These are my latest paintings on Etsy.

"I Want to Go Too" (sold)

and "Best Friends" (Sold)

I am really in love with these and I have a similar one in the works, but before I can finish it I have to finish my Jack O Lantern game for Nino's classroom party.
We have been very busy enjoying the fall weather. I have been trying to plan fun fall activities for the kids every weekend. Cheap, fun fall activities that is. Last weekend we went to a school fall festival, the flea market, and a candle lit tour of Daniel Boone's home. Actually, we learned it was really his son's, but he stayed there. I wish I had pictures. It was quite a night to remember. The whole historic town was lit by only candle light. Not an artificial light in the place! It was beautiful! Oh, and the sweetest little white chapel lit only in candle light. What a sight. It was a long night, 6:30 to 10:00pm and each building had a form of entertainment. There was music, poetry reading of Poe, history lessons and actors acting out little skits. It was quite a night, and a warm full moon night, perfect for walking around. If you live close by, keep it in mind for next year or it looks like they have another candlelight tour for Christmas.

I was finally able to paint yesterday! I have been building a deck with my dad for the last two weeks, which I must admit was kind of fun and .......a whole lot of work.

So I was so exited to finally have a day to paint. I did not even know what I was going to do, but I knew I was in the mood to paint an angel so here she is.

I have her listed on Etsy for now. I really do like how she turned out.

I used this painting book as a reference for body position. I love this book. It is one of my favorites to page through. My sister picked it up at the Library for me. What a find right! You know how they sell off the old books. This one might have been a whole dollar.
I always bring a few dollars when I go so I can come home with some old moldy smelling relics. The older the more interesting they usually are. I love all old books.

Thank You Mammy for the fingerless gloves and hat!! Rose loves them and wears them all the time.

Here is Rose riding her scooter up to her Grandma's to see what else she has knitted.

Oooooo, a pink scarf! Pretty.

Or it could be a pillow for a teddy bear.

Hopefully you will get through your long list of requests so you can open your Etsy shop. :)

Well, here are my funny witch sisters. They were pretty fun to make and even more fun to look at. They look just like my three sisters and I after a long night of talking, drinking and dice games. Ha ha

This is Mertle


and Bertie

I will get these up on Etsy tomorrow. I think I will list them seperately although I think they looks so cute together that it will be hard to break them up.
Also, Here is a spider that lives in my backyard. Have a wonderful weekend!
