Aaaah, Friday, how I love you! I’m sitting here with my plumeria candle burning, wine glass in hand, getting ready to hit the couch and DVR and thought I would add a quick post to start the weekend off right.  I had a busy night! I potted my tomato plant in a big planter out […]

It may be the fumes, but I’m sort of disappointed our master bath is almost done and doesn’t need anything else painted Here is another project I did with the same spray paint: http://paintedposies.com/2013/01/29/doorknobs-to-towel-hooks/ […]ReplyCancel

More time has lapsed between blog posts than I’d like, but it’s been a busy few days! I got my spring seeds planted, spray painted my doorknobs from Habitat for Humanity and started a new art project that I’ve come to realize won’t be finished for a while. I’m hoping to complete the doorknob project […]

Now that Phoenix has thawed from it’s impressive and unprecedented freeze, I am in MUCH better spirits! I am definitely a “valley girl” at heart! (shhh! don’t tell anyone I’m from Chicago! brrrr!)

hooray for 2013! Every year when January comes I get all excited to start over fresh and get some stuff done.  I think there’s two different kinds of people in this world: those who admit to making goals for the new year and those who claim they don’t do that sort of thing.  We can […]
