It won't be long now and we will be getting ready to decorate for Fall. Everyone knows that is my favorite time of year, and most of all my favorite season to paint. I just love the warm color palette of browns, golds, and deep oranges. I can't wait for the sweatshirts, crunching leaves, and the glorious crisp mornings!

The items that I have to show you today are all patterns done by Martha Smalley. They can be purchased in her Etsy shop or on the Painting With Friends website!

If you love chickens, then this would make a great addition to your collection for Fall!
Anyone up for Pumpkin Pancakes?

 I did a texture technique of beiges and whites to give the background some depth. Martha used a beautiful stencil on hers, but since I didn't have one handy I improvised......:) I just love the sheep's blanket!

I so hope you are enjoying these last days of summer!
Till Next Time.......God Bless!

After such a long time of not blogging, I am delighted to return. Life happens and found I  needed to step away for a time, and get priorities in order. I am hoping in the next few days to catch up with you all and visit your wonderful blogs.......I have missed so much!

Although it is the end of July it has been time to start painting for Fall. As always so many things to paint and so little time to do it all. But I wanted to share a couple rusty tin pumpkins that I have completed to get the season started. This one is a Renee Mullins design.

This sweet scarecrow couldn't scare anyone least of all the crow on his pants! I love working with Marie Provost designs.....they are always so very sweet!

I have some work to finish on these little mini canvases but wanted to share. I make them into ornaments for theme trees, or they can be used for basket ties, or added to cabinet doors for the season. I still need to add the eye hooks and hangers and add them to my Etsy shop. 

I hope you have enjoyed my new items.......and it is great to be back painting on a regular basis. I will have many more things to show you so I hope you are a frequent visitor!
Till Next Time.........God Bless!

It has been so long since I have been able to get back to my blog....I have missed it! I wish that I could say that I have defined my goals for the year but I honestly can't say I did which is very different for me. I made the decision to let each day unfold into what it is meant to be...... and to paint what I love.
I have wanted to paint this design from the moment I saw it. That is the one thing I love about January.....things slow down and I have the time to paint those "someday" designs that the busier part of the year never allow for. This is another sweet design from Terrye French and is one of my favorites.
In my travels to find unique items to paint on I came across 4 antique sewing drawers last summer. They are so unique to use throughout the home. I have one that I use in my bath to hold rolled up washcloths, but I have seen them decorated with rag balls, bowl fillers, used to hold office supplies....the ideas are endless. This sweet design is by Marie her designs!
Blessings To All...
