She Sent me What? {Repurposed Ceramic Growler Planter}

21 bloggers mailed each other thrift store stuff then had to use them!

Jen from JenniferRizzo.com formed this fun collaboration with a bunch of creative bloggers where we each sent and received a fun thrifted or found object in our home to another blogger.  Then we had to take that received thrifted item and add it to our decor.  Some of my favorite girls, The East Coast Creative girls had me and they sent me this whatchamacallit…what on earth would you do with it?  I think it is a gross between a growler and a planter.

Krylon Looking Glass “Joy” Vases

Krylon Looking Glass Joy Vases

Today I have teamed up with some other bloggers to showcase Krylon Looking Glass Mirror-Like spray paint.  It is my new favorite.  I had never used this spray paint before the last couple of weeks.  I first had fun doing a mercury glass technique for my last Krylon Christmas Floral Centerpiece.  And today I sprayed some old Jack Daniels bottles with it for a little Christmas vignette.
