Pumpkin and Football Painting on a Beautiful Day Off from School!

What a fun day!  It was a no school day for our Catholic kids and a few of them came to Queenie's to paint pumpkins and footballs. 

 We had a great time and some of the kids painted both sides of their door hangers with fall/Halloween themes or College/NFL teams.  I forgot to take the picture of the back of their masterpieces.

The morning group was large and boisterous!   That's always a good stimulant!  The afternoon group was a little less loud with these two precious sisters...and we remembered to take pictures of both sides of their pumpkins!

Doesn't it just make you want to go out and buy a bag of candy corn and dive right in?  Happy Fall!

Lovely Note Cards

One of the items I sell in my Etsy Shop are these charming and well priced note cards of your favorite home.  I recently received this order from an historic home in California called "Woodleigh." Below is the picture furnished by the owner and isn't it grand with the creamy white paint, Ionic columns and classic leaded glass sidelights and palladium window over the front door.  I want to be dressed up and walk through that front door for a wonderful evening sipping on champagne and chatting with friends!


I offered three versions to the owner before cleaning them up and printing onto heavy card in pen and ink with my personal handwriting, 

and the other with a little color...the windows on the left side are yellow is from the warm lighting in the picture that I fell in love with, and the right side is gray tint.  I also added some color to the bushes and bedding plants.  All of these options are available through my shop.

They make excellent gifts and perfect Christmas items!  Place your order soon!

New Items Are Being Added to My Etsy Shop!

Now that life has quieted down a bit from summer craft camps and getting back into a regular routine, I am starting to design again for my shop and thought I would share...

Below is my vibrant fall paisley cross which can be painted in a range of autumnal colors to compliment your door...

and though this may seem out of season, I painted this precious thing for my new niece's nursery room with a lamb theme...

so sweet!  I am getting ready for the holidays so be sure to check back for more updates to the etsy shop and for upcoming classes!
