Pardon the paint splatters at Merchant Ships this week. As you can see, I'm doing a bit of redecorating! Frugal Upstate's improve-your-blog contest gave me the fever (though I'm not participating per se.) I've been meaning to do it forever, but with a limited amount of computer time, I nearly always choose posts over html.
The painting above is one my mother bought for $45 at a local consignment shop--a good buy for original artwork, don't you think? Daffodils are and will always be my favorite flower. My mother planted a thousand bulbs in our childhood home, and yellow was my first word.
