Agnes is back for the holiday season! The tree in the background is an original 1965 aluminum tree. I even have the box it came in. The new post card will read," Don't get your tinsel in a tangle. Ace can solve your heating and electrical problems whether you have a little or a latte!"

Have you ever heard of the game, Zim Zam? I don't know how many of these games Mama bought when we were kids. We would play it until the ball came off the rope. It is like tether ball but it is a tennis ball you hit with paddles. Mama and I found it on the web and ordered it. I think Lee and I played it longer than anyone else!

OOOOHHH WEEEEEEE! I feel like Aunt Ruthie on Warm Pie, Happy Home! I added extra meringue on this chocolate pie. Can't wait to dig into this tomorrow!

Can you believe it? This was an old metal army desk! Now it is a fancy desk and Christmas present!

Table Transformation

This table needed a little help. It was found at the old intermediate school where the new House of Hope will be located. Mrs. Park brought it to me and asked me to paint it. Here's the new table:

Getting in the Spirit!

I had so much fun with all these ladies! Doesn't their talent show? Thanks for coming and let's start planning a spring party!

Paint Party:Less than a Week!

Next Friday evening at 6:30, 18 ladies (so far) will be painting away on the above sign! I have 2 spots open if you are interested. I guarantee you will have fun visiting, eating, and of course, painting! There are 8 spots still open for the November 20th party. We will paint the same sign, but if you want to come and paint something on the reverse side, let me know!

I have been working on ornaments lately. Thanks to Karen's mom and Linda I have painted over 30 in the last few weeks. I won't be taking anymore Christmas orders, because I have been so busy trying to finish the orders I have. I appreciate your business!

Meet "Rock"sy!

Jill brought this chair to me a few of weeks ago. Oh my, she needed LOTS of work. First we started with filling in multiple imperfections with putty, then a good exfoliation. Once her foundation was ready, she was primed.

What a difference a good facial can do for you! Just the primer looks good on "Rock"sy!

After a week of paint and detail work, "Rock"sy is ready for Mrs. Yeager! Hopefully, she will bring years of enjoyment to Jill and her students!
