I HAVE BEEN FACED WITH A WALL LATELY
You guessed it
It's the stone walls of # 43 Green Dolphin Street.
I made them with the egg carton which I had been so anxious to try and now am so equally anxious to be finished with.
This is currently what it looks like. There must be at least 10 to 12 layers of glue, acrylic paint, putty, gels (both matt and shiny), textured gels, MORE paint, stains, ( both water AND oil based), MORE egg carton and really,... who knows what else?!!!
I have only 2 sides "completed" with still one to go and the BIG question is... will I be able to make the last one match?
THAT is now my newest concern.
yet I must press on
|A closer look at the stones in my stone wall|
| and look!|
Peeking through the upstairs window reveals a NEW TREASURE
and a VERY HAPPY THOUGHT! :D
|Roses that have travelled|
all the way across the Atlantic ocean to the far side of Canada,
and then straight into my house
| THIS BEAUTIFUL PAINTING is BY CATHERINE BURON! |
Catherine painted this especially for # 43 Green Dolphin Street :D
WHAT A THOUGHTFUL AND GENEROUS GIFT!!!
I love Roses
and I LOVE this painting!
|It now hangs on the wall of the stairwell,|
you can only see the side of the PAINTING from this angle
but you get the full picture by looking though the window!
but that was not all that was enclosed in her parcel
|Catherine also gave me an assortment of printies of Victorian greeting cards|
|And this came along too;|
This perfect little covered pot with the most beautiful glaze and proportions!
|Linda brought along a small parcel for me|
|What a pretty little pink flower, a peony I believe,|
and in my favorite color!
|Oh My Goodness...|
|Linda said that she reads my blog and had read Marisa of Steinworks comment about stockings for the clothes line in the kitchen, |
a THOUGHTFUL and
Fabulous Presentation! :D
|A HUGE BOUQUET OF ROSES TO YOU TOO LINDA!|
| AND HERE THEY ARE...|
TO BOTH OF YOU
FRESH FROM MY GARDEN
|Thank you Linda!|
Thank you Catherine!
