Chase Your Dreams!

This morning I read something I liked: "When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase those dreams..... " I am a dream chaser, I have always been.... and life has been good to me.... but it takes guts and courage to keep doing it !!!

Have a creative day!

My Old/New Chandy

I bought this vintage chandelier on Craigslist about 6 months ago....cleaned it up and painted it red. All of the original prisms were in tact. It sat in the corner of the dining room ever since. Today my DH surprised me and put it up!! Little did he know, I had to add a sleeve and the ceiling medallion (old frame) first. I will redo it next week while he is gone. I didn't have the heart to tell him!! Isn't it sparkly and beautiful? I have a before pic somewhere .

Warm Hugs,

Holiday Decorating and M-C Courtly Check

These are glass ornaments I am painting for customers.

Real pumpkins I handpainted!

Love my pumpkins!

The candles are the LED ones...I used my art and created a scene....printed it on velumn and wrapped around the candle and tied with ribbon. This way I can interchange the scenes according to the holiday!

A lantern, I painted.

Love my pumpkins!! John thinks I'm crazy!!!

This is line art/watercolor I made..the date on it is 1983...found it in a folder the other's always like Christmas at my house...I am always finding things I made or partially made... How fun!! I need to reframe it's what I had on hand.

I love this time of year, even though it's still so hot here. I thought I would post some photos of what I have done so far for the fall season. It's not much, but I love it!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Warm Hugs,
