Pinterest Challenge!

August 1, 2011

My post disappeard?!?!?? Here is what I could find…I was trying to edit and add in my “inspirations” guess I should have left well enough alone? Maybe I should name this one “Pinterest Pears” bahaha.   Or not, that may only be funny to me…anyways, John & Sherry on Young House Love  issued a “pinterest challenge” last Tuesday to encourage all of us who have been pinning away ideas to actually sit down and create one of our pins.   So I have been painting furiously for the last several days, in between making just about every tomato base product you can think of storing away the massive amount of tomatoes my garden produced, changing diapers and a zillion other things I will not bore you with including cleaning up dog poo twice because I was so absorbed in painting I forgot to let Piper out and he is too snooty to warn you! I decided (obviously) to paint the pears I have been dreaming of forever!  After purchasing a few from the grocery store and staging/shooting them until I got one I liked, I then referenced my “inspirations” and wah la, this is my version!!!  It’s not quite finished since it didn’t have time to dry before glazing but I LOVE it!!!  Thank you John and Sherry for hosting this and the motivation *bear hug*
