Here are a few updates on projects
that are not complicated enough to warrant
their own post, but I wanted you to see
change as it continues to happen here!
Here's my door plaque before,
a faux green marble constant
reminder of a momentary
lapse in good judgment and taste:
And after a coat of Citristrip,
a little steel wool and
a bit of elbow grease:
This little zinc wall hanging/holder/hook
thing got the same citristrip treatment.
I must say, it does pain me to destroy someone's
handiwork - it prompted me to pray for the hands
that created this charming artwork as I stripped it.
As charming as it was, it was not my taste.
I probably should've left this piece for someone
who may have loved it as it was, but I didn't.
Once again, sometimes all you need to do
is take away something.
As pedestals for moss balls:
A gilded frame before:
and after a little ASCP French Linen:
A little stool before:
This past week, I cleaned and sorted
garage sale things and held a sale.
It was the first of several I hope to have.
I actually have some empty space in my garage!
There is not enough space yet
to park a car, but progress is progress.
I'll bet this guy agrees:
What 90 Symbolizes:
Easy. It's how old I felt Saturday
after my 2nd day of the garage sale.
KIDDING! I felt 89. No - really -
the numbers were next to each other on the
stencil, and I just liked the way they looked.
I usually make things relate, but not this time.
Word for the Day:
I am like a desert owl,
like an owl among the ruins.
