I sewed my favorite label on. The corner job...just waiting for the pigma pen and words of inspiration. I saw this label style on a blog last summer (sorry...I don't remember who or where.)
And now for the new beginning...I have a new friend in my house. Her name is Val (well at least I think she's a she!) She arrived on Wednesday and hence the reasoning for the Quick Strippies so I could practice on the 'real McCoy'.
I was feeling a little guilty for buying Val but then I took a trip down memory lane and realized I never said, "No" to anything that DH wanted to buy for a hobby.
Please join me for this quick down memory lane!
First is the 1988 Honda GL 1500 Gold Wing. This pony is still in our stable today some 20 years later. Only 5 more years and it will be a classic!
Circa 1995 (or close to it) brought a couple of SeaDoos into the picture. My in-laws had brought a cottage on a lake and we used to visit every weekend. So it was only natural that we had rides on the lake too. The SeaDoos were sold to a family friend that had just brought their cottage (on a different lake) and we moved to Texas in 2003. (uh-oh...can't find a picture...it was pre digital and I can't find the scanned pix)
In 2004, we added two Honda dirt bikes to our stable. These are currently in storage at my in-laws cottage in Michigan for the winter season.
and finally our latest addition as DS turns 17... a 1979 Chevy Corvette...what more could a teenage boy want!
and of course, a picture out my kitchen window about 9:30 am...an Easter snowstorm for us in SE Wisconsin.
EDIT: DS helped me find the SeaDoo pix...lucky for me that he is computer literate!
