Happy 2015 {or early Happy Valentines Day}

Tuesday, January 06, 2015

Welcome back to real life!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready to tackle the '15. Here in the mountain valley, we had a great time together! Mom came in from Clemmons and she and Jack showed up in the same shirt on Christmas morning. 


Really cool when you are a rad Grandma, not quite as awesome when you are a 16 year old boy...

and let's just take note of how tall my baby has gotten in the last 6 months. If he is still for a minute, I swear I can see that neck actually stretching.  

Apparently dressing in gray is really, really cool. Just call us trendsetters.

Or really boring dressers -- you pick.

And this beautiful bunch of pretties was delivered to me New Years Eve.

I can't remember being this excited about starting a new year in a loooooooonnnnng time!!!

I did an install over the break. This is a sneak peek of a major element of the room! It is a huge painting - any guesses on who it is??

hint -- it is my 10 year clients favorite singer

This was her reaction when she saw the room for the first time. 

I am still waiting on a few smaller pieces and then I will do a post on it. 

There is a ton of painted vintage furniture that I worked on for this room. While I was outside last week painting a chest with some horribly smelly spray paint, I started hearing crazy loud beeps. It took me a second to realize it was my house beeping - more specifically, every smoke detector in my house. Panic stricken, we ran through the house trying to figure out where the smoke and burning smell was coming from. Every door was thrown open, yelling and barking was happening, every floor was thoroughly run threw, the fire extinguisher was located, the electrical panel was flipped off...but we couldn't find the source!!!!!!  

And then we did.....I was boiling water for some tea.....I started it when I first started painting the furniture {I had been painting a long time, ya'll}. It evaporated and the pot was cooking. Not tea to drink, mind you, tea to stain some fabric for another project....obviously.

If you are ever super bored and need some cheap entertainment, make sure all 6 of your cats and your 3 dogs are in the house and then set every smoke detector in your house off. Be prepared for some ridiculous panic to ensue....

Here's to a new year of chaos, fun design and new projects!!!!
