Endings of September...

Well-
The patio floor/decking has been completly painted. And the posts and balusters...
Remember all that Green coloured paint- Sea Green, Pine Green. Forest Green, Guacamole Green- etc. that I had worked myself into a nice OCD Quivering froth about ?

After Finally deciding on 'Just The Perfect Shade' of green...

Shirley and I bought blue..

But not just Any old Blue....

A blue called:

BEHR Premium Plus
#S-G-570 Sapphire Lace Interior/Exterior Paint


Could I have gotten further Away from what I had in Mind ??

I do Love it tho. It is brighter and Cheerier and has a 'Pop" to It I truly enjoy.

And Rather Oddly- it Appears to change Shades depending on the Morning/Evening light .
Go Figure...

Painting makes me Happy- the 'After' results show So quick !!



The wall is "Bicycle Yellow"...




Shirley- Painter Extraordinaire' is Bicycley Yellow...




And Here Comes the  "Sapphire Lace'...





 Now she is Sapphirey Blue...




Alice likes it too !!



Her she is Obligingly  looking at the Camera. Showing how grubby the Brand New Paint has already gotten...



There have been quite a few Left-over projects to get finished so Sawdust and Dust and Grubblies are tracked ALL over !!

It does look so nice and Done-
Now to Get this puppy all Decked out in its Autumnal Glory...

Can you hear the Rumble of plastic storage bins filled to the Top with Scarecrows, Silk Leaves, and Faux Flowers being drug across the floor ?

♥~~~~~~~~♥

Do you Know what you get when you use the front & back mesh covering off a broken stand fan, 3 leftover 1"x1" balusters, a 16" plant saucer, and some Sea Shells ??

I made my self a BirdBath..
Oh Yes I Did !!



Screw the wooden pieces to each other-
Screw the fan covers to the top of the Wood Pieces...
Drive pointy end of Wood pieces thingy into the Dirt behind the Blue pot of Ivy... (Remind me- next time soften dirt with water- 'kay ?)




Plant Tall pretty grass into Blue pot of Ivy...




Place Terracotta plant Saucer snugly down in 'bowl' of fan covers...
Add Abalone shell, Conch shell, Oyster shell, & Scallop shell-
Fill with water...

And be Amazed at how many Itty Bitty Birds, Blue Birds, Brown Birds, Gray Birds, Biggerish  Birds and Crickets come to take a thirsty drink... all of whom seem to Visit when I am sans camera of course !!




So... Until Next Time----

It has surely been a Lovely Summer into Fall Season in the Neighbourhood !!

You've been really busy! I love the yellow and blue combination. If you ever run out of jobs and projects in your house I'm sure that I could provide a painting vacation over here!!! Ha Ha! Jx
