Stencilling Bees on ...

BEE Stencilled Additions 

Containers were found at a Garage Sale just down the street. One of the GS signs said 'I follow Marie Kondo'.

The round blank wooden circle was from the Thrift Store.

Added a hook on the back of the round wooden blank, gave it a 'wash' of CeCeCaldwell Vintage White plus three additional thinned coats.

Used the Muddaritaville Bee stencil and CeCeCaldwell Beckley Coal chalk-like paint for the plaque.

Martha Steward (Michaels) Bee themed sticky backed stencils were used on the handled containers with CeCeCaldwell Beckley Coal chalk-like paint.

Waxed the finished items using ASCP Clear Wax and polished.

Picked five roses and choose the backyard trees for background.

Honey season - my blogging friend Linda has been blogging about learning to be a bee-keeper. 

Bee's have been busy collecting the fixings to make honey - in my side yard one let me take a picture.
