Received a lovely email from Nicole this week –
Don’t know if you remember me and my table from over a year ago…but I thought I’d share another project that I did with Caromal Colours! I always appreciate the many pictures and posts on your blog from enless projects. They inspire me! So, like before, feel free to use my photo’s/blog. I wasn’t very good at getting photos of the process, so these are as good as it gets. Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!

Thank you, Nicole, for sharing – it turned out fabulous!!!

My sister is visiting from China this week… she’s been living there for almost seven years… Her and her hub work for GM – they’ve become so valuable there that the company keeps re-assigning them.
She doesn’t come home but a couple times a year – this visit was a last minute surprise, perfect timing to see family/friends over the holidays. Yesterday, she and her best friend Tamara Joseph, an Interior Designer for Gorman’s Furniture at Lakeside, dropped by the store to say hello.
My sis brought me a special Christmas present, a Beckoning Cat (his arm waves back and forth, palm up). Such cats are believed to promote prosperity, their beckoning paws inviting passers-by to come in and do business
How cool is that? Lucky we weren’t sloshing paint, my sis’s pretty cream fur sweater would have been toast 🙂
Thanks for the surprise visit!
My faux friend Suz turned me on to this brush cleaner –
Like a big shoe polish disc – at first it didn’t seem practical but I tried it and was sold –
This one container lasted several YEARS – I left the top off, and simply smashed my dirty brush heads against the top to soap up, then rinsed them off. Cleaned the brushes great, with no extra soapy residue to rinse out.
Two thumbs up!
(add on) I forgot to mention where I got it! I found it at Michael’s, in the artist paint section. I know they still have them because recently I purchased a new one for the store.
