Baby Robin with a new Home!

Finally I got to paint the other nite. I decided to put this cute little robin in a teacup. I just love the old moldings , especially this one with the hook. But one of these days I will take some pictures of the inside out new home. We worked half the day today hanging a few pics. With husband giving his advice..grrr. Do you have trouble with hubbys butting in...all I want him to do is for him to do what I tell him. He finally said you know this is my home too. I said really...Im awful aren't I. Well I always tell him that I am pretty visual and observe the way pictures look..since I am a decorator magazine junkie. The kind that your hubby has to get the hand truck out to move the stack..but I did let alot go when we made the major move last april. So back to the picture hanging...I got all of them up the way I wanted. We have high ceilings...very hard to figure out... But I still have lots of pictures to hang yet..but Im the type to really think about a few at a time as to where they go. Well Ive rambled on enough...So for now I will send this post off to blog land...Until next time Sally

Oh Sally, it's PRECIOUS!!!! Your painting is just beautiful and I love that you painted it on the wonderful old molding too ~ Such a sweet little bird!!! I know what you mean about the hubby wanting to be all decisive about the decorating, hey, it's our job, I just want him to sit down and enjoy what I've done!! Have a great week, xxoo, Dawn

Hi Sally,
This is fabulous!!! Really really lovely. You really have a talent for painting, and what a sweet subject this little bird in the teacup. LOVE it!!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm so flattered that you liked my background and header. There are a couple of ways that you can add your blog name to it. The easiest would be just go back in to where you added it and select bloggers option for "put header behind title", rather than "replace header with title". You are restricted to bloggers fonts though, and there isn't much of a selection. You can also use a program like "Photoshop" or "Paint" if you don't have either of those, you can download one called "Gimp" for free. And then you add your wording that way, and save it all together. I hope this makes sense! I think I may do a tutorial about it on my blog, as your not the only one asking.
