My Masterpieces

I had to put a close-up of the hardest decorating task I have attempted. I bought two thrift store dressers for $15 each, and they were a nasty brown color. To make a long story short, I painted, wallpapered and covered with poly. (The wallpaper is French calligraphy. My cousin, MC Moroney, read my dressers and assured me there was nothing vile on them. You never know with those French people.) The work was tedious at times, but I am so happy with the result. You are not "wondering" are you?! Neither did Troy. :-) He was amazed! One last thing, I have a family member who has two little dressers that would match these. . . You are not allowed to pitch them at any point in your life. Ahem! I still have enough wallpaper to do them, too. I am not pointing fingers, but you know who you are, Kathy Moroney. :-)

Mama, you crack me up!!!

Oh, and you also disgust me w/ all your artsy-cutesy things. Everything so perfectly arranged, etc. I can barely draw a stick figure much less put things together in such a nice way. It really is a gift. "!" Wanna decorate my place? *grin*

Hey Mrs. C. Thanx for the really cool sterio!! (I just found out about your blog today via Titus' Blog.) Titus fixed it and it works great (due to some help from Good Will Electronics)! Thanx.

Becky, your talent is in expressing words. You always amuse me with your emails and notes. Consider publishing. :-) As for art. . .my stick figures look crippled!
