Simply Stated

Look what I won from a giveaway Rebecca had over at Simply Stated. This gorgeous pair of pineapple finials! Rebecca runs an antique shop in Campbell, New York, is an amazing photographer, AND she makes cakes too! It's no wonder I always enjoy my visits over there.




Here's a close up to show the richness of color on these beauties.   Thank you so much Rebecca, they are simply beautiful! 





Speaking of color, here's my most recent painting I did in my Adult Finger Painting class.  



I call it "Chinese Lantern Plant In Vase".  At least that is what it was SUPPOSED to be anyway!

Hi Lili, Your finger painting is amazing . . I think you are a real artist, doesn't really suprise me, there's definitely an "artistic" side to you with all your beautiful creations you have made. Are you going to be selling any of your paintings . . Sandy:O)

Lucky you - wonderful finials.

And great painting - you've really got the look down for Chinese Lanterns - that is what I thought when I first saw the painting.
