New painting and gift for a special little Lady

Our neighbor's little girl, well she's not so little anymore, is having a baby in 5 week. I decided I wanted to give her something special since she is so special to me. She grow up with my BB and was his best friend. As a matter of fact, I think she was the only child I met that was a tad meaner then him, she was appropriately named the Boss, and her DH says she's still the older sister (2 yrs older) and she lived at my house most of the time until they reach those teen years where kids go there own ways she went to Brookhaven school and BB went to Loyd Star...they remained friends but didn't run around together different schools different crowds. But any how that's live. They are still friends she just loves BB wife, they went to Co-Lin together. Christy is the little dark hair girl on the left.

Anyhow I found an old baby bottle sterilizer and since she was having a little girl...yes they told her it was a girl, room painted pink, green and brown, clothes bought, everything pretty an pink, sterilizer base coated pink......wrong, they did a 3-D sonogram and it's a boy, she even got to see the water dash to repaint everything. Including the sterilizer, I am fixing it as a little storage container to hold the baby's bath accessories which I am filling it up with.

I had to respray the pot, I forgot to take a before picture. Was trying to get it finished before the rain started Sat. I spray paint out side and the damp air is not good on it's drying right. I painted the inside brown, since her colors are NOW blue, green, and brown.

I painted the handles & knob on the top brown I also painted polka dots on it and then painted a Ladybug pattern called Hush Baby.
I painted the little angel in green and white, so I think I got all of her colors in it. The only thing I like is spraying it with clear sealer, but I have to wait till I can get outside to spray it. I hope she likes it. I think it is a perfect place to store bath stuff to keep it close by and still look good.
Ok, What do you think,. Thanks for coming by to check it out. All comments are appricated, I love to hear what you think.

Need a little help from my friends

Good Morning America, hey it's TAX Day.....didn't take me long to figure mine, simply put down how much I earned, how much I'd already had deduced from SS, wrote a check for what I had left and sent it in...simple right.....OK, got that off my chest now to other matters,
I found the cutest coaster set, Monday and can't decide what to paint on it. Should I paint it for the kitchen or the living room. Here are the pictures. I like the pattern on the top and think it would look good with a prim design, but also think they would look good painted red and roosters added on
Of course, the natural wood has got to go...what is your suggestion.

Glass block...chickens VS Snowmen...who's gonna win....

I finally took a little time last night and finished my glass block light, I have been so tied up with these Dr visits and Dentist along with a dry socket...oh man does that hurt. You don't want to do anything but stay in La-La-land. Got my second tooth pulled yesterday and I guess it decided I'd had enough problems, so it just gave up the ghost and slipped out with no I have still got to get the string of lights to go in it..but I wanted do paint this where you can use it in the kitchen all year but in the winter just turn it around and wa-la a different look....

I'm still around...

I just wanted to drop by and say, sorry I haven't posted anything new, I am still not up to snuff from this tooth, it still hurts and the meds keep me lulled down, not really in the mood to paint., I am so tired of eating jello and soup and ice cream, that I am ready to scream...DH went to our favorite rib shack today and got him a rack of ribs...ohhh, I love ribs..I am so desperate I even thought about putting some in the wouldn't have the same taste. But it don't look like I'll be eating much better for the next couple of weeks...Drat and Easter just a week away...I go back to have another one cut out Thurs....THURSDAY 2 days before Easter oh, how can anyone be that mean, Bad Dr..Bad Dr. ...Bad tooth,'d rather laugh then cry...
But Praise God I finally have an appointment with my Endocrinologist Monday morning at 10:30. This is the Dr that has rescheduled my appointment the last 3 appointment. I told the Nurse when she called that if I'm cancelled and rescheduled 1 more time I'm out of here to another Dr. She wanted me to come in Next Fri. but I told her I had to have a tooth cut out Thurs and didn't know if I would be up to driving 2 hrs and sitting in his office for lord only knows how long, the very next day. So she looked and found this one for Monday. Y'all wish me luck and pray that all is well and he finds out why I am having so much trouble. Will post pictures when I finish my block.
good night all and Good Bless
