Help! Look what the painters did to my floor! I have spent all day trying to save it but I admit defeat. You can see more of the carnage on my page. Perhaps you can help with suggestions on improving this sorry state of affairs? My suggestion is a jam and cream donut.
Happy friday DTI lovelies! It's been a loooong week for both Jo and I and thankfully it's almost over. But I do have a busy weekend planned - last minute Christmas shopping, a Christmas party Saturday night, and Sunday my husband and I are volunteering with Friends of Abandoned Pets for their "pet photos with Santa" event at a PetSmart here in Ottawa (Merivale Rd. near Hunt Club for those who might want to stop by). To top it off we're supposed to get a snow storm that day. I think I could use a little distraction. How about some photos of a fabulous home from Paris locations site Mires? Works for me! (What I would do for one of those suspended fireplace...would be SO cool in the media room addition we're planning).
I love photography - my favourite hobby next to decorating - and finding out what our latest sponsor sells got me all worked up. Fabrica Verde carries Diana and Lomo cameras and accessories!! Who they are: "A confederacy of photographers, musicians and designers bound by the secret handshakes of late night revelry. A posse of guys and girls who live in New York, travel the world, and share your passion for Lomography/creative photography, great design, irony, and the somewhat askew. We personally test, employ, and love everything that we sell." These are the coolest cameras ever - and they look like they'd be a blast to play with. I am seriously dying to get my hands on one - would make a perfect Christmas gift. *wink wink nudge nudge* I devoured their website and grabbed photos of some of the cameras they carry and sample photos. LOVE!!
My 150 year old floor is ruined. There is paint spilled everywhere. The job is as dodgy as all get out and I have a massive weekend of cleaning ahead of me. And this is just one room I'm talking about. I have saved the rest of the house! Please forgive me if I post another stalking house. I find this one calming. So lovely. So restful. So beautifully painted ;) Wish me luck. I'm heading back upstairs with a bottle of wine and a paint scraper to rescue what is left of the once beautiful patina on my cedar floors. Link for this lovely house here while it lasts.
