Okay, now it really is Fall!

I know many have jumped on the Autumn bandwagon weeks before it actually began but…

I am a hold out. 

I don’t want to feel time is being rushed,

just enjoy each season as it arrives…

at my leisure.

Hand Painted Signs for August

Chicken Coop Rooster sign

Chicken coop sign

August was a rather slow month for special orders,

which was not a bad thing as I ended up with a busy cleaning schedule,

Nana’s Garden Three Roses sign

nanas AUg 31

and I had little time to paint.

Much to my disappointment

Customized Rules for a Happy Marriage sign

custom rules sign

Though what time I did get in the studio was soothing to the soul.

A large sign in progress, that is supposed to be a sunset and mountains.


Cleaning work is slowing down and will be very slow until ski season begins….

so that means “MORE PAINTING”!!  '

Woo hoo!

Custom Love For You sign in Lime

I really think that Love For You sign would look even better with a border to frame it. 

I need to do one for the site to show what it would look like with a border. 


This one is pure summer or maybe I should say Florida..Hawaii??

Anywhere the suns shines thru the winter is paradise to me. Smile

Paradise with starfish sign



And I did a sign for the front of the studio…

Flower Patch Sign

It may seem a bit juvenile but I thought the little bluebird was so whimsical and happy..

he just makes me smile each time I see him singing his little lungs out..

maybe I should add some musical notes coming from his beak

I need to get it hung…

right now it is just setting on my potting bench for its photo shoot.

I downloaded the cute birdie graphic from Free Pretty Things for You,

Keren has plenty of freebie fun things for you to download and use.

Now back to the studio I go…I have been under the weather a bit today but I have too much to do to just lay in bed (which is what I really feel like doing).

Happy Day!

Bye, Bye, August And Happy September All!

August is officially over…


September to me says “FALL”

                                even if 3/4’s of it is really technically still Summer.

But the world around me is already tucking away the green of summer and donning their Autumn colors,


The mums have arrived at the Garden Center…

and my garden is fading fast.

I see a truck load of mum’s in my future,

maybe, just maybe that will keep my flower addiction assuaged.

I can tuck them in some pots and decorate the porch of my  Studio (aka Art Cottage)


I can plant a few in my Buckets for an Autumn touch,

maybe snuggle a few pumpkins up against them.

I can get a brazier or raised fire pit to add to my new Garden room, to enjoy sitting by

and maybe roasting a marshmallow or two.

That should warm me on chilly Autumn nights.

And I always have my homemade, oh so delicious Pesto to bring back sweet memories of summer,

each and every time I eat it.

basil patties

(actually had some tonight, and it is to DIE for!)

I need to make another batch, I don’t think the 3 gallons I have in the  freezer will be enough to last all winter. Smile

So that being said I guess if I throw myself into some Fall decorating I will talk myself into letting go of Summer.

Around these parts there is a hint that Winter may be a dilly.


Next time I will share all the signs I did for August. 

Hmm, I think I should be working on some Fall themed signs…

any suggestions??


Good bye August…


Hello September…
