Plum Cottage Paint Party

Good afternoon Friends ~ I've finally finished editing photos from Saturday. I am so thankful for the loving hearts and helping hands of some of my church family.

Gutter cleaning and sanding happened first.

Painting away.



Love the photo below of the little one (3 1/2 years young) helping with her pregnant Mommy.
















Photo collage below by Ann G. She took photos of artsy scenes that she liked.








One Happy FlowerLady ~ I was painting around the water pipes for our outdoor shower. :-) 
That's it for now. Thank you all for your kind comments. I feel truly blessed.
