Pretty Frosted Vase

I love flowers and plants.  The only thing is, I kill all things green.  Well, not everything, cactus can usually survive me.  Anyway, my niece got me some pretty pink flowers.  I am not a pink person, but, it's Easter and pink is allowed.  

Here they are.

I did put them out for Valentines day remember?

Well, I wanted to use the flowers again, but, not in the same vase.  I don't own many vases and I wanted a special one for Easter without spending more money.  I remembered the paint I got at Michael's on clearance.  What a shock when I painted a picture frame thinking it was going to be a light pink and it was a pearl or frosted -- YIKES.....   But, I thought it would pretty on a vase and I wouldn't waste my paint or extra supplies for the Halloween apothecary jars.  ; )

It was a pretty frost, but, the pink is hard to see.

So, I gave it another coat of paint.

Can you see the pink shine?

In the right light, the pink is ever so soft.

I like it -- it's very feminine.  I might put in on my nightstand after Easter.

It goes well with my little egg basket and bunny too.

Hoppy Easter.
