An inspiration board and my inspiration....

I am working on an inspiration board for Jenni Bowlin's
class over here. I actually bought this frame months ago
at Jenni's antique booth in Hermitage, Tn.

I love the molding on the top of the frame. It is a bit worn and
I am thinking about painting it first. Here is the before shot
and hopefully, I will have an after shot soon. Jenni says that
if you see something that you love at the flea market or antique
store, but aren't sure what you will do with it, buy it anyway.
The inspiration will come later and that is what happened
with this frame!

I am glad to be home from Florida. We enjoyed 3 nights at
my parents condo, in Ormond Beach, Fl. My parents bought
this condo when I was 14, so it seems like a second home. My
parents moved to Florida about 18 years ago and also have a
house over on the riverside.

Macy and my dad, Jim. We ate pasta most every night leading up
to the track meet in Orlando! Macy competed at Disney's Wide
World of Sports for a national AAU meet.

This is Macy and her track mate and friend Courtney, who will be
running track for Indiana University starting in August!! She is
such a talented young lady.

Macy competed in 3 events and only the top 6 finishers get to move
on to the Junior Olympics in Iowa. She qualified for the 100 hurdles
and the long jump! It was stressful to watch! She worked so hard and
in very hot/muggy weather. She is my inspiration!
Two very happy faces after she qualified! We were thankful
for the overcast skies which allowed for a more tolerable day.
We will be off to Iowa soon and can only hope the weather will
be more pleasant there.


  1. Good luck to your daughter! Won't it be fantastic if she made it to the Olympics. Imagine me saying: I know her, I know her!!! Fingers crossed!

  2. Congratulations to Macy! All the best in Iowa too!!

  3. Dear Kana,

    ps...I just love that frame! I can picture it creamy with the dark stain in the grooves...aah!

  5. I love that frame too! Your daughter is stunning!!!

  6. Love the frame - it inspires me to paint it white and then sand some of the paint off and put a mirror in it! Cannot wait to see what you do with it!!
