I have been asked about the links I share to the right of my posts.  Why those links?  They are visual holidays, color inspiration, design delights, or just plain make me feel good!  Sometimes the smallest element of a photo or piece of art can spark the idea for a new finish, or application of a well-loved finish.  Do you have a link you think I would like?  Just leave a comment to this post, and I would love to check it out!  And THANKS!

Ceilings, Modellos, and Fun!

Yesterday and today I worked with my new friend, Katy, on a project she is working on.  She, her muralist friend, Heather, and I  glazed two trays and one very large living/dining room ceiling together yesterday.  Three people who had never worked together turned out to be an incredible team!   Today I helped Katy install a 5' X 7' Modello on the glazed dining room ceiling.  I have worked with small, individual Modellos before, but never one this large, and never on a ceiling.  Thanks to Katy I now have lots of words from the wise and a super experience under my belt - and we had a lot of FUN!  I can't wait to put a large Modello on cambric cloth to show my clients how rugs can be created on hard floors, and I hope that someday I'll get the chance to design a ceiling for someone.
