The Egg and I

Today's post is brought to you by this (my favorite paintbrushes of course):

I'm in the studio whipping up some painted goodness. Working on two pieces for my bedroom. I tend to create art and either sell or give it away while my own house suffers from undecorativeness (is that a word?!) It's time that changed. The pics are a sneak peek of what is on my workstation today...

I was blog hopping and saw that Semiprecious Salvage is raising adorable black chickens. We happened to be talking about a chicken coop last week. The teen wants to do a final project for her Architectural Engineering course and suggested a playhouse out back. I asked for a chicken coop. Why not? (I've always wanted a farm.) DH says no way in heck is that gonna happen. One more thing to take care of. In all fairness, we're not very diligent keep-up-with-things-for-years type people. We've managed to love and feed our cats and pup but chickens? Outside? In the snow? I don't see it happening. I told DH we could bring the coop in the garage during the winter. He just snorted at me. It would be fun though.

Yesterday I was searching for some words for a piece I'm working on. I pulled The Egg and I off my shelf to use but couldn't find what I wanted (my book is a vintage 1945 copy.)


Then on this post at Semiprecious Salvage, a poster mentioned a movie based on the very book I had just looked through! Now I must see that movie. I'm very impressionable see? hehe I've ordered it from the library. I'm going to quickly read the book so I can know what the movie will be about. Isn't it fun how our lives can connect over the internet in so many ways?

Back to the project and listening to Pride & Prejudice on tape. Two birds with one stone you know...

P.S. Wishing you a happy Easter! May God's love wind through your life, may you see him in everything. Thanks be to God for taking on our transgressions and making us whole.

Finger painting is always best!! Can't wait to see what your finished pieces look like. Love the rhinestones! Tell your teenager that her bunny needs a black circle around one eye and we can call her Snowy!!!
