How lame is it that i am actually showing you guys my new sheets...
Ok, so fine... I'm clearly not a terribly interesting person if the most important thing i can show you is my new sheets
Believe me there is enough "interesting" stuff going on in my world that is just too batshit crazy to talk about here - So simple things like new sheets are easier to talk about...
(sorry i said batshit, but it was too perfect a description)
Anyway... i love finding sheets i like that are a really good price
I found these at "Ross" - Queen size - 300 count - for $24.99
I mean, they are a little much, but i think they're cute in the room and what a great price!
I read somewhere recently that when you start going over 300 count sheets you're just paying alot of money for something that is not that much better
I don't know if it's true - but i find that often when sheets get too high of a thread count they are slippery
and i don't like that
Do you remember fresh sheets from when you were a child ?
My memory is that they had a little cottony texture
I don't know what that texture is called, but i love it...
...probably alot like what real linen sheets (which i can't afford) feel like
See that fur throw on the bed
it is a real lampskin, washable, and you can find it in a big bin at Sam's for $30.00
at least you could about a week ago...
i love it, my kids love it and my dogs love them
Ok, so check this out
I finally took "Good Morning Miss Daisy" to the photographer so i could make giclee prints of her
This is part of the process of making sure the prints look just like the original painting
Here is the original painting sitting with the best two proofs
they look alot alike don't they?
but there are very subtle differences...
I have a clear preference for which one i think reflects the painting better than the other
which one do you think it is?
it took my printer 13 proofs to get the color just right
It takes a good bit of work and time and money to get a print looking the way you want it too -
to be just perfect for your buyer
but when it's right, it is so fun to send them off to good homes where people will love them
I have to say this is one of my favorite cows, and i am getting a print of her for myself - the original is sold and on the way to her new home...
I also wanted to tell you that i have started a Facebook page for my blog posts, random observations, pretty stuff, and cute animals and things
I'm not sure the social media etiquette on asking people to follow my Facebook page
But if you'd like too, you can click on the "F" facebook link at the top right hand side of my blog and follow
or click here
I have like one follower at this point
Anyway I think that's pretty much what all the cooler, smarter bloggers are doing - is more facebook stuff -
I will never be really cool because i'm a total neurotic geek
...But i thought it might be a good way to get my paintings and prints "out there"
Thanks guys - you're really such good friends -
I'm desperately trying to catch up on your recent posts...
work is just crazy right now
and so is home...
