Texture Tuesday - L O V E

2/12/13


Oh glorious glory day Mr sunshine has found his way home. We finally waved Mr gloomy
goodbye this morning and have since been chatting over a nice hot cup of coffee. :)

Today is Texture Tuesday over at Kim's...I've spent all week racking my brain as to what I would share
for the 'love' theme this week. 
ooohhh...I could share a pic of hubby..if only he would change out of his Mr Grinch 
loungies. 

After 2 pots of coffee yesterday, and dealing with the gloomiest day ever an idea began to emerge... 
Yes..oh YES! It would be perfect for the love theme!
the pretty little bluebird coasters had been made by my mother in law for my birthday
24 year's ago. They had long been forgotten until last week  the clever idea filled my head
and I busied myself cleaning out the dark crevices of our dining room buffet.
Years upon years of stuff had been shoved haphazardly into every spot of space
but way in the back under the stacks of school papers, wrapping paper, deviled egg platter (oh, there you are..) huge 3D map of a working volcano son made in 6th grade..and finally a smashed open box 
of Kleenex...the pretty thing was. 
 Oh what a beauty, why did I ever put it away...
I presented it to hubby and showed him how wonderful it was at holding his can of pop.
Once I told him his mother had made it..the funny squinty eye look was replaced with tears a smile & a nod.

Little pretty now sits proudly on hubby's side table next to his well read 'hot rod' magazine and
I swear.. I can see that little blue bird's chest puff up just a little more every time hubby
pulls out a coaster to use. :)

  

This picture says it all. Her name is Tracy...she was born in the bottom drawer of my dresser 
Her brother's & sister have long since found happy homes..but I just couldn't
part with sweet little Tracy. That unconditional pet love is  unlike any other. :)
I hope you enjoy the pictures this week.
Happy Valentines day to you my chickies!
much love,
Paula

FYI- bluebird picture layered soft light 100% with Kim's sybil texture.
Tracy picture layered soft light 100% with Kim's edith texture with a brush used to clean the face.

A little Bit Of Happy

2/9/13


Mr Sunshine Hasn't visited us in days...and Mr gloomy has decided 
that he really likes it here and has chosen to stay a bit longer.
I'm at my happy place here in hopes that
where ever Mr Sunshine is...you, my dear readers, will let him know that he is sorely missed
& that I'd love to have coffee with him..very soon.

Much love,
Paula



Texture Tuesday with Kim - Color Pop!

2/5/13

 
Gotta get me some color!
 
Texture Tuesday today is all about a color pop...and boy am I in need of one!
 
The ground is white & it's snowing yet again...so using color this week makes my heart smile.
 
The darlin' fabric is from an old sheet I've carried with me since I left home at 17...many moon's ago.
It was once an old bed sheet. I LOVE the colors...and just think, these fabrics are SO in
with the younger crowd these days.LOL
The pretty shaker's are glass & because the tops are so degraded now..they are just hutch pretties.
I love Daisies... and Peonies...both have equal love. :)
Hubby was such a darling and brought the flowers home yesterday.
 
This pic was a simple one this week...just one layer of Kim's '-45' texture..
used on overlay at 100%. A soft light brush at 15% was used to lighten up the front Daisy.
 
That's it..simple. Hope it makes your heart warm.
 
Love you all and as always...THANK YOU for visiting & commenting!!
Paula
