Oh Dreary Me

Seems I'm going from bad to worse in my blogging lately. It's not that I haven't been up to anything. I'm puttering about, that's for sure. The fact is, I've been working on this post for over a week now. I think my brain is just a tad scattered these days. The phone rings, I get up to answer it and just forget to come back to what I was doing. Pretty soon, I'll be lost altogether! You'll find me wandering around aimlessly at all hours of the day.

It's been really dreary here in Nashville for what seems like forever. I don't know when the last time we saw the sun. And so, I thought I'd just make my own spring by buying flowers in that pretty spring green tint.

Then I went out to our corkscrew willow which is just now budding.

Cut me some branches.

And put them in some old sap buckets to force.

I've moved them all about the place. Now they stink so I'm throwing them out. lol Oh well.

Last weekend, I finally got down to painting the boys' old nursery dresser. I first sanded it slightly.

Then primed it.

Finished it off in an old paint I found under the sink. This may be the color in my bedroom. Who knows. I'm not wise enough to mark my cans. Doy.

Went to Anthropologie and picked up some nifty drawer knows and added them. Mom's room looks finished once more. Perty. It only took me like a year to do this! Ooooof.

Wednesday, I went to a painting class. Beth and her mom were supposed to come out but momma was feeling bad so they stayed home to nurse the cold. I missed them. Pout.


Who doesn't love playing in paint?


Three little kitties.

Locked in the laundry room with a Harrods bag. Kitty-proofing 1-2-3. (Dave gorges then purges, so I leave them in there to do their stuff. YUK!)

And pretty new flowers that light up! Sweet.

The teenager is home for the weekend and we're going to see Alice in Wonderland, I hope. We tried to see it last weekend and just ran out of time! Hub is in China then off to Vietnam. Hmmmmm.

Ok, pressing PUBLISH now before I forget and walk away!!!

Glad to see you back. Waiting for signs of Spring can be hard when it seems to not be coming. Love your chest of drawers-it really looks great.

the dresser looks GREAT! Love that creamy color.....and the knobs are wonderful! I love glass knobs...
I also think it's wonderful you went to the painting class.......what a great way to get lost in yourself! I'm very impressed with your the shading you did! Now you must frame it and hang it!
