it's a blue kind of day

I've been feeding my craft obsession in small doses in between a few larger projects I'm working on. I can't wait to show you a couple of things that are being upcycled, but for now these will have to do.

I found these blue and white plates at my local Goodwill for about a dollar a piece. The bases were found at various stores, for about 50 cents a piece. I only had to spraypaint one of the bases and it came out splendidly. I'm really happy with the mix of black bases and the blue and white theme. I used E6000 glue to secure the bases to the plates. It's stinky, but it works!

And here we are waiting for the rain to stop. Sadie's going a bit stir crazy. She even attacked the rag I was using to wipe off her feet after a potty run. That rag didn't stand a chance, she's a chewer.
