I found out about the sale late and I didn't have much time to get things together this week, so I decided to simplify matters by focusing soley on a garden decor theme.
I had been meaning to try out a homemade chalk paint recipe on some terra cotta pots after being inspired by so many of you talented bloggers, so the time crunch forced me into getting them painted. For those of you who are unfamiliar with chalk paint (not chalkboard paint, which I also used) or may have been wondering how to make your own, I combined two tbs of unsanded grout added to a cup of paint for my recipe. I used the robin's egg blue color that I have become obsessed with as of late and also a creamy white. I like the quick drying time and "distressed" texture. My husband did add dark stain to the pots to seal them because I didn't have any dark wax.
After the sale I moved the unsold items to the booth, and I had a really hard time not bringing most of the pots and things home to enjoy, but since I can barely recognize my home due to the mess of paints and projects strewn about, I refrained. I am only asking $3 and $4 for the pots so I think they won't last long anyway.

Have a great weekend everyone!
