These are my new acquisition's. They're wonderful little oil paintings done by my friend Linda.
They are tiny--2" x 2" and 2" x 2 3/4" canvases. Treasure's all. I have 3 of them which makes it a "collection". I'm sure there will be more down the road for me since I envision seeing them in all the rooms of our house. I just love looking at them.
I should point out that the sail boat was a gift for hubby--he enjoys boats. No, he doesn't go out on the water- just loves picture's of boats. Granddaughter Paige pointed that one out and said Grandpa would enjoy it. And she was right. She's always so thoughtful.

This one is an adorable little bowl-with a cat painting in it. Another addition to my collection of "Cat things " that I collect. I wonder if I'm addicted to "collecting" stuff.
Anyway, I picked this one up at an Art Fair in Midway, KY that I spent the day at with Paige, my daughter-in-law and her mom. What a delightful girls day out we had.

There's Something About Etching

I've been etching to tell you something.....hehehe. But really, I've been busy etching brass for a project that I have in mind.

I'm pretty pleased with the way these two came out. I colored the one on the right side with my torch.Here's a necklace that I just finished. It's copper with fresh water pearls. Going to put this one on Etsy as soon as I get more views of it. I've lost the good light for now ---tomorrow is another day.

My goal is to try some of the projects from Mary Hettmansperger's book " Wrap,Stitch,Fold & Rivet". Deryn Mentock at issued a jewelry challenge to work through Mary's book with her through August. There's a chance to win one of Deryn's pieces.
I think working through a book like this is a great idea. You can learn something new or try something that you haven't done in awhile. Good luck to all who try.

Bling is the Thing

Granddaughter seems to be going in the direction of being a jewelry designer. She made this at the art fair that I participated in last week-end. Good job don't you think? She's 9 Years old.
I've been reminded that it is Flag Day today. Check out

Windy Art Fair

Well, I'm back....Did an art show in our town on Friday----did O.K. My town has planned to do an art show once a month until September. These are so much fun to do because it's a small town and I enjoy getting to meet my neighbors.

My kids and grandbabies showed up too.And DH didn't have to work so was able to come too. It was really windy so I was glad to have the tent,but it was sure hot.
This is one of my tables at the show.
