(by the way - our Dalmatians & Cruella won First Prize at the Parade!! I'm hoping to get some pics from Troop Moms ... yes - can you believe it? I forgot my stinkin' camera! UGH!!! I don't even want to talk about it - I'm so disgusted with myself!...)
... Okay - back to the unveiling (I'm sitting here rolling my eyes at myself, by the way ...). The next project is one that I am truly excited about, as a home decor shop by the name of Sisters Three & Me (I know ... cute, huh?) contacted me to decoratively paint a bed for them. Too excited for words am I!
I also have the footboard to embellish a smidgen.
So, the request has been to incorporate a quote of Jiminy Cricket's from Pinocchio. I immediately pictured and old piece of parchment, perhaps found by chance in someone's attic, left behind by our magical little cricket-friend as a bit of wisdom to share with generations abroad. I would also like to incorporate a bit of Pinocchio in this piece ... maybe a branch with sparse leaves nestled behind the paper, but poking and peeking through and above this message to represent our dear, yet mischievous, Pinocchio's nose when one too many fibs were told.
Hmmmm ... Let's see how this turns out ... :)
