Ugly Duckling Monday

      Happy Monday! It has been quite rainy lately which has slowed down my latest project just a tad. I don't mind the rain a bit, but I need sun if I'm going to paint outside. While I don't have anything completed just yet, I thought I'd show you a simply amazing piece of art work I purchased today.
     You see, it popped into my head this morning that the little lady needed a chalk board in her room. Being my typically impatient self, I pretended the dirty dishes and laundry were invisible, and dashed out in the pouring rain to search for something to use to make one. I found exactly what I needed at my local thrift store. I'm having a hard time deciding if I really want to paint over it though...I mean wouldn't you??

      Just kidding, relax! I mean, I am all about country decor, but this is way, waaaaaaaay past that line! I think there might have been a good reason they were selling this for only $6! No offense if geese are your thing, they just aren't mine so much. At any rate, I'm quite confident these geese will like being a chalk board much better! At six dollars for a huge canvas and wood frame, I simply couldn't beat that at any sale at any craft store! I thought it might be fun to hang it in my house and pretend I was going to leave it there when my hubby got home from work....the facial expression would be priceless! =) I'm not that good of a lier, so I don't think I could pull it off without laughing.
      I also found some pretty frames in my wanderings over the weekend.

     What? Gold and bright purple aren't pretty to you?! They will be very shortly, just wait and see.
     I think the sun is starting to peek out from the clouds so I'm off to play with paint!...and maybe the dishes and laundry eventually....maybe.
