Pitcher Full of Sunshine


Flowers By Bliss Ranch Daughters

 When I see a project I like from a fellow blogger that I actually think I can do.... I pin it to my "Stuff to Make" Pinterest board.  I may never get around to all the stuff I've got pinned, but it's fun when I do one. 


Like the above project from Jaime at Crafty Scrappy Happy.
When I read her post I thought HEY I can do that because I have the exact same stamps she used.  I've had mine for about 13 years - purchased them for making baby announcements when #6 was born and probably haven't used them since.

Now I just had to come across something suitable for stamping on.  

And if that something suitable happens to be a white tin pitcher similar to Jaime's well so be it.

I got out my stamps, (I really did, not sure why they aren't in the picture) and my Distress Ink stamp pad and thought about what to put on it.  

I know everyone uses You Are My Sunshine for things, but it is a song close to my heart.  

My dear daddy used to sing it all the time to my momma 
and I can't hear it or see the words without thinking of him.  
So...........

I also had another pitcher that I debated not painting because I sort of liked the faded rusty look it had, but I wanted the whites to match.  I had one letter R from my first failed attempt at using letter stencils. 

Both of the pitchers are in my kitchen window.  I used one for some fresh lilacs last week, and the other is holding some paper flowers my daughters have been making.

    I sing "You Are My Sunshine" to my kiddos all the time. My little guy starts dancing and smiling whenever I sing it to him. My daughter thinks I should add a little beat boxing to the tune to make it more "hip". She is six. How "hip" can a six year old be? And I had no idea she even knew what beat boxing was - besides it would surely end with me spitting all over myself.

    But I digress....You should do a tute on the flowers - those are really fun. Haven't seen any like that around blogland. They are now officially pinned to my own "awesome projects to make" board.

  11. I love Jamie's stamp art too!

    On a side note- can I borrow your daughters? I need to make a 100% paper mantle for 52 Mantels (no idea why I said yes to this) and I've ben trying, really I have. But the 3 year old and 4.5 year old are really cramping my crafting:)

  14. Oh Bliss, these are GREAT! I used to sing that song to my John when he was little, but he had a duck raincoat and boots that he wore ALL THE TIME, even in the house, so I sang "You are my duck." I miss my babies. Now I have to go cry for twenty minutes. Followed by a shot of tequila. At 7:45 in the morning.
    Dang hormones.

  19. I love it! That is such a sweet little project. Hmmm...I know I have stamps from my scrapbooking days. I may just have to pull them out & copy you!

  20. I love this! Now my mind is whirling about what I can do this on. Does that make sense? Horrible grammar but I'm on my first cup of coffee so please forgive me. :)

    I so love those flowers too! Ask them if they'll make a few for me. LOL

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  23. I love it! And that is one of my favorite songs, too. I used to sing it to my children while I rocked them to sleep.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's lucky, I just bought some stamps - I can 'steal' another idea !
    The pitcher looks great, and I love those flowers. You should get your daughters to guest post a tutorial !

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those pitchers are so great! And the flowers...AWESOME! I have a "To-Do" board on pinterest that is getting very long but these are SO worth adding. Flowers I can't kill!! yay

  26. Cute pitcher Bliss and I love the flowers your girls made!

    ReplyDelete
  27. They look fabulous! That's what I love so much about blogging, the sharing of great ideas. Now I'm going to have to pin YOU! (and the girls!)
    Thanks for the anniversary wishes!
    Hugs,

  28. Okay, you taunt me with those Bliss Ranch daughter's book page (or newspaper?) flowers and then tempt me with the pitcher (which I adore, by the way) ...

    ... and when will the Bliss Ranch Daughters show me how they made those amazing flowers? They are on my "to do" list to replace my cheesey fake flora and fauna (yep, I'm admitting that here and now ...)

    :)

  29. Sweet bouquet of flowers! I love that your dad sang that song to your mother. It's one of our youngest daughter's favorite songs, too.

  30. Love it! If I can ever locate my alphabet stamps, I'm going to do that! I'm Pinning this!

  32. I am with everyone else on this one ... Love the pitcher and the sweet memories of your parents. But also want to know when the tutorial is coming out on those adorable flowers! I think it will be the hottest trend like Boards and Batten! :)

  33. Great job on the pitchers, and I love a project that is simple like this one.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My sweet grandpa always used to sing that song to me. I can barely read your pitcher without getting misty. ;) Seriously, they're beautiful. Great job.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh Bliss, I love your stamped pitcher. Our daughter sang this song when she was little and we talk about it all the time. Maybe I can get her to make one for her dad - he was talking about it the other day. Thanks for the idea. Did you use individual letter stamps? And are they permanent on the pitcher? Love the paper flowers too! I have paper like that. Do you have the tutorial for them? So many questions - sorry, but you got me all excited!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love them, and the thought of your dad singing to your mom makes me smile!

    ReplyDelete
  37. yea, I wonder if all those young chicks that use you are my sunshine even know the tune, or all the words for that matter! This looks wonderful. You know I went to Debbie's newbie party when I first started blogging. Somehow I got the idea that you could only link up two times so I quit going after I used up my allotment. I think I will go back one more time to celebrate my half-year anniversary!

  38. How cute Bliss! It would have broke my heart to paint that rusty pitcher but it does look nice. Enjoy your evening, Gail

  39. Don't you love a simple craft! Love your lyrics - what a nice memory!

    And your daughters have some crafty talent like their mom!

  47. The pitcher looks great! I wouldn't have the patience or steady hand to stamp that whole song! Wow!!! Those flowers are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  48. You are incredibly productive. I must get busy and make some of the things on my Pinterest to do board.

    Love your pitchers!

  49. So cute Bliss! I used to sing You Are My Sunshine to my kids. It always calmed my oldest down, no matter what. We sang it so often that I made up a couple extra verses to I didn't have to repeat so often. Then, when my son (the youngest) was about 4, he was sitting on the floor in the livingroom one morning sniffling and starting to cry. I asked him what was wrong and he told me that "You Are My Sunshine" makes him sad and didn't want me to sing it anymore. I asked him why and he said that he didn't want to be taken away from me like in the song! Awww...so sweet! Love those kids!!

  50. This is such an adorable project. I need to create a board for projects I want to do around the house, and I also need to create one for art inspirations, or stuff that I want to paint! Excellent idea! RIght now I only have one pitiful board about home libraries. *sadface* My poor Pinterest account is so, so neglected!
