DISTRESSED DONNA DOWN HOME
WELCOME TO DISTRESSED DONNA DOWN HOME
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
I am starting my first blog. I have been wanting to do this for the longest time, but kept putting it off and my computer was ancient. Thanks to my brilliant nephew who built me exactly what I wanted in a computer system, I am up and running. My name is Donna Wilkes. I am in my late fifties and have been married for thirty-one years - all to the same man! I have two cats -Molly and Azalee - and two dogs - Willie and Scout. I am a retired school teacher who has always loved repurposing old things. I am a self-proclaimed rust goddess. My motto is "If it has rust, it is a must!" In the pictures, you will see a glimpse of my garden which is wild, untameable, and of course, contains lots of rusty objects. In the second picture is a small corner of the den - I collect folk art, outsider art, and primitives. In the third picture is my official stash of art and refinishing supplies. I say official because it actually spills out over different corners of the room. (Let's be honest - the whole house!) I have never met a piece of fabric or cloth I did not like. I have been described as eccentric and eclectic which I take as a compliment. Until I started reading blog after blog, I did not know that such people who reveled in junk existed outside my small circle of friends and acquaintances. I hope over the course of this blog to share my projects and ideas with whomever wishes to follow.
Ah, yes, the last picture is moi - distressed - I believe with uploading decent pictures of a distressed table.
