Saturday painting

Just some more items, finished for our open house. I am in the usual, "how much can I get done at the last minute" stage that I always got to before a big craft show. The paint is flying and my mind is working overtime. There is a whole box of these 2 x 4's cut in the basement. They are leaving rapidly!

And all these pieces of scrap 1/4 inch plywood.

These still need jute glued on them.

And another snowman door.

I am still doing some knitting. I have a few scarves started and finished a hat for Kendall and am starting another one because I don't think that the first one is going to fit her.
Movie Critic Corner: John and I watched the movie Gran Torino last night. It is a Clint Eastwood film and I am not a huge fan of his movies. I wanted to watch Mamma Mia for the 5th or 6th time (he has not seen it yet and refuses to...I think if he could be guaranteed no one would ever find out he would...but then I would post it here and...well I digress) If you can get past the language in the movie, it was a great film with a great message. What a tearjerker though! We were both sitting there crying at the end. Now I know that I should not tell that John was crying, but he bad as I was! At the end, all that came to mind was a verse in John 15, I think, Greater love has no man that he lay down his life for his friends. Hope that I got that close to right without going to look it up.

Wow, Cathy, you amaze me at the amount of painting you can get done--what talent!

You should have lots of wonderful treasures ready for your open house...that is the same weekend as the Smicksburg Christmas event, right? I am probably going to have a sale at the shop that weekend too to take advantage of the additional traffic in the area...still trying to work it all out...

Good luck on your "race to the finish"!

Oh, how I wish I could paint as you do!!! I took some lessons from a local artist and did OK but my confidence level was low and I didn't keep practicing so my "talent" left very quickly. LOL! I can stencil, does that count?? Ha, ha!

Hope you have a fantastic show!!!

I really do enjoy your blog so much and i doI love your work. You are so talented!
My Hubby John and I watched Grand Torino the other night. We both cried. I agree with you that once you got past the language the message of the movie was wonderful.
