I love the Treasuries on Etsy! A neat way to show your favorite items. I snagged one for my Team this morning. . .the Old Farmhouse Gathering Team, ofg. This link will only last a couple days, so go take a look at the cool stuff. . . an all Birdie theme. I love looking at the birds!
I am also very happy to be a member of the Aretsy Team. AR as in Arkansas! :)
These folks have some great handcrafted items! You will see if you follow the link!

Memorial Day

Hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day.


Etsy Shoppin and Bloggin

There's a neat Promotion thread for Etsy bloggers on the Etsy forums. We can post our blog link and Etsy shop link, then, feature another poster's Etsy shop on our blog.
Here's the link if you'd like to join in the fun!

Thanks to littlecrabdesigns for this great idea!

I'm featuring Debora's Etsy shop, "BeadinByTheSea."

Some really nice jewelry in her shop!

Here's a couple of my favorite pieces.

Arkansas Artists on Etsy

I belong to a group of wonderful artisans on Etsy that hail from Arkansas. . . the AREtsy Team! Click on the link to see a Treasury of great items that they've created. There's a wide variety of items from jewelry, altered art, pottery, gift tags, and more. Please have a look! This treasury will expire on Wednesday.



Show Me Wednesdays! My bulletin board?

It's Wednesday! Time for a little show n tell! The item this week is my bulletin board. Well, a section of the wall next to my painting desk IS my bulletin board! LoL! Here it is in all it's glory! A bit messy, yes, but I like to have my notes, dates, painting surfaces, patterns, etc close by. So, when I need a q-tip, or a list of items to paint, or a pattern that I'm using. . . it's right there. I am thinking that it could be better organized with some shelves and cubby holes, but that's on a to-do list somewhere on the wall, too.

Everyone's bulletin boards are SO very pretty! Click on the "Show Me Wednesday" banner above to go to Hazelruthes blog and see all the rest.

I am adding this link to a Martha Stewart video. I thought this was a terrific idea for a wall calendar/note board, and I may even try it one of these days!

Happy Mother's Day

Hope everyone has a nice Mother's Day!

Relax and enjoy it! We deserve a break! :)

Even tho' there's always a big "to do" list around here,

I plan to "do my own thing" and get in a

little painting time. No cooking or cleaning!

It can be done tomorrow,

or the next day. . .

or the next day. . .



Show Me Wednesdays! My front door!

Ok, here it is! My front door! It's in dire need of a makeover, so I 'm hoping to get ideas from everyone's door photos! The sign is one that I stenciled years ago from a Julie White book. I usually hang it somewhere on the porch each summer when I get things arranged with plants, etc. I haven't done a thing so far, nary a plant in sight! Maybe this will be the "before" photo, and I'll post another pix later. Any door decor ideas are appreciated!!
Be sure and click on Cathy's "Show Me Wednesdays" banner below to see more front doors!


Show Me Wednesdays!

Cathy over at Hazelruthes is starting, "Show Me Wednesdays!" There will be a new theme or item every Wednesday. This will be fun! Head on over to her blog and see what it's all about! Just click on the banner!

More Handpainted Prims to Peruse

I've added a slideshow of some of my handpainted items. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and please have a look see! Would love it if you'd leave me a comment!
Thanks very much!! Hope you are having a nice Spring Weekend!

A note about my blog music:

Music soothes the soul, when you're in the right mood. ;) If you'd prefer to turn off the music, click the "pause" button on the playlist at the right. I have about 70 songs on my list, so click the forward button, to go to a different song. I hope there's a song or 2 in the mix that you'll enjoy while visiting. Can you tell I love acoustic singer/songwriter type stuff? :) There's a few of my favorite very vintage classics that I hope you'll like too!
