A Little Bit of This and That

This may be heavy with pics, but we all like to look at pictures, right?  I know, I do!!!

Let's see, I painted a St. Paddy's pic on canvas.  Never painted on canvas before, so thought I would try it as this would have been a hard piece to cut out of wood and paint!!!!
I think the glass is glaring as there is white lines/spots on the hat.  They're not there in person!!!

Then I put my "green" out.  I don't have too many snowmen with green scarves, but I do have leprechauns and bears!!!!

 Oh, yah, my ceramic guy I painted many years ago, when I went to a ceramic class.  He's holding a white pipe.
My tree.  Not much green on there.  Just some balls and green, glittered ferns.  Some gold sprays.  And a cluster of green balls with one gold one with green swirls.  My red bow on that snowman looks out of place now.  I do have green candles in the candleholders that you can't see in the pic!!! lol

Before I put the snowmen away, I said I forgot to show you all the snowmen on my frig.  Some wood, plastic canvas, cut-out material, slate and ceramic.

And today is Fat Tues and had our annual celebration at our church.  Here's Monica all decked out!!!!
Then they have a donut eating contest.  The kids love this and look forward to it.  Monica's getting better at it.

That's about it for this and that. 

Thanks to all the new followers I got.   I love all my new friends.  I so enjoy getting comments.

Till next time,
Take Care,

Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everyone!!! 

I know, it's not valentine's day yet, but thought I better show you my Snoopy's before the day is come and gone.  I just got them out last week.  I would think about them while painting but didn't get up right then and there and get them, so one time, I thought I better get them out before it's over!!!!
 I just have the two big guys.  The pink one, he's cupid with his purple wings and bow and arrow.
And then he's dressed in his "nines" with a rose in his mouth, being all Casanova!!!!! lol
 Here's my little guys.  The front one, he's a knight in shining armor!!!
 The front one...all puckered up, ready to give you a kiss!!!!!
The front one, that a yellow clipboard with "love potion" and the beaker in his hand.  And with his glasses on, being Joe Cool!!!!!
They sit on my window sill where I paint and the two bigger guys sit on the paint bottles like the Christmas ones.  Just thought I would arrange the whole group together and take a pic.

Wow, what a weekend we had, blowing snow and cold!!!!!  Downright cold!!!!  Now today, the sun is shining and just makes me want to run around.  I love to run when the sun is out, but should stay home and get some bunnies made!!!!  I have so many different projects started, I now need to just finish them all up before I start something else, but I can't!!!!!

We have a steep driveway.  A good driveway for sledding.  Monica came out yesterday and hubby and her sled rode for a half an hour.  I bundled up, without the camera, and I wasn't coming back in or I never would have gone back out.... and watched them for awhile, till my fingers froze off!!!!  Then we came in and had some hot chocolate!!!  Hubby replowed the driveway this morning, so I'm sure with this sun, it will be all melted off by day's end!!!

It's my turn to cook tomorrow night, so that will be our valentine's day.  Hubby's birthday was yesterday, but we'll do the cake tomorrow night with Melissa and Monica here.  The cake you ask:  Chocolate with peanut butter icing!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  Hope it's a good one.

A short month

Our shortest month and I think the busiest!!!!  We had groundhog day today, which he saw his shadow so 6 more weeks of winter!!!!  Winter....what's that.  We haven't had much winter.  I'm not complaining, but when we want to see the spring flowers, there's going to be snow on the ground!!!! 
Then comes Valentine's Day.  A day for all the lovers out there.  We don't do to much, as hubby's birthday is the the 12th.  I did get engaged on Valentine's day 39 years ago.
Then we have President's Day to honor George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  William Henry Harrison was also born this month as was Ronald Reagan.
And this is a leap year.  We're always saying we need some extra hours/days, well, we get an extra day this year. 
With 2 less days, we'll be into March before we know it!!!!
Then spring won't be far behind....hopefully!!!!

Welcome my new followers and faithful readers.  I enjoy all the comments I get.  Keep them coming.
