I finished the frames, have hung one in my bedroom, put the oil painting that came with this frame back into it, but am not really fussed with it, it seems a bit bright to me, but it will do until I find something to replace it?? My next job will be our duchess (you can just see the corner of the mirror on the bottom right hand side, feel a bit guilty as it took *My Darlin'* hours & hours of varnishing years ago to transform it from the Mission Brown paint it had on it when we bought it. What was it in the eighties with *Mission Brown*, I think Australia must have had a huge sale on that colour paint!
Love how Taska's bed side cabinet turned out. *She* looks so much better with her white paint & glass knobs, now I just have to make Taska a new quilt for her bed, I had to bribe her (SHE IS INTO BLACK & WHITE) so will make her a quilt in black & white for her bed to keep her happy!
Ok so this is a short & sweet one from me today, heading off to Maitland in the morning, Deff Leppard concert at Newcastle on Thursday, doing the rounds of Vinnies etc Friday in Maitand (so many thrifty shops down there) my best friend Anna is coming back up with us on Saturday to stay for a week (REALLY looking forward to that, heaps of time spent on the front veranda) planning on coming home via the New England Highway, will be my first time, & out west hopefully will have heaps of small towns with thrifty shops, YES will be in HEAVEN!
Put a bet on the Cup today (my one & only time I pl;ace a bet) my horse came in 4th, them the brakes huh, but still really enjoyed the thrill of the race.
Hope yours horses came in for you's
Enjoy your night

The bedside table turned out just beautifully, what a diference a coat of white paint does! We got our new bedroom suite today, so I am going to strip the old varnish off from each of the bedside tables & paint them white to go with the girls new beds that they will be getting at Christmas.
Have fun rummaging through all the thrift shops on your trip.
