Howroo, everypup, kitty, birdy & your "peeps",
We know we promised our SMS pals some pictures of the house now that the floors are done, but mama's still working on the finishing touches, painting baseboards & trim, cleaning & sealing floors, etc, and they haven't moved any of the furniture back yet (our refrigerator is still plugged in the living room, for dog's sake!) So we decided since we can't show you pics of the house yet, that we would post these teaser pics. Mama came across some really cool husky prints on ebay a while back, and daddy told her she could buy them as long as she got them framed and hung, not just stuck in a closet somewhere for "someday". After they got our bedroom all put back together, she figured out that she had to move some pictures around because they just didn't work where they were anymore, and it left the wall above our bed with a huge blank space, so as soon as they were delivered she took them all to Michaels Crafts, and got really lucky, they were having a huge frame sale, 60% off custom frames, and 50% of stock frames, so she got them all framed to match. Somehow the guy that was helping her with her order got confused and ordered one too many custom frames. She had a beautiful picture of an angel that a friend had drawn for her & daddy as a housewarming gift, so she talked the nice people at Michaels into exchanging the extra unneeded frame, for one that would fit the angel. So without further ado, here are the teasers, sorry SMS'ers, mom says y'all will just have to wait until she can get everything clean again, and all the furniture put back, then we'll do a post so you can see the new floors and how our den looks, she's been working all day and into the night to try and get stuff done so we can get back to normal.
Here is a picture of the wall above our bed, where she did a grouping from the husky prints, our bed isn't usually so stark, but they were washing all our lovely sand out of the bedding:
Here are some close ups, the first one is titled The Big Chill, by an artist in England named Vic Bearcroft, daddy was having a hard time getting good pics because of the glare from the overhead light, or from the camera flash, so the pics look kind of dark:
This next one is called Chasing the Dream, also by Vic, sorry for the glare off the flash, it's a really dark picture and that was the only way dad could capture the details:
This next one is also by Vic, it's called The Usual Suspects and it is mama's favorite; look everybody, doesn't it look like us?
The next one is by a lady named Paula Zan, this one is titled "The Joy of Song". We got 6 prints by this artist, but daddy didn't take pictures of all of them. But in the first picture showing the group, they are from the top and left to right, Anticipation, Couch Dreams, So Relaxed, Happy Face, & The Joy of Song.
These next two just didn't fit into the grouping, so they are hanging on the wall where daddy's dresser is. This first one is also by Vic Bearcroft, it is titled "White Husky", mama thought it looked an awful lot like me, except for the blue eyes!
Finally, last but definitely not least, the wife of the guy that always worked on mom & dad's motorcycles, when they used to ride, is a fantastic artist named Barbara McDonald. One year she gave different angels to a lot of their friends, and it just happened to coincide with mom & dad's housewarming, so here is a picture of the beautiful angel she drew just for them. I don't know if you can see all the details, but she's wearing a very intricate lace apron, up close the detail that went into this drawing would amaze you. When you enter our hallway back to our bedrooms, this picture is hanging at the other end, so you can see it all the way down the hall. Isn't she beautiful?
Well, that's the end of our teaser pics, hopefully mom will get done with the finishing touches on the den so we can post pictures soon, we hope these will hold you over til then. We're closing with a picture daddy took of Cracker last weekend, cause we think it's so funny! This is our picture of Cracker gurning. If you don't know what a gurn is, do a google search, we thought mama had the best gurn in the house until we saw Cracker's, he's giving mom a run for her money!
Hope everybuddy enjoyed the pics, until next time;
