constant readers of this blog know how i love the movie "you've got mail". i know many lines of the movie by heart and while working on some projects over the weekend i heard tom hanks saying "i've got a project that needs . . . tweaking". it stuck with me and today's post is all about my weekend projects.
first an update on presley. the good news is that he gets around fairly well and i can take him on walks. the bad news is that he poops out about 1.5 blocks from our house and i carry him back home. he seems to really enjoy the fresh air but when his legs give out he is done and mama must step into rescue her old sweetheart. above shows how badly presley needed a good haircut and grooming.
here he is all trimmed up and showered. i still need to trim up his legs some more but it was a good start. he now gets a shower instead of a bath as he has a tendency to simply relax down into the warm bath water and i fear he will drown. with the shower i can hold him up better and he is much safer.
as promised i spent the better part of our rainy saturday in the art room. i applied a print of my sirena bella mermaid original collage to the above painted canvas and added the shells i collected in florida last october. it will hang in our guest bathroom.
the above is a 16" x 16" board painted black which i added mounted prints of the rusty old car photos i took this summer. i plan to hang it in my family room.
i painted this canvas a chocolate brown and then added mounted mini prints of some of my country vignette photos which i took the day after i got my new nikon. this will hang in our master bedroom.
another canvas with my shadow shots photos mounted. i haven't picked a spot for this yet but know i want to hang it in the house somewhere.
i'm off to the kitchen to make zucchini bread and then take a bike ride.
take care to all of you!
