Turkey Time in DC

This year we spent Thanksgiving in Washington DC, where my daughter is doing an internship with The National Defense University.  
It was a beautiful time to be in DC!  

One of the highlights was going to The National Gallery of Art and getting to view such an immense collection of modern art!  Below are a few of my favorites:

We also did a lot of walking, shopping, sight-seeing, eating great food, and just being with each other.

My only wish would have been that the entire family could have been with us!
We missed you Trav, Meg, Ollie, Tay, Jake, Fin and Pip!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This pretty much sums up my personality....I couldn't decide on which image to use!

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!

Sister's Wedding Painting

My Sister, Ann, married her high school sweetheart this past August.  All the sisters love Bobby and are so happy for both of them!  When I asked Ann what she wanted for a wedding gift, she knew immediately.  She wanted a family floral painting.  So, I met my sisters and nieces in Arkansas and we had a painting party.  She wanted her bouquet of flowers to be all shades of pinks and reds.  I think it turned out really pretty!

She also wanted glitter!  So I added the glittered berries and put glitter dots inside the small pink roses.  Since I knew the painting was going to be hung in her shabby chic guest bedroom, I finished the edges by applying vintage wallpaper and pink velvet ribbon.

Again, here are the BEFORE and AFTER pictures:

To make it a special, I put their wedding date on the vase.

I don't know why, but I just love the legs on these witches!
I have also painted witches legs in the past and these are screaming to to be painted.
