A Burst of Creativity

 I finished up the towels I started the other day.  I added a ruffle with a raw edge.  I washed the towels and the raw edge frayed a little adding to the vintage look.  The second photo is the true color.
 Speaking of color...
My SIL Monika brought me beautiful tulips in this BRIGHT green pot.  I used some acrylic paint in a gray shade to cover the green.
 Painting a small project is so satisfying.
 To bring out the vintage tile embossing, I turned to good old Rub 'n Buff.
 In Silver Leaf.
 Just rub on the high points and buff with a paper towel or cloth.  It really looks like tin now.
Two occasions called for some baking.  Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies for our son Mike's band.  Safe travels to Unwritten Truth, Godspeed and rock on! Orange Marmalade Bars for the girls at our next service night.
Last but not least a pair of pillowcases for a friend.  Whew...  Riding the wave of creativity. Cowabunga!  Take care my friends.
