Summer Celebration and PPF #20 check in!

Tomorrow is Great Hammock Beach Summer Celebration! Approximately 200 folks and 27 children. I painted the below sign from a Great Hammock Beach piece of driftwood. It will be one of the Tea Cup Auction items.

It's all about the children ... we have a bunch of activities planned. Here is that piece of plywood Rog picked up for me. A photo opportunity that doubles as a bean bag toss board. The kids can peer through the holes Rog cut out and be a mermaid or a fish or a worm (cutest darn worm ever) or a crab! Or they can toss crabby bean bags into the holes and win prizes. Kids will not be peering out of the holes while bean bags are being tossed!!!

Mermaid with treasure chest, fish and Bella!

Mermaid tail ... LOVE her tail!

Fishes and worm on a hook!

Lobbie and crab up above!


and visit all the incredible artists at Paint Part Friday!

No paint brush today ... but Saturday I'm starting a project that needs to be finished quick (Rog picked up a piece of plywood for me last night) ... why do I do this to myself and wait 'til the last minute? ... but, I WILL be painting all day ... so YAY!

PPF #18 ... Garden Party

... painted these tiles 19 years ago for a 'Garden Party' birthday theme. They had been exposed to the New England elements in an herb garden all this time and held up real well! I was surprised that they needed only minimal touch ups ... back to the garden they go! My work is guaranteed for my life :)
Happy PPF too!
... head on over to Paint Party Friday for links to some incredible work!
