Thyme to say thanks for a give away I won and my 100th post give away....

I'm so excited to show you my give away winning
from Brenda

I received 2 yes 2 of these wonderful Santa ornies!!!
He is already on my twiggy tree
in the living room
I just put up.
Before Thanksgiving I start placing some of my trees and greens
around the house then
 decorate them after Thanksgiving
So as lonesome as he looks now he will be surrounded by
lots of other HOMEMADE ornies!
I just love them Brenda
Thanks sooo Much!!!!
Speaking of Santa!
You may have noticed I changed my blog over to Xmas!
I just couldn't wait any longer
now that I'm painting for Xmas!

This piece

is a 
Kim Hogue CDA Design
that I painted in a class
a long time ago
It's called
Candy Cane Lane
It has tons of detail

I love Santa's face...
just look at this glistening beard!!!
 the tiny trees on Santa's jacket
his fir trimmed coat
and patch work bottom

Or who can resist this wonderful snowman
look at all those little trees and snowflakes on his scarf!!
his wonderful pine halo and
candy canes
or that yummy carrot nose

I just love the pail with the candy cane handle!
all the snowman ornaments
and the pine Xmas tree.........
all those fine pine needles to paint...LOL!
I did not finish this in the class I took
neither did any one else........!!!!
It sat in my closet for years when finally last year I finished it!!!!
I just LOVE it and will never sell it!!

Last but not least .........
just a reminder about my 100th post give away!
