Everybody is lovin' this stuff and I can't wait to get my hands on this paint and try it out myself. I have a mirror that I found at a flea market last year...it will be my first victim...then I will be painting a coffee table and end tables that are in my cottage (more on that later). So do you want to know how you can WIN? Okay here we go...

Oh my...I almost forgot to list all the goodies...silly me!
1. Two quarts of paint...get this...you get to pick what colors you want...yippee!!
2. One can of wax.
3. One wax brush.
4. One clay tag...you can find these in her Etsy shop.
5. One clay knob...you can find these in her Etsy shop.

Now for my weekly NIFTY THRIFTY item that I have to share with all of y'all...really it's Mr.CC's item (maybe I can take credit...since it was my idea...what you think?) Back in January while Haley and I were planning her wedding, the idea of having a 9 foot wooden cross with a floral swag on it at the alter was the WOW factor that we were looking for...so guess what...Mr.CC made this 9 foot cross (this man would do anything for his girls). So you must be saying to yourself...why is it so thrifty? It's thrifty because the wood that he used was FREE...he was given this huge trailer of free wood a couple of months ago. Since the cross was FREE...I didn't think he would care that I spent a lot on the floral swag...it all equal out...well kinda. After the wedding was over, we donated the cross to our church and we are looking forward to seeing it again on display...maybe another bride will use it. The party is rolling...so let's all link up and do some partyin'!!!
                                                 Glad you came...now be sure
                                                    to invite all your friends,
                                                                 Linda
                                      Now didn't this FATHER OF THE BRIDE
                                                do an outstanding job on this
                                                         DIY project?
                                        Any of you remember my $10 ferns that
                                      I shared with y'all back in the Spring? Well
                                                here are a couple of them.
                                            Our bride was happy with it...so that
                                            made the FOB and MOB happy!!
Her flowers arrived and they were just
perfect...what a relief!
You can view wedding pics here and
bridal pics here.
                                            Don't forget to enter........
                                                   and I wish you lots of luck!!!
