I hope that everyone is having a great Wednesday! It is raining and very dreary here, so since I can't be outside I got a chance to paint up a couple new things. This is another set of sitter blocks, based on a design from Susan Burd. She often does designs for Create and Decorate magazine which is one of my all time favorites.
Now this little guy is a Terrye French design, and I have painted it on a little wood iron that my friend Donna's husband made. It has a slit at the top to hold your recipe card right at eye level. Isn't it cute? I have tried my hand at painting animals, and for the sake of everyone it is a good thing that I don't pursue it...:) but I do love to paint the primitive ones.......they are always so darn cute!

I am heading out tomorrow to go do some TS shopping. The Trash to Treasure projects I was hoping to have done are still waiting for me, and here I am going to get more!
I hope everyone had a good Mother's day, and I will be back again soon with more treasures, but before I go I just want to thank all of you who always take the time to visit. Your comments and your visits mean everything, and I so appreciate each and every one. So everyone take care, and I will see you again soon!


  1. I love each and everyone of them! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Jody~Your painting is amazing!
    They look great!
    I know what you mean about buying more treasures when you have gobs waiting for you. It sounds like my studio!
    Have a great night!

  3. Jody,

    Love the blocks and the chicken recipe card holder. They turned out wonderful.


  4. They all look great. You did such a good job painting them. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Oh now Jody, you know I love those blocks!!! Really like the little recipe card holder too! I think I'm going back to Goodwill tomorrow also, more stuff to join what I haven't gotten!!

  6. This recipe card holder is a great idea. I always mess up my recipes because i am a little sloppy when I bake and this is great that it's not on the counter. Glad to have you with us on Artfire!
