Friday and I'm off!

First thanks for all the lovely comments yesterday on my Sarge memories.  And next I told you I'd show you some of the art in the apartment now.  

These are the frames that had the oriental prints in them that I didn't like so they changed them to these florals which I love.  They are prints.

I found this years ago in the Goodwill store.  It's not a good quality but I still love it.

This is another Goodwill find some years back, it IS an original oil painting.  I think I may have paid three dollars for it.  Already framed.

And this is another one I had, a print but I love it too.  The apartment is nearly done now, just a few more fabric things I ordered and will take about two weeks.  I'll show you when they come.

Last night I helped Carole with another jewelry show.  I had a really good time and it was in a beautiful penthouse apartment is a really nice building with breathtaking views.  The owner is a decorator and an artist and gosh was it beautiful.   Funny thing though,  as the guest came in I knew about half of them already.  It was a great time for me and I think everyone else too.

And then last night we had a huge storm.  Then it passed and we sure did need the rain so it's fine.

Have a great Friday y'all.  I sure will too.


  1. Lovely art work.
    But what is the most important is that you love it and enjoy looking at it.
    Have a lovely Friday

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I haven't watched a good thunderstorm in ages. It just doesn't storm up here. I've only heard thunder twice (as in two claps) since we've been here.

    I like your Goodwill paintings!

  3. Always nice to have some pretty art surrounding you. I loved your post about Sarge, you must still miss him so.

    Have a lovely weekend, hope you get some swimming done.

  4. 3 bucks for an oil! Score! Do you think you'll ever do any more of your own paintings?

    I have nearly nothing on my walls at the moment. I want to repaint and hang some of my own photos. That's on my summer agenda, with any luck.

    Have a lovely day off! big hugs xoxo

  5. Buongiorno!

    The walls are decorated harmoniously and also the paintings are well adapted to the colors chosen, and the subjects are joyous!
    I wish you a great Friday off!

    Big hugs!

  6. I like your artwork. The new orchid prints are lovely but so are your "finds". Glad the storm is over, now enjoy the day!

  7. I love your artwork and also the fact that you are doing the jewelry shows. Have a great weekend. Hope the sun comes out. I was awoken last night by the loudest pounding rain ever!

  8. I bet watching a storm in your home is very beautiful.
    Your artwork is just delightful.
    Love florals.

  9. I love all your art. Very pretty indeed.

    We had a thunderstorm last Sunday evening. It was a loud one too with lots of pouring rain. Fun to watch if you're indoors. We were.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from warm and sunny California. ☺

  10. These are all very nice. They would make me happy, too. I know they look lovely on your walls. Carry on.

    Big hugs, honey...

  11. Love your pictures and your post yesterday about Sarge. I hope you get to swim some this weekend.

    Big Hugs,
