A little more of the blues, of a couple of different varieties. Shares badly needed.

That up there shows most of what I got done today (save the edging and that one corner), which is to say not much, but this is an exceptionally difficult reach. It's going to require scaffolding to finish it off; that's a steep narrow drop in the stairwell, and my balance isn't that good. Honestly, though? I was too tired and sore to do anything more, so I've punted until tomorrow on the remaining silver to be sponged on the walls, much less the darker blue sponge-off coat. [Yes, I have more photos of stuff the guys accomplished, too, but I'm just too damn tired.]

Blues in color; blues in prospects for getting this done. As I said yesterday, we're at a standstill if we can't make some large-ish sales this weekend. We can't ask the guys to come back without knowing we can pay them, so we really, really need shares. The rest is all cut and paste; here are all the links:
  • First, to donate, the PayPal link is here
  • Second, for sales (which we really need to make, and I'll be highlighting some of his high-end stuff on the site this week), the link to Wings's site (preferably with a testimonial, if you have some of his work), because sales are gonna keep this thing rolling. 
  • And finally, the link to our wishlist (which badly needs updating), with an emphasis on the Lowe's gift cards, because those are what will help us pay for all the stuff that will make this place liveable, like a water heater and flooring and so forth. A note here: I really do dislike Home Depot, but they have a terrific tile that would work for pretty much the entire downstairs (except the bathroom) that's less than a third of the price of a lot of what's comparable from Lowe's. It's the kind of thing that we can't rationalize spending so much more on, given the differential, and so I'll be adding Home Depot gift cards to the wishlist, too, much as it pains me. [Okay, so I just checked; you can only buy Home Depot gift cards through their own company site, so they're not going to be on the Amazon wishlist. Think of it as a virtual virtual wishlist.]
As I've also been saying, we need to make some sales, and sales of some of Wings's bigger-ticket items would go a very, very long way toward this phase (the most expensive of the entire process, unfortunately). I finally got the two new pottery pieces up here, and they're incredible; please share the links to it and to Wings's new work. I have more work this evening, and I have to get on it. Many thanks and much love to everyone.
