A threesome . . .

. . . to those of you who clicked to see if my blog has gone trashy, sorry to disappoint.  It is just that I edited a photo three ways and couldn't decide which I liked better.


A couple of layers of  Kim's 'silence' texture.


The same layers in black and white.  Subtle changes.


Kim's 'pink sweet treat' and 'sweet tart'. 

All were tweaked.  I love to tweak!  I'm linking these to Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.

This has been the extent of my computer time this week.  Because we are all interested in when spring arrives in our areas, I am happy to announce that the sun is shining and the wind is not howling and the temps are above 50 in Nebraska!  I hope I'm not jinxing anything by telling you that there is a chance for snowflakes on Friday.  *sigh*

The lovely weather makes me feel ambitious!  I know!  Unusual for me but so true!  I'm on a painting kick and the whole upstairs is being painted.  By me!  Alone!  All by myself!  It is keeping me busy while I fret and worry about little Miss Indecision (the bride) not making any decisions about the wedding so I can start designing and working on anything wedding related.  You see, I am a planner extraordinaire and like to schedule tasks in an OCD kind of way.  But I am trying to be patient, all the while screaming inside.  So when the upstairs rooms are finished and it gets warm enough outside and there are still NO wedding paraphernalia to be started , I'll shlep my paintbrush to the workshop and paint every piece of furniture I own.  Wow!  That was a rant I didn't know was in me!  Blogging can be so cathartic!

Anyway, back to trashy threesomes.  The is nothing dirty going on here!

Now, go enjoy the day!

I didn't do very much of the planning for my son's wedding either...probably why I was able to paint my kitchen cabinets the week before the wedding LOL!

Ohhh gorgeous, love the different edits, my fave is the first one. Yep i know what you mean about the weather too ... i am also ambitious but lacking in the possible space in my life for all i want to do lol.
I just wanted to let you know i have a gorgeous background freebie on my Dezinaworld blog at the moment but it will be gone at the end of the week so please pop by and grab it before its gone. Have a great week.If you get chance to mention it on your blog that would be appreciated too but only if you have the time of course.
hugs June

Love all 3 photos and I'm not sure which is my favourite, although probably the first one - I like the definition of the image and the rust.

Happy painting!

So very nice! I can tell that you worked very hard on this. It has such great detail.
Things from the past are so intriguing. Isn't this fun? Wonderful job! Happy Tues.

great images - the middle one in my favourite, like the subtle black and white.

And I love the font you are using - I'd guess papyrus ?

bikim said...

Deb said...

Chance of snowflakes here too :-(
Love your images & textures & your blog header is gorgeous ♥

Jill said...

I choose the first. Is that a scale? I can't wait for her to decide too so I can follow your projects now!

Shelly said...

Boy, your Gals in the Midwest are really Wild! A Threesome??? LOL

I just left Lynn's Blog and saw the darling flowers you made her! Too Stinkin' Cute!! Love 'em! I'd best get you to make me some paper ones, or at the very least some of my own,,,I think everything here in Washington is going to ROT on the VINE! We've had soooooo much RAIN!

I'm having a little "Spring Dreams" Giveaway, If you wanna stop over before the 15th!

Hugs and Love to you Connie Girl!

I love it!!!! Paint away, I always paint a new color when I feel a change comin'. I love the texture photos, and I like all of them. But the middle one, black and white caught my eye. Anyway go back to the painting and once you get involved, there will be wedding work to get started on.

Be well,
Lisa

Cammie said...

Did you get that scale from Me? It looks like one I had but maybe it went to the idea house? Anyway, I love the scale, Adorable!

Connie, You are refreshingly a real hoot! Great sense of humor! You also sound like the energizer bunny...please send me one of your batteries! Great pic too...I'm partial to the first one only because I love rust and it "shines" the most in the first pic.

I just did a post on some WONDERFUL paint to use on furniture. Will never paint furniture again with any other kind of paint. Happy obsessing about procrastinators...xo, Sue
