Happy Sunday to you all!
We had a busy weekend!~ Hope you all enjoyed yours as well. I managed to squeeze in a quick project.
Painting a terra cotta pot with Annie Sloan chalk paint.
Been a while since I picked up a paint brush. I had some Annie Sloan Chalk paint left in my favorite color
I bought this planter at Walmart. Too plain jane for me.
Again, trying to incorporate more Live greenery in the home…
succulents are hard to kill. I hope!
The other day after Mike and I had our taxes done, we hit a few antique places in the area we were in.
I found this gorgeous rooster runner for $11.00.
I really love it! Has all my favorite colors!
I am really hoping this little garden tag brings me luck…
I decided the pot needed some words as well…
Out came my Annie Sloan chalk paint and stencils.
You may hop on over to Shades of Amber to see some fun new fresh colors!
Can you guess what this says in Spanish?
I gave you a hint already!
I have to tell you a quick funny…
Remember my pallet sign I did a few weeks ago?
When I google how to say Home Sweet Home in Spanish,
this is what came up…
apparently, what it really says Is HOUSE sweet HOUSE…
Hogar is Home in Spanish. Oh well, see you can’t always get the right answers on google.
House sweet House works for me too.
I sure hope this Spanish word is the one I meant to say.
Have a great day.

I never thought about using ASCP to paint a pot! Great idea, Debbie! Your translation adventure made me smile! Do you know how many times my French students tried that one on me with homework? lol Happy Sunday!…hugs…Debbie
Total coincidence, but I used my leftover Duck Egg Blue to transform an old planter last week. You know what they say…great minds think alike!!
Debbie I love the way that planter turned out, such a pretty color and your new runner is beautiful!
Kathy@ Pearls in Paradise
Love the planter transformation! Thank you for the newbie party! xoxo Kathy

Thanks for hosting, Debbie!! You don’t know how much us “newbies” appreciate it!! 🙂
That planter looks gorgeous in that color., pretty runner and a great price on the copper mold. You had a great finds day!
Casa is a word that everyone seems to know so MY mind would automatically say … Home Sweet Home. The other way, I bet you would get a lot of questions on what it meant 🙂 Great idea with the pot too … I may have to copy your idea 🙂
I know Bj, I agree…I actually don’t care for the Hogar.or whatever it is LOL! Like I said either way, you get the gist!
Love the planter!

This is so so cute! I really love it, it looks like you paid so much for it! You are very talented my friend!! Jen
Very nice, Debbie. You come out with the neatest idea…Christine

Love the pot and plantings! Roosters too! Back at the newbie party!
Linda @ A La Carte
Love that painted pot! I have some ugly pots that would look great painted! Thanks for the inspiration!
Love the pot! The blue is lovely!
Love the color on the planter and cute cute runner. I don’t know Spanish either so I would not have known the difference anyway. I did kill my succulents last year!
That rooster runner is gorgeous! What a find! With all your cute roosters you’ve got me looking at roosters when I go shopping now, even though they wouldn’t really go with anything I have, lol! 🙂
Happy growing, Debbie. Love the pot.
Oooh I love the look of the planter now…you just add magic to everything! 🙂
Good luck Debbie with all your new greenery:) That jello mold was a great bargain. I think I want it. LOL

Your pot looks gorgeous! Provence is such a pretty color! I think the yellow flowers are Coreopsis. They are pretty easy to grow and need lots of sun. They are perennials, so they will die off after summer is over and come back in the Spring. Cut off the dead flowers(called “deadheading”) when they fade. When you get tired of them in your house, just plant them in a sunny location outside.

Your painter planter looks great!
Hey Debbie, great idea painting your pot with ASCP..it looks wonderful. Lovin the stencil too! Many thanks for hosting the Newbie party. Jane
I love what you did with the planter. Great rooster finds. The runner is really beautiful.
This is a beautiful post, Debbie! I’m loving your fabulous finds, especially the rooster runner and the cute cute garden tag! Loving the Provence paint on your terracotta planter, I really like the shape of your planter… need to stop by at Walmart very soon:) Your house always looks gorgeous with beautiful sunshine streaming in.Need to finish up on our taxes as well.. Thanks for stopping by!Have a great week ahead. Hugs,Poppy
Get this girl her own show on HGTV!!!! You rule.
LOL…you are funny Michele!
I have to try that chalk paint sometime. I love the finish. We wouldn’t have known those Spanish words if you hadn’t told us. LOL. Have a great week, Debbie. Thanks for hosting the newbie party.

