At the end of this past week, I unpacked these little lovelies.
I have a bit of a thing for cowhide.
Well not really.
We just like it- being cattle farmers and all.
I decided that I wanted lighter coloured ones in the family room.
I am going to lighten everything up in here.
And the youngest is very excited to be allowed to have the dark cushions in his bedroom.
I had to fight him for them earlier in the year.
He is still coveting them.
When he gets on the lounge he cuddles them.
And I caught him with the new light ones all lined up around him on a chair.
He was picking his favourite.
It has been incredibly windy here in the last few days.
I am thinking of entering a photographic competition, and the first part of the brief is capturing 'wind'.
If I ask the males in the house I would get a completely different idea on the subject I am sure.
I do not want to capture THAT wind.
So I am trying to figure out how to get the money shot.
Trees and leaves,
Tonight I was having a play at sunset time.
This is what I was served up.
I played with the settings, trying to bottle that wind again!!
The painting Olympics is nearing its closing ceremony!
I made some shelves to sit on top of my washer dryers as I am a bit concerned about the heat that builds up when they are in the dry cycle.
Of course I am so slack and have stuff all over the tops of them!!
I bet once I have them in place I will keep the tops clear!
They have had several coats, I use the last bits of paint in my pots to give them and the stools their coats.
I have put three coats of topcoat on the table bottom.
3 coats on the stools and one topcoat on the chairs.
What is the go for the chairs, would 2 do the job or do you think I need 3?
My wee cackling friend came back to visit me outside my window at work on Friday.
