Spring has been a busy time around my home and studio. The giveaway is still going on with entries for any comment you leave on any post. I promise to show pictures soon of the yard redesign. It has been raining here the last few days and I have not been able to take any, but I hope to, when I return from our trip.

In the meantime, I have some new designs for my spoon cottages to share. These designs will be coming soon to my etsy shoppe along with lots of new goodies when I come back.

We are leaving the 1st and hope to get lots of great pics of our travels.

See you soon, and good luck on the giveaway. I will share pictures of the gifts, someone will receive when I return.

Till then, blessings to you always.

Early flower pics of the new yard.

See you soon~
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Oh my, how talented you are. Such a small palette to work with and to do it so beautifully. I wish my hands were so steady as they once were. I used to paint like you and others. I need a much bigger canvas now to hide mistakes. :)

lovely work.

Hello Celeste, I love your spoons:)
I have several pictures with a cottage and pink trees, but no pink cottage. My room is not as organized as yours.Ha:) Your is wonderful!!! Have a safe and fun vacation. Hugs, Mary:)

Celestina Marie said...

Thank you Ladies for your kind comments.
The white flower with the pinkish center is a peony.
The large pink blooms are the hydrangeas and the roses are in pots, which stack on the sides of an arch. I did plant gardenias, but they are not open yet. I hope I can keep these pretties going when we hit the real Texas heat. LOL
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Nice to discover another wonderful blog. Love your painted spoons by the way. They're so sweet - the house, the rose, and the ribbons. I'm no painter so it's nice to see someone who does wonderful in this area. Your angel statuette is adorable too. Hhhmmmm I guess there's just something with angels/cherubim :-)

(Have to say, your studio is so neat and organized!)
