Swingers and cones

Hehe. I knew you would think that. But hey, that's ok. I probably would have thought that too. lol

Anyway. My FIL is a huge UT Vols fan. The kind of fan who has a whole room of nothing but Vol stuff. And of course it doesn't stop there. It is all over the house too and outside the house. Well as you can guess, some of the outside decorations would eventually get weathered and faded. So he asked me to re-paint a couple of these for him. They are sitting on little swings and they hang outside.

I give you the before Vol girl and boy.




And the after.



Quite a difference huh? I told you I had been doing other things. They are two sided, so it took twice as long. But I like painting stuff, so I had fun doing it.

And then there are the cones. I got a package in the mail today! She posted that some of her stash needed a good home and I helped Heather de-stash. Man, I didn't realize just how much there were on those cones until I got them here. Thank you so much! I promise to put them to good use. Already thinking of what I can make with them!
