Clay Pots

Well hello Spring!  So happy you have finally arrived.  And what better way to celebrate the first day of this lovely season then with some mini clay pots:
I had painted these an aqua blue a couple of years ago but I decided I might like white a little better.  I gave each a few coats of spray paint and then added some Frenchy touches.  For the first one, I used a Paris sticker and a faux pearl embellishment.  I used this same image for my lastest batch of Starbucks bottles.  I just love it!
For this one, I used another great Frenchy one - courtesy of The Graphics Fairy.  This is also a sticker I made using Avery label sheets.  It curls a little but just keep pressing down on that sucker and it will finally get the message.  And can't forget the burlap.
This one is kind of a do-I-love-it or do-I-hate-it one.  I used the Mod Podge/tissue paper method to decoupage the French script onto it. Then I used some Distressed Ink to age it a bit and tied some twine on.  I'm still not sure if I love it or hate it.  Guess we'll see if it grows on me.
Here they are on a shelf in the tea room.  Not sure how long they will stay as it gets VERY hot in there and I'm sure the Avery label paper will curl even more...
