Hi to whoever is out there. I'm sitting on my sofa thinking about all of the projects I want to get started. I do have a book case in my hall that is at least 100 years old, it was my great-grandparents. I haven't repainted it, so I don't know when it was last painted. I got into a cupboard and started pulling out things my dad made as a child, his marbles/bag, some artwork. Then I got out some things my grandma made as a teenager/young adult. I was so blessed to have my grandma for 43 years, and she was very active until 2 weeks before she passed. I and my daughters, spent a great deal of time with my grandparents. I lived at my parents during the week, and on weekends I went to my grandma's or my aunt and uncle's. 4 words Our household was dysfunctional. My grandma's and aunt's homes were safe and happy. WOW I wonder where that came from. I thought I was over it....I am now.
Still have a bunch of projects to do. My husband won't allow (yeah right) me on a ladder when he is not home, I always miss that last wrung and jar myself. I live in a gated community of 3,000 people..And my backyard, just past my patio is the 6th hole on the golf course. I have a view of about at least 30 miles and I live in the foothills of 2 mountain ranges. I bet you didn't know So. Cal. had such places.
I feel very blessed to have the life I have. I also do not like milk paint! WTH I like chalk paint so much better. My above mentioned bookshelf looks like it was painted and distressed with milk paint and like I said it's 100 years old!
Well I think, just think, that I will get my fall decorations out. Have a great day! Paula
