Oh the "Oscar" in me has been having a field day this morning! I like to work in a whirlwind style that is a bit off putting to Cliff when he is home. Let's just say it's a bit of creative chaos.
This morning I made my own cleaners out of vinegar and baking soda to clean his bathroom. They work great, smell a little bit and the foaming action is very pleasing. I also cooked up a pound of bacon for future recipes. Raw bacon skeeves me so I was happy to get that done.
Oh, and I finished this project. All these things basically at the same time. Random huh?
Cliff has our camera in Scotland, so I am using his apple computer camera with less than stellar success.
This was a thrifted cork board and the frame was a shiny "goldish" color. Two coats of Kilz and some craft paint and now it is shabby chic. The little charm says "treasures." My cousin Matlida is thirteen and I really wanted to give her something sweetly sophisticated for Christmas. The teen years are kind of tricky. I think this fits the bill.
Since I am going to Florida next week, I am trying to get a few Christmas presents done to take with me. Postage ends up costing us more than the gifts themselves most years.
In other news, I am anxiously awaiting Cliff's call to say he made it to Scotland OK and at the same time, I am getting things set up for Kate's visit!
