I bought the cats a new scratching cardboard piece and it came with a small sachet of catnip. I sprinkled the tiniest bit on and Morgan went a bit psycho; half cat, half razor wire.
I always wonder where the stores got the gorgeous display pieces that are never for sale…like this huge basket. Nevermind the cute pumpkins, I want that wire basket…which is not for sale!
The other thing I wonder about is how does it figure that, (at retail, nevermind wholesale), $35 worth of pretty plants plus galvanized tub plus about 20 minutes of work, (believe me I know), turn into a $150 arrangement?
Mom and I had lunch this week and we were the only people in this sweet little French bistro to ask to sit on the patio. (French bistro was quite full) I would have expected the reverse on a day like this. Come on people, how many more sunny, warm afternoons are we going to get before we’re forced inside?
I started a new painting/project/craft/thing this week. I’ve had this old wooden screen for…forever. The panels have seen their fair share of painted canvas, tapestry, fabric…whatever I felt like and now I’m ready to display it again. So I bought some canvas, did the very mathematic and complicated method of eyeballing the sizes for the panels, drew some pen guidelines and painted the background with acrylics. Then sketched out and wiped off about 17 different designs with blackboard chalk.
Then I picked up my oils. So far so good. I like the way it’s turning out.
Sharing with Nancy and looking forward to everyone’s randomness.
