The Chicken Pot Pie with Sherry turned out yummy but I didn`t take a picture due to it going splat, as it hit the plate. Not the prettiest site. It`s meant to be made in 6 small dishes but I didn`t have any so I made it in one big one.
We found a floor! THE floor I never realized was possible to get. One that looks like wood but isn`t. After going to one place that was extravagantly expensive, we thought we`d try good ole Home Depot, and there it was. Something just new out that looks like wood but is vinyl and goes on like laminate, by the piece. Not a bad price at $45 for a pack of 24 strips and it`s guarenteed for 25 years and waterproof to boot. We can do it ourselves which saves large dollars! This one is called Hickory. The floor isn`t as golden in colour as showing in these pictures. Even my old counter looks golden in the last picture for some reason, on my monitor anyway.
Can`t wait to put it down!
I also found the perfect picture for the large frame. It`s a paint by number of all things. I never realized that they were still making them. We popped into a toy store and I thought I`d have a look just in case, and there it was! It will be fun to do and I like the idea of it being a painting, even if it is a cheat. Won`t need the glass in the frame now. I originally didn`t want any more matted ones but I liked this and do have a matt I can paint a colour to match or the same colour as the background of the roses even.
These are two of the frames I painted. They were dark green originally as I`d posted a day or two ago. I did them white, but thought they needed a bit more something. I also did this to the large frame I have with some gold acrylic paint and non stick tape to help keep a fairly straight line...
