I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
I sure did.
Here is a photo of me and the JTS (hubby), taken by our 9 year old granddaughter Tenley.
She’s a pretty good photographer….considering what she has to work with.
We apparently look better at an angle…
.and the JTS always has to ham it up
Ok, back to the subject of the day….controversy.
I sometimes paint pieces that are a little different….too much something….not enough something….blah, blah, blah.
I love the controversy.
I would rather a project of mine initiate a spirited conversation than none at all.
I would rather it be debated as trashy or classy than just be… “nice”.
I really love how this piece turned out but not everyone liked it.
Some hated it.
That’s ok with me.
It would be a dull world if we all liked the same things.
So I must have done something right!
It drew more than a little controversy on her Facebook page.
She deleted a few comments before I saw them because she didn’t want me to be offended.
The comments I did read were well stated even if the readers didn’t like the makeover.
Some of the Facebook readers were offended by the negative comments and took up for me….aaahhhh.
There were over a hundred comments on the Facebook share.
The statistics were….38 people shared the photo…..90 commented on it….455 likes….
The comments were probably split about 50/50, like or dislike.

The next project……
Hardware Christmas Tree from 2012
This little tree was a hit again this Christmas.
One reader called it trashy…. or was it tacky.
I just laughed.
I have looked back on past projects of mine and viewed a few where I thought “What was I thinking????”.
I like my tree but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
The majority of the readers did like this project.
I know some of you didn’t particularly care for the heavily distressed look of the dresser and you let me know ….in a kind way…..with the comments you left on my original blog post.
I appreciate your feedback, I really do, I thrive on it.
So leave me a comment.
I read everyone of them.
I reply to a lot of the comments …. and I hate that I can’t reply to every one of them.
But I promise to reply to every comment left on this post!!
