I Just Love Surprises!

I've been so busy that I haven't posted in a while. Life sometimes interferes with what I want to do!

I received this in the mail today! A lady in a group I belong to told me she was sending me something, but I had no idea what and it turned out to be this beautiful plate, soaps, tiny pitcher and toothpick holder that she hand painted herself! What a feeling to know that someone has so much love in their heart and is so generous and kind to think of me. I am loved!! Thank you, sweet, generous, kind lady!! My heart is full today.

Roses Are Developing......yeah!!!!

I been practicin', chicks!! Whew, has it been hard. I've received so much help and encouragement from my group members that I'm humbled by it. They have truly inspired me to go on with my humble roses. I'm calling my very own technique "ohsobad" figure it out. Hah! But just thought I'd share my progress the last 2 days. I'm going to be a rose painter some day, I promise myself that. Just pursuing my dream. Then everyone can drool all over my roses!!

I thought today I'd treat you to a slideshow of my little birdhouses. They are really the things I love to make the most. Each one is different and takes a lot of labor. But in the end I love the way they turn out. So enjoy...........

Just Toooooo Funny!!!

Several months ago I came across this on a blog and laughed til I cried. I have never watched Ellen Degeneres or even seen her act or for that matter am not sure what she is famous for since we don't have a TV but this is just hilarious. I don't want to ever lose it and I thought I'd share it with those of you who visit my blog. Just turn up your speakers, listen and have a good belly laugh with this lady, Gladys Hardy. I guess it is because I'm in a witty, funny and humorous family that I love this so much. Enjoy, chickadees!

Step by Step......I Fell in Love with You!!!

I remember that song from the 60s!! And it is my theme song to doing my painting roses practice! Step by step..........whew, long process. However, this is my favorite roses - so far - with a little "filler" and leaves (?) thrown in. Actually, I didn't want to "mar the beauty" of the original so I copied them on my copier to practice on more. :-) I'm starting to like this practicing roses and leaves and stuff. Hah.......
