Mural Work

I've been doing a little mural work. It use to be a big part of my income until a couple years ago. When I went to Atlanta's Americas Mart, I picked up 70 new shops and was painting key fobs, frames, canvases, bottles, buckets, ornaments, stockings and plaques! I was so overwhelmed  with the massive orders, I had no time for mural work. I lost a bunch of those shops because I couldn't keep up. I have since cut my wholesale product line down to key fobs and ornaments only but I'm going to start adding some other items in the next few months. Wish me luck!
*There will be a painted name canvas hanging between the 2 palm trees.

My new shoes!

I spent the rest of my Mother's Day money on these Volatile flip flops. I love them! I'm 5'4" so not only do they make me feel tall but they are so comfortable!

Great Mother's Day!

I hope your Mother's Day was a happy one! I had a great one! Cash was my "gift" along with a box lid diorama Rachel made for me. I actually ran to TJMAXX with my cash as soon as they opened. I bought a bright blue and green tunic and some sunglasses to wear to our Mother's Day dinner at historical Hall's on the River
It was so good! I had a Seafood Hotbrown and we all shared banana peppers and fried green tomatoes AND hot fudge cake. I'm hoping we'll be able to become regulars there once we move into our new home since it's really just down the road from us!
We went back to the NEW house, my mother headed for the COT that Tom sleeps on , while the rest of us headed for the pool table.  I made it a fairly short stay. The girls and I came home and snuggled on the couch til bedtime. Tom stayed down there of course. He's trying to tame the landscape at the moment and has to stay on top of the yardwork.  I fear he's getting a little to carried away with the saw. I've laid down the law concerning the gigantic Wisteria that's growing by the porch. If it comes up missing, he will too!
