Owl Art

Yeah! I did an art project this weekend, and of course it is an owl canvas. It turned out well I must say so myself.


I felt it was missing something so I had to add.

Making Progress

I have made great progress in my craft room. All boxes are now empty. I have a lot or organizing to do but it is starting to look good. I am hoping to do a project tomorrow.
I hung some wall groupings in the entry way and hallway today. It takes me awhile to figure out how and where I want things to go. I still have some painting to do but I was tired of looking at bare walls. I am not in the painting mood these days so I will just take stuff down when I am ready to paint. At least they all have one coat on them and you have to look pretty close to see that they need a second coat.
Terry went with Keshia (our daughter) today to help her buy herself a new vehicle. He was pretty touched by her when she told him that she is so proud to call him her dad. He is her step dad but she has always considered him her dad.
Lashia is starting to say more and more words. I asked her what her name was and she says "Me" So cute! Hard to believe that she will be 2 years old in a couple of weeks.
Terry and I were going to go out tonight for supper but he was pretty tired when he got in. The radiation is starting to make him very very tired. So I cooked us some catfish, scallops, sweet potatoes and peas. It was very delicious. We had some wine and really enjoyed ourselves.  I had two glasses of wine and could not believe how tipsy I got.
Working on getting some audio books ripped to my computer so I can give the discs to my sister in law tomorrow. Love those audio books.

Childrens Glider Chairs ... Country Corner Woodworks and Crafts

We made these gliders for the the grand daughters Riley and Dyani back in 2001 for Christmas. It was a lot of work and took a lot of time to do these, but it was well worth it. They turned out just beautiful.

Welcome Country Cow Sign

We saw this cow in an ice cream shop in Myrtle Beach. I took a picture of it and came home and designed it. I think it turned out really cool.

Adirondack chairs are our specialty in our wood shop business. We have made many and they last forever. You wouldn't think a wood chair is comfy but they are very comfy.










This chair we decided to do a paint stain on it. turned out pretty nice.

My Owl Obsession


Ok here is my latest owl find. I have come to love owls thru my sweet grand daughter, Lashia. I had bought a ceramic owl at a yard sale just because it was so cute. I sat it up on a shelf and almost forgot about it. One day when Lashia was just a baby ( not sure but she was under a year old) she noticed the owl and was scared of it. So each day I would take it down and let her get to know it better. Come to find that it was a music box owl. I would wind it up and sit her on the floor with it and pretty soon she started to give it hugs and kisses. Owl was also the first word she could really say well and the HooHoo sound too. Needless to say she loves owls and her mommy did her room in owls and her and I are now Owl crazy!
