Wednesday post: Mary Cassatt

Mary Cassatt (1844-1912) was an American Impressionist painter and print maker.  She is well known for depicting ordinary family life.  Her favorite theme was the special relationship between mother and child.  It allows the viewer to have a glimpse into an intimate part of the subject's private world.  It can be a great starting point for the introduction of one's children to Fine Arts.  They can easily relate to the subject matter and one could readily begin an interesting conversation about the difference in the life of children today and in the 19th Century.

refurnish your sink

When we moved into our new house, I loved our custom sink .  What I didn't love was that it was 20 years old , all scracht up and almost impossible to replace. The easiest solution was to have it refurbished.   This has to be done by professional.  A porceleine sink  will first be sanded , then painted, holes,scratches will be putted.  The last step is to seal the sink.  The area has to be protected and well aired. The result is stunning.     Before:

This process avoids complication one can encountered to changed a custom sink. It is well worth it.

Things I learnt in July

1-Mail please? At the creation of Huntsville in Alabama, habitants used to have to read the newspaper to learn if they had mail.  The post-office was founded much latter.

2-Missed opportunities: it is so sad to think that sometimes we miss opportunities to express our gratitude, love before it is too late.

3- How productive are you and does it matter in front of God? on going conversation...
