Insta Fridady Take One

Today I am linking up with Jeannett over at Life Rearranged for Insta Friday...

Today's blog post is being created in front of a cozy fire while the girls are (supposed to be) napping. I say, "supposed to be" because they so badly wanted to sleep in our bedroom so that they could be close to the our new puppy. Yes, we got a new puppy...soon to be horse!

These first two shots are of my view. I just added that painting above the mantle last night. I had actually intended on getting rid of the painting and using the frame as part of a bigger display in the house, but as I walked by it in my craft room yesterday, it spoke to me.

What did it say?
Well, let me tell you what it said...
It said, hey lady! If you would take a minute to actually look closely, you would see that I really am a pretty painting. If you would just give my frame a face-lift, I would be a beautiful piece of art for your home!

A couple of coordinating colors, and a dry brush later, wallah!
I love it!

On Wednesday, Raegen requested we do an art project, so we painted blocks of scrap lumber and covered the edges with fabric. I had seen this done by an amazing artist that sells her goods at The Strawberry Patch barn sales...and had been wanting to give it a try.

Back to the new puppy.
We currently have a huge rottweiler that weighs more than I do, and I can't tell you how much I love having her! She is the perfect combination of big teddy bear and watch dog. However, she is getting old, and we wanted to get another big dog. Soooooo, we did just that.

Sir Galahad (The Great), is a mix of great dane and mastiff. Around here he goes by Gally, and he is much loved by all of us!

Reese and I decided to take Gally to the park for a little fresh air and play!
Hope you have all enjoyed your week!

Cheers from The Farrier's Daughter!
