I'm repainting my studio.

I am painting my studio this VERY happy PINK color. My inspiration is this vintage sewing box that I found at a second hand store last week (LOVE IT!!!!) and this fabulous fabric to accent the room by either making curtains or a tablecloth with. I worked all Saturday prepping and then painting. It takes FOREVER to empty a room and tape off the molding and windows. I painted the first coat and need to paint another coat tomorrow. Boy is it PINK! I'm a little worried, but after consulting my with daughters, we feel (hope) that the furniture and paintings will cover most of the walls, so only a moderate amount of pink will really be showing. What I really LOVE about the fabric is the GREEN. This whole color palette just makes me SMILE!!!

When we moved into this house 2 1/2 years ago, I thought that medium grey walls would be perfect in my studio because the color would be neutral and would not effect the lighting and colors on my palette. The moment I started painting, I knew it was a mistake, (for me, I just love saturated color...) But with a whole house to decorate, I went ahead and finished it. I didn't love going into my studio like I used to at the old house. So I am looking forward to a fresh start with this new color palette in the room. Below is the grey.
Onto more interesting things...Today after church, Carma and Daisy found the "Big Girl" panties that I made years ago (and wore the other night for the "Where's Waldo?" activity) when I was in a few melodramas in Cave Creek. (I played buxom call girls or "villianesses", and for a brief time I actually wanted to be an actress!) Anyway, the girls walked into the room like this....

ha-ha!!!!!!!!
