Our house was being shown tonight so we took the dogs for a walk. I took this picture, just a couple blocks from our house.
This is a picture from the front window of our new *borrowed* house on Vancouver Island.
My-My-My how my view is going to change...not just city to town, river to ocean, but the many different shades of green. One of my favorite colors..
First tho: We have to (sadly) sell our house here.
I did paint this shelf a few weeks ago...a gemstone green, go figure...and so far, I could have sold it 16x....but, Im thinking Im going to hoard it for myself, in our new place....because in my Calary house, I actually didnt have many of my own pieces I kept...a clock, my bedside tables, the Misters desk and thats about it. If this lil gem book shelf fits in the storage container on moving day, it was meant to be. If not, I've been given 16 phone numbers with the promise to drop everything and come and get it right away... Funny thing, when your spending an atrocious amount money to move stuff...you really really really want to make sure its stuff worth spending an atrocious amount of cash on to move.
I snuck this baby in the house a few weeks ago to my husband grumbling about something...I dunno what....*shrug*... Alright, I confess, I ignored him completly but I knew I wasnt going to do handpainted detail, so whippin it up in a few days was completly, abolutly do-able
Close up of the true color and the sa-weet hardware!
