Are ya serious???
Where did all these monkeys come from?
Well, for all of you who have been waiting, I now have TWO FULL pages of monkeys on my web site.
Go HERE and when you get to the bottom of the page, you can click on MORE MONKEYS for page #2.
If you don't see them, you may have to refresh the page, but believe me, they are there.
I will extend the 'blogger best deal' to August 1st.......which means if you follow my blog, and mention it, I will credit you back $10 on your purchase.
Here are just a few sweet monkeys in this bunch.
Someone asked about shipping the rug to California.......it actually folds up quite compactly, and ships in a 24x16 x16 box, via UPS. We have yet to finish the whole order, which includes a 12' runner, and a stair runner, with landings. When we get it all packed up, I am guessing it will cost about $60 to get it to where it is going.
The iron??? We use damp cloths to press the seams, and we don't hold it on the rug long enough to burn the rug, or hurt the floor underneath.
There was a lot going on at the studio today.
Big old houses need big old love.
It has wood siding, which I am keeping because it is historically correct.
And once again, it needed painting.
Unfortunately, since they took the lead out of exterior paint, it doesn't last as long.
There's a trade off for everything.
I think sometimes, I should make a list of the things I don't understand, kind of like one of my fave bloggers, Cupcake Murphy
Like 30 or 40 year old women without one single tooth in their head.
That would be high on my list.
Along with the abbreviated longevity of paint.
Painting this house isn't for the faint of heart.
Hopefully, it will last 5 years.
It's part of my mission, I guess...........to not just weave in this house, but to take care of it, too.
Someone has taken care of it, with different levels of intensity, for 230 years.
I guess the torch has been passed.
