Eagle Eyes

You probably already know this, but the best time to find something is when you are not looking for it. 

In the past, I have passed along the hint that this is a good time of year (spring, with summer on the horizon) to look for cheap plastic goods to use as stencils.  Remember these paper plate holders I got a few years ago:
I have not even been looking for more, but when I was at the grocery store this week, my eyes were naturally drawn to a section with said cheap plastic stuff for summer fun. There I found these paper plate holders. Just too good to pass up - especially at 2 for a dollar (at Kroger).

I haven't had time to play properly, but could not resist giving a quick spray when I got them home just to see!

I see some spray fun in my future!

Well, you know where I'm headed this morning. Love the flowers. Maybe my Kroger will have different designs. :-)

great idea, Pat! thanks. Kroger's gonna wonder why these paper plate holders are such big sellers this year!
