  1. What a great idea! It makes it look so different. Amazing what a little spray paint can do. I just used Catalina Mist this's such a beautiful color. Megan

  2. Great idea! New follower from the the Networking Blog Hop!

  3. I love the two-toned basket. I'm going to try that and tie a ribbon around it where the colors change! White is always a great go-to color. Found you via the blog hop and am linky following.

  7. Hi Claire! Bronwyn here from Queen B Creative Me. Thanks for you comment on my Heart Shaped maps. Hubby and I both did our undergrads at Western and went to Althouse for Teacher's College together. What year did you graduate? Are you teaching in London now?? I grew up in Exeter but now live in Milton. I taught kindergarten of 11 years, but now I am a music teacher. I just took a snoop around your blog. You have great projects! I am a new follower and look forward to seeing what else you come up with in the future.

  8. I'm stopping in from the blog hop. I'm following. I host a weekly link party on Wednesdays and I'd love for you to link up your latest posts. You can find me at

  9. This makes a very pretty look with the paint, creative idea!

  10. That turned out really cute! I have a whole shelf of baskets that could use a facelift!

  17. I haven't tried the Catalina Mist yet, but I'm dieing too! I really like the pretty pastel blues I've seen on the mason jars. I'm looking forward to trying it one of these days.
