Checking In and How Fun is Pinterest?

Am I so way behind everyone?  I just discovered Pinterest, and I am hooked!!!  Such fun, and I get to see my blogger friends and my facebook friends and oh so many interesting people and ideas!

This weekend will be busy, with an antiques show tomorrow morning, and my lovely grandbaby tomorrow night, then I think I will be creative on Sunday, stopping only to get a little pampering at the nail salon.

In the meantime, my little etsy shop is keeping me busy, too.  I sold my last big birdcage yesterday, and I'm hugging the box and wishing I had a place to keep it where everyone could see it.  Luckily someone wants it really badly, and she has promised to keep it and love it.

Nothing special in the air right now, just had a quiet moment on a Friday night after a very hectic week.  Hope all of you have a great weekend - create, rest, love, all the good things!

My Favorite Things

I'm having trouble coming up with something as clever as everyone else does for their blog - I need to make more time, because it is so much fun to hear from others and share news, art, ideas, challenges, etc.  This January has started off with a terrible mind block as far as my artwork goes, so I am trying to work around that block and do some fun doodling on my gourds and slates and wood pieces.

So, here are a few items I've been working on, what do you think?  The birds have never had such nice homes, ready to move in, already designed and "landscaped".  I'm thinking of a series of items painted like this, maybe a slate, a canvas bag, or a pillow - what about terra cotta pots to match??  Hmmm!

In the meantime, one of the reasons I don't take the time to blog is that I am very busy being Nana!!  Our lovely little granddaughter has captured my heart and soul, and I can't help myself!
