Blogging has seriously made me more aware of my surroundings. I seem to notice things more.... colors... textures.... patterns. It's like my senses are more heightened or something.
And... now I always have my camera handy. Do you think people wonder what the heck I'm doing as I slam on my brakes in front of their house?
I've gotten to see some gorgeous fountains this week. For those of you that do not live in town... Kansas City is the "city of fountains".... bizarre I know....

Pay no attention to the dead foliage all around it.... spring has sprung people! It will be green soon! Yippee!
Do any of you have experience with painting fountains? Mine is obviously concrete. I want something to soak in it... not sit on top of it. So... I've been thinking of using Faux Effects water based Stain and Seals.... but am concerned about the water aspect.
***Update: I just found a Project Procrastinators Party over at The Inspired Room. The idea is to show a project you have been avoiding/delaying/stalling doing..... and GET TO IT! Nothing like project shaming to get you motivated. In 2 weeks we are all to display our completed project. Looks like I better get my research on!
