more toms

I am having fun with Toms! And, I especially love the fact that a child gets a pair every time I buy a pair.

My friend's daughter, Meredith, wore white Toms in her wedding. She asked me to paint on them and here they are. This was a fun project and I'm going to buy myself a pair today. The hard part will be deciding what to paint on them.

If you don't know about Toms, click on the link to find out more. For every pair sold, a pair is given to a child in need. A very cute way to help. And, if you want yours painted, I'll do it!

my "new" house

After an outdoor painting session, Roxanne and I headed into my house for something to drink and I mentioned to her my dissatisfation with my furniture arrangement. I have one of those large, open spaces that I just couldn't get to "feel" right. Well...that's all it took for Roxanne's creative juices to start percolating. The more she looked and talked, the more excited we both got. She came out the next day and spent the entire day gathering and rearranging my things. We didn't buy a thing, just used what I had plus a couple of branches that we went down the road and cut. It was so much fun! Being with Roxanne when she is in creative mode, which is all the time, is like being at Six Flags. It's a thrill. And, I love how my house feels now. I'm enjoying all the things I've collected over the years in a whole new way. Thank you, Roxanne! There is more to show you and I'll post more pictures soon.
