Paintin' on the Planter Box

Walked outta the Jackson Resale Factory with this very large planter for a whoppin' eight bucks!  I didn't even dicker.  I know, hard to believe.  But I didn't.  Promise.  It already had little drain holes and everything.  All it needed was dirt and flowers!

And some fancifying with stencils, of course! :)  Now if you can believe this, I started this project like I do most projects (painting canvases, cooking supper, etc.) which would be with absouletly no plan in mind.  Which might be why the style of lettering I used doesn't at all match the style of design on the sides....  But hey.  So I start out stenciling the little dooly-dad on the left side.  Then... I move over to the right side and work my way to the middle.  Well, this just might be boring, maybe we should add some words.  How about the word "Sweet"?  I think flowers are sweet. So I stick that right in the middle.  Hmmm, now what?  That was dumb.  So I thought, and thought, and thought..... for about 1.3 minutes and the words "this" and "life" came to me. Perfect.  Each has 4 letters so we can keep this baby symmetrical!  And I'm done.  Except  for this announcement (after viewing the planter from afar....):
