{Confessions Of A Metalhead!}

I have to admit that I was somewhat surprised when I saw that sweet little
innocent Jami was having Metal Saturday ...ok, maybe shocked is more like it! With visions of Metallica and Iron Maiden jamming in my head,
I read on a bit more and...oh, silly me...wrong metal! ;}

I was galvanized into action...
{I'm sorry...I just had to say if...I am weak... ;}

I do now confess to the things I have willingly and freely,
without fear of bodily harm and under no duress, done to metal...
like to little creamer white.

And this old teapot...all patinalicious....

PINK! I can't ask for forgiveness...because I do it again in a heartbeat! ;}

And these metal planters from I-I-I- Ikea!
Never even noticed if they had plain silver, once the pink was in sight!
{Do I need to be reprogrammed?!}

But, the silvery, metaly thing is there...has always been there...
lurking...which I think is why I am compelled to take nice, simple,
plain objects like this once-bisque eggcup...and glitter it all up in

Or encourage my sister to buy this table...
I didn't even know who I was that night...I mean, what was I saying?
Buy a table that's not white...or at least pastel?
Had I just popped out of a metal pod?

And why did I buy these galvanized pots? Like I am gonna grow anything?
NOT! I am in no way a giver of life...not even to plants...they die when they
see me...I am the Stalin of gardeners! But they were too cute to resist...they
can hold stuff...I LOVE things that hold stuff...I do tend to have A LOT of

And this crate/bottle holder thing...while it is cute...the real reason I wanted
it was because of the handles {follow the arrow}. They remind me of the
handles on an old milk jug we had growing up...that we used for seating...
{there were a lot of us!}

And then came the chicken wire basket...and, yes, I do still fight the
urge to paint it white...but I have resisted, thus far.
One day at a time, as they day at a time! ;}

Please be sure to stop by Jami's today for some head bangin' metalicious fun!

  1. I never once thought of painting a silver pot...but that's a grand idea! I love all things metal in my home too...the contrast is what I like the most...I tend to paint anything galvanized myself...even if it's just to add a few polka dots!

  2. Everything is so pretty. I like to leave things galvanized but I am not fond of rusted silver and I don't want to polish it so your pink teapot is darn cute! I mostly love your new blog banner because I have not been here in a the roses

  3. It's a happy day to see what you are up to! LOVED the newpaper flower post and your little llama doesn't look that happy with it's pretty necklace!

    I must admit... "heavy metal" caught my attention.
    I've been tempted many times to paint over a few galvanized pails.
    Now that I've seen your pretty in pink revel, I'll give it a go.

    I hope your weekend is filled with a splendid surprise.
    Sweet wishes,
