I'm a terrible photographer, I forgot to take pictures while we were camping, except for this messy one. But you get the idea.... It was a lovely mountain spot, hotter than one wants to be while camping, but still fun.
I took some inside shots after we got back, these'll be the last I subject you to!
Below is the French piece that was my color inspiration for the whole project.
My friend Val just made me some pillows for the trailer for my birthday, aren't they gorgeous? The canvas fabric is made from the original hammocks that were used for she and her brother to sleep on when they were little. One was over the main bed and one over the table and they slid in and out. The fabric has aged wonderfully into a creamy yellow.
I needed to do something with the inside of the door, the wood had some water staining and I really didn't like the color. I was going to re-stain it and maybe stencil the same pattern from the pillows onto it somewhere, maybe in a bottom corner.
However Mario felt strongly that he would rather NOT have it stenciled, and we liked it so much better after it was just re-stained that I gave up that fight.
I did do some painting on the reclaimed wood step he'd made though, so that satisfied the urge to paint somewhat.
I also finished a couple of necklaces that I'd started a while back.
This one has a favorite picture of my Claymore, it's somehow comforting to wear him around my neck. I had done something to the picture in Photoshop called posterizing, and I loved how it came out.
