It's Friday already. Wow this has been a speedy week. It seems like just
yesterday that I was in Houston with David for a fun shopping trip, but
that was last Saturday. So what have I been doing? Well to start with I
have been painting. No, not craft painting, but rather this kind of painting ...
I painted this little chest for the re-do of Mom's room. It's not quite finished yet
and I have a few more touches to make, but I like it better than the way it
looked before which was this version below ...
I painted over the gold and all that vintage antiquing. I think the lines of
the piece show up better now.
I spent some time with my miniatures. I have become completely obsessed
with them. Notice I have no pies or cakes yet. I must do something about
that! What's a cake plate without a cake???
My plate addiction has now carried over into the miniature realm. That's
a good thing because I have absolutely no more room in any full size
cupboard or hutch or sideboard in this house for any more dishes!
And this set is what arrived this week ...
Look at this adorable rose covered tureen, platter, gravy boat, dishes and bowls.
I tell you what ~ I am smitten!
And finally, there is the new set of fireplace tools for the mini fireplace.
No logs yet. Maybe after I get some pie and cake I can get some logs
too so the fairies can have dessert and tea by the fire ;-)
Happy Friday and Happy Spring Everyone!
Big Texas Hugs,
