Painting Paradise and COOL POINTS!

Yesterday in paint class we painted a paradise seascape and I so wanted to go to the beach after class!hehehe


Barb won the drawing and got to take home my piece above that I painted with them in class.



I got some cool points yesterday with my boys when I showed them my small collection of 45's. They were really impressed that I had AC/DC Back in Black, Journey, but weren't too impressed that I had Michael Jackson's BAD. My boys have done a 3-60 in the music they listen to. Last year it was all the hip hop, rap stuff that we weren't real fond of and now it's 70's, 80's and 90's ROCK - all because of Rock Band and Guitar Hero. We were walking with our youngest the other day and got the biggest laugh when my husband asked what he was listening to and he said "Iron Maiden" oh my!

Still slowly strolling down memory lane and hope to get more posted this holiday weekend but have LOTS of painting to do and I am going to have a giveaway! I'll post it in the next couple of days - if you like vintage linens you'll want to make sure to come by and visit!

Wow love the beach paintings!! I want to go :) although generally I'm a mountain girl!!

It's so cute that you still have those 45's. I remember that music!! My son is very eclectic (no spelled right), when it comes to music. The majority of the music on his ipod is Christian Rock and contemporary, but he also has show tunes and Thriller ~~ how funny is that!!

Have a GREAT day,
