Paintings and Thriftings!






So here are some new goodies to gander at.....The top photos are painting I've been slinging paint at and the last two are recent thrifted goodness. The more thrifted goodies I find, the more I want to include them in my Etsy shop. I have already included two thrifted goodies. I am making a full hearted attempt to make my Etsy shop more successful. So far, I've just started it, put a few things in and let it sit. But no more! I want it to work for me...so I have to work for it.

I've been growing up a lot lately.....(pretty good for someone almost 30) But, as we all know, growing can be painful....but it's neccesary. I feel like I'm becoming a better person. I also realize that our choices lead us down certain paths.....common sense, yes.....but sometimes realizations like this take awhile to sink in. And my realizations are sinking in.....and I'm focusing more on what life means to me and can it mean for me. What is it that I want? What are my passions? What do I need to lose to gain what I want? Etc, etc. I feel like everyone goes through this, some sooner and later......I think a lot of my current "growth" has to do with turning 30 and considering all those things I was going to have done before 30.....my to-do list is still pretty long!

Well, I've rambled and carried on.....making little or no sense. You know, I hate stream of consicousness mess but my blog seems to be just that.....well thanks for having it out with me. I promise my next posts won't be so........exasperating.

Have fun!

P.S. Sherry and I will be doing a holiday market on Nov. 21 called Hanna's Holiday Market. Come by and see us! Click the link for more info!

Your paintings are beautiful! And that is the cutest mug!

I know what you mean about trying to grow up. I attempt to think about these things, but then I'll just go back to my old ways. Maybe one day :)

That festival looks fun to go to. I wish it wasn't on the same day as the ICE festival in Atlanta. You should do that sometime!

Love the telephone booth painting! Oh, and love that mug too... I am trying to figure out what it is though... is he a slice of bacon? or an orange monster?

The orange mug says "MUSCLE" on the bottom....so I'm assuming it's a muscle....it's kinda weird, but lovable!
