              I made these flowerpots for two of my childhood friends' birthdays which coincide in the same month.  We've known each other since we were 5yrs old and last night we convened for one of our quarterly "Girls' Nights" where we gather at one of our houses, bring two appetizers each and a birthday gift for whoever's birthday is near.  There's four of us and we put our jammies on and just gab and eat and have a little wine. 

            These really weren't as difficult as I thought they'd be to make.  I used the instructions from Heaven's Walk and had a little hands on tutorial from my friend, Maureen .  The hardest part was standing back and looking and trying to make the pots appear aged.  Hard to do when you've just painted them!  I found that a sea sponge, once again, gave me better control and I just kept layering greys (two tones) and watered down whites onto the white-washed pot.    The frames of the lettering were courtesy of The Graphics Fairy, but the cracks, lovingly handpainted onto the pots, are courtesy of me!  Hahaha! 

            For instructions on how to make these, visit Heaven's Walk or Its All Connected for a step by step tutorial!  If I can follow them, anyone can, because we all know what a Spaz I am! 

           I gave these to my friends last night and I think they liked them!   I do!

I love the candles in the wine caddy, wish I'd thought of that as I've passed up several cool looking wine holders because I don't drink wine! And the flower pots with the names are darling!
