As promised here is my latest project, it didn't turn out the way I had pictured it in my mind. I think it is okay, but will work on the next one to achieve more of the look that I want. This is a little keepsake box, the top looks a little pink in the photo but it is really red. The inside is black with a black & white butterfly.
The photo below is the last photo that I posted a few weeks ago:And here is the progress. Boy is this a lot of work. My goal is to have it finished by Thanksgiving. (So keep your fingers crossed) But I have made some good progress. Basically I will be working on the Sugar Plum Fairy in the next week or two.
Well I hope everyone has a great artful week. I have lots of work to do. I am continuously working on the stocking plus trying to squeeze in other projects. Hugs to you all *** Renea

We got to see our Grandkids this weekend, we met our Daughter & Son-In-Law in Brownwood. We met them for lunch @ Underwood's BBQ & visited with them for a couple of hours. They bought our old pickup & we were meeting them to bring them the truck. Those 3 boys are so cute & fun! Love them so much, wish we could see them more often.I am still working on Kennedy's stocking, I will try & post photos sometime this week, I have everything done except the sugar plum fairy. Well one of her legs is partially done. I hope to have her stocking done way before Thanksgiving! We are going to be so busy from now until after the first of the year! WOW! Can't believe it is already close to the end of the year again. Where does the time go?
I have been working on something new, but still not finished. I hope to finish them sometime this week. However I did make some cute paper mache' letters & then stamped them. What do you think?
I think these letters are fun and would be a great gift idea. They are about 1" thick and about 7-8 inches tall, and about 5 inches wide.
Well not much going on here. Getting ready for bed. Hope you all have a great week. Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to read my post. Hugs to you all, my friends! ***Renea

I have painted a new Lucy with a new technique, or at least new to me. I followed some instructions in Kelly Rae's new book "Take Flight" & came up with this Lucy that I named "catch a falling star". So here she is...............................
What do you think? Do you like? I wasn't sure I would like her, but now that she is complete I like her. I like the stars. The stars are attached with a nail in top of the wood canvas with copper colored wire, so that the stars hang loose. I am looking forward to trying another of Kelly Rae's techniques from her book.
Remember to sign up for the giveaway, leave me a comment about one of your funniest moments. Hugs to all of you my friends***Renea

Lisa & I had a blast! I am giving away a small travel case with tons of zipper slots for all kinds of goodies to be stashed, a cute hanging frame that you could put your own photo in (this came from Round Top) it is made out of fabric, a Lucy post card, 2 valentine post cards, 3 wooden spools, a vintage hankie (from Round Top), a tag with 5 paper covered clothes pins, small pack of kleenex, and a note pad with pen. If you put a link on your blog back to this site I will enter your name twice for the giveaway. Good Luck to everyone.
And now here are some photos of me & Lisa at Round Top the biggest flea market in Texas. Of course one of our most favorite places to visit was the Junk Gypsies. They had some really cool jewelry & neat T-shirts.
There was miles & miles of tents with all kinds of stuff, new stuff, old stuff, vintage stuff, antiques, you name it, it was there! Boy were we tired friday night. We got there Friday around 9am & didn't leave until around 4:30 or 5PM. Then on Saturday, Lisa went with her daughter Meagan & grandbaby Katrina & I went with my daughter Dusty. We had so much fun. We are already planning our next trip in April.
Don't forget to sign up for the giveaway. Hugs to you all ***Renea

But we will shop til we drop! Two great days! I'm sure I will have plenty of photos when I return. Hope you all have a great weekend! And Les we will miss you dearly! I know we will think of you often. Hugs***Renea
