Early this past Spring one of my long time friends called me to tell me she was coming to town. After chatting for a few minutes she said she found something in storage she wanted to have hand painted with roses She went on to say she'd purchased the piece many years before and it no longer fit in with her decor. She actually had some choice words to say about the piece and went on to lament how much she had grown to absolutely hate it.
After describing the piece to me I told her to bring it over and I'd giver her a price to repaint it.
Well...when she walked in the door carrying the vintage hamper you see above I couldn't contain my laughter...nor could she! The piece she was WHINING to me about was a something I'd painted for her back in 2003. I nearly fell on the floor in hysterics when I saw it... We giggled for over an hour...not kidding!
ARE THOSE SUPPOSE TO BE ROSES????
I haven't repainted the old hamper yet, but I'm going to soon! Those roses look like piles of HAY to me! ARGH!
Today I met one of my Oklahoma bloggie friends down at my booth space so she could pick up a special order. Since I FORGOT (WHAT?) my camera I won't tell you who she is...I'll let her share with you if she so desires.
Anyway, she found this amazing fireplace screen and it was a fun piece to repaint....
Today I'm thinking CHANGE IS GOOD!
My Mr. AGPMan is taking me to see Mr. Barry Manilow tonight and I'm more than excited.
My friend Denise from
is a huge fan of Mr. Dreamy and has seen him in concert a gajillion times. I told her I was going to stand up in the concert and scream out:
MY FRIEND DENISE IS IN LOVE WITH YOU
(I may do it, too!)
This is my first time to hear him in person even though I've loved his music for years. No yellow ribbons in my hair...but maybe PINK!
Love to you...
