rooms, tambourine leg, and artSeptember 09, 2012
Thank you for all the love sent over about
my living room...some of you have made me
feel extra fancy featuring it on your
fabulous blogs like ArchCandy.
I hung some of my
art on the wall and
even stopped myself from making things
symmetrical on the other side of the fireplace.
Personal growth, kittycats.
I don't know if I have shown you this perspective.
The artwork is a gorgeous painting by
Melissa of Aimless Olive.
You may remember this canvas I painted when
commissioned to do a similar one for an office.
I cannot even tell you how many layers of paint there are.
I also employed wax and secrets.
The coffee table I created from a table tossed in
a church's garbage is working nicely.
It has two drawers for holding ugly remotes.
This is my lounge/music studio.
Out went the leather loveseat and ghost chairs,
but the swing remains cuz a girl needs to swing.
The trunk is from my childhood.
Something else from childhood...the piano is now in here,
and I am loving the acoustics of 10-foot
ceilings (paintings are by artist friend Malik).
I wanted flirty skirts for the kitchen chairs,
but sewing them would involve a machine.
Me and machines don't get along.
So I bought linen Shabby Chic shams
by Rachel Ashwell and sewed on linen ties.
I melted candle nubs and added the wax to
my old English crocks for instant candles.
*Now brace yourself, sunshine*
This is my leg after Thursday's garage band* rehearsal.
*6 middle aged professionals who jam and get funky in
a friend's garage and aspire to perform for intoxicated listeners.
Yep. Tambourine leg.
The most massive bruise I have ever incurred
Further googling reveals I should be proud.
Whatev. Today the bruise is black.
Our name (for now) is
Under Observation, and with just
4 rehearsals under our belts,
we have a gig at a carnival on September 15th.
I'm singing WALK THE SAME LINE and backup on 11 other songs
including HEY MAMA and MONEYGRABBER.
The wardrobe will be casual, and here is a t-shirt I made to possibly wear:
Get down, mama!
Still with your funky friend?
Thanks to close blogmates featuring
my beachy abstracts, they sold out in a few days
(thank you Tina and Sherry!)
so I have added more.
Peace to you right where you are.
