This metamorphosis has multi levels. First of all the change between the plain Lazy Susan to the final wedding gift is quite a change in itself. But this is just part of a wedding gift to the son of our dear long time friends who used to be our neighbors. Their kids and our kids played together since birth. We would take out the middle section of the fence between our yards so they could run back and forth. They grew up on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Lego. They played together daily until they moved 5 hours away. That was 13 years ago.
Now they don't see each other much. Once a year in the spring when Craig would come down to the coast for school and stay with us for a few months. Now we have a wedding to attend next weekend. The little curly haired blond boy is an adult and is getting married. I don't know how this has happened because we have not aged at all. I do know one thing. He is quaking in his boots because I know all the stories to tell at the reception.
You can see above what happens when you base coat something and when you see it dry it is full of little hairs from the paint brush. This shouldn't happen and I pay extra for brushes so it doesn't. I used a razor blade to pick them out and started over with more paint and sealer. The vine grows some leaves and then when the sun comes out the fruit starts to form.
We can also call this Metaphor Monday. How life starts from the vine, grows and bears fruit and then dies back only to start over again.
Thanks for coming over and thanks to all of you who helped put my visit total over 2000 this weekend. You are the best. I will be starting something new on Thursday so make sure you check it out.
