A Couple of New Things.......

Happy Friday All! How did it get to be Friday already? It's been a busy week here and I was hoping to get a little more done then I did, but it was kind of nice to just enjoy the days after the hectic time of the holiday season. I did manage to get a couple of new things done though......:)
This is a door crown or shelf sitter that I did from a Terrye French design. It was such a pleasure to paint and would look great in a primitive, or cottage style home. My picture taking is not the best today(really need to work on that) but the words, Heart and Hand have been painted on either side of the crown. Love it!

This cutting board was found for me by a friend of mine, and it has the most wonderful patina. You can tell just by looking at it that it helped prepare many a meal in its time. If you look closely you can see the knife scratches throughout and I felt this lended the perfect touch for this folk art chicken design by Terrye French. Lots of fun to paint! As always all of my creations are for sale in my Etsy shop, so I hope you have a moment to stop by!

Here is wishing you all a great weekend! We are busy with family birthday gatherings so there won't be any painting this weekend, but I have all sorts of wonderful ideas, and can't wait to get started. See you next week..and as always......God Bless

New Year! New Look!

Good Morning Blog Friends!
 I am popping in real quick today to share my first "makeover"for BLOG! Doesn't it look fabulous? Now I can be creative but when it comes to this technical stuff I am at a total loss, so I contacted Amy of Amybugs Primitive Attic and she worked her magic! She is so easy to work with, and she had me up and running in no time. So if you are contemplating a change, be sure to pop over to her website to see some incredible primitive backgrounds. The hardest part for me was just choosing one from all she has to offer. She also does websets, and Ebay templates, and they are all oustanding! Thanks so much Amy!! I am just delighted with the new look!

I will be busy in the studio today working on some new things for my Etsy shop, so I will be back soon to share what I have been working on. In the meantime I hope you all have a wonderful day, and till next time.....God Bless!

Life is like Coffee!

Happy Monday Blogging Friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful start to their New Year! I was sent this incredible video this morning, and I wanted to share it with all of you. I thought is was the perfect way to start my New Year.
I always look forward to this time of year. The hustle and bustle of the holidays behind me, fresh new beginnings, wonderful dreams to achieve, and like everyone still want to lose that extra 20 pounds, but what I found truly exciting is that wasn't what I REALLY wanted this year. I want to do makeovers! You know take what you have, and make it better. This video is a wonderful start.....just click the link and enjoy! Till next time.........God Bless!

Life is like Coffee Movie: "Life is like Coffee. Do you know people that just seem to be happier in general? Do you say to yourself, "I want to be more like them"? Often, the happiest people in the world don’t have the best of everything...they just make the best of everything!"
