The Irony Of Our Talents

The ironic thing about having a joy and passion for something is that you don't always get to implement it how you envisioned. Let me clarify....

Being a person who LOVES painting and has educated myself on ways to continually improve, I have had the honor this past week to find a precious hour here and there each day looking down the line at this....





Yes...I have taken on the task of staining our backyard fence.  I still have this...





And this....



And this....






Love the Cabot stain - recommended by a professional painter @ Orange! Thank.you.sir!





The fence is already looking great now that the stain is getting on there!
Have you ever hand brushed a long fence???

On the brighter side of things, here are some fun finds I spotted @ a recent trip to ROSS.
















LOVED this last one here!!! It is gorgeous!





Enjoy your weekend! My sister's wedding is next Friday! My how times flies!!! ;-)

I've stained a deck before like that and I really don't ever want to do it again. Instead, I'd hire someone like you, who loves it! :) Love the new header image!!

Thanks Kristy! It's been challenging, but fun to figure out the design side of things. Slowly, but surely. :-)
