I had a nice post for today planned out, but CC and I cleaned the garage and I am so pooped!! We broke down and ordered cable again...I can't be without my decorating shows and Papa Bear misses his comedy shows....so tomorrow the DishNet cable installer will be here and we had to clean out the garage so he can reach the attic....whew!!! It wasn't so bad..but I have been up since 7:30 this morning and Papa Bear and I seriously worked non-stop til 9pm. I am so tired.
So I am going to show you today a couple of paintings...
I love tulips.... they used to be my #1 but now roses are my new #1! When tulips reigned, Papa Bear started painting me a picture of some tulips that he brought me home one day.
It's been about 5 years in the making now. He has to time (desire) to finish... so right now the painting sits behind his chest of drawers. Looking at it now, I really do with he would finish it for me!
This painting I bought at an art sale earlier this year. I didn't purchase the frame at that time. I had planned on going back the next day to fit a frame but they were gone. So now this painting too sits behind his chest of drawers. I LOVE this painting too.... I could look at it and just get lost..imagine myself sitting in one of those windows, sipping coffee and smelling the fresh flowers hanging from my window...sigh.....
One more "pink" for you... I am hosting a giveaway in honor of my 200th post.
Inside this box you will find this.....
You all know how I love to cook...and you know how crazy I went when I bought the Skinny Italian cookbook. The recipes are so simple and so very, very delicious!! You won't be disappointed. Plus, you will learn how to choose a good olive oil and the differences between the varieties. You will also learn different uses for common herbs. I love this book! I have made several recipes from it and they have all been a success!! Even my girls pitch in to help cook!
