Goofy Day, Goofy Play

Hello Friends and Family. I am goofing off when I should be getting some things done around here, and I'm going out to the pool in a little bit. I had fun yesterday putin on the red, white, and blue that I picked out from The Cutest Blog on the Block! I also went to and played and played with the glitter, and sparklies. Here is a new blingee photo of me. It would look pretty good, if I were 25 again

Trash to Treasure Art

Hello Friends and Family. I hope you are all doing OK tonight, and if not, well email me, and let's talk. I am a good listener, and I won't repeat a thing.
I wanted to tell you about a new friend, Lynn, who has a blog. Just click on the title above, or
here, and check her out. She is celebrating at the moment because of receiving her 200th post! That's great! Also, in these difficult economical times, you know I have been doing more thrift store shopping for objects to alter, books, general junk, old frames and canvases to repaint, and it is so much fun!
Well, Lynn at Trash to Treasure Art and I must be on the same wave link! The big news is the wonderful art give aways that she has right now, and if you don't go check out this great blog you will be sorry. I call dubs on the earrings though. They are just too cute!

Some days are diamonds and some days or stones….what a week of stones.

This whole week has been nothing but stones. I have been really down the last few days, but I hope things will be looking up soon.

I am looking into a couple of local groups to join, since I left my last group, because I just love the meetups.

Also, I lost my brother Charles a year ago today to cancer, and so I have been dreading this day, and I’m still missing him so much. Why do the good ones always have to go first? Charles would have been 60 on August 9th.


Well I have a lot of projects that I need to be working on, so I am going to get started tomorrow on some of them, and you know I will post some photos.I am starting on the curtains, finally, for my living roon, and some other things.

BTW did you notice my new short hairstyle? Let’s just say it is a little shorter than I wanted, (but Sis says it will grow back Ha), and I dyed it sort of a light reddish blond. I really needed a change.Hugs to all of you out there, and hey send some back my way!

Canvas for Round Robin

Hello Friends and Family. Here are my beginnings for a canvas RR. My theme is shabby chic. I started with some pale colors of pink, green, and blue, and I just played with them and ended up with the suggestion of flowers. Next I added an image of a rose and then I over-painted it with acrylics, and I added the pink ticket and the three little girls. I don't know what that has to do with my theme, but I like it, as a matter of fact I felt like I could complete the whole thing, but I wouldn't have anything to send to the RR!
I have said in the past that I am decorating my new place with a shabby chic feel, but I keep straying to a more traditional feel. I have some new/used tables for the living room that I just love. They have beautiful pink marble tops, but the bases are dark and ornate. I go back and forth on whether to paint the bases or not, and I have finally decided that I will. I will probably paint them white with a little distressing done with some stain maybe. I will take some photos and upload them, and you can help me to decide. I also have to decide about the dining room area. I have a nice old pine open shelf hutch that I am deciding to paint or not. The table and chairs I have now are pretty country and I don't know if I like them right next to the living room tables. I have a really small space there, but that's how it is in these retirement places. I will show you my whole place eventually, and I hope that you can ofter some advice to me on the decorating.
Well, time to make dinner, and switch the laundry so goodbye for now, and I just thank you so much for listening to me just going on and on about....whatever!

Sunday, June 7, 2009's me

Hello Friends and Family. I have been way out of pocket lately, and working on my apartment. Today and yesterday I have been sick with a bad cold. Hope to feel better tomorrow. I am going to load some new photos soon. I had some problems with my computer, but things are better now. Please let me know what is going on with each of you. I will be visiting your blogs soon, just to look around, and say hi! I hope you are all well. More to post later.
