Old Wooden Window Re-Do!!

Image
I just love old wooden windows. There are so many things you can do with them. I've seen some beautiful designs from some great artists. As I've said before, I'm not an artist, but I do try to have fun. So, with one of my old windows, I painted one of my favorite beach/summertime sayings. I hope you enjoy it. The saying is..."May you always have a shell in your pocket, and sand in your shoes". Blessings, Deborah

Mrs. Tina Judah....a custom painted wine glass

Image
Hello Friday.....I hope everyone has had a great day so far. As I posted yesterday, our bulldog gave birth to 7 beautiful puppies....so I was "birthing babies" all day. But, I did find time to put the finishing touches on a custom painted wine glass. Mrs. Judah, work at The Heritage Bank, downtown Waycross, Georgia. She has handled my banking for years and is a beautiful woman with a great heart. So, to thank her for something she helped me with recently, I did her a special gift.

Birthing Puppies......and almost Give A Way Time!!!!!

This will probably be my only bog of the day...or maybe not....our bulldog, Sapphire, who is one of Three Dawg Lady Designs is giving birth today!!! We have 3 so far.....think about 6....from her size.

And, I'm almost to 100 Likes on my Facebook page....so hopefully will be able to start my Give A Way contest tomorrow. Blessings, Deborah
