So you wonder where do I get all my energy and creativity from? Well It is genetics baby! I mentioned to you long ago, I recall my Mom changing curtains, place mats, rugs and everything else she could under the sun! My sister was not passed down this gene…however she is very bright and is has creative thoughts I must
say. She always adds a good idea to the mix. I thought I would share some of the things my Mom has been doing lately. I just thought this was so clever, and you too can do the same.
She painted her plain ole garden girl! Look what else she did to her garden peeps…..
Well he just think he is all that now doesn’t he? Well he is now…
And that little garden girl is looking all purty too….she is checking him out! “Mom are you starting an outdoor garden dating site”?
WeLL I just thought this was great inspiration for your plain ole garden statues. Have a wonderful Sunday. I am enjoying my sister, Phil and Gracie’s visit so much!~They came in Friday and leave tomorrow.:(
REMINDER: My BEFORE AND AFTER PARTY WILL BE THIS WEDNESDAY!!~ Can’t wait to see you all there.
GARAGE SALEN PARTY GOING ON HERE

Oh Debbie! They turned out just great! Love it! Much more interesting for sure. Their too young for dating…just puppy love!
That is a great metamorphose… Well done job by your Mom. Love the garden-dating-service. Where did you inherit that humor from?!
Sunny greetings from Georgia,
Holy Cow!! I never would have thought of that, how cute!!!
Way to spice up a garden statue! Way to go Debbie’s mom!!!
I love it. What fun! I have two giant mice that I keep out on my front porch. They get a new paint job about every other year. Sure makes a difference!
Thank God for your mom-COLOR!!!! I love the stuff Linda does, she always has HAPPY stuff going on 🙂

Oh how cute. I don’t know that I can paint that well, but your mom’s are just fabulous. What a great idea. Hugs, Marty
Hi Debbie! Oh, these are darling! And I was just about to ask you what vitamins you take because you seem to be the energizer bunny! But you can’t help it, it’s passed on! Shoot! I need some more energy!! 🙂
Thanks so much for popping in to see my little tiny kitchen! Love your visits.
be a sweetie,

Debbie, those are just too cute for words. I did not know your mom was so artistic. She made those look so much better!!
those figures are so cute. i think i got my creativity from my aunt, my mum is very practical as are my sisters, but like your sisters they have so many qualities, that i dont possess
They look so cute & so much better. It’s amazing what paint can do.
So thats where you got your talent from! 😀
Your mom’s other kids are adorable 😀 Could you give a clue about what type of paint or glaze she used?
Have a good time yall!

(Wow. sorry about all my deleted comments. I kept spelling my name wrong. Can’t have that! LOL!)
I love the way your mom’s garden “grows”! (When someone paint-gardens this splendidly, what colour does that make her thumb? Truly, it’s gotta be more than the typical green!)
The first statue pictured reminds me of the effect one gets when they hand-watercolor a black and white photograph. Very beautiful indeedy, Debbie’s Mom!
P.S. Although I’m still brainstorming for B&A Wednesday, I’m still planning to make it a go. See you then!
Oh they are just precious lil’ garden people Debbie!
Have a wonderful week.

Oh my! Soooooo beautifully painted! Your Mom is brilliant! genetics are awesome!
No wonder you are so talented, Debbie. You took after your mom. I wonder if you know what type of paint is used to paint on glass bottles. I am opening a store downtown, just a room inside a store and I would like to paint on my many bottles and sell them too…Christine

Well those garden statues are just a canvas waiting to be painted! I have a fairy out there that better run tonight as the paint brush is coming. I have something posted that would work for your b4 and after this Wed. Hope I can remember? Questionable.
Together We Save
Wow – these are so cute!!
They look much better after she painted them…the desire to repaint everything must be genetic!!
You know what I think of your mom!! I already know how creative she is, but she is also the sweetest thing ever:-) She is always so thoughtful and sweet, and always has great tips. But you already know all that!! She is a doll. I think she needs to start her own blog!

Very cute transformation. I was thinking of painting one of my garden gals and you have inspired me to get painting. Thanks for sharing.
Very cute. I wish I had the crafty genes in my family.
omgosh i thought it was the top of a monkeys head at first lol:)had no idea you took my pics off facebook page .But anyhow thank you all for the sweet comments .Well for those that want to know how i did it i used craft paint.I did blend colors to make what colors i wanted to do the distressed part on the boy i dry brushed over with watered down white paint.To do the little girl on the fountian i watered the pinks and greens to look like water color .Then i spraid clear paint a little heaver on her to give her a glazed look.Iam working on another little girl on a bench with her cat in a basket she will look like water color also .Mabey Debbie will take that of my facebook lol.I see why Debbie loves bloging you gals are oh so sweet thanks again.Love you Deb xxxooo

What a Great idea to livin those garden pieces up! Those things are on clearance some places now, so I’ll have to start looking. Since I haven’t sold my house yet I decided to start working on it again. What the heck, enjoy it while I have it & I can take most of my decorations to the next house.
Your ideas are so easy and fun. I see these post and actually think ‘I can do that!’ 🙂
Thanks for always sharing, Debbie!
What a great friend you are! 🙂
Your mom did a great job! She really brought life to those kids 🙂 Too cute.
How cute – Your Mom did a great job on them. Thanks for your compliment on the jewelry.

Oh how cute! your mom reminds me of my mom. If she can paint it, she will! I love it!
These are CUTE! I realized right away your mom was using ceramic paints. See, My mom did ceramics when I was growing up and I helped paint some of them. Unfortunatly I cannot do painting anymore…the smells really give me massive headaches. If there is ever a no VOC or low VOC paint for ceramics, metals and suchlike I’d love to know it! Otherwise its a mask on my face for me 🙁
Anyhow…forgive me for rambling on…I think these garden Peeps are just the Bees Knees!

Thats so cool that your mom has taught you all this creativeness (lol). Sometimes color is better than neutral. I can recall the same memories, my husband now makes fun of me because I change things around so often according to the month, the upcoming holiday or just for the heck of it. I definately inherited the themed christmas tree decor gene. My husband hates it…lol
Your mom did a great job. Painting them gave them so much more character. I know your glad you got the high energy gene. I’m sure you two have a ball together!
Hi. I am a new follower. I love your you tube video! Your site is so neat. I really enjoy seeing your creativity. You have a handsome family, too. =0)
I hope you have a wonderful day filled with Joy.
