Whim n: a capricious or eccentric and often sudden idea or turn of the mind; fancy.
In Monday's post, I alluded to another one of my whims or "sudden ideas."
It began as a normal Saturday morning and coffee time with Ron. But by the time morning had passed (including some time on Pinterest), I had convinced myself that one of these Rufus Porter style wall murals would be the thing to decorate the wall by my staircase.
It kind of went like this...
On Friday, I repinned this mural onto my "I Could Live Here" Pinterest board.
On Saturday morning, I saw that my friend Kim had commented on my pin, told me that she had a video on how to do these murals, and offered to loan it to me! Really?!
And that's all it took.
Now I don't really know if I have the talent to do something on this scale. My limited experience with folk art has been painting on small wooden objects like game boards and stools...most of it back in the 80's.
I have never done anything like these...
Be still my heart.
So I will watch the video...and consider.
But what do I have to lose by trying? If it ends up looking like a kindergarten coloring page, can't I just paint over it? Nothing ventured, nothing gained? Am I crazy? (Debbie thinks so. ~smile~)
And what is it about Saturday mornings with me?
