Once Upon A Time....

there was this slightly-on-the-plain side 
SHUTTERED ROOM DIVIDER


You may have met it on the street....
or in one of my blog posts....

Either way, you may not have paid it a second glance...
it wasn't what I would call UGLY...
O no...
but very....VERY plain, to say the least..

Standing in a room, no one would ever pay one bit of attention to it...


Bless it's heart...
it WANTED to be
 beautiful...
striking...
stunning...
breathtaking...

But, it knew in it's heart of hearts that it would take 
a kiss from a Prince...or even a Princess
to transform it into a DROP-DEAD-GORGEOUS DAME !


And then, one day, out of the clear blue,
PRINCESS JOANNA
from the Castle of MAGNOLIA
came riding up on a white horse, all the way from WACO, TEXAS,
carrying a KISS by the name of  TEXAS SUMMER.....
Everyone knew in an instant that this KISS ( some might call it paint)
was the PERFECT makeup for Miss Plain Jane...
*so exciting.....

Once the transformation was to take place..
the Princess touched the OH SO PLAIN room divider


with her Magic Wand, Magnolia,
and right before our very eyes....




a BEAUTY appeared before us...


O YES...
she was going to turn heads now...

 She wanted to sing and shout and run about...





 ♫ ♫ ...walking in the sunshine....
sing a little sunshine song..♪♫ ♫

Everyone is very very happy at THE SUMMER HOUSE...

and while DEEDS and I were in the pool this afternoon,
we saw, for the first time for both of us,
A RAINBOW IN THE CLOUDS...

It was so beautiful and didn't last very long.
