Friday morning moment....

Who doesn't love pink tulips in the middle of winter. Or anytime.

Another Project:

Since our new concrete countertops were installed last week, I was able to bring the rest of this mural down to meet it, finish grouting and call it complete. I wrote about this back in July if you check out my archives. Mine is a smaller version of the school's and working independently without the help of professionals, I think it came out alright. I certainly would do a few things differently, like blend the darks and lights a bit more along the edges. But, no regrets.

From my 6 nearly 7 year old Daisy scout who not only gets the message across but has to decorate it as well. Just like her Nana. And if you're not sure of your answer, it's right there in black and white for you.

The colors, either from my camera or from blogger are very distorted because these are both the same brown background and somewhere in a shade between the two of these. It's a beautiful linen.
This little bird is based on a phoebe, but since I'm deep into The Hunger Games it is turning into a Mockingjay.

Two New Projects

One: a new bird will soon land on this branch.

Two: a knitting project for a special birthday.

Having more than one project going at the same time is not unusual for me. Or for you, I imagine. When the creative spark hits, you just have to go with it.

And finally, a corner of our house this Friday morning.
