waitn' to paint

Yes, we are power washed & dried! And the sun is high in the sky with temps just right for outdoor painting to begin. So now it's just up to the painter to steer his truck over here today. No sign of him yet, but it's early. I thought maybe if I wrote here about wanting him to show up it might happen. Seemed to work the other day with the power washing.

So, anyway, let's talk more about indoor painting. Remember my love of handpainted pieces? Here's a special one. This chifforobe, which is now in my youngest son's bedroom, belonged to my mother when she was a little girl. It was in my room when I was small, too. Then, when I became pregnant with my first son my mom had it painted by her artist friend, Sue. Sue added the Peter Rabbit scene, and you can see she is a very talented lady. When I saw the finished piece for the first time I was completely dumbstruck. As I said to Sue, this piece will be an heirloom in my family for generations to come.
