Feeling Tropical...

This is a fun little project 
the man of the house 
recently prompted me to do...

What started out to be..."let's paint the front walk way"...
turned into...
"how about a koi pond!"



So there you have it...
a koi pond that doesn't need fresh water...


the local raccoons can't eat the koi...



 ...they don't count as more pets to feed...



...and I can just paint the leak out if it 
becomes worrisome!


I have to admit it was pretty fun...
and the neighbors enjoyed watching it day by day
come to life.

I still have room to add to it...
a dragonfly here and there

or maybe even inspired to add 
a sea turtle here and there...


once we get back from our tropical get away to the Kona Coast!

We fly out tomorrow...

Aloha
Enjoy

  1. Hi Denise~~~
    What a fun idea. Anyone can walk on water. ..but don't step on the fish! I am currently doing some painting with ASCP. My first table and it looks so cute in Scand Pink. Now to try the blending as you did with the sage and cream. Excited to see the outcome. I will share soon.

    I can't seem to get into the blogging mood but I would love to share your post and create a link back to you. Please let me know if you are OK with that?

  2. As I was posting my comment I noticed that you have your privacy thingy turned on. Where I have to enter 2 words to prove I am a real person before I can post my comment. I know that this turns lots of folks off when they comment. I turned mine off on my blog. You may want to consider that too.
