Fall Flower Pots

We painted flower pots.

Mine were originally going to be for a gift exchange, but I ended up not going so I could pack for our brilliant fall trip. So, Happy Fall to me.

{Turns out I love them so I would have had a hard time parting with them, anyway.}

The kids painted some pots and decided they would be a great birthday gift for their Mammie.

Filling them with flowers turned out to be just as fun as painting them. Both of the kids were very thoughtful about which flowers were included in their arrangements.

"Oh!!! That's beautiful!"

"Don't you think that's beautiful?!
It is going to make Mammie's heart beat so full!"

BBD had a thorough screening process. Each plant was closely inspected

and had to be approved by James before it made the cut.

"It's full! It's so full up!"

CB decided that the flower pot needed an "alien face". Who am I to disagree?

It is complete with two green eyes that are "twins" and a blue one for good measure, rosy "cheeks", and a bejeweled crown head band that goes all the way around.
