This week's Fun Monday is hosted by Jan and she wants to know about our favorite walls:
We all have walls of some sort. What I want to hear about and see, if you're going to show off your amazing photo skills, is what is on your walls, what color are your walls, what is special about them, what is your favorite or least favorite, is it inside or outside. You get the idea, let's show and tell about walls.
This is the one and only wall that I ever got artsty-fartsy with. My Mom had just returned from a trip to Hawaii and had 100% Hula on the brain. I decided as a surprise for her to fix up her bathroom with prints she brought back from Hawaii and add some tropical looking things. I sponged the wall, and if I do say so myself, it turned out great. I made a custom towel rod out of a piece of bamboo, hung a fishing net over the window, added bamboo trim around the sink, changed the knobs on the cabinets to silver starfish, etc. My Mom loved it (and still does). It's my favorite wall.
This is my dining room, and the wall itself ain't nuttin special, but I've always loved the picture that's hanging there. I bought it in Texas when I was missing the beaches of Florida, and here it is, 20 years later and I still love it.
A long time ago I decided to frame old family pictures and hang them in our hallway, so I did. This side is my Dad and his family...
these are Sam when he was a baby...
and this is my Mom and her side of the family.
The worst part about having all those pictures up is CLEANING them!!!! Please don't tell me you can see the cobwebs and layers of dust on them...please...
So, I suppose those are my favorite walls, if I had to choose favorites. But really, I love all the walls in my house. They have all seen and heard alot of things, good and bad, happy and sad. They have protected my family through quite a few hurricanes and have stood strong. I think now I need to go do some cleaning and let my old house know how much I love and appreciate her.
Y'all have a good week!
