Add to this the fact that I have about three hours during the day when there's enough natural light in the house to get nice pictures for you, during which I was working and the house was torn apart yesterday, I have no shots of anything I did over the weekend. So you don't get to see:
- The little semi-shrine for Ganesh I created in the living room with a little statue I recently got in a raffle, and a side table I painted yesterday.
- Any of the "new" houseplants I did yesterday - same plants, actually, but some in new pots, some in freshly painted pots, and most in new places in the house. Or...
- An astounding, breathtaking gift from a friend which came completely by surprise yesterday: a queen-sized silk quilt made of sari borders patched together, handmade for my friend in India many years ago while she was there, by a local shop. This she gave to me yesterday, simply because (a) she wasn't using it anymore and (b) she knows I adore Indian textiles. I think I'm actually in shock. It's exactly what I've always wanted on my bed; but with eight four-legged companions, two of which enjoy fucking up fabrics, there's no WAY I'm using it as a bedspread. I think I'll find a way to mount it on a wall as an art piece. Have I mentioned, by the way, how much I love tapestries and fabric art on the wall? <3
So: camera battery on payday. Until then...we'll see what happens. Hopefully that week I'll also find out that I've won the HGTV/World Market Antonio Treatment sweepstakes and have a $10,000 gift card to my favorite store. :o)
