And we keep on keeping on, changes are a coming, and they are looking good.  Our RV is a great cozy nest, I find I don’t want to leave the extra comfy bed or the awesome couch that wraps its arms around me and won’t let go!!

 

 

Last we left off, I was teasing you all with some delicious fabrics we found to work with. This is the items we bought for the bedroom.

Aren’t they fun?  I fell in love in love with them.   So this is what we did with the material…

 

 

 

 

This is what we did with the solid gray fabric.

BEFORE-the UGLY headboard

took the fabric off the upper decor and painted it with chalk board paint so I can change the words. Now it reads “a couple of happy campers”.

we wrapped the headboard in the gray suede-like fabric and added diamond buttons for aesthetics. I love them.

Since I wanted to keep gray as my accent color in the bedroom, we wrapped the valance on the 2 bedroom windows with a solid gray and used the print for something different.  Now they are fresh and clean, no more “other people’s fabric”!  The shade color will just have to do, not going through the expense of changing them out.  They go with the brown ceiling.

New bedroom ceiling.

 

Yes, Randy even recovered the bedroom ceiling to match the new ceiling in the living room.

 

 

So that’s it for today folks, hope you enjoy!  Next blog I’ll show you what we’ve been doing in the living room with the brown (fake) leather.

IMG_0014Today, I’m sharing 3 different versions of the same poem.  Two of these poems were recorded in studios; one with my beloved Upthegrove Reynolds Project that I performed with in the Ann Arbor/Detroit areas (more on that in another post), the second of which was a CD I recorded with the help of music producer Michial White Jr. (no relation).  What great experiences they both were.

The third is just me, recited the piece without music accompaniment…just me and the instrument I was born with.

 

I hope you enjoy all three versions.  My words run deep and so do my feelings, so be kind, if you don’t mind.

Here is Defiling Heaven

above, the never before heard version with the Upthegrove Reynolds Project, recorded in 2003 in Ann Arbor, MI at the Solid Sound Studio

this is the version produced by Mechiel White Jr. (aka the Groovematist) in Dexter, MI (turn up your sound a little)

just me…enjoy~
