Painting

F.A.Q.

If you emailed me or facebooked me or tweeted me, or otherwise contacted me psychically?
I AM GOING AS FAST AS I CAN.

Your comments and messages have overwhelmed me with gratitude AND fear that you will think I am ignoring you.

You’ve made me laugh hysterically. You’ve endorsed my belief in unicorns.  You’ve encouraged me to hoard-on.  Which is similar to rock-on.  But without leather pants or electric guitars.

You people have changed my entire worldview.  But not one of you has sent me a clone of myself, which is what I REALLY need.

I WANT to talk to ALL of you.  In fact, it’s the ONLY thing I want to do.  Also, I want to invite you all over for a costume party.  Because FINALLY I have met people to whom I would NOT NEED TO EXPLAIN WHY I would have a costume party on a Wednesday afternoon.

Paul says I cannot do that.  I’m not sure why.  I mean, I told him you are ALL JUST LIKE ME.

So in the meantime, until I can convince him, some of you have questions. Burning questions.  And to spare you any more agony over paint colors and ottomans, here’s a Q. and A.

Tufted linen ottoman and coffee table.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Front Porch. Epilogue.

Has anyone seen my concentration?
I’ve been trying to finish this post for three days, but my brain keeps wandering off…  The kind of stealth abandonment where it sneaks away, unsupervised and unnoticed.

Squandering your thoughts on the consideration of things that are clearly a total waste of time.  And yet seem entirely necessary.

For example:
A Pinterest board dedicated to why Karl Lagerfeld is insane.  Which would also be a Pinterest board dedicated to why Karl Lagerfeld is awesome.

Wrap around Victorian front porch

In comparison, the final Front Porch post is boring. But that’s what you’re getting.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Front Porch – Part 2 of 3 – where we paint stuff, and then paint more stuff.

When I used to give people directions to our house, I would tell them to look for the skinny blue house with bright purple shutters.

Restoring our Victorian home... painting and begining the front porch project.

And purple foundation.  And purple doors.  And purple eaves.
And purple everything.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
