I began by organizing and sorting my collection
of art/inspirational/poetry books.
Then I cleared the desk and moved it.
I felt a sense of accomplishment,
but you know how it is…
as soon as something looks better,
you begin to notice the dingy walls…
better to paint now, before I go any further.
So everything back off the shelves,
and then it was off to the basement to search for paint.
I am not willing to spend any money that I can
find around the house.
I was lucky enough to find an ancient
can of antique white, that must of came with the house.
Meaning it must be at least 17 years old.
I tinted it with some craft paint,
I knew I would never use and painted the walls.
A peachy, yellowy color,
I am calling Angel’s Blush.
Then the baseboards and window frames
glossy white (that’s what the can said)
I put all of the shelves back up,
and took a picture for you.
They say (whoever they are) that
the devil is in the details.
I guess that means that’s where the fun is.
I am getting there one corner at a time.
I also finished last week’s painting
Clothed in the Sun.
I added some crystal for the 12 stars.
I have to thank everyone for all of the kindness
and encouragement you have given me on my journey
towards tranquility in my sacred spot!
Your comments really, really make me feel understood.
