Back in My Studio at Last

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Back in my studio yesterday for the first time since the middle on November, With all the candy making and the holidays I didn't get to do any painting before the holidays and for the month on January, I have spent my days at the computer getting the website up to date and opening the Etsy Shop. Of all the craft I have worked at in my life, decorative painting is my love. I went to my studio yesterday and it was so relaxing to just sit and paint and forget about everything for a while, I like it best when I am working on something I just want to paint and not on something on order. I completed three pieces yesterday. I am a very fast painter which you have to become if you intend to make money at it.

Darrell has been back in his shop the last couple day also. He loves it as much as I love to Paint. He has been working on a toy box for Madison since before the holidays, It is beautiful and I plan to paint some Faeries on it. I will share it with you when we get it finished. Lamps are one of the things we both love and the two below are made from vintage silver teapots. Darrell does the electrical work and then it is my turn, I painted one of these with soft pink roses and the other with hydrangea , These two designs are my best sellers, The other item is a vintage sewing machine drawer with a beautiful hydrangea design on it. You will find these for sale on my website and also on Etsy.

We got up this morning to an Ice storm which covers the states around us. I guess the best thing about being retired is we do not have to leave the house if we don't choose to. Very few advantages to getting old. LOL! Roads are clear now but suppose to get more tonight and tomorrow.
Hope you are staying warm and enjoying your winter and to you in the South, Thank your lucky stars, The older I get the less I like the Winter.
Come visit my website when you get a minute,
