Taking a little break
I've had to take a little break from the barns and houses, getting quite sick of them. I was also getting quite sick of the colors of the walls in our house so I have been painting, cleaning, and moving furniture around for the past three days. I haven't been outside or slept very much, but the house looks great. I took all the curtains and shades off the windows and the light is pouring in and I painted the downstairs all a charcoal gray, which makes the pottery I have look even better. I took three boxes of junk to the thrift store and organized all my cabinets. I can't believe how out of hand this house got while I have been working on this group of barns and testing glazes. That's almost all I did this summer and have done nothing to the house. Next I'm moving to the upstairs, it's even worse, because I just kept moving things up there to be out of sight until I figured out what to do with it all. And then..... the outside trim has to be painted. It just never ends, but it's like we have a new house now!
