Linda @ Painted Whyte May 26, 2010

I can't believe i forgot to write a post about this awesome hardware i stumbled across a couple of weeks ago.  I think i need to hunt for more!!!

sorry for the dark pictures!  I really need to learn how to use my camera lol.

The celery green roses are already spoken for.... i met with a new client today (hi Denise!) to help pick out a colour for some window mirrors & frames (she has 4 of them).  She has a beautiful home which includes an antique trunk, some beautiful sewn cushions done by Denise and a very "large" guard dog lol - a tiny chihuahua who showed me her tiny teeth - it was so cute that she thought she was so tough. 

I will also be transforming a cute antique desk for her and the celery green rose knobs are a part of its makeover.  If i were this desk i would totally be excited, i mean who wouldn't want to wear 4 of these right?  And the best part is one package of 4 was $9.99 - can you believe it?  I was so excited i think i might have even skipped to my car lol.  I know.... small things amuse me.

So another funny story of how Linda looked like a bonehead... so i was putting a couple coats of paint on two dressers today and i was wearing a mask so i wouldn't be tasting paint all night - its water based so its not going to kill me but blah it tastes yucky!  So i finish up with that while Kevin is outside cutting the lawn and then we drive home in separate vehicles.  I had to go to Safeway to pick up a prescription and a couple of groceries and about 5 or 6 people where looking at me weird.  I didn't think anything of it.  I get home and wash up before supper and almost died when i saw myself in the mirror.  I had WHITE paint all around my eyes and on the outsides of my nose - i looked like a flippen Raccoon!  And ... Kevin did not say a word about it - i mean he could have warned me or told me i should wash my face before i headed to Safeway.  All he said was "oh sorry, ya i guess i'm just used to you looking like that" ummm hello??  What are you trying to say, that i look like a raccoon ALL the time.  I had no choice but to laugh it off and hope and pray i don't run into any of those people from Safeway again.  I may have to find a new pharmacy :)

Thank you for the laugh. I don't think you are alone on this one. I think all of us painters have had at least one if one a million of the times we forgot we had paint all over ourselves. Glad you told us about it though.
