Patriotic Uncle Sam Feather Tree!!

Hi Everyone!!! Yesterday I took the day off and went shopping with my girlfriend. We hadn't done that in a long time. We shopped till we dropped and went to lunch. I'm having a baby shower for my daughter in June so I was also buying things for that. I purchased a lot of good prizes for the games at Home Goods. I just love that store. So today it's back to the work room. I finished another Patriotic Uncle Sam tree today.I painted an Uncle Sam on a metal bucket. This is a new pattern by Terrye French and Martha Smalley just love this one. I have the tree listed on Ebay. The rest of the weekend I will be working on more fire crackers. I hope you all have a great weekend. Denise:)

New Americana Feather Tree

Its a rainy day here in So.California. I don't mind the rain because we don't get a lot of it. At least I don't have to water my flowers today. I posted a new Americana feather tree on ebay today. I finished it last night. I painted a flag on the front of the box with a crow. This is a Terrye French design of course. Well I have to get back to painting. I won't be in my workroom tomorrow because I'm going shopping with my friend and out to lunch. I'm looking forward to it because I need a brake. Hope you all have a great day!!! Denise:)

New Americana Centerpiece!!!

Hi Everyone!!!! It was a beautful day today. Not too hot. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I painted a metal container. I found this great pattern in the paint works magazine by Lynn Andrews. It was a lot of fun to paint. Inside the container I put a set of my firecrackers, a red metal star, and a flameless candle. This would make a very festive centerpiece. This is something you could display now up until 4th of July. After Easter I put out all my Americana decorations. I have it listed on Ebay!! Hope you all have a great week. Denise :)

Primitive Americana Feather Tree In Sifter!!!

Well it has been pouring rain all day here in So. California so I was able to get another tree done. I started early on my patriotic items because I'm going to be busy in June with the baby shower for my daughter and of course the baby arriving in July. I painted part of a new pattern from Painting with Friends by Terrye French and Martha Smalley. It's called Four Seasons Weather vane. I painted the summer weather vane. I used one of my old sifters. I painted flags on wooden tags and I painted the Uncle Sam on a wooden stick . It's the same stick I used for the Santa's. I have it listed on Ebay. Thanks so much for stopping by. I do appreciate all the wonderful comments I receive!!! Have a great weekend. Denise

New Americana Feather Tree!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I had a big group of family for dinner and Easter egg hunts. I hope things are going to be quiet around here for awhile. Today I worked on an Americana tree. I painted a Terrye French design on the front of the box. Inside the box is a 24 inch feather tree. It has some hand painted wooden flags, red plastic stars, and some wooden yellow stars. At the top I attached an Americana bow and a cute little pinwheel. I have it listed on Ebay. I plan to be painting more Americana items in the next few weeks. Hope you all have a great week!!!!!

New Hand Painted Rooster Case

Hi Everyone it's been a really long time since I posted anything. My sister was here visiting me for two weeks. We had a really good time shopping and going out to lunch. We also just sat around a lot and talked and looked at photos. I also have great news that my husband and I are going to be grandparents for the first time. My daughter is due the end of July. Her and her husband are very happy. They have been trying for a long time. Everything seems to be going well. They are having a boy Ethan Robert. So of course I'm planning a shower. While my sister was here she helped me make table decorations and favors. It's been a fun time!!! I did manage to get a little painting in this past week. I have had these cases that I bought months ago and I finally got them painted. I painted this rooster on a small light weight case. Of course it's a Terrye French design. I love her designs. I have it listed on Ebay.Well I'm hoping to get more painting done these next few months. I hope you all have a Happy Easter. Denise:)