Lovely little burst of spring! Thanks for hosting
Great idea, Debbie! Your pot turned out really cute. 🙂 Thanks for hosting this week’s Newbie party.
What a Qt jello mold! Great find for you =) The planter looks great in it’s new paint. LOVE the color. Completely transforms it. Looks like lots of great links this week… Can not WAIT to start the highlight posts =)))
Working on the button now…I can’t wait either Shannon.
I love it and the color too! Neat to use spanish words!
LOVE that rooster runner! I really is beautiful. With a planter as pretty and cheerful as yours, surely those succulents will thrive. You’ve given them very clear instructions in both English and Spanish….and I agree with BJ and the others…casa works and sounds better.

Te Amo Su Pot! 🙂 I think I said that right.. Thanks for hosting!
Hi Debbie, I am going to have to try the chalk paint on teracotta. Your planter looks great and I sure like the lettering you added. Thanks for hosting.
I would have never thought of painting the pot. Looks fabulous. We have some of those yellow flowers potted outside, they come back every year. We bring the pot indoors during heavy freeze times. Good luck.
Debbie, Love the planter transformation, I hope they grow too!
The translation sign is funny, but it adds character! Thanks again for hosting the newbie party! I notice a lot more traffic coming my way from these newbie linky parties 🙂
Me encanto el pote de terracota y la mejor parte era que decia Crecer!!!! ok, insert translation here..” I loved the terracota planter and the best part was that it said Grow!!! You are so creative Debbie..You’re probably tired of hearing it, but you are and your are not afraid of taking risks, no matter the language! =0) Abrazos!!!

Thank you for hosting this newbie party! It is so nice to be promoted as a new blogger! Love your terracotta planter – btw – I am headed to Walmart now for some succulents. I have a “black thumb” – I heard you can’t kill these plants (let’s hope!) Missi

The planter turned out very nice! I am also envious of the rooster runner! VERY pretty!
I think your quote is probably the “Americanized” version 😉 since I was able to better understand what you were WANTING to say. I had 2 years of Spanish in high school, but that was nearly 3 decades ago! EEK!
Love the HOUSE Sweet HOUSE! And the color of your planter, Provence? Beautiful. I linked up my new post on my still newbie blog…. but computer malfunction (hopefully not operator error) caused the picture link to go a.w.o.l.
Don’t know if I can fix it!

Thanks for hosting, Debbie. Love your Annie Sloan pot.
I’m so doing this to some pots this weekend. Thanks for always inspiring me.
Love the rooster runner. I’m attracted to roosters and hens, I should of started a collection.
I need one of those “grow” signs! LOL I really like how you changed the pot. Original!
Just want to let you know that your newbie party is appreciated! I look forward to meeting other newbies!!
ALSO….I love your planter!! I am a sucker for tiffany blue!
Thanks for hosting, Debbie! I adore that rooster runner. And, too funny about Google. I have been double checking myself about things I search on the internet!!!
Hi Debbie,I love your rooster runner! Your terra pot looks great!!
That’s such a pretty shade of blue. It goes great with the yellow flowers.
Hello Debbie! You made me laugh with your Spanish! Well, I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As you now know, House and Home are like Casa and Hogar here. And, speaking about your wonderful pot, do you want it to sound like a hope? or an order? because in that case you should say “Crece”. Crecer, with “r” is like saying “to grow” for you. But don’t care about all this, you can ask me whenever you want to know a word in Spanish. But……please excuse me for my poor English!!! I try my best. Thank you por the party!
Besos (Kisses) from Argentina. Silvina.
I think I need to take a Spanish coarse on line LOL!~ I am ordering my plant to grow…so crecer would be correct:)
Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces
