Look who loves the pool already and a walk on the beach.








We've been putting little Gracie may in the pool and she loves it. She actually cries when we take her out,of course the pool is like bath water around 80 degrees. Her brothers just splash all around her and she doesnt even cry. She's growing so fast.

And this piece called "A walk on the beach" has been driving me crazy for about two weeks, I kept going over the shoreline and I'm still not sure if i'm happy with it. But I think for now its done. Hope everybody is enjoying summer. My daughter is out of school for the summer so thats usually means busy,busy with the movies,beach,waterparks,shopping and out to lunch and then the I'm bored words come. She's going to high school next year that makes me sad so I'm going to enjoy her this summer. I decided to close my real store,in case you didnt know,I owned a real country store that sold antiques,candles,vintage, and country decor. The economy has been so slow and I have been trying to hold on to it,hoping that things would pick up but I know summer is even worst then the past few months so I decided to close. I'm happy with the decision. But the reason i'm mentioning it is because i'm going to be slowly listing some of the stuff I sold at my store on etsy in case any of you like vintage,primitives and other goodies. Have a great week.

Buffy! I adore your walk on the beach painting; it's stunning really and so calm and peaceful! Love your style! Gracie is a cutie and she's a natural to the water already! Aren't grand kids so much fun? She's beautiful really! Enjoy! xxoo

Buffy, sorry to hear about your store closing, but you know what they say--when one door closes....

Okay and Gracie--OMG!! Is she a cutie or what??? My older daughter is getting married next year for the 2nd time, so she's not that young and she's actually talking about having a baby! Wouldn't that be cool??!!

And your painting--perfect!--don't touch it!

I love your beach art. I think it's delightful. :)

So sorry to hear that you had to close your store. This economy is horrendous. Makes me so sad to see small businesses having to shut doors.

Enjoy your time with your daughter. The years really do go by way too quickly!!! Happy summer. Thanks for visiting my blog. ;)
