Vintage Shopping...
Wild Girl Shopping...
Frenchy Paris shop... Behind the scenes...



New parking structure made to look old...
Looks like a storm is coming...
Time to get home...
Back to the neighborhood... passing cottages...and bungalows along the way...
Back to my garden scattered with wonderful smelling paper whites...




and my "watch dogs"
Hope you enjoyed my walk... I sure did! Unfortunately... I have no time to paint today... BUT please tell me which photo I should paint!

Off on a Walk... back with a post by noon...

While I'm off snapping photos for my post and getting a little fresh air and exercise... here is another view of the Music Room harlequin firebox... YESSSSS... the painting is by moi... but it is a reproduction of a Henri Matisse painting... You can see more paintings by moi that hang throughout my home here and here...

Thank you ALL for your input! It will remain and be sealed later today... please come back... I will make sure I take interesting photos... and I will do a FAST painting of my favorite walk photo!

My Sunday Paint Project...

I have been wanting to do SOMETHING to this firebox area for a long time... so yesterday... I pulled out the paint cans, paint brushes and drop cloth... Drawing tools...
Laid out my pattern...
And began painting... first black...

Then white...
And voila... by evening... a NEW look!
I will be doing some touch up here and there in the sunlight this week or painting over it... not sure if I like it or not... it has been white for so long... what do you think? I will definitely be keep the inside of the box black and adding mirror to the back of the firebox... to reflect candles! The firebox was never a fireplace... but it was used with a radiator at one time... I wish I had a photo of it originally (home built 1930).
