The Project – Crimson’s Creative Challenge #61

I have done something completely unorthodox and I hope Crispina forgives me for it. Rather than start with her fabulous image, I started with my own so I could work my way up to hers.  I’m truly hoping it will fly (though, generous soul that she is, I feel I’m safe). I would not have known what to do with it if her image had not been titled “Winter Gardens”. So… this led me to, well, to here.


The Project

I have a project for you.

Oh, you do, do you?

Yes, you remember that abandoned greenhouse you transformed?

Oh yes, I do. It had good bones and I was able to really make it swell.

You made it more than swell.  You turned it into a work of art!

Oh come now…

Seriously. The way you fixed the outside and the inside, oh my!

It did turn out rather grand, now that you mention it. So, where are you going with this? I feel you’re trying to butter me up.

Me? Butter you up? Never. However—

However, nothing. Spit it out.

I found us a great project. I think it has great bones and when we are done with it, it will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before.

Oh, hell. Your enthusiasm is making me nervous.

Come, let’s go check it out!

Have you completely lost your mind?

  1. Oh gosh, what a challenge. It’s just a few square feet larger than that greenhouse. You are funny, Dale. This was a hoot!

  2. Q,

    Haha! I was smiling as you were explaining the madness inside this particular method. All the while thinking to myself that Crispina will love this. It’s such a clever ‘add on’ to the challenge, after all.

    And I have to say, that last structure . . . while it IS most certainly a project (or several) and has none of the finished finery of the preceding one, it’s really super cool. I love the natural patina- if you will- that seeps from it. Talk about character, wow . . it has tons of character . . and I ain’t being snarky (for once) in saying that. It really is super cool.

    You tended to this challenge with great care, and it shows. 🙂

  3. I do believe this challenge has brought out the truly creative heart of you. Love the way you’ve used it, how you’ve led up to it, used it as a reveal. Excellent. I think that is another gold star. 🙂

  4. This is one glorious adventure. Love it. They all look a bit like our -veranda- is what I call it….. mainly rusty but oh so atmospheric and beautiful in it-s gone by style. Sorry for the funny writing, my keyboard suddenly doesn-t want to take the -normal language- I put in. It says on the display I have the Swiss German keyboard but it-s the UK/US English one and I have no idea where all the apostrophs etc are located.

  5. Love your pics, Dale – where were they taken? And wouldn’t that just be a glorious project to get your teeth into, that Winter Gardens? Be lovely to see it shining again. Nicely done, you made me smile

  6. Haha! I do love the out-of-the-box approach, especially for something that has “good bones” and so is worth the effort! 🙂
    And … yeah, if you weren’t just a little outta’ yar mind you’d probably have a lot less of that creative juices flowin’ in yar veins! And you got plenty! 🙂
