About Me

I am so glad you are here. I am a wife a mother, a grand mother. I love to make old things come back to life. I live in a small town in North Alabama. I'm a dental hygienist for the most wonderful dentist. I am a sinner saved by GRACE.I sing in the choir at my church. I was raised in a conservative home that believed it was a sin to be wasteful, so therefore I am VERY frugal

This Country Girl's gonna go Classy

Hello everyone,

Since my last post, I have been dealing with dry wall workers who have been repairing cracks in the sheet rock in my family room. I also have had painters in and out to caulk around windows and crown molding in order to get things ready for painting. 

I have decided to get away from my yard sale, thrift store, red neck decor and go to a little more "Classy Red Neck" version.  A woman that was a patient at my office asked one day if I lived in Decatur.  I told her that I lived in Falkville.  She put her hand over her mouth as if to mask a yawn and sniggered and said, "Oh, Falkville, that's a little red-neck town."  Well, I'm not sure EXACTLY how she meant her statement, but I refused to be outdone by anyone.  So, I chimed in and said, "Well, I live in the ELITE section of Falkville, we have the nicest cars on blocks of anyone in our neighborhood.  We even mow around our cars and even change them out periodically."  The look on the woman's face was PRICELESS.  I am proud to be a hillbilly redneck but I don't want anyone to turn their nose up at me just because I live in a small town.

Well, enough of that.  I need people's opinions.  I want a huge painting on my wall behind my couch, after all the work is completed.  I want something that is going to make me a bit more of a "modern hillbilly".  So, I'm going to show some paintings I've found on some of the art websites and I'd like for everyone to give me their opinion.  Here we go!

If you don't like ANY of them, please say so.  I want something with a lot of RED.  My wall is going to be a khaki, putty color, so I want something to really POP. 
Stay tuned for the before and after pictures that will be coming soon.  Don't forget to give your HONEST opinion.  I need help on picking out a wall painting.
Until later,
Love, luck and laughter,
Paula the Hillbilly
