how sweet it is.....

Today I get to spend the day with a few of my favorite things...

a fresh gallon of paint in my favorite shade...'cloud white'

a brand new paintbrush

and a radio playing my very favorite tunes

I don't have much of a post today...

 because I have a dresser

one gorgeous frenchy armoire

a changing table

 grandma's beautiful old rocking chair

and a side table

waiting for a makeover

oh, and a chandelier I have to remove all the crystals from before I can paint it white, too...

I think I have stumbled on my very favorite client...

of all the clients I have worked with in the last 10 years

a wonderful husband who is having me paint all the furntiure for a very important nursery...

a nursery for his very first little girl

(all photos from here...)

  he wants to fill the room and surprise his wife when she gets home

~ a nursery full of girlie delights ~

I have a feeling the 3 of them are going to have a happy life together.

That is one sweet man.
