Martha's Done It Again!

Would you ladies look at this fun idea Martha Stewart had for a baby shower cake. And really this would be great for a first or second birthday two. Just do colors more primary or bolder pinks and greens.

When ever I'm a little dry on inspiration... I know I can count on Martha :)

A weekend of School Shopping and Painting

Well, here in Henry County, GA the kids start school August 2nd. So we had to take care of getting the girls all dolled up for the new year. We still need to get those pesky supplies...

And here's where I am with my painting. As you can see, I'm just beginning work on the steeple. And I'm rather excited about starting my first rag garland. I hope to have it ready to put up with my Fall/Halloween decor in a few weeks.

My etsy shop will soon have a New Halloween collection up too.

A Series

I'm starting a new series of paintings. The series will focus on old southern churches. I'm going large with super sized canvases and acrylics. I'll keep you posted!

Here's what I'm working from for the first painting in the series.

Birthday Bliss and A Little Trip

The Mermaid party was a blast. My lovely little mermaid enjoyed the party and her guest. And... mommy enjoyed seeing every one checking out the decorations!

Spiraling though the mountains of Tennessee are amazing views and areas to perch and take it all in.

The Natural Arch is one of the wonderful sights to see in the Big South Fork area of Kentucky.

The Cumberland Falls in Kentucky. Called the Niagara of the south, these falls are approximately 150 ft wide and 67 ft high. My grandparents spent their honey moon at the falls.

The lovely DuPont Lodge at Cumberland Falls. It was an amazing place.

The baby in the above picture is my great grandmother in the arms of her half Cherokee mother. Violace Parker married Webster Choate. She is about to celebrate her 95th Birthday.
