Back to my Passion!

    Back to Work & back to my passion!

 Yes, I have been MIA {missing in action} for a while, due to a fractured arm. Ouch, yes, it still hurts and it has been almost 8 weeks since my fall.  I am attending physical therapy and it is helping, although I still don't have full range.  A necessity is to be able to put a pony tail in my hair!

  So it's back to work at my day job {banker} this week and back to my passion!  My passion, can you guess?  Painting furniture, French typography , repurposing and junk! 💗💗💗. 

  So what better project to start on than a 1920's 5 drawer dresser, with harp and a mirror!  The top is scratched and badly water stained. As far as the sides go, it needed some patch work, the veneer is falling off.  My hubby is a perfectionist, so he fixed all the spots and you will never know !   

  I am painting it with Antique White General Finishes Milk Paint. Color, yes I love color, my clients love antique white! 💗. So I paint a lot of pieces Antique White, Linen & Snow White.  Someone out there has to love color, turquoise, Persian blue, coral, black, bayberry green!  Stay tuned, I have some colorful projects on the back burner, waiting to be painted.

  I have chosen a grapic from "The Graphics Fairy" that I have not drawn in a while.  This graphic is some what easy, yet has an impact when you see it.  

  Some Ebony Wax and new glass knobs.  Ooh, lala!  She will be done, ready for an outdoor photo shoot.  

  So, time to crank up the rock & roll and finish this beautiful piece!  Progress so far! 💗💗💗

  For now...................peace, love & junk! {geniece}

June in the Country!

  Welcome to June in the Country!  The pots and flower boxes have been filled. The hanging baskets are up and the new orbs are everywhere.  Yes, I have added several new orbs that I purchased over the winter and have collected special pieces for stands!  

  At the end of April I broke my left arm {humerous} in two places.  Yes it was the humerous bone, but by no means was it funny! So my gardening was slow and easy, with only one hand and some pain!  

  Thank you to my hubby for all of his help this summer!  He has been wonderful!  I couldn't do it without you!

  Why does the summer go by so fast and the winter drag on?  That is the question?  It goes by in a blur, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, then Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!  

  Ok, just enjoy the moment that you are in!  Ohhhhh, I'm okay now!  Thank you for stopping by! XoXo

  So, peace, love & junk!
