More painting and nature

Finished these items this week, still cramming for the open house. The middle of this is chalkboard paint. I'd like to get a few more of these made. And more snowmen...



Thursday evening I had to do a "favor" painting that I have been putting off. A man had brought some slate to me late in the summer and wanted a stone in front of his house painted with his name on it. I have been procrastinating that job for over a month. I finally ran out the other night after work and got it finished. It really didn't take that long...why do I do that?
These are pics from on the way home from there. I forgot, of course to take a pic of the stone once it was painted.

Wish that I could have got a clearer pic of these birdhouses. They are all along this road.



And these little friends stopped to pose once I almost hit them.



This bush is in my MIL's yard. Every year it just glows with color.





And these mums started from this little start of a plant that I had years ago. They have been passed out and given away to who knows how many people. They are the heartiest mums I have ever grown.

I so love your painting. It's all wonderful, but I'm drooling over your snowmen. The wood pieces are such interesting shapes. Good luck, though I doubt you need it for the open house. The chalk board idea rocks!

Hi Cathy
oh I love everything but the snowmen are the cutest. I am doing snowmen myself lately. Will be on my blog hopefully tomorro and an angel canvas.
Those mums are incredible.
Good luck getting your open house ready.
