    Oh.my.gosh. Those newspaper hearts are killing me! I might not be able to wait until next Valentine’s. They could be fun summery banner, right?:)

      I think I’m going to make a heart banner with some hanging bud vases. Hearts are definately an anytime sort of thing :)

    Those paint cards are adorable and soooo easy to make. Not to mention they serve a purpose–no more fumbling with silverware in line at my summer cookouts! See you soon, Home Depot!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the painted cans!!! i rarely have cans – but i think i’ll have to find some friends who will save them for me! how cute on the patio table with slverware,napkins,veggies – anything in them!! thanks for sharing. my grandson has just learned to ride his bike without training wheels – i told him to ride all over the front yard – and kill the weeds!! so i won’t have to hula hoe them.!

    I agree….not as old as that couple, but it certainly does get better with age. :)

  9. Terri says:

    I LOVE the old couple…especially with their message, the newspaper hearts and the cans! Great fun and cheap ideas!

    LOVE the painted cans! I was just getting ready to buy some small planters for my front window…but now I’m just going to dig a few cans out of the recycle bin and paint them. Thanks :)

  11. Leigh says:

    I found the hearts cut out of paint swatches, then strung together for bunting…SOOO cute. I don’t think they care, they’re there to take. :))

  12. Aimee S. says:

    I follow you on pinterest. :) I adore that sweet older couple so much! I especially love the chalkboard. And what a great way to recycle cans!

  13. Melody says:

    Love the couple!:)

    I saw those old couple pictures earlier this week, they are so adorable! I’m going to set up a pinterest account now!

    I was going to spraypaint cans too for some of my teacher friends and my son’s teachers for National Teacher Day tomorrow but instead I have been wrapping them with yarn! I got that idea from a site linked to yours. My son picked out the flowers for the inside and I took a picture of him with a sign that says, “Happy Teacher’s Day” that we are going to clothes pin to each can. :)

  16. Oh…I kept thinking “this is my favorite photo” and then Id look at the next and think the very same thing all over again:) Love that elderly couple! So sweet:)
    Have a wonderful Monday!
    XO,

    So fun!

    I’m inspiration greedy I want it all :) But love the couple, so sweet!

    Home Depot is definitely watching me! I saw the Easter egg banner made from paint chip samples on Pinterest. I went to Home Depot and picked up about 30 – 40 cards. I felt bad BUT, at what point are we actually doing something wrong? I wondered what they would say/do if I offered to buy them. I also thought about contacting the paint company directly and asking if I could buy a box of them. I would seriously do it if they weren’t too expensive. Then I could craft guilt-free! Anyone in?
