Show And Tell Friday
Kelli hosts a show and tell Friday. Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!
I have been wanting to get some things painted for a long time. It seems like life is just flying by these days. If I can sit down and paint or play the piano it soothes the savage beast in me. =) I had some things that NEEDED to be painted and time was running out, and then something that I wanted to paint. Last year I grew birdhouse gourds in my garden. I let them dry out and then I scrubbed a couple of them to get the yuck off. I tried to cut neat holes in them with a knife, but pieces broke off, so I did the best I could. Today, I finally painted on them. I will be adding some varnish to the outside and then they can be hung up. My neighbors the Wonderfuls =) (I can hear her PUHLEEZE) children came to help me one day. They scrubbed the rest of my gourds for me. So, once I cut the holes, I will be painting on them as well. I can't show you the other things I painted as one already went home to its owner and the other is a gift and the recipient sometimes reads my blog. =) Here is a picture of the gourds.
