old crush and old trunks...

Why do winter colds last so long?
It has been about 3 weeks for me.
Longer for Jim.
Seems like forever.
I am finally on the zpac.  I actually stayed on the couch all day yesterday and caught up on some taped shows and watched a few episodes of Big Valley on MeTV.
(Did anyone else have a crush on Heath?)

Anyway, I am hoping that tomorrow I can get back to painting.
The big push is on as our 3rd annual
At Home With White Show
at the shop is coming up on April 6th and 7th.

This is my tent space from last year

Prepping for the show, in addition to keeping my booth full (I just sold two big items) and working on some winter projects around my home is going to keep me very, very busy for the next few months.
Treasures have been starting to pile up downstairs as they get cleaned up or painted waiting for the show like this old steamer trunk ~ before...

And after...

Jim actually brought the old trunk home one day along with this other one...

This old beauty has already been painted and brought to the shop...

I love them in white, don't you?

Thank you for stopping by!

That camel back trunk is a lot like one my mom has. It came over on a covered wagon and was her hope chest. I love the way it looks painted white...wonder if I could convince her to paint it? Hope you get better soon!

I hope you recover quickly so you can get everything done! The detail really pops on those old trunks when they're painted white. I don't think they will last too long!

Sounds like a fun busyness getting ready for the spring show! I know what you mean about colds and such hanging on. Trying to shake one myself.
Thanks for coming by and always such nice comments.

Hi Sandi, your show looks already beautiful with your lovely things, although I know I couldn't part with the trunk, and yes, I love it in white! I am now following your lovely blog (I know you were following me before) and would love you to follow my new blog! It's great to be getting my old blogging buddies back! Your blog is full of inspiration and creativity! Simply divine! xo Pam
