Amy Chalmers of Maison Decor came over to visit yesterday.
She was supposed to bring me the paint I needed.
She sells Annie Sloan chalk paint.
SHE WAS LATE AND DIDN'T BRING THE PAINT!!!!!
WHAT THE #$% IS THE POINT OF BEING HER FRIEND?????
OK, now that I got that off my chest.....
I feel better.....
How are you guys doin'?????
Amy came over to see what I've been up to.
I showed her the chairs I'm painting for Miriam, which I will be sharing in my next post.
BUT NOT TODAY!!!!!
Believe it or not....
I have more stuff to show you in my study!!!!!!!
(If you're sick of looking at it.....
This is Amy's fault, she thought I should share with the class.....)
I finally got the plantation shutters for my windows in my living room and my study!!!!!
I showed you the wood grills I snapped into my other windows to make them feel more cottage-y.
But since my living room and my study are in the front of my condo, I'm not allowed to put them in those windows.
So, I went to my buddies at Back Bay Shutter, and had them install my new shutters.
This helps disguise the contemporary look of single pane windows.
Here they are closed.
I thinks it's very cozy.
But then, I spent a #$% load of money on them,
so I better like the damn things.....
This is what I had before.
These are wooden Venetian blinds.
They were nice but didn't cover the look of the modern windows enough.
But this isn't what Amy wanted
me to talk about!!!!!
She wanted me to show you guys this!!!!!
I had a horse nine years ago.
She and I were a team.
We won some ribbons!!!!!
Her name is Daisy.
She's a good girl.
So I sold her, and now she has a better life with a family.
We won some ribbons!!!!!!
Here I am riding her, thinking.....
"Don't fall off, don't fall off, don't fall off....."
She's not pissed off at me, her ears are back in case I have anything pithy to say to her.
She liked it when I sang.
Yes she did TOO!!!!!
I never touched a blue ribbon till she came into my life!!!!!
Except for the blue and white one below,
but that was for a vignette in the Boston Flower Show,
and decorating doesn't count.
I wanted you guys to see how productive Amy and I were yesterday.
Here we are taking pictures of each other.
('course, you can't see me,
'cuz I'm taking a picture of her,
taking a picture of me,
taking a picture of her.....)
For those of you who commented on the horse show ribbon I have hanging in my bedroom.
I didn't go to the college shown on the ribbon.
That was the college hosting the horse show!!!!!
don't you guys know nothin'?
HEY! like the way this post is meandering around?????
Stream of consciousness.
Can you have a stream of unconsciousness???????
Ow, my brain is hurting.....
before Amy left my home, she looked in my inventory that I have with my bidness partner Kris,
(stored in my special storage in my
basement special place that I have that's very special)
and took some things to sell in her Boston store.
This is a table on a stand that
I repainted and decoupaged the print onto the top.
I cut a stencil for the border and painted it with real fake gold.
Every night after dinner, I would go up to my workroom and add another layer of ModPodge on the top so the print would be on the same level as the top surface.
I am now selling this table for what I paid for it.
So you would get
ALL THIS DAMN WORK FOR FREE!!!!!!
No that's wrong.....
You'd get it for less than I paid.
I'm not including the cost of the print!!!!
A GOOD BIDNESS WOMAN!!!
The tray sits nicely on the stand.
Being an idiot, I didn't notice it wasn't in place when I took this shot.
So that's today's post.
A little of this.....
A little of that.....
And a lot of nothin'!!!!!
