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.
