Several years ago I was into decorative painting. I still love to paint but finding the time to do it is what's hard! I used to try painting while being here at the shop in between customers but the paint would dry in my brush by the time I got back to it and found that crocheting was much more portable.
My fav piece that I did was this nitestand. It's my own design. I like how it turned out. I'll get back to painting one of these days. I always thought it would be fun to paint themes/scenes in children's rooms.
The more correct color of the nitestand is the first photo.
I've been busy here at the shop and then I've been staying late to list some stuff on ebay since they have free auction listings thru Sept. 7th. So I haven't been working on fixing up the house very much.
The new garden has been doing very well. We've had such a mild summer so far. Really it's the coolest one I can remember! That fact alone has kept my new plantings from burning up for lack of a root system. I can tell it's gonna be warmer today, though. No cloud cover this morning and as sunny as can be...but I don't care because I'm going down to the beach to hang with my sis and her family and to see my mom, too. Mom, sis and I are planning to see the movie, Eat, Pray, Love and share a bit of "girlfriend" time. I also need to return a really cute blouse at a boutique my sis got for me for my b-day because it's too small, ugg! Damn menopause!!
Have a lovely weekend and stay cool!!
