New projects: Complete potty training Winston!!! :)

BTW- I LOVE that hairdo! If only it were realistic...and weather proof.

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

There is a buzz going around the blogosphere.....and your little corner is no exception!

I think I want a cat painting....i wish I had some decent photos of the two together....hmmmm

Pat said...

I went to an outdoor art show this weekend -- a favorite activity with a long history!

Martha's cat has a fantastic name, and your painting is so fantastic!

My son and daughter-in-law have a cute pup and he'd make a great subject...I'll have to search through some photos.

I like your painting of Martha's cat--wonderful! And thanks for sharing the photos of your day, I especially like the shot of the cloth and color pencils.

Mrs.French said...

I am loving all you newness.

Clare said...

Ditto fellow poster on the potty training issue.

My current project is finishing knitting my first baby sweater. I have 3 weeks left until the shower and I am minus two sleeves and a front!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I think the hair is fabulous. So very "wash and wear," n'est pas? ;-)

Happy bday to your hubby, too.

My new project needs to be figuring out a way to scale back work hours so I can have fun!

Donna said...

I like your painting of Martha's cat, Fifi, and also I just saw the painting you did of Maggie at Daisy Cottage. Fabulous! Love it.

Hugs,

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Love the painting. Looks just like Martha's cat... love the Rooster chair too.
I had a small parrot when growing up and yep they make a wonderful alarm clock, but not at an hour we liked! :))

Marie Louise said...

Been so busy with school, work, kids, etc. haven't been visiting in while. You have tons of lovely new things! I like the hair-do - is that the style you went for? Looks like you could easily throw that together in the morning ;-)

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Those parrots were in YOUR trees? oh my how pretty. How noisy. lol
The squirrels get the walnuts around here and plant them in our yards. In my pots....everywhere. We have free trees coming up out front but I pull the rest. Enjoy your pretty birds. :)

Aim said...

I want that hairstyle so bad, LOL!!! Very inspiring remainder of the post, reminding my of MY new project-- a wooly cabled blankie-sweater. I can't wait to cozy up in this when it gets cold out. I'd better get knitting....

Ms. Tee said...

Oh, the hair! :) And such a cute painting of Miss Martha's kitty!

My Petite Maison said...

Can't wait to hear about the new hairstyle - the one above may hurt your neck a bit.

I love, love, love my Chocolat Luncheon Party and posted about it tonight ;)

Hope your husband had a nice birthday!

I love the picture of Vivaldi and those figues - figues every morning here lately ~ yum! Off to look at your store.

Love the parrots ~ they can be quite noisy though when in need of attention ;)

A week full of projects for me too and then some.

Again, I LOVE the painting!

I love the alarm clock....but I think you might want to try a different hairdo lol. Very yummy looking cake...happy birthday to the hubby!

Amy from Texas said...

I love Martha's cat painting! I hope she buys it from you.

I'm going to re-finish and paint an old table and chairs set for my little girl. If it ever cools down here, I'll get around to it.

Just wanted you to know I featured you on my site...

To me September always started the "new year" so I love it in the respect that there are many beginnings. This year is the last my boys will be homeschooled. And, fingers crossed, I'll start selling baked items on Etsy in the fall.
