It's a hot time in the old town.
Today my BIL Dan came over. He is the best!
He helped us do some repairs and paint our family room.
All of the furniture was moved out of the room. 
Things were chaotic.
Then the mailman came and left a treat for me in the mailbox. 
A giant postcard made by my long time friend and blogging sister 
It is just beautiful and made my day so much sweeter.
Thank you Janet. Awesome art as always!!
Now the family room is painted. Curtains are rehung. Furniture is moved back
I have something  pretty to put in my art room.

  1. It's beautiful, Gemma! What a nice mailman you have...mine just brings me a stack of recycling everyday, LOL! I've been a-painting too! All by myself, which is how I prefer it actually...something so meditative about painting walls.♥♥♥

  2. Oh, painting in this heat must be such fun! At least you had help.

    I'm glad you like it. I love making these big postcards. They're just for fun.

  3. what a beauty of a postcard. quite a nice thing to receive in the mail.

    have a lovely day.

  4. A beautiful postcard indeed! Janet, I love your palette and your subjects. Green, glorious green! Sounds like you got lots done yesterday, Gemma! But what a delight it must be to have your room freshened up a bit. I can't wait to do likewise here!

  5. nothing at all like moving furntiture out and painting a room. get yourself a lovely glass, a jug of cold water with lemon and sit and enjoy that ! xo splash some on your face and top of head when the need takes you.
