Celebrate America!!!!!

Hi Everyone!!! Hope you all are having a great weekend. It's very hot here in So. California. It's in the 90's. Much to early for this hot weather. Well with Easter behind us I started on patriotic items. I have been listing my fire crackers and trees on eBay and Etsy.

 It was great to start on something different. I took down all of my Spring decorations and pulled out all the patriotic things. I'm ready for Memorial Day and the rest of the summer. April was a busy month for us. We celebrated Easter, two birthdays,and our 40th wedding anniversary. A lot of eating!!!! Here are a few pictures of some of the items I have been working on. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. Denise

Spring Is Just Around The Corner!!!!!

Good morning everyone!!! Hopefully it's starting to get warmer for all of you. We finally got the much needed rain here in Southern California. It rained here for four days straight. It was a nice change!!!
With all the rain I was able to stay inside and get some of my Easter trees done. With Valentine's day behind us I dug out my Easter decorations and decorated the house. I need to get started a bit early because I use my decorations for props in my pictures for ebay. I think it gives you some ideas of different ways to decorate with the trees. The big tree is a white feather tree and the small tree is a green feather tree. Both designs that I painted on the front are Terrye French designs. You can view them both on ebay.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful productive week. Spring is just around the corner!!!!!

It's Bunny Time Again!!!!!

Hi Everyone, Hope you all had a great Valentin's Day. My husband and I went out for a quiet dinner and had a very nice time. It was good to get out just the two of us.

I worked on trees and special orders the rest of the weekend. I just listed a bunny tree on ebay. I painted a cute bunny on the front of the container that holds the tree. It's a Terrye French design. The tree would make a great centerpiece in the middle of your table as I have it shown in the picture. Right now I'm babysitting my grandson and he is napping, so I'm taking advantage of the quiet time.
Hope you all have a good week and I'll talk to you again soon. Thanks for stopping by!!!!!

Luck Of The Irish!!!

Hi Everyone!!! Hope your all having a good Monday. I have been trying to beat this cold that I have had. It seems to be lingering!! Now the hubby has it:(
I was able to get some work done this weekend. I worked on a St. Patrick's day tree. I really liked the way it turned out. I painted a Laurie Speltz's design on the wooden container. I'm going to try to get more Easter trees done this week. Today I worked on getting my workroom organized as much as I could. Of course as soon as I start painting it will be back to a mess again. It seems that it becomes a drop off for everyone's junk
that they don't know what to do with.
Well I hope you all have a good and productive week. Here are a few pictures of my St. Patrick's Day tree!!!

Welcome Spring!!!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!! It's been a long time since I posted anything here on my blog. I got a bad cold right after Christmas and it took me about 2 weeks to get over it. Then I had to put away all my Christmas decorations. So I got started late on my Valentine trees. The last few weeks I have been working on my Easter trees.I hope you all are surviving the cold weather. I have been watching all the reports on the news and it looks very cold. Here in California we are experiencing an unusually warm winter.
Well I hope it gets warmer for all of you soon. Here are a few pictures of the trees I have worked on recently. Have a good week!!!!

Gingers Everywhere!!!!

Hi Everyone!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Now Christmas is just around the corner. The last few weeks have been a difficult time here in my household. Our beloved dog Mia passed away here at home. She was 11 years old  my best friend and companion. She sat with me for countless hours in my workroom while I painted. We all miss her terribly. A few days after that ordeal we all came down with the flu. I got better just in time to prepare for Thanksgiving and celebrate with the family. So this weekend I'm trying to catch up with orders and listing trees on ebay. It's hard to catch up with things when your busy and you lose so many precious days. Oh I forgot I still have to decorate the house!!!!
I was able to list two Gingerbread trees on ebay. If you get a chance have a look. Well I hope you all enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!!!
