So Many Holes!
Here is a picture of them ready for paint and/or varnish. The walnut I partially made in Pa's shop when I was at home, from some scraps he had in the attic...then finished them here at home. This week is painting~ and I have some really fun frames to paint~ all sorts of different flowers...monograms...some 'surprise' monograms...as in whoever doesnt exactly know what theirs will look like ( I love those!) ...and golly I even get to paint pirate ships and skeletons! By the way, a clue may be there too for my next thread palette....

Painted Slate Frames And A Recipe...
For those of you who are thinking of giving, or getting a frame for Christmas, I would say you should order by October to be sure to get a place in line that will have your frame finished and thru the post ready in time for Christmas giving. I usually get rather busy dollys wise during this time as well. I have never yet not finished an order on time, but I do only have two hands and can only work so quickly!
Mom sent this home with me~ a watercolour she painted in 1975~
Its a recipe~ my new favorite actually, and its going to get framed and put up on the wall....
1 grassy field
2 small dogs
1 new kitten
1/2 doz children
A pinch of brook
Mix the children and the dogs and kitten well together and put them in a field, stirring constantly.
Pour the brook over the pebbles. Sprinkle the field with flowers. Spread over all a deep blue sky. Bake in a hot sun. When brown remove and set away to cool in a bathtub. "
