I came across this little plaque at Family Dollar and you know why it caught my attention, dontcha?!?!
If you've hung around me much at all,
you know I ♥ the word HOPE.
You probably know how much I adore cardinals, too, right?
Well, I snatched this little cutie up for $1.....
yes, ONE DOLLAR!
I knew it needed a little makeover so it would be more at home at our house, so I dug through my stash of acrylic paints and went to work. The hardest part was painting the wing on the bird because it was actually a picture of a bird's wing under a piece of plastic.
Here's what it looks like after a little sprucing up.....
It's so sweet now, at least to me!
And, that wing that was difficult to paint over.....
well, I like how it looks all feathery.
Nothing a little paint and Sharpie marker can't make look better!
Thanks so much for your prayers and concern and comments and e-mails this week.
Y'all are AWESOME-sauce!
I'd LOVE it if you'd join in our linky today.
HOPE everybody has a wonderful weekend!
