New Clock Listed On Etsy

I have gotten a little lazy with posting but I am back.  I completed a new Bat Wing Mantle Clock.  This clock is painted with my favorite colors black and orange and is also gold leafed.  The clock face has been painted with a Crescent Moon and a Witch riding on by.

I am moving on to other projects.  I have so many things around here waiting for me to get to them I don’t know where to start.  I have had the winter blahs and need to shake things up a bit.  So, we’ll see what comes from that!

Back in November I painted a large bowl for Brandon’s Aunt.  His family threw her a surprise party for her 80th birthday.  I painted the bowl, loaded it with some goodies, shrink wrapped it and put a bow on it.   I forgot to take a picture of it.  She was nice enough to take a couple pictures of the bowl and mail them to me :-) ……

The weather here has improved since my last post.  We have had about a week of no snow.  the snow we had is slowly melting but I am sure we are in for more!  For now we are enjoying this less extreme weather.

We’re Living In Whooville!!!

Happy New Year!   Snow! Snow! Snow!.  It just won’t quit!  It’s been snowing   non-stop for the past four days.  I know that this is just part of the joy of living in the snow belt  of Northeast Ohio but really, it can stop now and give us a break!

It has snowed so much that the snow is collapsing on itself and making everything look like we are living in Dr. Suess’ Whooville.  Everything looks like big rolly polly  marshmallows.  Here are a couple of pictures of our deck and backyard…IMG_5482

With the lovely weather I won’t be doing much traveling and that will give me plenty of time to get the clock I started before the holidays done and start on a couple projects I have been thinking about doing.   :-)
