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 :)
