Alas! It Begins

Well life intrudes: for the last few years my friend Julie and I have been helping a retired art professor who has been renovating and restoring a house from the late 1700's. We are somewhat experts on painting and not afraid of working with oil paint so we got the job. Don thinks we are pretty special painters and the pay is good so Julie takes the afternoon off from her regular job and we go paint for Don for 3-4 hours once or twice a week in the summer. Consequently my projects here will have to wait for the weekend to progress any further....oh well :(
Bonus! They have an amazing garden and are very generous with cuttings and transplants :)


  1. This sounds like FUN!!! Wish I could help too. And Jack the Werecat is adorable. There has to be a story behind his name! LOL!
    Thanks for visiting my blog today!

  2. Hi Diane and visiting your blog is always a pleasure! Yes Jack looked like a werewolf as a baby. He has he disposition of an angel and is incredibly soft (like rabbit fur or fluff).
    Thanks for visiting my blog also, I am not very good yet with computer graphics or Photoshop but hopefully I will become more proficient over the summer. Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh my, I adore someone with cuttings to share with me!

  4. Hi Brenda! Yes Don and Diane are great about sharing the bounty of their garden. I got a baby Burning Bush today! Theirs is the biggest one I have ever seen, I hope this one does as well.
