Is it spring yet?

While it definitely doesn't look like spring outside, inside I've been decorating with all my spring decorations and it really makes everything brighter! Most are from estate sales and antique stores.
The little chick in the basket is an Easter basket gift from when I was little. He used to wind up and walk.

This is the armoire in Sabrina's room, the hat on the top is from the thrift store. Hope these pix give you a little shot of spring! Bye for now!

Spring has arrived!

Just realized that I forgot to post about my latest creation for Etsy! I'm really not on top of things lately. Just too much to try and remember lately. But, even though it is grey and white and cold outside, that doesn't mean spring can't come to my Etsy shop. This little fairy is named "Spring Romance". She is done in cream and pink and has a touch of pearls and a rhinestone at her feet. Hope she makes you feel springy! Bye for now!

Sabrina's art gallery

Tonight I want to show off a new and exciting talent, my Sabrina! She is very prolific, in fact, she makes more art than me by far! But the drawing above is my new favorite. Check out the flowers and rainbow. We all have spring fever around here something terrible!
This is the Valentine card she made me, it even has a gift card! Hopefully I can use that to get lots of hugs and kisses! Bye for now!

Happy Valentine's Day

I had to do one last Valentine piece to celebrate love, called "Tresor"(which means treasure). This one I'm going to keep in think. I never keep anything for myself. It's actually the first time I have used two fairies together, if I remember right. Will try to do that more in the future.
Today has been a very special day so far. Not only did a I get a wonderful card and gift from my hubby (he picks out the best cards that always seem to fit us perfectly). I also got a wonderful birthday package from Jenny! No, today's not my birthday, but I like getting a birtday gift any old time! Esp. if it's from Jenny! Look how pretty the wrapping!
This is what she gave me, cupcake nutcups, rose shaped soap, a honeycomb birthday decoration, and last but not least, a beautiful cake art sign!!!
Here is the sign on my kitchen wall, behind a valentine decorated feather tree. Doesn't it look perfect there!! Jenny and Aaron, you are the best!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

The wonderful thing about tiggers!

The wonderful thing about Tiggers, is Tiggers are wonderful things! Does anyone remember that song from an old winnie the pooh movie? It has stuck in my mind because I had an albumn of disney songs that I listened to over and over when I was a kid. Anyway, this is my Tigger, being wonderfully lazy! There's nothing like a sleeping kitty! He was sitting next to me on the sofa today as I was working on my laptop. Yesterday he was on the loveseat next to me in a similar position. I made a noise that woke him and this is what I saw:
Too cute! Love him! Bye for now!

Valetine's Day on Etsy

Sunday night is here, and time to contemplate the weekend. Finally had a weekend with a little fun in it. Grandma watched Sabrina, so Rob and I got a chance to go out yesterday. Just lunch at Panera and browsing at Barnes and Noble, but that is one of our favorite things to do. Sometimes, like yesterday, I will buy a couple of magazines. And other time, I just look and soak up the atmosphere. But we alway seem to leave inspired and eager to create. These Valentine fairies were actually made last week and I have them on Etsy right now. The first one is "love", and she has a bit of a jeweled pin her hand.
The second one is "chocolat" and I gave here a pet bird. They are both done in pink, cream and brown. I've really enjoyed working on these valentine fairies, but I have to admit, I'm itching to start on spring! I'm itching for spring period!! Unfortunately, it is supposed to snow tomorrow! So much for thoughts of spring! Bye for now!

Sketches of the Week

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
