A bit of a break

One last post before I go on my merry way to visit my lovely mum in the U.K.  A much overdue visit I must admit but at least I will make it home before the year is out and before Christmas.  Naturally, I have nothing ready!  No packing even thought about let alone started, still need to get some gifts, do my laundry, feed the cat, milk the goats (oh, I don’t have any!), and all in the next 24 hours!  A challenge, I know, but it will all get done.

I have been so fortunate in the last month or so to have worked with some wonderful new clients.  They have all been so welcoming and generous – it makes such a difference to my job.  I have frescoed a two story home for Karen and Alex (let me tell ya, that 28 foot ladder was rather daunting!), faux marbled a kitchen for Gordon and Ann, faux plastered a powder room for Michelle and faux gold leafed a hallway for Gloria.  A lot of strenuous work for these ol’ bones but so worthwhile.  I love leaving a clients house with a smile on my face knowing that they loved what I did.  It’s amazing what a bit of paint can do!  Below are a few pics of the finishes but as usual the quality is pretty bad.  If anyone has tips of how to take a good photo of a paint finish – please let me know!

I will be away for two very short weeks (which is definitely not long enough) and will not be able to comment on any of your blogs but will catch up on all the happenings on my return in December.  Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, stay safe and keep warm!

la post 2For You


  1. Hello Anji,
    what a beautiful job!! Have a wonderful time and a safe trip.Thanks for the gorgeous flower!

  2. Hi sweet Anji, you work is so gorgeous!!!!!! It is so hard to get a great shot of faux finishes...if they're that beautiful in the photos I know they must be breathtaking in person. I hope you have a great time visiting your Mum sweet friend and thank you again for my parcel a few weeks back, you are so kind!!!! hugs and love, Dawn

  3. Anji, Have a wonderful trip! As always beautiful artwork!!

  4. Those photos look really nice. I especially like the 2nd to last picture. That room looks pretty amazing.

  5. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.

  6. Hi, Really great effort. Everyone must read this article. Thanks for sharing.
