I was raised on country sunshine.................

I was raised on country shine
I'm happy with the simple things
A saturday night dance, a picture show
and the joy that the bluebird brings
I love you and it's inviting
To go where life is more exciting,
But I was OK ENOUGH SUZAN - YOU ARE CITY BORN AND BRED.......................

but I can still love all things country right?  I love love love country music - and there isn't many of us
city gals that do - I line danced my way right through the 90's - even learned how to do the Achy Breaky Heart and that was a hard one to learn, believe me - I wore cowboy boots for years - and suede jeans and brought my kiddos to line dancing lessons with me ( with their little cowboy boots - and my son with his bolo tie - too too cute ) And if I wasn't raised on country sunshine - I was definitely raised on country music.

Ok - so this is what has me singing country songs tonight ( Alan Jackson is blaring away in the background -
apparently he's going to buy me Tall Tall Trees and all the water in the Seas - cuz he's a fool fool fool
( for me )

Before and After Hutch makeover - Pure White ( Annie Sloan Chalk Paint )

and here is how the customer delivered it to me

and because that should not be the last photo you see of this here she is again

Annie Sloan chalk paint, pure white, versailles, painted hutch

I still have to paint the interiors of the doors - and the entire piece has to be waxed - but this is how she looks and will look finished!  I know I'm always saying this about a piece of furniture but I really am in love
again with an inanimate object.  I have to admit though the task was a little daunting when it first arrived - it just seemed so gigantic to me - and a little teensy bit intimidating - but baby look at her now!
Paint: ASCP - Pure White and Versailles Green

And on that note....................

I'm crazy 
Crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy........................
For loving you.



As the movers were taking it out - I asked them to wait a minute so I could get a photo of just the bottom, lol

You are reading the blog of a daughter of a lady who once asked firemen to remove their shoes ( boots?)
so they wouldn't get her newly installed carpets dirty, lol - the apple definitely doesn't fall too far from the
tree ladies....................
