i kinda forgot about my blog in the midst of life and doing things until a friend of mine said, "why haven't you posted anything on your blog lately". so i thought i'd give her and my one other follower(thank-you!, so neat to have my first non-related/non "i see you all the time, why do i have to read ur blog person" on here) something to read/see!
So my sister asked me if i could duplicate this really cute sign she saw in idaho on vacay last summer at a cutsie-shmootsie expensive store. and i said, sure. so like almost a year later here it is! da-da-da-dahhh!!! my sis bribed me w/ a jute rug(not that she had to, i would have done it for free, that was just her way of getting me to hurry-up already!) that she was getting rid of, i put it on my back patio. in return i painted her this "botanique" sign and this plaque that she got at a thrift store for $1.50. she had this little poem she liked so i painted it on and added some fleurs. that's frenchie for FLOWERS, like you didn't know that already...;) i just like to call 'em that- not w/ the frenchie accent tho. so it's more like "flerrs" say it w/ me people! okay, i digress- you'll find i do that a lot! i also painted a "botanique" sign for my mommy( yes, i really still and always will call my mom "mommy", even tho i turn 36 next mo.!) for mother's day. now everyone wants one! but i want one too, so i guess i'll get around to painting mine in like a year?????so what do you do for fun? i paint and paint and paint! sometimes people even pay me for it (which is really fun!) but i would do it no matter what, even if i had no one to paint for but me! that's when you know it's your passion, not just a hobby. i'd love to know what your passions are and see pics. thanks for reading!
