Pink Saturday and Top 3 at SSSS!

Happy Pink Saturday!  Today I am sharing a wooden box that I had painted in my earlier painting days with Pink Saturday.  There is also a very worthy cause happening there "A Miracle Makeover," so please take the time and take a look!  We had placed a doily over the top and then faux painted to give a marble effect.  The side of the box we did veining.  Sometimes I forget how much fun I did have in the painting days! 



I was so excited to be awarded a "Top 3" Blinkie at Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tag for this Steampunk tag, which my G-daughter does love.  A big thank you to SSSS!  Such an honor to be selected when there are over 100 talented artists! 
It has been a busy week with getting ready for the replacement windows, which went in on Thursday.  Still have to decide on doors and now I am thinking about the remaining windows.  Never realized how hard it is to do nothing an entire day.  There was a ton of stuff to do before they came, plants to trim and stuff to move.  You don't realize how much stuff you have in the way!  Yesterday we spent some quality time with friends, which is always a delight.  Hope you all are doing something fabulous this weekend!
