My Love has a thing for lighthouses. He loves to visit them and read up on their history.
Here is one we visited at Port Isabel, Texas.
A few years ago I gave him a lighthouse for Father’s Day. It’s a decorative piece that stands about three feet tall. I think it’s just made of resin so it’s light and super cute. I cannot help but smile when I look out of our back door at night and see the little beacon light shine from across the yard.
Well it has seen better days so I just whipped out a little bit of the ole’ craft paint and touched it up a tad.
Here it is before in our back yard, faded by the sun:
About 15 minutes of time and a little bit of love it now looks like this:
Much better now. It’s actually one of the ONLY things that I have purchased for our back yard, everything else was either found or hand-me-downs! Even Mr. Frogger got a quick makeover! You guessed it, I found him on the curb way back when (he was previously green! as you can see on his feet)
I laugh when I see him because he always looks like he has something very important to tell me!
Back to our light house:
The blue is much brighter and hope it will make My Love happy to see it refreshed!
Two more days till our big luau partay! Now what else can I spruce up?
