Painting painting painting!

Well, I finally finished this project for a dear friend of took me way too long but I have been having painter's block!  It turned out really cute and she loved it and it got me back to my brushes!

This scale is the next thing that I am working on!  I did one some time ago with a fall design from Terrye French and it turned out so cute...I am doing it again!  I have another scale that I purchased on vacation and I am doing that one with a winter or Christmas scene!  I can't wait to start that but I want to do some fall things first.  I have some really awesome stuff so I better get to it!!!

Back to work!

Since I came back from vacation I decided to get into a booth again......I know, I've done that before, but I can't resist.  This booth I am sharing with my sister and it is in a really really awesome antique shop called Bear Ridge in Crocker.  There are always people there and I am hoping I will be very busy!

I also signed up for a craft show!  I did my first one last year at our school and it actually went really well.  Plus it was fun and I love talking to everyone who comes out!  I will be doing that show again this year on November 12th but I signed up to do one in Jefferson City at the fairgrounds on September 10th!  And wow that is coming really really fast!

I got out the sewing maching and got lots of goodies all sewn up so I can stuff and finish in my quiet times and I have been scrubbing up some of my treasures to get to painting!  I have lots to do!  I guess it is a good thing I work well under pressure!

I have a friend, Susie, of Yankee Lane Primitives, who I got these awesome halloween labels from.  I thought some creepy halloween bottles would be a great thing!  I also sewed up some primitive pumpkins that smell sooooo yummy, like pumpkin crunch cake!  I got more bottles to stock up on my room sprays again so if you are needing those just let me know.  I will also be adding the rosehips and refresher oils in the scents of room spray I make real soon.  My plan is to make up some really neat gift items for the holidays.  Be sure to stay tuned here for a sneak preview of what is to come!!!


I was lucky enough this summer to get to go on a vacation to Colorado!  My sister Angie went with me and we met up with two of my friends that I have known online for many years but we had never met in person.

We went up into the mountains....the view was absolutely beautiful!

Joleen, Angie, Me and Tanya!  Tanya's parents were nice enough to take us all around and give us the grand tour!
Tanya, Me and Joleen!

Everything there was just so beautiful.

 We even visited a haunted cemetery.....twice!  Once at midnight and once in the daylight to see where we were!

 It was a great trip and I was so glad to be able to meet up with my friends.  I am really hoping we can do it again soon and even add some more friends!

And of course Angie and I hit as many antique shops as we could from Missouri to Colorado!  We found some really great ones too like this one in Kansas.  I got some real bargains here!

We also came across some interesting things!  We had alot of fun with this toaster tree!hee hee  After we found this we couldn't help but notice every toaster we saw everywhere!  I will say there are alot more toasters for sale in Kansas than I have ever seen in Missouri!

 I found some great things to paint on!  It was awesome to search some new places for things.  So be watching for some of these things to end up on here for the holidays!

Here are some of the things I collect.

And my jewels!  I can't resist vintage just makes my imagination go wild.  I think of who wore it and where they wore it to and who gave it to them.  Then I wonder how I ended up with it....feeling lucky of course! 

Well, that is the end of I better get to work!!!
