I tried really hard to not do this post.
When I first learned about
Defining Your Blog,
I was really excited.
And then I hesitated.
How much waxing poetic can a band of
brave readers handle?
And then I changed my mind,
even though I am late.
White Spray Paint
is a place where I can confess
to a collection of silverplate holders that
made my heart race,
There are NO clear glass inserts to be found.
White Spray Paint is about my writing.
White Spray Paint is,
according to my very first post,
over 500 posts ago,
My mother was a great proponent of white spray paint and its multiple uses and problem solving qualities in home decor. This has been an important part of our family's home toolbox for as long as I can remember. She sprayed everything and taught me to do so as well.
White spray paint transformed every piece of old furniture that my father hauled in a cattle trailer, to the first garage apartment my husband and I had. As family members arrived with precious treasures to share -my mother cleaned and sprayed, cleaned and sprayed.
White spray paint covered changing tables,baskets,picture frames,mirrors, lamps and wicker screens in the bedrooms of our three daughters- her precious, kindred spirited granddaughters. She made their bedding, their curtains, their pillows and shams- all highlighted by bright, white furniture we had sprayed and redeemed.
White spray paint traveled in the back of my suburban to every dorm room, apartment, and rent house that our daughters lived in while at Texas A&M ( as well as to all other homes thereafter) .
I know we left random spray marks in alleys and parking lots throughout town. We have always painted with such great abandon.
She taught us that too.
