Painting on Screen



                                                   Always wondered how to paint on
                                                                       screen.

                            Last season while out antiquing I picked up these two window  sashes.


                                                            
                                                      


                                 Not sure at the time what I had planned for them
                                        so they sat in my studio till I started decorating
                                                         for Christmas.

Country Living



                                       You know you live in the country when.......

                               You wake up and smell not the roses but the farmers field.......
                                          he's been cleaning out the barn and spreading it
                                             on the fields all around you.

                                                         The sounds of the horses whinnying.......

                                                                               Whinnying horse



                                                                  The rooster...cock-a-doodle-do.....

                                      Queensville Antique Mall
                                          16,000 square ft. of
                                              eye popping, mouth watering
                                                              goodness!!


                  Yes we went to one of my favourite haunts......
                                      But this time we took the
                                                car.....

                                    This car......



                                                             our 49 meteor




                   

                                           49 Meteor Deluxe 4 dr


 We usually take the 49 Ford pick up,


 49 Ford




but this time we went for luxury.........lol   This car runs so smooth.

                                        Mr WWH restored this car back in 1979.
                                                     
                                                      Our kids road in the back
                                                                no seat belts......

                                                   It used to put them to sleep.

                        
                                                     We use this car for long distance travelling.

                  I took a few pictures.....sorry I forgot my camera and I'm using my Iphone.

                                                             
                                                        
                                                       Upon entering you see rows and rows of antique
                                                                            goodness.

                                                                    Well I'm on the hunt today for
                                                                                 anything ironstone.

                                                            
                                                                                   

                                                           Then I came to this booth..........
                                                                      
                                                          
                                                                  No Ironstone here but look at

                                                                right under that wooden box....
                                                                         Can you see it.....pottery????
                                                      Oh I like that white chair too, and the piece beside it.

Fresh Bouquet

                                          


                                    Happy to share with you my lovely large bouquet
                                                         of fresh flowers.







                           The giant sunflowers....don't  they just say fall is just around the corner.....

                                      Beautiful blue Hydrangeas......these I have separated into
                                                     their own vase hoping to dry them.......






                                  Green berries....bright yellow flowers...greenery....
                                                       Three Yellow long stem roses......







                                                             They sit in a very large Vase.

                                    Love to be able to preserve the sunflowers......
                                                      any suggestions???????







                                                         I have kept out the Yellow Roses
                                          and have used an old technique of spraying them with hairspray
                                                             to preserve them a little while longer.

                                                   Then I will hang them upside down to dry.


                                    Even tough summer is still with us for awhile
                                             fall keeps creeping into my thoughts....

                                           The crimson reds, bright oranges, tall leather boots,
                                                      sweaters on cool nights, and plaid blankets.

                           
                                         That large vase can be used for so many of my vignettes.
                                                                   I can fill it with candy.....
                                                                   I can fill it with Xmas decorations....
                                                                   I can fill it with greenery ......
                                                                   I can fill it with lights.....
                                                    I can fill it with......the list goes on and on and on......

                                                                 What would you use it for?

                                                            Thanks for stopping by!
                                      Love hearing from you, won't you leave a message!!
