Fresh Paint

Having fun with paint and stamps this week. 
 Can you tell I'm still thinking of the seashore? :-) Thank you to everyone for your sweet comments on my last post. I'm sorry if I was whining a bit :-) You're all wonderful!
I'm joining Friday Pretties
hosted by Joyce from I Love Pretty Little Things
I hope you go by and visit :-)
Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

No worries about whining...we all get permission now and then.

Don't get me started...the banks are the same way...they don't really know WHAT they are doing...anyway I love your craftiness today. A good way to get "centered" haha

What a creative way to express your desire for the beach.

And I like your header too.

Hi Marcia,
Ooh, that's cute.
Also, don't worry about whinning a little, we are all entitled to do it every now and then!


Cindy (Letters From Midlife) said...

These are so pretty! I'm in a crafting mood now that the wedding is done so this inspires me.

Colleen said...

These are very pretty!
I read your IRS post. I would have burst into tears too. I mean, for heaven's sake!!

Mimi Sue said...

Makes me homesick for the beach where I grew up. I think I'd be whining if the IRS pulled that on me. So go ahead and whine a little. It'll make you feel better. I had a garlic just like that in my backyard. If you leave it alone it'll have a really pretty purple flower on it soon. Mine died back in the winter and then every spring it'd come back and flower again. We had to pull it up last year and I kind of miss it. Mimi

A wonderful way to relax and unwind from the stresses of life ... creating lovelies. Seashells always speak to summer and the beach is a fabulous place to restore the soul. Best wishes for a great weekend, Tammy

Your shell collection is so cute and such a nice way to display them! It really makes me want to go to the beach! Good thing we're not too far! Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my blog!

Nothing wrong with longing for the beach, sand between my toes would feel great right about now. :-)

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Thank you for playing Friday Pretties! I am putting up a fresh linky today. Stop by and link up if you would like to play again.
I hope that you do! :)

Quiltstory said...

So PRETTY! Really, that has to be my favorite color combonations...and those blues and green specifically. I have Green and/or blue in every room in my house. It's a problem :) Love it, looks soooo cute!

Bringing Pretty Back said...

You had every right to whine! That is ridiculous.

Phivos Nicolaides said...

Very beautiful blog and your creative posts. Gorgeous pictures. Travelling

Wanda said...

A delightful SEA moment.

I went over and visited the "I Love Pretty Little Things" Very nice.

Was so good to get to meet your family in person Sunday. I thought Ryan did a great job preaching. He has such a heart for the Lord and God's Word...a good teacher.

Beverly said...

I love your new creative you are.
That is a cute little pail of seashells.
I dream of seashores too, more often than I admit to Mr. SS.
Stamping sounds like fun. Less messy than brushes too. You are a clever girl.
I read your previous post just to see what you were whining about.
You have every right to whine...scream...cry. It is incredibel that they cannot get there act together, but expect you to keep producing proof.
Hope inspite of it all you are enjoying your summer.

Shelley said...

I love any reminders of the seashore! The buckets and your shells are so pretty!

Bringing Pretty Back said...

I just read your comment you left on my blog and you are SO right! Our Grandmothers had it rough. And as I said ... ashamed of myself for feeling the discontentment.
I loved your comment, thank you.
Have a pretty night.

Elizabeth said...

Oh I love these little buckets - they are so cute! Great way to display your ocean treasures :)
