Painting furniture, part 2

These are the furniture pieces I want to paint like these bloggers did. The dresser and nightstand have been hanging out like that, stacked in my living room, for a good two months now. What can I say, I'm on a really tight deadline.

These should look just lovely in white with some new hardware, no? Based on my current rate of progress, they should be completed just in time for the next presidential election. whoopee!

Green Pepper Gone Bad

Remember my super-ball-sized green pepper? In the hopes of cultivating a slightly larger pepper, I resisted picking it for several weeks to allow it to grow. The result: I now have a wrinkly, soft, past-its-prime pepper. Drats!

Container garden of 2009 was a bust.

Handyman gets married

My brother got married last Saturday, and thus my live-in handyman is no more. Now, he's my be-there-in-15-minutes handyman. Muah ha ha! Going to go work on my to do list now so he has stuff to do when he gets back from his honeymoon. Muah ha ha!

Yes yes, enjoy that cake while you can. There's work to be done.

P.S. Congratulations!

Dirty Sunset

Please enjoy this dirty sunset courtesy of my sister's sap + dust + insect + grass + washer fluid covered windshield and the sun, of course.

Ah, nature.

Brown Paper Packages


Nope, I wouldn't mind one bit. I'd gladly come home to a pile of packages on my front stoop every night.

That's shoes on the left, shoes in the middle and shoes on the right. Just kidding, the two boxes on the right are sandals. Kidding, again. The ones one the right are mints. Believe me?
