Good morning everyone

There is a definite chill in the air this morning, a lot colder than yesterday. My cup of hot coffee feels good this morning warming my hands. Looks like cold weather for the next few days and then maybe a warming trend again.

I've been painting quite a bit this week and wanted to show you what I've been working on. I finished my birdhouse and it's now hanging in the tree outback. I added jasmine vine to give it some interest and a rustic look.

I've also been painting some "open" signs for Galen. He puts them on a pole and adds a whirligig making it stand about waist high, self standing in concrete. He's making these for some of the downtown shops for out front on the sidewalks.

We got a special order for a whirligig for Christmas. This will be a jackrabbit and ham radio theme. The request is for a father-in-law that did short wave radio years ago and his "handle" was jackrabbit. This will be a Christmas gift for him. Here is the jackrabbit so far...Galen carved it out of wood and I painted it.

It will be very similar to the fox and the lazy dog when it's finished.

Pick a theme and Galen will figure out how to do it!

Colorful and unique, one-of-a-kind heirlooms!

If you are interested in one for the holidays, it's not too late to get your order in. We have a few listed in our shop right now.

Enjoy your weekend!

My coffee got cold quick this morning. I should turn up the heat. I love your whirligigs!

Those are adorable, Donna. I especially like that jackrabbit. You two are so talented, and compliment each other to a T! :D One of the (many) things that I so enjoy about your blog is when you post photographs of your mug of coffee. I have a thing for mugs and your pictures never fail to bring a smile to my face. Hugs.
