Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction

Good Morning! Tim & I headed down to the Orange County Fairgrounds this weekend to attend the Barrett-Jackson auto auction. We've watched it on television many times & when we heard they were coming to California we decided to attend. It wasn't exactly what I thought it would be but it was great to see some of the gorgeous cars. It was a nice little getaway. Have a wonderful creative week everyone!

More Yard Art

Friday is here & my sister, Gail has gone back to Washington. I am already missing her:>( I am posting the last of the yard art we did. There's still some work to do in the yard but we are getting there. I would love to make some more of these but need to find someone that can supply me with the metal stakes. I am on the hunt!
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Armoire Makeover

I am posting some pictures this morning of an old armoire that I've had for several years. I was going to discard it until my sister came up with the idea to paint it.
For around $20.00 she transformed this old piece into a lovely new one for me.
I could not be happier with the way it turned out. I love the shabby chic white! A big thank you to my dear sister for all she does for me. I LOVE you, Gail!

The Beginning of Yard Art's yard art. My sister, Gail is visiting from Washington & she did a little yard art class for me. Gail took this class in Washington originally with Julia Jae at . We had so much fun with these. You simply collect some cute dishes (glass not plastic)& make your arrangement. Your arrangement is attached with liquid nails. Once it sets, you attach the arrangement to a metal pole that has a flat slug (round flat metal piece)attached. You also attach to the actual pole using liquid nails also. Once everything is set good, you place them in the yard. How cute are these? I will be posting a few more in a couple of days. Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out there!

Rest in Peace Sweet Lucy

Sunday is upon us & a beautiful day it's going to be. I'm posting a 12x12 image transfer I did about a week ago. This is my brother & sister-in-law's dog, Lucy. Lucy has gone on to the Rainbow Bridge recently and she will be sorely missed. Wayne & Sharon received their picture last week & were very pleased with it. We will miss you, Lucy!

New Sheer Heaven Image Transfer-Meet Simon

I received a note a couple of weeks ago from Denise that happened to see one of my image transfers on another blog. It happened to be one that I did of my dear little friend, Tweedles. It just so happens that Denise has 2 adorable pugs named Simon & Henry. She requested I do image transfers of her 2 sweet boys also. Today I am posting one of Simon. Simon is 2 years old & he lives in Patterson, New York.
I am posting the original picture I received from his mom, Denise as well as the transfer. Simon, you are positively ADORABLE! How could I go wrong with this handsome young man! Happy Hump Day!

Jewelry Assemblage Class in Washington

Good Morning! When I was in Washington last month Gail & I took a jewelry assemblage class from Julia Jae at Gail visits Julia's studio in Everett Wa quite often. Julia has a wonderful studio & is one of the most generous people I have taken a class with. She had so much stuff for us to choose from. Basically , we took some different jewelry pieces, took them apart & then re-assembled to our taste. The two necklaces below are what I came up with. It was great fun & I thank Gail for the birthday gift & Julia for conducting the wonderful class!
