I'm almost finished a smaller project - almost -
And I can't wait to get them out of the house and into somewhere where they'll actually fit.
My place is now officially on the verge of a hoarder's house - seriously -
The dining room has been rendered useless - and the only space where there is no furniture
overflowing is the kitchen and that's strictly because it's basically the size of a bathroom or
I'd have things in there too................hopefully this wknd I can finish up the 7 pieces ( including chairs - do they count if they're part of a dining set lol )?
So just a little sneak peak
and then I staged it before I was even halfway finished it
John walks by - Are we having soup?
Suzan says - Don't be silly - the table's not even finished yet
John says - Why in God's name is there a soup tureen on the table - with salt and pepper and wine glasses and
Suzan says - I just staged it for photos
John says - Ok - I know I don't " get it " but why the hell are you setting the table when you're not finished painting it?
Suzan says - Because I'm going to show everyone a sneak peak of how it's coming along
John says - My God you're full of yourself, aren't you?
Suzan says - Why?
John says - Do you really think people are just waiting around to see what you come up with?
Suzan says - Does it look pretty?
John says - I'm not going to say a word this time - you're on your own with your blog
Suzan says - Can you help me put everything away? I really need to get back to painting
John says - You make dinner look nicer when it's " pretend " than you do when we actually eat,
do you realize that? ( shaking his head as he carries away the soup tureen forlornly )
AND I do know it's crazy - believe me - and I get quite embarassed when he points these things out - but mostly I just find it hilarious
I'm working on this too
John says - That looks nice - as he goes to brush his hand across the top
Suzan SCREAMS - DON'T TOUCH IT - IT'S WET!!!!!!!!!!
John says - You're taking photos of it - I ASSUMED it was dry - finished
John says - Why would I think that? - shaking his head and walking away
Suzan says - Well why do you have to touch everything - can't you just say it
looks nice without touching it? I'm not the strange one!
Suzan yells out after him - You know what they say about A.S.S.U.M.E., right?
John yells back - You're C.E.R.T.I.F.I.A.B.L.E.
I've added this as an after thought - because John went and put a screw in the works of my
Here's a photo of 2 chairs -
I did a white wash on the lighter one - and was just about to start on the darker one and John said
NO NO - leave it - it looks better dark.
Hmmmm - me no think so - but I HAVE been wrong two times in my life so I could be wrong about this one
I guess ( although I really did promise myself I would never be wrong about anything ever again )
So here's a close up of each -
and the whole set is country inspired -
Yuck - no like at all -
What do you think? Am I right? Or am I wrong? I'm confused! ( not really - because I
think I'm right lol )
And talking about confusion
Here's a photo I took outside my front door - after bracing for Sandy - it swept right
by us................it was warm with a beautiful breeze - but not enough wind to even take the
leaves off the tree outside - and can I remind you, this is Canada - and it's basically November -
There's nothing more pathetic than a discombobulated tree - nothing................
Prayers to all who have and are still weathering the storm - hope their lives return to normal as quickly as possible.
