On Monday, we'll get back to doing Small Things together! Woot! I've missed getting together each day for our daily dose of fun and accomplishment.....and I must say my house will be grateful for the attention. Let me ask you: Do you subscribe to Home Sanctuary via email so that you won't miss a single post? Please don't tell me "no." :) Here - I'll make it easy for you!
If email subscriptions aren't your thing, you could subscribe in a reader of your choice by clicking here.
And speaking of subscriptions, I'll be sending out a newsletter this weekend and I'd hate to have you miss it. I'll be updating you on the gift book I've been trying to finish working on as well as talking about putting together a Company Girl "Real Life" Get Together! Here's the link for the sign up page. (Don't worry...I don't flood your email box with junk - I send it just a few times per year.)
I've come CLOSE to finishing the horse murals. I took off over a week, so this has really gotten dragged out - but I'm feeling pretty good about the results.
The bathroom "tack room" got a signboard, bridle, rope and a bunch of doo-dads. Sometime I'll have to show ya'll how to paint greenery and flowers because it is SIMPLE! You could do it, I promise.
Tack supplies, complete with a little furry friend.
And another one, with cheese.
Random stones and greenery break up the huge expanse of beige walls. There will be some framed prints on each side of the armoire, so the stones will recede into the background. The homeowner liked the "wood" wainscot so much that we brought more of it out into the bedroom area.
The built-in desk needed something, so I've painted more stones and I have the start of a hen and chicks going. It would be cute to have some painted chicken wire, but I'll have to feel inspired to add it and I'm kinda tired.
There will be a playful Jack Russell Terrier on a hay bale, and you can see he is base-coated in. I could not get the homeowner's dog to sit still long enough to take a photo to get the markings right so I gave up and moved on to the chicken.
Now that the furniture is in place, the horses peeking through the barn door look right at home. There are only a few more details to finish up and then I'll be able to put my brushes up for awhile. Whew!
Well, have YOU had a good week? We'd love to hear about it! Link up below for our weekly feature, Company Girl Coffee. It's really simple and it's a great way to get to know some delightful friends. Then venture out and visit as many blogs as you can! Easy, peasy.
