Monday’s Masterpiece…

Happy Monday and prayer’s and blessings to all impacted by the weather this past Friday. So sad to see all of the destruction and loss of life. It really does put much into perspective, especially at this time of year.

On the lighter side of today, we should all just count our blessings and be grateful for all that we have. On Father’s Day of this year our neighborhood was too hit by a tornado so it reminded me of how fragile life is…

I was just looking on Amazon to get some ideas for my Christmas list. I have to admit, I’m more of a Happy New Year person. I really don’t know why, but I do love the new year. Probably b/c I’m a planner girl and I don’t really get a plan until like now which is a little late. It’s still a great time of year though.

I came across one of the husband’s painting’s that I absolutely love, love, love ❤ , so I thought I would post it for Monday’s Masterpiece…It’s Santa and his Christmas Mouse, Winston..

Basket of Apples

I really don’t even have to say anything about this painting except it is one of my fav’s !!! The Artist painted it for me ( 😉 i.e. the husband ) It’s a cloudy, cold and rainy Monday but I have this beautiful painting to look at…I hope all of you had a great weekend and blessings on your week ❤.

Remember any of the Artist painting’s can be purchased by contacting me or on our website Handmade by Amazon

Two for Tuesday…

Happy Tuesday, blogger’s…It’s always a little harder getting going after a 3 day weekend but I’m up and starting the day. After the 4th a sense of urgency comes on and I feel like, “Summer’s over Mr. Nightlinger 😉 .”

The Artist was busy painting this weekend. I’m really enjoying these past oil paintings. I have already have a spot for them in our home. Don’t worry if you like them, they are on our Amazon Handmade acct. for purchase (at least the pair is) . I still have to load, “Storm Front”.

Also getting busy on my planner/planner area. I’m not even going to post until I’ve got that under control b/c quite frankly it looks like a hot mess…No bother though, I’ll get it together and it will be beautius for sure ❤

Since it’s 2/2 Tuesday I thought I’d put up a couple of songs…The first one always makes me smile because I remember times from years gone by where this song makes me feel this way, only I’m not living in their radio probably just their head 😉 and it’s rent free 😉 …

How do you like me now/Toby Keith ❤

It’s going to be a busy week b/c I only have 4 days to work with…Appts., houseclean, menu plan & groceries, Target run of course, yadayadayadayda…I’ve also got so behind in my, “10 Year Journal” I’m determined to get caught up on it !!! Oh and I’ve got to fit a mani/pedi in there somewhere, ahhhhh 😉 . I know, I’m spoiled. It’s the husband’s fault. He’s a great guy ❤ and I love him to pieces ❤

My second choice for my song today is, “Perfect”. The husband and me always give each other songs and he gave me this one. He said it reminds him of us b/c we were just kids when we met and fell into forever with each other (he was 20 and I was 16 😉 ), 42nd wedding anniversary this year… Together 45 years, OMG ❤ .

“Perfect” Andrea Bocelli & Ed Sheehan

Have a great week and get busy…Summer’s over Mr. Jebediah Nightlinger 😉 …

p.s We use to do Community Theatre every summer and I came across this picture of one of the shows we did…How did you think the kiddos became professional dancer’s, singer’s, musicians ??? It wasn’t by accident, Mom and Dad had a little something to do with it. Uber talented family, started with my mom 😉 and everyone has the DNA…I was a piano player and the husband is the Artist (not his day job, OMG starving artist, I don’t think so 😉 ) …Even though they all took a different direction, they were amazing on stage performing, of course I may be a bit prejudice. 😉 …

Monday’s Masterpiece

Good Monday morning ❤ Hoping everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July…The Artist and me had a wonderful weekend…Road Trip out to our fav places from back in the day 😉

Then on Sunday the 4th was a chill kind of day w/the Artist painting and me planning…Love, love, love to plan. Today will just be a reset kind of day where we keep wondering what day it is 😉 Does that happen to anyone else on these 3 day weekends ???

The other painting he just started yesterday, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a fav of mine !!! Don’t forget you can visit our Handmade by Amazon site and purchase any of his amazing artwork…Just follow the link ❤

The weekend started out really great with me and the granddaughter getting our hair done, Chic Filet for lunch and then of course Starbucks to top off the fun day…

So much fun at the salon…Shout out to our forever beauty stylist…Mz. Lisa ❤ Thank you so much for making us beautiful again ❤ . Oh and I can’t forget the flower’s my wonderful husband bought for me ❤ .

Back to business this week, a lot of irons in the fire. Starting a major remodel on the home but then by the end of this year it will all be done. I will update with pics of our beautius home. Let’s enjoy the rest of the summer. Busy, busy month w/birthday’s, anniversary (42nd ❤ ) and vacation to New Smyrna Beach, Florida Y A Y !!!! Blessings Blogger’s on your Monday ❤ … 😉

Write Anything Wednesday…Elan Creations/Contest Update

Hello Blogger’s…I don’t know where the time goes. I definitely need a plan, schedule, or anything that remotely looks like a, “TO DO/TODAY LIST”. I Think I need to blame it on the hus b/c for Father’s Day I updated him to the 21st century with his little techno gadgets, i.e. a new IPhone 11 and a new Apple Watch. Well OMG what a nightmare, but I digress. We got the new phone activated and now we are working on the watch !!! He really looks very cool with all of the stuff 😉 .

Happy Father’s Day

You definitely deserve it and you wear it well !!! It looks great on you ❤ We love you dad ❤

The number I assign to you, is the number that comes in the order of when you enter. You can enter as many times you want too. The more you enter, the better your chances and it’s free to enter !!!! Then the number you get, is put in the drawing. There is only 1 winner and the winner will receive a print of their choice from our store Handmade by Amazon…

I will film the drawing so you will be able to watch. All you have to do is basically look at all his amazing Artwork and comment on a post that features any of his amazing artwork. I hope you will enter the contest and start your collection of some beautius artwork. It’s really a lot of fun !!!
