We have taken advantage of Brewiers free time to do some projects around the house. One of which has me excited beyond words. Thirty three years ago when Brewier and I got married, my parents gave us their old, second hand, bedroom furniture. It's from the turn of the century. Last century. I've wanted to paint it since we got married, and this week it's finally happening. Why the wait? I always thought I'd have to strip it, prime it paint it and sand between coats. Then I read the Nesters book, and realized it didn't have to be perfect. So we lightly sanded it, and are getting ready to put a coat of charcoal colored semi gloss wall paint on it. I'm finally starting to break away from my perfectionist ways.
Yes, that is me...painting! I love Mythic paint.
When I dumped everything out of my dresser drawers, in preparation for painting, (the corner of my bedroom now sports a mountain of clothing,) I found this corset I had bought at a Renaissance fair, back in the late 90's.
This is how it fits me now.
It fits Oliver. Yes, when I was in my 30's I was as big around as a three year old. I had no idea I was that thin. (I have a really small frame.)
I L-O-V-E my dark grey wall; it makes the best backdrop for photos.
This beautiful, sparkly, card came in the mail for me yesterday. Linda Sue, in TX, who has been a blog reader for years, smashed these pennies for me while on her HONEYMOON! Thank you, fabulous lady!
