Almost "in the pink!"

Been sick a few days, so I hope to get back to posting, tagging, emailing, and, yes, even painting! I should also be cleaning...as everything goes untouched when I get under the weather. But, I will get to it when I get to it! My fam is in big trouble for the mess!

First things first! I have some major tagging to do! LoL! My OFG pal, Carol, from Days Gone By has tagged me. I will need to come up with 5 things about me. Look for that list on tomorrow's post. LoL! Have I said that I tend to procrastinate?

I've added a set of photos of some of my past work. Hope you'll enjoy looking. I will change them up from time to time.

I have some great vintage items to show y'all; a pair of baby shoes, a nice framed cupid print, and a special present that my hubby bought for me on Ebay!!

The framed photo is really sweet with a little girl and her bow and arrows. I was thinking cupid, but I can't tell if there are any wings at the back.

I love the baby shoes! They look like spats. A couple of buttons are missing, but it's so neat to imagine the little tyke that wore these. There's some very old newspaper stuffed in them to keep their shape, too.

My favorite item is what my hubby bought for me on Ebay! I am a calligrapher, so I love old pens and inkwells and such. He got me an old nib type pen, with a beautiful mother of pearl handle. It came in its own wood box, and the latches are still attached. The lining on the inside is purple fabric. It's sooooo neat! I wish the photo was better, so you could see!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Will post more soon!


Happy Easter !

I found this very vintage bunny 'toon on YouTube.


Almost Easter !

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday!
Just had to post this cute little graphic from "
SigParty" on the Delphi forums.
Lots of talented siggy designers there!

I've also been "tagged" by Kris from PaintedKreations. Uh, thanks again, Kris! LoL!
Here's my list of 5 things about me:

1. As a kid, my dream was to grow up and work for Walt Disney Studios.
I accomplished neither.

2. To compensate, I collect Disney items, especially from "Toy Story," the first

computer animated Disney movie.

3. I am not a morning person, actually, I'm not an evening person either, but that's better than morning.

4. I am so very lucky to have a handpainted ornament on the Library of Congress
Christmas tree.

5. I have been told by my parents, (I don't remember this) that I used to climb in the display case and eat the
cigars in my Grandparents tobacco store.
Not the cheap cigars, mind you, but the most expensive ones.
Oh, I should add, I was just a toddler at the time!

Ok, that's me in a nutshell! Now I will go and tag 5 more people, so look out!!


Spring Has Arrived !

Finally, we've made it to the 1st day of Spring! It was a beautiful day here, sunny and in the 70s.

We will need some more nice warm days like this to start drying things out. The heavy rains on Tuesday and Wednesday have caused massive flooding, the likes of which we haven't seen in many years. Thoughts and prayers are going out to all who have had their homes and property affected by all the high water.

On a lighter note, the photo below is of a "Chocolate" Morning Glory from last summer's vine! I hope to have more of these for this season. They are really pretty!

I have been Tagged!
Thank you, Kris! LoL! Tomorrow I will post more on my 1st ever *tag* I need to figure it all out tho'!


Luck O' the Irish !

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Are you wearin' your green?
I thought my blog should have a little. :)

Speaking of green, I am working on some
"go green" items
to put on Etsy.
Will post some pix here when I'm finished.

Have been having some pc glitches,
so will post more later!
Hope you had a great day!
Thanks to Trina Clark for the Irish Snowman!


Here goes!

Hello all! Welcome to my blog!
I've been wanting to start this for some time now, but just couldn't seem to find the time. My daughter decided that she would set it up, (without telling me first, of course!) so I'd be forced to get busy posting!

I spend most of my spare time painting, so this will mainly be about my artwork, with a few other of my hobbies thrown in for good measure.

Please bear with me while I travel down this rocky road to blogdom!
I hope that you'll find a little bit of something here that's worth the trip!

Thanks for stopping in!
