Yes, my brushes will just about paint anything…..even cookies.

I am pretty sure between my husband and I ~ all our worldly goods have something to do with paint….and pretty much all of our clothing has splatters of paint as well. Between House Paint, Automotive Paint, Furniture Paint, Acrylics, Watercolors, Oils, Stains, Spray Paint….and if you want to throw in Pencils too, we’ve got it covered.

And now add Edible Paint into the mix!

The quilts, afgans and bedding are made to snuggle in.

And the yard is prepared for winter, clipping the Zinnia’s for seeds this year for sure.
