Bella Rosa and Lovely Furniture.

Sam went back to Pre School on Friday for a full day so i had the day to myself to do whatever i pleased. I had one rule, NO HOUSEWORK, not under any cicumstances! I did very well too,I didnt even wash the dishes...oooh how rebellious of me ! But i thought ah to heck with it, i am having some ME time. So i settled down on the lounge with my kitty cats, some chockie (oh ok a whole block) and a good movie. I was all set. OR SO I THOUGHT ! The movie was WILD HOGS (John Travolta, William H Macy, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence), ive been busting to see it so Shane downloaded it for me (sshhh thats our secret). So there i was all psyched up and 10 minutes into it i had to turn it off. Its a bit hard to watch a movie when the peoples lips are moving and 5 years later the words actually come (ok slight exaggeration there). I was totally bummed. I rang Mum, she said she'd be so mad that she'd be, and i quote, "Hurling stuff around the room". I told her i have too much pretty stuff that might break! LOL
So i turned my lemons into lemonade and whipped out the paint brushes and canvas instead. Painting by myself, undisturbed, is also so rare for me.
So heres my BELLA ROSA that i painted on my Day Off :)

My latest piece of Bargain Furniture is a lovely big Hall/Sofa Table that i bought on Ebay for $40. I had (notice i said HAD) every intention of re-selling it in my friends shop, but well, gee, gosh its so darn lurvley! Im afraid to put it anywhere with pretties on it for fear of falling more in love with it.......What's a Girl to do?????

See, isnt it just gorgeous and cant you see it just needs someone to love it.....I think i know someone......hee hee

Big Hugs,
Shann xxoo

Shannon, I loved that you did not even do the dishes on Fri, good for you!! Dishes can always wait.. A day for just you is so much more important.
What a beautiful "Bella Rosa" sign! The table is lovely, looks like a keeper to me. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
Hope that sweet Sam is doing well. Have a lovely day ~Mary~ :-}

Your painting is beautiful!! Hope you get to see your movie soon!

Your roses are so beautiful just go ahead and paint the table. You can keep it or sell it, either way it's a win win situation for you or the lucky buyer.

I'd think like 30 secs, then keep that pretty table. Once your stuff has set upon it, its YOURS!

That Bella Rosa painting is lush & gorgeous. You are one talented girl!!

Darling, that painting is one of your best so far, I love it. Can I have it - he he. Maybe we could work out a swap here - a painting, a lamp, hmmm.
BTW, I know that table isn't going anywhere.
