Show & Tell 3 ~ Tweet!



Sorry I didn't post for Show and Tell Friday last week. I will make up for it by posting two things this week, how's that? The beautiful painting shown here, "Empty Thought Balloon" was painted by my very talented brother-in-law, Nick Supina III. This painting hangs on my gallery wall in my livingroom. The colour of the reproduction here is a little dull compared to the actual painting. I love paintings that feature bright, happy colours!
Since I believe spring has finally sprung around here, I have some birdies for your viewing pleasure today. The silver set on the right are salt and pepper shakers that my mom and dad received as a wedding present in 1948. The fat little birds on the left are a pair of salt and pepper shakers ReUse Centre treasures and the bird house with its attached birds was a gift from one of my nieces.

I love birds, and I LOVE Nick's work. Such a talented family!

Had a great time at Swaparamarama today. And the ART CARS!!!!! Oh my gosh!

Google "the pen guy". Talked to him and saw his amazing car. Took lots of pictures.

(Daniel is getting more and more into this whole art-car thing so we need a really good theme that he can't resist.)
