Whew, it is almost too hot to do anything. It is morning and already 90 something
with a heat index of 100, which will climb to 110 today. A good day to stay
inside and catch up on blog reading and posting.
I wanted to share these photos with you today. I went to a very fun
rock painting class. We turned these large rocks into turtles. No Picasso's
here, but lots of laughing and creating our turtle friend.
This one was especially cute with blue swirls instead of the
design we were shown to paint. Yay for creative souls.
This one has the sweetest little face and his legs make him look
a little like a crab, don't they?
This was a very lumpy odd shaped rock, so the turtle
is quite an original!
My rock wasn't smooth either, which made it harder to paint, but I
think it gives him great character. Isn't he sweet?
He is enjoying life on the patio now, next to some potted plants.
I have some smaller rocks I think I will turn into cute ladybugs.
Mr. Retro always has projects going. We picked up this Lane cedar chest
last year for $10. The finish was in very sorry shape, so we elected to
paint it. It looks very mid-century modern with gloss black and green paint.
(Excuse the light reflections. It is curing on the porch.)
I kind of cheated here. I used the same bowl and candlestick holders
on this weeks table. I couldn't resist when I spied this tablecloth
with the red and purple teapots & teacups.
How cute is this design? I cut some Crepe Myrtle for the center.
You can tell by looking at the chairs underneath, the size and scope of this
gorgeous tree. It will bloom into September. We have two others in the yard,
all a slightly different shade of pink. I will share the other two, which are
smaller, in another post.
Try your best to stay cool! This heat is so unhealthy. Take extra care of
your pets too. Gosh we still have August to get through!
