For indoors or out.

While cruising at Artfire, I saw this beautiful gourd and wanted to share it with you.

This is presented by SimplyGourdgeousArt and is beautifully done.

Hello...Up for sale I have a beautiful handpainted gourd birdhouse. I painted a beautiful bird flying among the tree branches to check on her nest full of eggs. I placed a pinecone petal roof on this house. The house is approximately 11 inches tall and 22 inches around. This house has several coats of sealer and may be placed inside or outdoors.

Take the time to check out this fine work and talk to you later.


The kids are back in School

The last couple of weeks this family has been busy getting people back to school. For more info please check out my other blogs for pictures and info. It was fun and exciting to see them start and continue a new part of their lives.

Now back to work.

WOW!!!! A Beautiful Still Life

Twiddlebugz Designz has made this lovely still life available for all of us to see and a lucky buyer to own. This could be the focal point in that prim, country or colonial kitchen or dining room. It was also be perfect for a den, library or family room. I truly like this piece and its versatility.
As a person who is decorating a 100 year old barn, this makes me more than smile!

Please visit TwiddlebugzDesignz and see this and more at:

The artist adds the following: I've painted this fruit still life on a cabinet door. It's been painted black, the fruit was freehand drawn and then painted. There is lots of drybrushing on each piece of fruit to bring out the highlights and shadows. A drybush of green has been applied around the border and the edges have been sanded for an aged/distressed look.

Enjoy your Tuesday,
