Remodel Day #6 & "Pink Saturday"!

Okay okay, it's still early here in the west, chicks!! Just got up and have part done from last night, but needed more photos for ya.

Not much different from yesterday except more mud on the walls and he's to come back today for 3rd mudding and texturing. Then monday we'll paint it and it'll be done except for the "decorating"! *Smile*

Close up of a basket I keep things in.

My first attempt at painting on something "round"! Eeegads, what a time that was. I'll get better though.........I think!

A tribute to my group on ebay. Oh my, how I love those special chickadees! Simply the best ever............

A rose painting a woman was going to throw away and I said send it to me and I'll display it!!! Can you imagine? It's just gorgeous.

Very closeup of one of my birdhouses in my collection.
A sign I bought on ebay because it touched my heart........ ;-)

More "fluff" laying around this house. Always "PINK" fluff though!

The beginning of one of my paper roses. I must get back to them, but blogging keeps getting in the way......and remodeling........and cleaning...........and cooking........and laundry..........and my affair with Tom Selleck and Clint Eastwood! Hah, as if?????

And this is the lovely paper wrapped around the last pictures. You'll see it when you get down to the bottom. I put the little decoupaged hangers on there because they have PINK roses on them and contrast with that wild and crazy paper!!!!!! Wooooohoooo.

My very first painting that I ever considered selling on ebay. I guess no one else thought I should have considered selling it because it didn't. Humbled me, but I don't care. I love it and proudly hang it in my house. So when I'm rich and famous from painting roses and running around in my Mercedes with a chauffeur and thumbing my nose at all of them and wearing those bustiers and hot pants and showing off this hot bod, I can laugh and go nananananana, right??!?!!! And if you believe that, you really ARE in lala land, sweet chicks. I don't want riches; I HAVE them! I have my kids and Love Bunny!!! Yesssssssss, who could ask for anything more than that?!??!

A very sweet and talented lady, Miss Doodle, gave me this lovely roses painting. (It is but a snippet of the whole canvas.) And for that she is in my thoughts almost daily because it hangs on the wall across from me here in my office/computer room.

Another painting that touched my heart from Lorena. It's on the same wall and I see it every single day!

A lot of women send me things for helping them with their computers and technical stuff because I am a techie. This is what one sweet lady sent me - 2 lovely rose paintings. I know, I know, you're asking how can this "beautiful HOT se*y nana chick" be so techie??? I don't know, just lucky I guess!! But I help anyone with anything I can about computers and blogging and photography. Now, don't beat the door down asking me things. I'm busy with the remodeling, ya know!!!

Can you believe this?!?!? I received these in the mail yesterday from Joanne after winning the delightful D R E A M letters from her. BUT can you even guess what they are??? At first I wondered why she would send me some elegant gloves with fancy polka dots on them. And then I picked them up and they're rubber gloves!! Yes, gardening gloves, but ya know what, my sweet chickadee?? I just may wear them out to Applebee's tonight with my "not-so-elegant" attire. Hey, I live in Ideeeeeho, ya know!!! Formal is a crease in your jeans and spit shined boots!!!

And finally, does this say it all?!?!?! The letters/word I won from Joanne.

  23. I love the arched doorway! Your remodel is looking so great. I bet you're getting so excited to decorate!!!

  24. You are so cute and funny! I totally pictured you as being from NYC!

    Your pics of roses remind me of a VERY NICE oil rose painting that I bought at an antique store many, many moons ago...I never got it framed and then I started leaving my BH&G tastes behind with the move out of our old bungalow and into this 70's quad, I sold it for a few bucks at a garage sale...but now I am kicking myself because I am going to do my basement in Beach Cottage, so it would have been perfect in there...oh well!

    I will have to check out your ebay page sometime, do you etsy, too?


  25. Happy Pink Saturday Connie; You are such a witty Chickie. Oh and what beautiful pretties you have. Your redo is looking good. Have a good weekend.


  26. I have a bigger mess in my craft room and I'm not remodeling!!!Well I love all those wonderful pink roses - you deserve a nice pink computer, miss techie!

    Cori G.

  35. I love your roses! I am so impressed knowing you are a techie (techy, teckee, te-keee)--you know what I mean! I am clueless if things go bad around here--I have to call my friend's 18 yr old son--he's built computers!!! I am green with envy that you won the Dream give-away. I already had a spot to hang those letters---guess I'll just have to find some on my own! I can't believe you let blogging get in the way of spending time with Clint and Tom!!! OK, I was doubled over on that line! You are too funny!

  36. Hi Connie, Happy Pink Saturday! So many pretty things here, you do have alot of pink! You remodel is coming along very nicely.
    Blessings, Shirl

  37. Hello Connie, I see your remodeling is coming along! I love all your pink pictures!
