For some reason, this Monday (which was on tap to be calm and collected) ended up being mad .... MAD!!!
I was all set to post a wonderfully relaxed and enlightening blog post ... but that just didn't happen and I've still a thousand miles to go ... so ...
I wanted to share this with you. My sister and her husband sent this to us for Christmas and we LOVE it. What a wonderful way to do photography and make it unique. Also, since my husband is an iron worker by trade, it really was an especially thoughtful and perfect gift.
Thanks Cyndie & Paul!
Our last name is Glover - see it?
And this is what it looks like when you walk in our front door. I know we will raise the plaque soon so you can actually read it right away. I hate to admit this, but we just got Christmas all put away yesterday! We both ended up pretty sick right after Christmas and it really postponed our "bringing in the New Year". But hey, we're here now! The main lighting fixture is from the original household. Sometime in the 20's or 30's. It's beautiful, but doesn't photograph as lovely in the evening. I will try to remember to post a day time shot soon. . . if it ever quits raining/snowing.
I managed to finish another sketch book cover for a sweet friend and wanted to share that too! It's a woven cover. I've learned a lot about doing these now ... I will definitely be changing my approach! But anyway, here is the 2nd cover in my repertoire!
Art work is by the incredible Tammy Brinkley, "Keep Calm and Carry On"
A little rick rack for some sassy flavor
And this is the woven cover! Fun, huh? My friend loves purple so that was the theme. I really have found a new love. Next on my agenda are computer sleeves. I've probably told you that already. This aging thing makes memory interesting ... and then some ;-).
And here is my Christmas present from my sweetie. It is in our bathroom. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! It doesn't photograph as beautifully as it looks ... so you must stop by and look at it in person!
For those of you who have never been to our house, it was originally built in 1924 by a man named D.K. Jobe. I am sure this room was added on in the 40's or later. We uncovered a wonderful brick chimney. We took out the RV shower and gross bathtub, and added a Claw foot tub (on a pedestal). We still need to do flooring, but we have a Victorian them going now and it just looks lovely with the chandelier. I am SO excited.
So, that's my artsy update for this Mad Monday! Hope all of you are being super creative and having a wonderful New Year thus far!
