I'm having a love affair with spray paint!

Due to some distraction from the spray paint aisle at Lowes and the Thrift Store, progress on my granny squares has slowed down just a bit! 
I have been wanting to make some of these little desert stands for some time.  After finding some really cheap candlesticks at the Goodwill I couldn't stand it.  The vintage plates are some that were given to me.
Aren't they adorable!!  Needless to say I've got more to do.  Just waiting on the weather to cooperate.
I found this wooden compote at our local thrift shop for $7 bucks, it was screaming for me to carry it home and spray it down!  LOL!  Does it not perfectly compliment my squares?  I am thinking that I will crochet a six sided granny to go in the compote.
I am thinking maybe a couple more rounds and I will stop.  I plan on using this mat in the middle of my kitchen table. 

Let me share just one more thrift store find before I go!

SCORE!  Y'all know how much I love owls.  I had to have him.  He's totally vintage and looks perfect in my kitchen!
He even inspired me to make oatmeal cookies to go into his little belly.  LOL!!

That's it for now!
