Musings from Kim K. said...

I've missed you and wondered what was going on at your house. This post "might" tide me over for a few days. HUGS!!!

No matter how my day is going, I can count on getting a laugh from your post. xo

Dharma said...

Oh man. Sending you patience and e-tequila. You crack me up girl.

The feline succumbing to fumes and then discovered to be faking it = best moment of my day so far! The scraping of antique molding is an absolutely gruesome job, and I am so happy you aren't doing it yourself.

Great post and all the usual suspects plus lizard in great form!

Michelle @ Dream Home DIY said...

Hahaha, thanks for the giggle my dear :) Do you think you might be up to sharing that e-tequila Dharma's sending over?

Unknown said...

Hahaha, love it. Thanks for the laugh! You and your helpers will be done before you know it... well, hopefully. ;)

No lizards were harmed in the making of this blog post? That's always a good thing! I love the colors that you are using.
