The paint markers are sooo simple to use and you can pick them up at Wal-Mart for 2 or 3 dollars.
How cute is this cantaloupe one?
All laid out and looking pretty. Simple, affordable, and colorful.
Mr.Wade and I were looking to have a little fun for a few hours yesterday when we ran into the city so we went to Norman and one of my favorite places...The Mont. It's short for Monterrey as in California. A little bit of Cali in Oklahoma is just what we needed.
We sat out on the patio and had lunch and visited with people we didn't even know...and LOVED it. You'll always find friendly people in Oklahoma.
It's a hangout on the edge of the OU campus and is so great for everyone to hang out at. The garden setting is great. Fun tunes, great misters, beautiful plants, college students who never cease to amaze me, and of course great food.
I had the enchiladas...which came with homemade pico and chips... and I'm going to be making pico from the maters in my garden soon. I just needed some NOW. It was a craving.
We loved it. Isn't the building adorable too. My kind of place. If you ever visit Norman make sure to go to The Mont.
Now enough chatting for me...we are in the middle of painting the outside of the office/guest house....and more mowing to be done.
For more of my fun paint projects go here..
