Good morning and a french hutch

hi, just a quick note for me as Phil is having some surgery this morning and needs to be at the hospital by 6:30am (way on the other side of Sydney). Just day surgery and I'm sure he'll be fine. Touch wood.

I bought these flowers cheaply at the supermarket. I usually get flowers on Saturdays at our markets but at $6 a huge bunch I could resist these.  Love them in my vintage beer crate. I took them outside for the afternoon yesterday and sat at our BBQ table for a while in the shade to cool down. Moving furniture, sanding and painting is tough on days like these.

My lovely customer who bought the footstool I posted about yesterday sent me this photo. I must have been channeling her when I painted it as it fits in perfectly.  I also painted her bedside tables. Nice seeing it all together in her pretty bedroom.

This is the top of a big hutch I bought this week. The bottom is still in the car but it is so gorgeous. I can't wait to start painting this one.  Big job but I think  will enjoy every last minute of it. Famous last words, ha ha. Things never go to plan.

Anyway I had better get on with things. keep Phil in your thoughts today

thanks for all your lovely emails, comments and support, it really means a lot to me.
