Hello friends. Rainy Sunday. Helped DH scrub the back decks. Green and black stuff is gone. Yearly job. Clean the deck, paint the deck. Check out the rails, remove bubbled paint, scrape, dry, repaint. Maybe by this time next week the job will be finished. The deck coat and the fresh paint are waiting by the back door.
Garage Sales this weekend? Some unique to me finds. The wooden cog wheel was the most original.
The Archive, well patinated and somewhat rusty paper holder. I love the clear lettering. Mixing it with the wooden cog, and vintage doorknobs makes a very masculine vignette.
(well, maybe). At first glance it is is just plain funky, lots of faux metal corners, faux leather straps, faux belt closures (really just snap closures covered by the belt look. Looks like alligator (faux, just plastic). The rim is bamboo. Totally fun. Great display piece in a vignette.
and not in to 'making' something new/unique/etc., plus gardening work. We are collectively getting some painting done in DGS's room (since it was my sewing room and I loved 'peach' paint), it is now being turned into his favourite 'blue' with brown curtains. Just have to change out the sheets and duvet to brown and find somewhere to store my stuff in another space. We are also refreshing the basement bathroom. Its now on its 3rd coat of lovely fresh white. Gone are the partly painted white over peach walls and the bright green door and window trim (a surprise from DS when I came home to one day a few years ago, not my choice).
Do you ever get surprises that take hours and hours to redo, sometimes years later?
