Some of you may remember this sign.
I made it last summer from scraps
from Steve's wood pile.
It was the boost that I needed to play
with our living room.
Four years ago I started with these
Walmart light filtering curtains.
They are fine and fit the purpose of
privacy and budget.
When we moved in paint, plumbing,
and a new roof took priority.
Saturday I went to Lowes
and purchased pleated blinds
They look so much nicer in our
little cottage home.
I'm dancing my happy dance :)
Back to the Farmhouse sign . . .
It inspired me to try painting again.
I have canvases in the barn loft
that I have had since before I injured my right hand 8 years ago.
I wanted something with blues and greens
and that had a Spring feeling to it.
Anyway, I had fun painting it.
It's not what I did 8 years ago
before my injury,
but hey, I'm enjoying knowing
that my hand works this well, LOL.
After a year of therapy 3 days a week,
I finally got my thumb and pointer fingers
moving at normal function.
After that first year, I just kept pushing it,
and today there is not much that I can't do
with that marvelous thumb and finger.
For any of you that needed to hear this,
I just want to encourage you to never give up.
On that note . . . I'll say,
Your blogging sister,
