Friday Snip-It's ... Shiny Times Ahead!


1.  You know my magazine struggles.  I am purging.  Scary and Good. #cleanslate.
2.  Last year's wrapping theme.  Stripes and Reindeer.
3.  Enormous Gloss Red/Orange Drum Chandelier.  Swoon.
4.  GORGEOUS new carpets from AA. Pictures don't capture the Amazingness!
5.  The Votes Are In.  Pantone Color of 2014. Radiant Orchid. Boom.
6.  Cheetah Ribbon, Copper Angels and Stars ... Christmas Bannister.
7.  SHINY Green Apple.  In case I can't get the Shiny Drum Light.
8.  Byron is sleeping in the "boudoir" chair.  Thinks he's little!
9.  2 Years ago ... I was in to "natural with a Shiny Twist".  I cringe.

Funny state of things here on Farm Road.
Unpacking Boxes to decorate for Christmas.
Packing boxes to move.

Weekend ORC Warrior!


So this is TUESDAY... NOT the official ORC update day.  But the ORC is wrapping up this week with our final Reveal next Wednesday.  Well ... I need the extra time!!

And it was warm enough to bring out the Spray Paint!

Last week, Alice and I trekked up to Essex to do a little antiquing.  We had a ball ... more to come on Friday about our Day.

But for now ... I found this little bamboo table base.  Without a top.  Exactly what I was looking for.

Sneaking a peek at how well it works ... but it is yucky dark brown.


I am thinking a Glossy Black will be much better. 

First time I have EVER spray painted in the Snow!!  But it was close to 50 outside and the sun was shining.  I was in business!!



Check back tomorrow to see how Fab this looks!

And then, there is this ... 


You are witnessing my downfall.  I cannot pass up a good magazine.  Well ... those days are over.  

Yep, this is a December BH issue ... not even out of the plastic yet!


I found some good storage and Will NOT renew any of my subscriptions until these are all read and pages appropriately torn out because there is something I like.  

This is my Promise.  I Promise.

Next I tackled the back of the Beast.  I told you I wanted to kick it up a notch.  I also told you I am NOT over Chevron.  So here it is.  A paper Runner from the Paper Source.  It just didn't have quite enough definition for me. 

Out comes the Navy Blue Sharpie.  Yep.  I am much happier!






I have not finished scraping the paint off yet.  I did get new razor blades.  But the Chevron is UP!


Please come back tomorrow to see how this weekend brought my Illusion Closer to My Reality!
