I have forever wanted to have my own "ArT" room....
It would be filled with Paint, wood-handled Brushes, Charcoals in every color, Canvas stretched on wood frames, Architect desk, Ribbon on rolls and Fabric galore.... Xanthi, my oldest, by 2-minutes is getting a new room in the (almost) finished basement. I therefore am taking over her room & making it into my Art Compound....
Getting chills just thinking about it
As always I will have my Pretties in their rightful container..
If you are anything like me.. You find yourself rushing out the door, just don't have time to put away the blow dryer, curling iron or deodorant, Soooo you toss it under the Sink.. My Mother always told me "never leave your home a mess, because you never know when Jesus might come for a visit". So with that ingrained into my mind at a young age I wouldn't dare leave such necessities out on the cabinet..
To ease Moms little voice in my head I have come up with the perfect mathematical equation..
Stuff + Container = No Voices in my head screaming "is this the day Jesus comes for a visit"???? Get yourself a fun wood, plastic or eco friendly container that can "catch" those odds and ends.
Make it your own!!
For me that took a coat of White Paint, then a coat of some funky
Pink-ish color I had in my garage (big surprise)..
You know what comes next... SAND the day-lights out of it...
Waaaaaa Laaaaaaaaa !!!!!
Put it under your Sink & you can feel a little stylish as you run out the door with not a single voice lingering in your head..... xox
Those of you whom have spoken to me or read my Blog in the last month, you are well aware of my mini fascination or obsession with Spring, or the lack thereof.. Today was no different… I heard the sweetest words come from the lips of the all knowing & seeing weather-man, that Friday was to reach 50 degrees.. I have been so excited all week. I have made my plan.. I decided I was going to catch some of those UV’s I have been desperate to feel for much too long. So I got the lounge chair with its soft yummy pillow-like cover out of storage & placed it on the deck awaiting my 30 minutes in the sun..
As my small window of time approached I gathered my book, sunglasses & off I went… When I opened the door a Galeforce wind greeted me, (maybe not a galeforce), but wind none the less… I was NOT going to let that bone chilling wind spoil my plans, so I ran back up stairs to get on a pair of Jeans, Sweatshirt, grabbed a Blanket and off I went… Yes, you read it right.. I was sitting on my deck with Jeans a thick Sweatshirt and blanket covering my entire body.. It totally crossed my mind at that moment in time, if anyone could see me from Space, could my neighbors see this specktacle before their eyes???? Although a little cold & breezy the sun did touch my Face & Finger-tips in the most wonderful way.
I must say, I have not a SPRING in my step, but a LEAP…
My Hubby calls me...... "Hell-in-high-Heels", I prefer to go by, A devoted Wife and Girlfriend to this Planets SUPER Man, also a hyper Cheerleader and disciplinarian to my 12 yr old twins, whom are my heart and greatest accomplishments. Being a Mother is my lifes JOY and Fulfillment.
I am a Spiritual girl, I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Yah, a Mormon!! NO, we don't have horns and YES, we love funeral potatoes and green-jello-salad.
I adore Vintage finds, Shabby furniture that I can take from ugly and sad looking to Amazingly Grand, hence the term "Shabby Chic". Look at it as recycling the past.
I love Red Barns and rubber ducks. I am passionate about Art, I am at my best when I can be Creative. I love Fashion and Shoes! My family and I love to Travel, to Camp and ride Motorcycles.. Boating through the canyons of Lake Powell is one of our favorite past times, while Snowmobiling is just dang cold!
This blog in-part will document and chronicle bits & pieces of One Families Journey.
I hope to share Ideas, maybe my Bucket List, great Unique Treasures I find along the way and a few Tutorials on any new tricks I learn....!!!!! ~ The Journey is on ~
