Cyber Sale- Sunday Monday Tuesday -Free Shipping in my Etsy Store!

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! We had 34 people in our home for Thanksgiving - all family, with a friend or two, thrown in. Then we had a SECOND Thanksgiving at my in-laws (because I didn't have enough to eat on Thursday?) and then watched Georgia Tech lose to our rival on Saturday. I am plum tuckered out. I am guessing plenty of you are, as well !  
(my princess is the one in front, if you are wondering)

If you plan to shop in your pj's on Cyber Monday, I am offering FREE SHIPPING in my Etsy store on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (Nov 29-Dec1). 

My Etsy store has been neglected these past few months, however, I recently added several new paintings. Please take a peek! 

The code for Free Shipping is CYBERSHIPPING (all one word). You must enter this code as you check out to get free shipping! 

This special starts NOW and will end on Tuesday evening, so technically, it should be called
Cyber- Sunday/Monday/Tuesday.

Remember to use the promo code CYBERSHIPPING when you check out to get free shipping!

Custom House Ornaments

I painted our home on an ornament. It's not perfect, but I love it. It is difficult to be perfect on a circle with a diameter of 3.25 inches. In addition, the trees are no longer green and my husband took down our upper shutters to paint them. That was back, over a week ago, when we were optimists and thought it might stop raining, one day. (With this constant drizzle in Georgia, we are beginning to think painting might not ever be an option.) 

If you would like a custom house painting ornament, I am charging $45 plus $5 shipping. I will paint both front and back, but need photos. This will be a 3.25" porcelain ornament. Leave me a comment, or email theoldpostroad at gmail dot com, if interested.

Art and October

Its been a great week. I am thankful that October is here. Now, how do we get it to stick around longer than normal?  The hot, humid summer months last f-o-r-e-v-e-r and fall always flies by. 

I like this kitchen, but automatically wonder if the tile would make my knees hurt. Am I getting old? 

I have the same tile in my bathroom and I've never noticed a problem with my knees. Upon second glance, I then think about how much labrador retriever hair would accumulate under those pretty rods at the base of that table. yikes. My sister told me that the Dollar Tree has non-swiffer-brand wipes in packages of 20 for $1. I also found them 2 for $1 in the dollar item clearance section at Rite Aid. But, I don't have that pretty french table to swiffer under, so I just plan to leave the dog hair where it is, for now. (I use the name "swiffer" as a verb.)

I've gotten a lot of painting done these past couple of weeks. 

Some of these are in my Etsy store and some are in Plain Jane Designs in Athens, Georgia. A few others are at Pure Bliss and at Madison Drug Store -both are located in Madison, Georgia. 

I painted a cotton field I found on Pinterest - and Sciways shared it here

Have a great weekend!

Some Recent Paintings

I've created a few new pieces these past few weeks.
A few 6"x6" floral paintings.

And this 10"x10" kumquat bouquet ....

And here is a 10"x10" pumpkin...

These little apples I painted today. It was storming and I felt like I needed to shut down my computer. So I painted apples instead of working!  A friend bought these after I posted them on Instagram....

These pumpkins are also on 6"x6"x7/8" cradled wood panels. ...

And here are a couple more from the past week or so...

And that is my little bit of creating. I've been busy with my other work and have to MAKE time to paint, these days. Maybe it will thunder and lightening again, soon. My dogs are hoping for clear skies - the thunder makes them nervous.

Have a great day!

My Weekend

I had a productive weekend.

I created these mini 6"x6" paintings, plus the 12"x12" abstract piece....
They are all on cradled wood panels (7/8" thick)

And we spent a hot afternoon at Bobby Dodd stadium in Atlanta for Georgia Tech fan day...

The lines were long, but we met so many polite, friendly, nice football players.

And saw our sweet daughter, of course....

Hope you had a great weekend!
