A Final Goodbye..

Today my Brother's, Sister's & I
said our Final Goodbye
to Our Mom.....
as she was laid to rest.

Helen Peters
Aug. 28, 1930 - Feb. 4, 2013

Even though My Mom
 passed away in February...
we had to wait for her burial,
per the Funeral Home,
or pay an extra cost to have
a burial in Feb. when it was Winter.

It was tough going
through this again...
But she is finally at Peace now
and with our Dad.

We stayed & watched as
they were lowering the casket 
into the Vault in the ground.
And, just as they started to
lower it, a Chipmunk jumped 
into the Vault.
We were all a little frantic
as they had to stop & get the
poor little fellow out.
But in the end...
we all had a little chuckle
and I bet Mom did too!

Always in Our Hearts!
We Love You Mom!!

Getting back into Painting.....

I've been trying hard to get back
my Painting Mojo....
The weather has been nice,
and my items have been selling
at my Sister's shop, where I have them.
Orders have been coming in
and I have been so Busy.

This is an old window I had done
for a customer.
She wanted bright flowers
and a bird house.

A Screen I had painted.
Sold the next day.

These fence are a hot item right now.
I had gotten a roll of this 
wooden snow fence from my
Sister, last fall.
I still had some left,
I cut it into sections,
dry brushed it white,
cut out some wood flowers
and  attatched to the fence.
The bright colors seem to
be in.
These are all sold.

I had many special request
orders for signs.
Here's a few that I had done
for customers...
all Sold!

Man Cave is painted on an old
piece of wood.
Home is where your Harley is...
Sold 4 of these....
painted on a piece of  flooring.

Special request for some ladies...
Welcome to Margaritaville
in bright, beachy colors...

This one is popular...
sold 4 of these.....

These are painted on
 flooring pieces that
my Brother-in-law saved for me.
Both Sold.

This was a special request order
and a challenge.
This lady wanted this sign 4 ft. long.
The words are all hand painted.
This took me forever
It says....
Dream Believe Trust Laugh Love LIVE

An Old suitcase I painted...

and a shovel....

Thanks for stopping by
and taking a look.

Our Hearts and Prayers go out to
all those in Oklahoma.
