One Saga after another...

Hi folks...I'm not exactly in a goody goody gumdrops mood today...I seem to have picked up a bit of a tummy upset...up several times during the night speaking to hughie is guaranteed to make me a tad on the grumpy side and yesterday didn't go to plan either...for starters the sun shone again...crikey 2 days in a row must be some kind of world record and it's not exactly an incentive to stay indoors and crack on with the painting but with time running out...it was big girl knicker time again and a hot date with a stepladder and roller...
and silly me for assuming that pale cream is going to cover the original mocha latte brown in 2 coats...yes for the third time I'll be hopping up and down that ladder again today...no doubt whispering lots of unmentionable words in the process but there's always the in-between waiting for coats to dry time so I didn't exactly miss out on spending time in the sun...sitting in the garden with a cuppa and doing absolutely nothing but watch the plants grow was bliss and hey all that rain and the little bit of sunshine has brought them on a treat...


and I even managed to snatch a little bit of a play in the cubbyhole with the Black Magic Goody Box from Craftwork Cards...now don't get too excited...it's just a quick little project decorating an old Harvey Nichols biscuit tin I found when clearing out the kitchen cupboards transformed into a rather posh container for ribbons or buttons...


Time to don the painting glad rags and get to it and I'll see you all tomorrow

Your plants are looking good and healthy Kath - shame about your tummy.....hope it clears up very soon. The tin looks great too - I keep promising to do something like that but then more important things come first and the tins line up and 'glare' at me....
Good luck with the painting.
Hugs

Oh my god! You should remove the Brown color first and then painting in cream, otherwise it will take ages to get the exact texture you want :(
And wish you the best with your tummy xxx

Kat said...

Awww poor you Kath, hope you're feeling better now.

Love how you've altered that tin, it looks fabby.

Take care,

Kat xx

Hi Kath,sorry to hear about tne tummy problem hope youv'e seen the last of it. Your flowers are looking great, they are amazing considering the rubbish weather we've been having. I like what you've done to the tin, you can pay a fortune in the shops for them...Trish

Sorry to hear you're not well, there's a lot of it going around at the moment, most of our family have had some form of bug or another. Drink 7Up with a little sugar in it(to get rid of the fizz). It helps to rehydrate you and settles the stomach believe it or not. Good advice from my GP years ago. Lovin the Harvey Nicks biscuit tin.
Take care and get well soon
