Weekend: Paint and beads

I had a very productive weekend! But there was no paint on beads, just paint on walls!

I've been thinking about painting the dining room and upcoming guests were the catalyst for finally doing it. I bought the paint Friday night, took the cat to the vet on Saturday morning, painted for a bit, got a haircut, and returned to painting until late while listening to a week's worth of Stewart and Colbert on the laptop's crappy speakers. Today was Clay Day, then it was back to Lowe's for paint for the kitchen which seemed terribly undone compared to the bold new dining room. Best of all, having a paintbrush in hand and the serendipitous discovery of the half-filled can of the baseboard color finally motivated me to finish the baseboards that have been partially painted for about five years! I posted on the PPCG blog, spread grass seed on the bald patches in the yard, and after all that, managed to squeeze out a few more beads and get them listed. And it's only 2 am!
I'll post photos of the refreshed room once it's back in order and my new picture frames are up on the wall.
But here's a sneak preview to tide you over...

And here's a new pile o' beads...


  1. I really like your circus beads! They are too cool!

  2. Hmmm, I think your bead colors must have inspired the color choices for your rooms. They look kind of the same. I have that sort of watermelon color on one wall in my den. I really like the color pop! Your circus beads are so fun and gorgeous!

  3. This series of circus beads raises my spirits! Color and shape are in harmony. Your imagination is inexhaustible!

  4. Beautiful works, colors and fun blog.
    Happy Day!
