Ok before I type up this post - I have to tell you this -
I had this piece of hair ( bangs? ) that kept getting in my eyes all day - and I kept blowing it out of the way - finally I tried to clip it all back - but this hair kept falling into my eye - it was just a strand - just one single piece of hair - but it wasn't growing out of the top of my head.
IT WAS GROWING OUT OF THE MIDDLE OF MY FOREHEAD - WTH???????????
It's happening - I'm becoming a witch - just waiting for a wart to sprout out on my nose..............
Here we go -
which wicked witch made a coffee table switch
This table is huge - think dining room table with short legs ...............seating for 8 easily
Perfect spot for a cauldron actually ( but alas it's not mine )
After cleaning it with TPS - this lady took 3 coats of paint
after 3 coats and finito !
a little sanding here
LOVE the " pitting " that was already on the table top
It now looks like the paint has worn off after many many decades of cleaning - updated but keeping the look of an older piece ( which it is NOT by the way - this is clearly a reproduction piece )
Annie Sloan chalk paint - old white - 3 coats
Annie Sloan clear wax
And not only is it hard to get rid of things that I do - it's now getting hard to give things back things that don't even belong to me !!!!!!!!
It's far too big for this place and yet ...................
I want it LOL
Have a good day my pretties -
I've got some serious plucking to do
If I have to become a witch - I want to be her
not the one below ( sorry - most of you won't know this particular witch - but she's the premier of my province AND I don't like her OR her politics - which are so divisive that she has neighbors hating neighbors - family members arguing with family members - communities distancing themselves with communities.
People screaming at people on the streets to PARLE FRANCAIS - people screaming back - THIS IS CANADA - I'LL SPEAK ENGLISH IF I WANT - awful - really just an awful time in this province's history and very very heartbreaking to be a witness to it all. Civic unrest is in the air. People that once switched back and forth from either language now stubbornly refuse to speak the other. It's like a modern day West Side Story - except without the choreography.
I know you have your problems in the States - but really - I'd take yours any day of the week over what's happening here right now. We have an election in a couple of weeks - and though she's trying to make this a secular state ( no religious symbols allowed to be worn by government employees AND hoping employers will ban it in the private sectors too ) I can guarantee you there will be a LOT OF PRAYING going on for the next week or so - one big fat hell of a lot - that she's voted out of power.
She's the head of a Separatist party - hell bent on removing Quebec from Canada.
If people can't speak French it's their problem.
If people can't speak English it's their problem.
If people want to wear a cross - or a scarf - or a kippah it shouldn't be any of the governments
Other then the garb that covers the complete body and face - for safety purposes - I could care less what people wear or believe.
It's a different world now - something a lot of people have a very difficult time with - but until we learn to embrace the new way - we are hell bent to live one miserable existance.
I don't see such a difference in a government that MAKES people wear religious symbols - and a government that MAKES them take it off.
You can't - you simply cannot - leglislate RESPECT - you have to earn it Madame -
Ask Putin .........................
I may or may not be arrested for calling her a witch in English instead of French - so this next sentence is for her
MADAME MAROIS - VOUS ETES UNE SORCIERE (by law - all French words have to be larger than English words - think I'm joking? )
I'm counting on all of you guys bailing me out - if and when I'm arrested for this ( think I'm joking? )
In the meantime - I'm working on a musical - entitled, what else?
QUEBEC - THE MUSICAL..............
I wonder if these guys are still available?
And if I have any Separatists that follow me - and who may be offended by this - well you can simply
SEPARATE from my blog - no referendum required to do so.
Please keep in mind this is not about French People - or English People - this is about a government and the percentage of people who voted them in. The French and English - for the most part - get along incredibly well - there are many many French people in my world whom I love dearly -
Not so much
