This last Saturday some tornadoes ripped through the area killing at least 15. Our area was spared as the storms split right before they got here. My heart goes out to all those who are dealing with this tragedy in Missouri and other states.

There was a little break in the weather on Sunday and I managed to get a couple of things primed. I got this birdcage off craigslist for $ is so big...what a deal! I plan on painting it some type of a blue for my outdoor room. I don't want to paint it white, because I don't think it will stand out as well if I do. Normally I think everything looks good white or cream, but there are the odd exceptions.

I also found this mirror that was a really ugly (to me) gold color. This piece will be white, probably with a pink wash on it.

I was in the mood for cupcakes this weekend. What is better than chocolate cupcakes with pink buttercream frosting??? Absolutely nothing!!
