Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce @ AT Home With Books.

Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.


My coworker designed this pattern, and then bit by bit, over a long period of time, she painted the dining room ceiling in her old Victorian home.  Some people obviously have a lot more creativity and patience than me -- I couldn't imagine taking on a project this huge. (This is only a third of the ceiling, the rest still needs to be done.)

    1. Kay, yes she found a wallpaper border that matched pretty well. I wouldn't be able to move my neck if I attempted even one square:)

    This looks like a fun meme - maybe I will give it a try...
