This is a follow up to my previous post featuring a few of my "Spring makeover" projects. If you'd like to read that post before continuing with this one, you can click on the following link:
This is the garden cart I mentioned in that post ...
The cart had several layers of paint, some of which was chipping off, and definitely needed some attention. After vigorously scraping the cart with a wire brush, I sprayed it with the primer coat.
I was fortunate to have an excellent little helper ... our granddaughter Avery Grace, who is out of school this week for Spring Break.
I didn't let her do a lot of the spraying because it was very windy yesterday, but at least she got to spray a little, which is always the "fun part" of a makeover project.
Here is our garden cart with its bright new sunshiny yellow paint beside the newly-painted turquoise bench, whose transformation was shown in my previous post ...
I haven't gotten any new spring flowers for it yet, because we're still having cold nights with temperatures in the lower 30s [there was frost this morning!]. I'll share pictures of it when I finish decorating it ... hopefully, soon!
Avery is eight and in the third grade, and every time I see her it seems as if she has grown several inches. Every minute we spend with her is precious, and it means so much to me that she still wants to spend her Spring Break with us. I cherish this time with her, and hope she will have some happy memories that will be with her forever.
We are going to meet her mommy and daddy and little brother Maddox today at the Jackson Zoo. It should be a fun, springlike day, and I hope to capture some sweet memories with my camera.
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."

Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
