Rhino Obsession

Take a look at my newest painting!

I recently bought a ceramic rhino while I was in Washington, and since then I've been obsessed. I'm not sure what to do with it yet since I am currently out of wall space. Maybe I'll have to start rotating through some paintings.

Jeff and I spent hours cleaning the house and finishing projects yesterday. It was nice to really buckle down and throw out the clutter that piles up. The empty space on the kitchen wall would not leave me alone so I hung this old thing:

I painted it a couple years ago and just couldn't find the right space for it until now.

Jeff and I have been staying up way too late, and I think that not having a clock in our family room may be contributing to the problem. Since I didn't want to spend money on a new one, I took an old clock that we weren't using and gave it a makeover. I just popped off the plastic covering, gave it a few coats of paint and crackle and there you have it.

Tree Lawn Treasures

I'd have to say, driving around on trash day is one of the most exciting days of the week in Cleveland. Not only are the garbage cans out, but people dump their junk like couches, tables, beds, toys, chairs, you name it, on the tree lawn. But as they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure. I found a desk next door that was ripe for the picking. I cleaned it up, replaced the knobs, and gave it a fresh splash of paint. I love it! Now all I need is a chair to sit at my new desk...
