I am hoping to be accepted into a show next month, so am busy completing a lot of 'started' things that need tweaking to finish. A friend I met online, Lisa, who has a booth at the Brother's Antique Mall in Medina, called Rye Lane Design, [PLEASE PATRONIZE], was over the other night and we were each teaching and learning from each other. She developed a spreadsheet for all my salable projects and I think it will cover my house taxes. So, as Maria would say, "fingers on the cross."
Here are some of my latest endeavors...
This is a pretty cool Vintage file cabinet with white oak interior. I am second coating tonight and distressing in the morning. The color is really ALIVE. Definitely growing on me. It may be my new go-to color.
The next piece has a story, which I will share when I finish it.
Right now it has been thoroughly disinfected and looks something like this. Well, maybe a step different but I didn't snap a picture and I am wall to wall in my dining room tonight. It should be done by Wednesday.
This is a Sue box too. Just a plain box stored in the basement.
I gave it some color...
...and, some hardware.
This may have been a cheese box (?) once upon a time. Not sure. It was a gift from friend David. The wooden spool I found in a sewing machine I bought (I may have 8-but I also give them away to people who need them after I tinker with the tension so it is usable. I thought the spool had quilting thread on it, but it is a thin wire that will be used in a muck rake project. Looking better-no new pic of it, but....
Here is the cheese box (green cheese?)
The next piece is another Sue box. I love these. I think it said raisins on the side. I copied it on a salvaged drawer I'm working on and aside from no hole in the handle, think it turned out pretty good.
This is a gift for Max and Blair's Engagement, so don't spoil the surprise or I won't share things with you in the future. Not kidding.
Lynn did the lettering. She is sooooooo good.
I know I haven't had a Sunday Song for a long time, probably because I have been to every other church but St. Ambrose's 5:00 lately. Tonight, I showed up at Assumption's 6:00 to hear my niece on the baby grand. They played Seek Ye First, a long time favorite of mine, especially with the descant. So I'm sharing a YouTube one with you and I have not pre-screened it as my audio is not working. It says it is combined with Pachelbell's Cannon in D, so how can you miss? I wasn't sure I spelled Pachelbell right so I right clicked to see, their only suggestion was "bellyache". So listen to this selection and quit your bellyachin'.
To all the Dad's out there...hope you had a good day. To my sons....I think you all have special talents in that field, especially since you really didn't know what it was to have a dad for all that long. Some of your children have had a living dad longer than you. Stay the path. I love you. And those of you "up there", keep the door open.
