It's time to post!!! Hurray!

I just deleted the chatting here for the photos to be at the top of the thread. That was a lesson learned. For the next contest, I will start a new thread for the photos or we can simply post at the end of the chatting.

I'm eliminated from this contest but had to participate!

Old red flip flops painted with pots to match. Acrylic paints, pots glued to flip flops. I still need to plant them.

As I was painting them, I really thought it would be fun to set the flips flops all by themselves in the garden.

Thumb of 2011-07-24/Boopaints/1c7927

Then I thought...I'd like to wear them. I think the paint would wear off.

Fake plantings just to show how they will look....I'm going to nail them to my front entrance with cement nails.

And, a High Heel shoe planter ... how cute! Love the ladybugs!


Y'all are so creative ... since I am not talented and can never think of how to do decorate like this I will have to be a copycat!

I used to have old pink crocs and green but they went to the thrift store before I got a chance to plant them.

Naaah ... I'm not entering the contest. My brown Croc's are not painted or decorated for art ... but maybe next time! Big Grin
