Honeymoon Inn Sign!

Finally I have found time to post these pictures of the sign I painted. As you know I babysit my granddaughter Hattie Jane 3 to 4 days a week. I am not complaining. I love to do it. Ive been trying to paint alot lately..I would like to figure out how to paint with Hattie running around. Not sure if that will happen. I don't dare let her in my painting room. Anyway this sign is made from an old piece of chippy worn wood...I painted white roses on the pink old paint. I'm in heaven when I am in my studio creating something with paint.
I would like to thank everyone that has commented on my is a thrill to me when I read a compliment someone has left me. I keep wishing I had one of the beautiful jazzed up layout and heading like others blogs..I even have this heading that is to small for the space. I dont mean to whine..sorry...I need to buy the book Blissful Blogging. Again thank you...sally

What a lovely creation, the roses are so full & rich. Those wee ones can keep one busy, can't they.

Pop over to meet my friend & new blogger ~

Oh Sally...your sign is GORGEOUS sweetie! I'm in love with it ~ I know what you mean, sometimes our creating is last on the list, isn't it? As long as we finally get to do a little is what matters! xxoo, Dawn

Came across your blog on Lisa's Tattered and Tarnished and just had to see your painted roses as I paint as well....they are just beautiful...very light touch...BUT the real reason I am writing is the fact my grandmother's name was Hattie Jane.......brought back fond memories of a person that has been gone a long time...thank you for that...hope you will stop by and visit me when you get a chance...sounds like you have your hands full :) xojana said...

Hi Sally, it's nice to meet you.
Thank you for the lovely comments you made on my blog. You're more than welcome to come visit any time.
I love the Honeymoon Inn sign. I wish I had the talent to paint like you do.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Sally!
Your sign is just yummy. You paint the prettiest roses!
Thanks for coming by and leaving such
a great comment. The burlap drapes were made with real burlap I got at JoAnne. I cut the yardage I needed and then hung them out on a line outside and hosed them down to get rid of any loose fibers and the smell. Then I sewed a band at the top and the bottom. I used the natural selvage edge on the sides. They actually hang really well. I'm not sure what gravity will do to them over time. I'll have to wait and see, but they were so inexpensive to make if I have problems later I'll just take them down. Email me if you want to chat about them any more!

Hi Sally!
I LOVE your painted sign! You are sooooo talented indeed! I don't think I know how to hold a paint brush correctly so I totally envy you! :)
Just to give you a tip...your blog is beautiful as "white" is the new crisp thing now, so that means you are totally "hip"!
Another tip is to post more...we'd love to hear and see what you're up to!!!!
I know it's hard to paint and post when babysitting...Hattie is too precious!

everything vintage

What a wonderful painted sign! I so wish I could paint like this!!

Please let me know how your linens turn out. I had some that were very yellow and just threw them in the solution every time I had other things that I was soaking (I wear lots of white, which is crazy because I am so messy, hence all the soaking!)- sometimes it took a couple of times but eventually came out!

Hint- especially with pillowcases use very hot water- there is alot of oils on most pillowcases from the hair-

Hi Sally....

I didn't read through all of your comments....but here's a suggestion from a NON-TECHIE (so take it with a grain of salt) about your header. It's soooo cute, by the way. If you'd like to make it bigger you can re-size it. I use picnik for that. Just upload it to their site then choose the resize tab. I can't find my note about the size I chose, but you can try out several sizes. I wish I could figure out how some beauties have thier header QUITE large....I couldn't get mine to center if I tried that.

Gosh that was one long rambling message, but hopefully it will help?

Thanks so much for your visit and for your kind words.

Oh good- so glad the yellow came out of those pillowcases!! They will probably be flying out the door of your shop- I can never keep pretty cases in my show- which is a good thing!

Hi Sally! Rambling is good here in blogland :) What a wonderful idea to display your big wasp's nest!!! I think things like that are beautiful ~ Thank you so much for stopping by Sally, have a great weekend ~ xxoo, Dawn

Hi Sally,
thank you for visiting my blog.
Wow, you do have a great talent in painting roses. I tried my hand at that but besides painting prim things, roses are not within my reach. I feel much more at ease with cold porcelain!
Love your blog and will be visiting often. Will add it to my fav blogs list and will be glad if you'll consider mine as worth being added to your list.

Hi Sally,
my first attempt to send you a comments was not successful (mysteries of technology). Thank you for visiting my blog. Wow, are you talented as a painter!!!
I love roses and a couple of years ago did try my hand at painting (tole painting/Bauernmalerei) but the result was quite poor. Enjoy making cold porcelain (corn starch dough)roses instead.
I'll be visiting your blog often and have added it to my fav blogs list. I'll be delighted if you will deem my blog worth being listed in yours.

Thanks so much for your kind words, Sally. Especially about Max. I miss him so much. We had him for 14 years and he was my first baby. I know he is better off because he had gotten so bad that he could barely walk. That was hard to watch. I'm sorry for your loss also. He looks so sweet in that picture.

Great job on your painting. You do a great job!

Enjoy your day.
