Oh my, what a time I've been having...
Ellie gave me her cold this past weekend and I am just starting to get over that...our living room is STILL not finished being painted...and last night someone tried to (well, did) break into both hubby and my vehicles!
What a story that was...they actually took a credit card out of my husband's truck - but little did they know it had been cancelled a few weeks back. Long story short - we found out they tried to use it at a gas/convenience store nearby so I went there and the owner found the two people on their surveillance tapes. I couldn't believe my eyes when he pulled it up on screen and I saw the pair, (a 40ish year old man and woman) trying to use our credit card that they had just STOLEN. Of course it was declined and I could hear him on the tape making excuses and stating that he didn't have any other i.d. on him. I contacted the police and they are coming over to file a report. Jeepers! What is it with me and credit cards lately?
Anyway, even though my house is upside down I still find time to create! It may be my only saving grace at this point. :) Here is another
collage on canvas I have been working on. Paris was my inspiration of course...
This large wooden dovetailed box was screaming for a makeover so I obliged. :) I dressed it up with some old wallpaper, vintage cream colored buttons, antique lace and rhinestone accents.
It's quite large and could stash alot of goodies!
I would post a picture of the painting progress but really, the only thing that's changed is the color. The windows are currently being worked on and the walls still need a couple more coats of paint. Yesterday hubby was sanding the walls and he had this neat gadget hooked up to the Shop Vac so there would be no dust. (our living room and kitchen are all open concept - do you sense where this is going?) All of a sudden I heard "OH NO!" come from him (well, actually it was a whole bunch of expletives, but anyway) The coil had come loose and there was drywall dust EVERYWHERE. It actually looked foggy in our house.
Renovating is so much fun isn't it?
