To give David something to do when I work evenings. Left on his own it is all about the Legos.
Surfing Kijiji, ebay, and craigslist, not to mention flyers, online ads, cross border shopping leads to this.......
Please please vote for this Entry. My beautiful daughter Heather and her son Lynkin. He is the sweetest thing in my life. People always told me how special grandchildren are and I thought sure. But man o man I get it now. Pure utter sweet joy is what he brings to my life.
I have promised to paint her some furniture.
How is someone supposed to choose a paint colour. It took my 50 years to Choose a favourite colour. Yup, drum room please, pea soup green. No wonder my first can of ASCP was Antibes Green. I love working with Annie Sloan Chalk paint. I love her commitment to small entrepreneurs.
I read the instructions on the can, in the book and started.
I used two light coats and had this brilliant green. Then applied the clear wax, using a stencil brush with bristles about 1/2" in diameter.
You can see how it gets toned down when the dark wax is applied. Lots of "wax on, wax off".
He it is all painted and waxed. Love how the colour turned out. But not sure if there is too much dark wax.
Yup I meant florring.
As in FLor. I've seen them used many times by Candace Olsen. squares almost 20x20" in an incredible array of colour, pattern, stripes and costs. They are hard wearing, hopefully super hard wearing.
I choose this fine stripe for the entrance way.
And this pattern for the livingroom area. The sofa is a solid turquoise colour and the chair is a tone on tone sort of velvety paisley that reads as a solid. I needed some pattern. Well this is more than some patterndiv>
I can't decide what my favourite score was on our recent thrifting trip. But this white lamp is a definite contender. I'm auditioning it in various spots. I think it might live on my bedside table.
The shade was borrowed from another lamp. The diameter is fine I think but it should be a bit longer.
Anyone else find shopping for lamp shades really trying?
I have had the poster for a few years. Try decades. It is from an exhibit at the ROM called Silk Roads -China Ships.
Have you ever enjoyed something so much that you immediately want to turn it into a tradition?
Many of you were enjoying Thanksgiving traditions last weekend- spending time with family, reflecting on life and the many things to be thankful for, and food of course.
We had our turkey a few weeks ago, family was busy elsewhere so we booked an Inn in Connecticut and hit the road. Three pieces of small furniture, two lamps and one large wooden box later we are home.
My weakness is for picture frames, well really chairs, but they take up too much room. I bought these for the frames but one I might keep as is. Guess which one!
This guy is called Pope Innocent by Velazquez.
This is some pressed flowers by Kathy to her grandparents done in 1971.
