Welcome to our Wyoming blog. On this blog I have been sharing how we came to move here and the 'adventure' we have been on every since. We started with a hillside, and today (6 years later) are finally putting in some landscaping. We are by no means done. I hope you will come along on our adventure.

I also have 2 other blogs. Big Horn Mountain Creations show cases my quilting and other artistic adventures. Decorating my Tin Shack, is about creating a home thru decorating. Both are on the side bar, I hope you will stop by.

Paint, Plants and Dirt

Oh what a beautiful day it was yesterday.
I just had to take advantage of the wonderful weather.

So outside I went
with empty Nesquik, beans, dog food, and tomato sauce cans,
plus 3 cans of spray paint.

Lime green, yellow and teal.

Spray, spray, spray.
It really is a good idea to take off your rings when painting.
I got so jazzed about doing this job that I forgot.
What is interesting is normally I do not wear my rings
around the house, just to much to mess them up.
We had plans to go out on Sunday, so put them on and forgot 
to take them off.     Sigh.  
Good news.....the rings cleaned right up, good as new!

So after painting my cans, and myself, I began to plant.
Are these not cute.  Little cactus
Tomato plants
Aloe and Hens and Chicks
(Remember to click on the pictures to enlarge).
Next step is to add twine and little labels, these
are all being donated to a fund raiser here in our town.
I love how they came out.
Just to cute

God Bless you and this country.

Those came out so adorable! They are sure to sell quickly. Glad your rings cleaned up, too.
