Happy Friday, all!!!  Are we ready for a fabulous weekend?!!!  Aaaand you know it!!!

Again, I can't thank you all enough for the wonderful and warm comments.  I did share them with my aunt and other than the fact she didn't having her picture posted, she was too tickled -- she was actually blushing! 

Wow, I've got another new follower!!!  Hello, Zwin and welcome to my little family!!!  I hope you make yourself at home and visit often -- I always love company!!!

Well, I'm still trying to catch up on visiting many of you and I am making my rounds slowly but surely!  If I haven't visited with you yet, just give me a bit; I'm on my way!  I may have to make additional visits to catch up on everything you've done but I will!

I know I'll be spending most of the day with my aunt tomorrow so I wanted to leave you with a little project I completed, and wanted to share.  I just thought of this to call it, "Just A Little Sprinkle For The Beauty Of Fall", and it's a watering can filled with flowers and a note card:

After I put the can together, I painted it with Gold Lame color Smooch Ink and then covered it with yellow Stickles to give it a glossy almost metal kind of look.  To have it match the card, I covered the top handle, back handle, and the spout on the can with the same cardstock as on the card.  I didn't have autumn color flowers, and with this being a fall project, I lightly sprayed some yellow ones I had with: Peach Delight, Burnt Red, and Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist colors. 

I think this would make a nice table centerpiece as well as a gift!  I hope you all like it!

Well, I'll be back as soon as I can!!!

Here is yet another reason why I think you are such a wonderful person. Apologizing for not visiting blogs and working hard to visit everyone, considering all that you are going through. Special doesn't even come close to describing you. Your watering can is stunning and so well made. The matching card is the perfect companion. Such talent! Best, Curt
