(A couple of my paintings...the one on the top sold today.)
That's OK, I'd rather be right here at the shop. I've had several regular customers come in, the breezes are blowing the curtains, the sun is shining, I have a cool drink and a good book and it's exactly what I need right now. I'm reading Tara Frey's book, "Blogging For Bliss" in between customers. I ordered it (and Sue Whitney's "Junk Beautiful-Outdoor Edition") from Amazon last Sunday and much to my surprise it came yesterday, a full week before it was scheduled to arrive! I've gotta tell you, Tara's book is so interesting! I am an avid follower of her blog and true to form, the book does not disappoint. Tips, profiles of bloggers (some of which I already read), everything from: why blog, how to blog, how to beauty up your blog, how to use it as a tool for business and just general blogging issues and fixes. I LOVE this book! Thank you Tara!
I also have to mention that I got my new issue of Romantic Homes this week. Among all the usual great reads, there's a couple of awesome articles on fellow blogger Debbie Dusenberry of "Curious Sofa" in Kansas City. There's an article about her home and another about her shop. There are plenty of wonderful pictures that illustrate her style.

I do a lot of folk art for the antique shop.
I hope you enjoyed this look at a few of my paintings.
We'll do it again sometime...
