Our thermostat is in our foyer, in this little nook for a bench or chest. Fine. But why, oh why did the builders put it smack dab into the middle of the wall??
Throughout the year, I hang a painting right over it, which my sweet friend Linda painted for me. With all the Christmas cheer set out on the antique stereo there, I decided I needed a painting that better reflected that jolly-ness. So, I went up to my messymessymessy studio, blazed a trail to my paint table, throwing things on the floor so I could sit in my chair and work.
And I worked up the little painting above. It sort of looks like our house (only ours is yellow and doesn't have polka dots or a green chimney, but other than that it's exactly like it - haha). And now this hangs over that damn thermostat. Fa la la.
So, here's hoping you're feeling the Christmas spirit and getting jolly at your house, too.
