Lotus Flower

Hello Friends.  So glad you stopped by.  Can you believe the way the gas prices are going up?  They're reporting that parts of Florida are paying $6.00 a gallon.  Outrageous!  I know I'm not paying as much as some folks are, but that doesn't mean it isn't hurting me just as much.  It's ridiculous.  And as bad as I feel I am economically, I know there are plenty of others in worse shape than me.  Those are the ones I feel for because I know they're really hurting.  Hopefully this won't last too long and we'll be back down to a reasonable price soon.  There's always hope.  Right?

Well, now that I've vented, here's this week's creation.

Ain't it purty (hence the blog title)!  I thought it turned out so good that I tried it in another color.

I think I like this one better.  What about you?  Which one do you prefer, pink or yellow?

I plan on making some tutorals sometime in the near future, but right now I'm concentrating on getting a variety of  products made to sell on Etsy.  Do you think my painting is of selling quality?  Please let me know what you think.  Also I would love for you to follow my blog.  And if you have a blog, let me know so I can return the favor.

I also want to send a thank you to Tanya at Blogelina for all her help.  She has so many resources for us newbie bloggers with tips, articles, classes, you name it.  If you're considering your own blog, take my advice and visit her at .

Til next time, have fun!

New Petunias

Hey there my friends.  I'm back with two more Petunias. Whatcha think?

You think this will draw hummingbirds in?  Maybe I need to make a feeder to go with it.

I absolutely love the color of this one.

Ain't they purty!  Then again, I may be a little biased.  Ya think!!  Til next time, have fun.

Flower Stepping Stones

Well hello friends!  I've been busy this week.  Whadda ya think?

Ain't they purty!  The blue one didn't take a good picture because I had already clear sealed it and the sun gave a reflection.  I have a couple more colors in mind to do maybe later.

Til next time, have fun!

Painted Flower Basket

Hello Friend. How's your Saturday going? I'm kinda in a melancholy mood. Today would have been my maternal Grandmother's 100th birthday. She's been gone since 93 but I still miss her.

I have been working on a new project.  I'm trying my hand at painting.  I'm no artist, that's for sure, but I don't think I did half bad.  This is a basket of hydrangeas. Can you tell what it is that I painted it on?


It began as a retaining wall block.  You know. The kind that lays on its side.  So, what ya think? Not half bad, huh.

Till next time, have fun!
