we painted

We got out the brushes


We went wild with the paint + canvas


but who needs a canvas- find some sticks (inspiration here)


Spinning Round Colorful Arch
By my daughter



Here they are. Our painted sticks.


There is something extremely therapeutic about painting sticks- you can make a mess- there are no rules- and the end product-- bEaUtiFul.


Wash the brushes-it's back to reality.

Oh, I love those sticks! They're so beautifully natural... love 'em. Please come by and play with us at It's Playtime this week!

I love your house...your paintings...your joy.... and now your STICKS. Fabulous. Will you be putting them in a vase? Or hanging them on the wall? You could hang them horizontally between two tieback rods, for dish towels or bath towels. :) I'm getting ideas... as usual, when I visit your site.

Oh my, I think you've just combined two of Jackson's favorite things... sticks and painting! We must do this, he's going to think I'm the coolest, hahaha.
