{featured}

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to be featured on Design Sponge! I love their blog and I was so flattered that they'd post about my concrete garden spheres!
Thanks to everyone for their comments! It's moments like this that make my day!
Also, many of you have asked about how I got the concrete stepping stone out of the pan.
I
I also sprayed the baking pan with non-stick cooking spray (I suggest using an old pan) and when it dried, I just flipped it over and out it popped!
If you have more questions, feel free to email me!

Thanks for coming over to my blog and letting me know where you found that fabric! I googled some more and found lots of places that sell it, so thank you. I love your blog, and I will continue visiting and commenting. :o)

yaaaay! seriously how cool is that? love design sponge. you're awesome.

k, so maybe i talk about it like every time i comment, but really, i have got to have the reupholstery class. i dream of it sometimes. i seriously have like 5 chairs and one full sized settee just waiting for a makeover! when is it happening? i could supply like 80 friends to come too.

also, i do you or do you know anyone who would redo a full settee? i think it would give me a nervous breakdown. looking to spend less than a billion dollars or trade for photos. let me know if you (or anyone you know of!) would be up for it?

LOVE your concrete ball idea, and especially if they will get all mossy green over time with moisture! Too cute and will try it after this baby gets here!
