I promised the boy's Mother (Roma) that I wouldn't paint their newly renovated room a flourescent lemon grass green like they wanted....I talked them into light sky blue walls with just a brite green and navy stripe around the room...for their soccer theme. ...a house that just finished being renovated for a family of seven. WELL...you won't believe what color I'm now painting my new wall in the new part of the shop!!??.....LEMON GRASS GREEN!!! Also mixing it with some old doors I had....I hope those boys don't come over and see my wall color!!? Here are some pictures of the work we are doing for the Christmas Room, the Fall Room, and a Valentine area. The Americana and Patriotic display is finished and I'm breathing again! I've already had good response to having the Round Top Collection here with Showroom Status...that means a lot of examples to see or buy...and more people through the gallery! Here is some of the Spring stuff that is left and the new 4th of July items in the store...a big celebration in Round Top has inspired many of the pieces for this patriotic season. It has been fun to unpack and arrange and play with....and still a lot more to do to get ready for the Fall collection coming in late July and then Christmas arriving in late Sept....reminds me of when I had the store on the square!! And I have loved having more people through the shop already and we are even going to get together and have a sitting around and hook rugs day that I will host....should be lots of fun!!! Here are also pictures of my Mother's Day gift I picked and Dick paid the balance on....my painting from Mystele, called "BE STILL"....I love this painting and what it represents for me....and I showed it to Pilar who is my little artist....and she just touched it and ran her hands over it and then we talked about what "Being Still" might mean and then she got her markers and paper and did five pictures without stopping except to contemplate....I loved watching her and am learning by watching her express her thinking....I love all her colors and her drawing of the scene....she was in the process of making decisions...her own....something you have to do in doing art...making decisions....she has begun to fill in the whole page now after really looking at and touching Mystele's painting! Thanks Mystele!! I hope your Mother's Day was as special! Blessings!!
