From Garish Gold to Perfect Pink!

This year I vowed I would get rid of any Christmas items I haven't used in recent memory. So there I was, the day BEFORE Hallowe'en, going through my boxes of tree ornaments, culling and purging like I was on "Hoarders" or something!

And there were so many! I'd been collecting ornaments since high school - and let's just say, it's been A LONG time since high school!

I had a ton of cheap plastic baubles and balls leftover from our early married years when we bought all of our ornaments from Wal-Mart in sets of 64 or something!

Here are the best ones - garishly golden pinecones and cherubs.
Hmm...these just aren't my style anymore. Time to get rid of them...or maybe.....
I can just hit them with a can of flamingo pink spray paint! Oh yeah!

After 3 good coats on either side in the fresh air of my garage, these lovely little beauties appeared!
I'm in love. A little pretty, and a little girly and a whole lot kitschy, but perfect to go with my new Christmas Decor theme for 2011 - RED, PINK, BLUE & GREEN.

My daughter thinks her mother is a genius.
"What else can we paint pink, Mommy?"

(Speaking of pink, do you see the rosy little cheeks on her? Couldn't you just eat her up? )
Thanks for the visit. Stop by again soon. I'm sure I'll be doing MORE CHRISTMAS craft projects VERY soon!
