Been awhile since I last posted...


I have been busy...and yes...I know everyone says that..but I REALLY was!!

I have been painting like Picaso! Many things around the casa have fallen victim to my paint brush.

With the help of my daughter...who is a decorating genius by the way...has helped me paint my living room from a boring basic white/off white to a woodsy green and whisper of buttery yellow. It doesn't sound like the two colors would go well togethe...but it looks so homey not HOMELY...and inviting!

One room even took a dose of vanilla brandy on the walls and ceiling.


My kitchen is...well...a brownsh gold. We threw some brown into some gold and came up with a different gold tone to coordinate with the barn wood I have as wainscotting.


I have even painted my jelly cupboard a flat black and gave it a drybrushing of cinnamon for a grubby worn look. My daughters idea of course!
I really wanted to paint that old Hoosier...but hubby told me it would loose its value if I did...I said..."SO, WHO'S TRYING TO SELL IT?"
I am going to paint my kitchen chairs to match the jelly cupboard...and he was worried about that too! He said, "THAT'S GREAT!! EVERYONE WHO SITS AT THE TABLE WILL HAVE A BLACK BUM!"

I replaced my vintage metal bread box with a simple wooden tool carrier box...it is barn red and I think it may have to be painted mustard color...not sure on that yet.


Even my barstools got hit with a whammy of black paint...now to find the right fabric to reupholster the seats!



As you can see to the left...I have still found time to create a few dollies during my painting quest!


Yep yep...all of them listed on ebay...Check them out when you get a chance.


















I have been working on some dolls also...can't seem to run from that either...Here is what is new...
