This dresser is painted with chalk paint from Anne Sloan. I just adore this in all it's perfect blue, distressed, perfectness. This project was from http://missmustardseed.blogspot.com. I drool over the stuff on this blog on almost a daily basis. I have inherited an antique secretary from my mother in law, that needs some love. I have been surfing the web looking for ideas, and this may be it! I finally have some time & energy to work on some projects around the house. I will post pictures...stay tuned!!!!!

The older I get, the more obvious it is, how different folks can interpret any one situation. I remind myself of this and try to be more understanding and accepting of those involved. There is only so much one can do, when having done something unselfish, for a good cause is misinterpreted and taken advantage of. It was not about my ego, it was about helping and making a difference. The sad thing about this is that I will think twice about helping again. Most likely I will help, but I will definitely be more aware of the egos around me.
As for the lesson I have learned from this situation. I will distance myself from those that make me sad and angry, and continue to look for companions that inspire me. I have come a long way. There was a day when I would have fed off the negativity, like a piranha. Now, it is like water off a ducks back. You live and you learn!
