A Little Bird Told Me...


I did not notice...


Today I was outside in the heat,
taking photos of a large number of items.


Some, I had painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint,


and others, I had revised 
with good old spray paint. 




Some I had found at garage sales,
and half-price day at a thrift store.

As I was gathering them up 
to bring them inside, 
I noticed a flock gathering.

Not birds of a feather, mind you,
but different kinds of birds.

A little faux wood bird...


looks nicer with a coat
of Oil Rubbed Bronze...


And these votive candle holder birds
from Dollar Tree look even more charming 
with a dry brushed coat of Old White.


I didn't photograph them before painting them.

Believe it or not, I don't think 
EVERY item I paint is blog worthy!

 However, I AM documenting
the number of items I paint 
with one quart of ASCP, 
just for my own curiosity. When I 
run out of Old White, I'll post 
about all the items I painted.

Word for the Day:
Ecclesiastes 10:20
Even in your thoughts, do not curse the king,
    nor in your bedroom curse the rich,
for a bird of the air will carry your voice,
    or some winged creature tell the matter.

So Cute How everything is birds,

I like to see how far my paint will go too. Let me know how many items you paint with your one quart of paint... That will be fun.

God Bless You,

With love to you!

PSALM 23

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD,
That's Relationship!

I shall not want,
This supply is!

MAKE ME WALK IN GREEN PASTURES,
This is rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters,
This is refreshing!

He restores my soul,
This is healing!

GUIDE ME FOR THE PATHS OF JUSTICE,
That's Guidance!

FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR NAME,
This is on purpose!

THOUGH I WALK THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH,
That's Testing!

I will fear no evil,
That's Protection!

Thou art with me,
That is fidelity!

YOUR STICK AND YOUR staff they comfort me,
This is discipline!

Prepare a table before ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES,
This is hope!

UNGE MY HEAD WITH OIL
That's Consecration!

And my cup runneth over,
That's Abundance!

SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY A follow me EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE,
This is a blessing!

AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
That's Security!

FOR LONG DAYS,
This is eternity!

May the Lord bless you and keep you!

I'd be happy to follow my blog will be an honor to your presence. Repay the same way with all Christian love.

In Christ,

***Lucy***
