waiting for spring sunshine

Oooooh, I love the light when it bounces off beautiful glass...
At my house the temps have dropped to the 20's and there's a little ice - and threats of snow...
But I'm waiting for SPRING!
I know the day is not far off when I will see the sun shine all day,
and my lovely glass topiaries will once again sparkle in the sun's golden glow..

this is Little Miss Green Eyes - at the 'factory' so to speak

and  here she is on stage for her formal presentation...
are you thinking St. Patrick's Day?
Yes, me too ...

'Silver Beauty'..
Perfect in the garden, but also makes a great table centerpiece,
especially for a party or date night ...

and....   'Blueberry'
how pretty on your porch or patio
or along with Easter or birthday
celebration table

Limited only by your imagination...
How would YOU use these pretty pieces??

Painting at the Beach

Just home from another great week with Ros Stallcup.  Such fun to be with a group of lovely ladies, AND to get to paint new projects with Ros, AND to be at the beach:) 

We take our lessons seriously --

but we have a lot of fun too!!

Group dinners are a great way to relax and get to know each other ...
Mother-Daughter creative time is priceless
Three new friends ..
travel buddies -- our Jersey Girls
Local BFF's
Ros and Clera -- special friends ..
Some of our Carolina Girls
Painting partners -- Smiling faces
More Carolina Girls ...
and more Carolina Girls -- Best Buds
(better than that other description :)
Local friends - from Newport News, and York County

But ... Miss Opal wins the prize ... for ageless beauty -
our inspiration

Here's the whole happy group --
our smiling faces - and purple shirts!

It wouldnt be winter at the beach without improvement projects ...
and we are glad they take such good care -
this year's project was repainting the whole exterior
fresh - and ready for summer!
(much better than last year's jackhammer project!!!!:)

Final sunrise of this session  -
