The Birthday: Part 1

Ok...so, a while back I told you about my friend Gina's birthday and how I had an exciting surprise planned. Well, it went off without a hitch and here are the results.

Working on The Big Surprise

Before I load 'em in the car. 3 paintings & 3 frames of flower pictures I took. Her birthday was in March...and we still have our Christmas tree up.

After I revealed her gifts, we got to work painting the kitchen, which was, in a way, part of her birthday present. We started out with a shade of "pink" not wanting to go too dark for fear the landlord would have a heart attack. Well, it looked like Pepto Bismol and made us feel like puking.

So, Gina had a stroke of genius. We opted for a much prettier hue. And more appetizing.

And this was the result at 3 am. Beautious, is it not?

Sarah, you do beautiful work! I never knew you were such an artist!

I'm curious where you got those huge picture frames? Art takes pictures and I'd love to do something like that for him for his birthday.

I'm sitting at my kitchen table now looking out my "windows" at the beautiful view of my "flower garden"!!! I love you, Sarah. You rock my face off...

Erin - I got the frames at Target. The Matte wasn't originally black, we spray painted that (Gina's super sweet idea!). But you can get them for under $20.
Pretty good deal, I'd say.

And Gina...YOU rock MY face off! :)so do pseudo flower gardens. I think I'm going to plant one of my own sometime!

Lovely. Just lovely.
