A little bit of THIS and a whole lot of THAT

Saturday and Sunday I worked a bit on my garden rug. I'm liking how it's coming together I especially like the coneflowers....however, I'm going to rehook the centers at some point to incorporate some orange and green (Kenny informed me that this is the color that the centers are on the purple coneflowers, however, he was very pleased with the color of the petals)

I think I got fairly close to the velvety/silver color of the mullen leaves.

In the mean time....don't they say it's good luck when a bird craps on you :)

Not everything is glamourous in my little corner of the world....even though I'd like for you to think it is :)

Ter'e, I worked all day yesterday on painting the ceiling of the den yesterday that I started back here....actually, the red walls and the trim are all painted. I was hoping to finish the ceiling in a day, however, when I went back and looked at the instructions for doing the glazing, it said you had to let your base coat dry for 24, I'm planning on tackling that this weekend.
I really wish I knew how to do time lapse photography, because it would have been quite entertaining. Up the step-ladder, down the step-ladder, taping off the crown molding. Then up and down the step-ladder taping up plastic sheeting to cover the red walls...(yes, I know, paint the ceiling first, but we weren't sure if we were going to paint the ceiling or not). Then I would move the furniture to one end of the room....couch, loveseat, wingback chair, tables, lamps, plants, etc....then move everything to the OTHER end,,,,then the other SIDE. I'm not sore today, but check back with me tomorrow :0
I promise there will be video to come when it's finished. I might even take some video tonight...the furniture is all pushed back, but the plastic sheeting is still on the's an odd look to say the least.

Yes, I live with a brush in my hand....coloring my world.
Go forth and be creative,
