And a little bit of that! That's what it's all about!! A little sunrise to start your day.....
I had two long decorative pillows that didn't quit match the deco anymore! I liked the shape and the fringe that went around them. I didn't mind the back side of the pillow either...it was a neutral...taupe!! So, I got out my trusty Gesso paint and started to work on them. Yep! I painted them with the Gesso!!!! And here is the results!!
|Putting on the gesso...!|
|Done with this one too!!|
It just toned it down enough that it now works beautifully with the decor!! The gesso makes the fabric a little stiffer to the touch but not hard! And they are decorative pillows!! Sooooooo.....ta da!!!
A little spring still life...
Well, all last week I worked on my studio! Whew! But boy is it looking good!!! I still have some finishing up to do; but I am now beginning to enjoy the space. Here are some before and after pics for you...
This is what I call the doll making side and I can actually see some of the table now!! I still need to put some more stuff away and cover the table surface with something more pleasing to the eye. I will keep you posted.
Now for the sewing side!
I can actually get to my machines now!!! Also need to cover this table and put some more things away. But we are getting there!!
Here are some still life's in the studio!!
So as you can see!? I still have a ways to go but all in all I am pleased with my progress. Soon I will be blissfully working away. I just have to remember to put things away as I use them!!! Sigh!! More pics to follow....!
I made a couple of Easter/Spring wreaths for our front gate using rusty barrel rings!!
Since I have been reorganizing the living room, I needed a new storage solution for some of my dolls! So, from Crate and Barrel, I purchased a sofa table and it works perfectly!!
The babies are happy and they are discreetly still on display. I love it! Plus this sofa table is beautiful! So a definite win win here!
This is our 20 year old peach tree! She gave us hundreds of peaches last year and we gave her a haircut and are ready for some more this year. One gorgeous tree and soon to be in bloom. I will share those pics when she shows off her plumage!!
Boy! Did I random, or what?? Ha!! And of course, you know the drill. Go visit Keely at The UnMom and see what she is up too!! And not only her, but there are many randomizers who post their links there. So go on...get over there!!
I did have my appointment with the Plastic Surgeon and we are set to have the surgery done in January, 2012. January 20th is the tentative date!! Woot!!! Woo!!!!! I am so excited! Gives me time to accumulate more cash and to lose that 30 lbs. I want to lose!! One happy camper here, for sure!!
And last, but not least, please pray for my good friend Paul and his wife Cheri!! Paul is in the hospital right now and fighting infections which are complicated by his leukemia!! He is having a tough battle! So prayers are really needed here. Thanks so much!!
Have a magical and blessed day!
