Having Some Fall Fun!

While we are suffering through these hot temps here in our area, I have been having the best time painting for my favorite season of all......Fall!!!
I just completed this one and what fun it was to paint. This is a Terrye French design and offers a bit of everything in one painting. 
I found this funnel at a garage sale this summer and decided to paint it up for the Fall season also.
This is a design by Renee Mullins and I have painted the fall leaves all the way around it,then added a grapevine wreath and fall tag to the top.
So many things to little time......:)
In between painting I have been busy trying to keep up with the flower garden this year. This is the first year I have ever dealt with beetles on my roses, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that I won! Boy they are stubborn little buggers!

 I have made a new space behind the garden bench for a climbing rose...can't wait to see that new addition, but beetles first........:)

This is where I start my day. It is quiet, peaceful, and inspiring. 

We are headed into quite the heat wave this week, so this weekend will be filled to the brim with all our outdoor projects, so that next week I can focus on painting, and staying cool. 
I have so many things I want to show stay tuned!
Everyone have a terrific week, be smart if your in this heat wave, take good care of yourselves, and your neighbors.......till next time........God Bless!

  5. Dear blog friends,
    I am trying to put together a bloggers board.
    This board would contain the name of the blog, the first name of the author ( last name, if you allow ) and birthday-- month and day only.
    Once I get this put together, I will email to all participants.
    If you know of others who would like to be listed, please give them my email address so I can add them.
    I just think it would be handy to know when our friends birthdays are so we can send them our best wishes.
    Those of you who have not yet sent me your address, please do. These will not be part of the blog board, but for my own personal address book. I like to send cards now and then.

  6. Awww---blessed fall---it'll be here eventually. Looking so forward to cooler temps. It's even been consistently hot here in MN, which is unusual. Love the painting and your garden looks so charming.
    smiles, Karen
