Day 7: Good taste

Day 7: Good taste

31 Days of God-related attitude 
I started packing yesterday. The first order of business was packing what I want to keep so I began packing photos and wall art. Neither of us realized just how much wall art I had until we started taking it down and wrapping it up.

The walls are incredibly bare and we can hear an echo when we talk to each other. Truth is the stuff I took down is beautiful. Some I purchased at Michael’s, Target while others I purchased from around the Bay Area.

One trio of paintings my late husband and I purchased in Calistoga. They were so beautiful we couldn’t say no. Another duo of paintings I found at a girlfriend’s furniture store. It has an island feel and the canvas texture is so beautiful it complements the paintings beautifully.

Lastly, I own a numbered Thomas Kinkade print on canvas, which I purchased from his gallery in downtown Carmel. Not only did he sign the back but he also drew his signature street lamp, which increased the value. Equally cool is his brother Patrick who painted highlights directly onto the canvas. He also signed the back. Now that Thomas is dead the value just skyrocketed. That will be staying in my family for quite some time

I’m so glad I got rid of the cheap and cheesy crap from my days as a single woman. I have great taste because God doesn’t make junk. Woohoo!!!

Others blogging a 31-day series for October:

Boricua Confidential chronicles my new life as a single mom of two kids after my husband died from cancer on our son’s seventh birthday. Join me on this journey of change, revival, reformation, discovery and new direction ordered of God. Being a widow ain’t easy, that’s for sure. I refuse to rollover and die. Quite the contrary. I intend to thrive from this crazy life. You can’t keep this woman down. If I’m down, I won’t be for long.

God created me to bounce back. Watch me.
