EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

I PROMISED THEIR MOTHER I WOULDN'T...

I promised the boy's Mother (Roma) that I wouldn't paint their newly renovated room a flourescent lemon grass green like they wanted....I talked them into light sky blue walls with just a brite green and navy stripe around the room...for their soccer theme. ...a house that just finished being renovated for a family of seven. WELL...you won't believe what color I'm now painting my new wall in the new part of the shop!!??.....LEMON GRASS GREEN!!! Also mixing it with some old doors I had....I hope those boys don't come over and see my wall color!!? Here are some pictures of the work we are doing for the Christmas Room, the Fall Room, and a Valentine area. The Americana and Patriotic display is finished and I'm breathing again! I've already had good response to having the Round Top Collection here with Showroom Status...that means a lot of examples to see or buy...and more people through the gallery! Here is some of the Spring stuff that is left and the new 4th of July items in the store...a big celebration in Round Top has inspired many of the pieces for this patriotic season. It has been fun to unpack and arrange and play with....and still a lot more to do to get ready for the Fall collection coming in late July and then Christmas arriving in late Sept....reminds me of when I had the store on the square!! And I have loved having more people through the shop already and we are even going to get together and have a sitting around and hook rugs day that I will host....should be lots of fun!!! Here are also pictures of my Mother's Day gift I picked and Dick paid the balance on....my painting from Mystele, called "BE STILL"....I love this painting and what it represents for me....and I showed it to Pilar who is my little artist....and she just touched it and ran her hands over it and then we talked about what "Being Still" might mean and then she got her markers and paper and did five pictures without stopping except to contemplate....I loved watching her and am learning by watching her express her thinking....I love all her colors and her drawing of the scene....she was in the process of making decisions...her own....something you have to do in doing art...making decisions....she has begun to fill in the whole page now after really looking at and touching Mystele's painting! Thanks Mystele!! I hope your Mother's Day was as special! Blessings!!

Wow, Sherry, you've been busy ~ All those lovely goodies in one place...!
Pilar is such a cutie; if I were visiting, I would have to spend time with her, just making art.
Her drawings are so fresh and colorful.
Isn't Mystele so talented?

Thank you for an enjoyable visit, Pilar is a wonderful artisit, charming people in her work and a good imagination, Plus a full page of great colors. Also a very pretty girl. I haven't visited Mystele for a while and find her work most inspiring also.

Many pretty things to see here today.

Your shop looks so interesting. Those lime green walls show the art really well. Love Pilar's art. Wouldn't her drawings make darling note cards?
