Lemons, Strawberries & an award ~

I've been a bad blogger again ~ I know!

I've been busy trying to get everything done that needs to be done before I go to my painting convention next month!

Our Air Museum has a huge auction every summer and for the last three years I've donated
something for them to auction off.

This year, I painted a lemonade set with a pitcher and 8 glasses set in this tray with lemons painted on it as well.

I also donated this lazy susan that I painted with strawberries and blossoms.

Hope they fetch some good money for the museum! I'll be coming home from my painting convention the day of the auction so I can't go.

My baby came home from 4-H camp yesterday! It sure was 5 long days without his laughter in our house. He has such an energy about it him! We missed him so much and glad he's home.
Well, I'm procrastinating and really do have to get off this computer and get back to my list of things that HAVE to be done! Have a fabulous day.

Hey Sandy, The lemon set just screams to be enjoyed on a hot summer day! Beautiful, as always! Again, I've seen the lazy susan with strawberries in person and the picture doesn't do it justice. It is absolutely GORGEOUS! You are certainly deserving of the award. You have inspired and blessed me from the day we met. Hugs ~ Kim

You KNOW those things will make plenty of money for the museum. I shudder to think what I'd pay for them. lol (Actually, my husband would shudder to think what I would pay - I'd just grin and write the check. ha!).

Have fun at your convention and congratulations on your award! You do so deserve it.
