Thyme to meet Sam

With Memorial Day
just weeks away
I have started to get
some
AMERICANA
painting done
This is a door crown
that I have painted
 It is a design
by
Maxine Thomas


Maxine Thomas
designs
are very detailed
and
challenging

of
flag and face



another close up of
Sam's face



I love the banner
and
the garland with the rusty stars

Happy Painting!

and 
at the end of the day you don't look at it 
and
 wish you had painted something different."

  2. Lynn,
    It is always so much fun to see what you create! I love your background and header! I have a hard enough time keeping up with a post and blog reading, I cannot imagine changing my blog designs...or even begin to know how! haha

    Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment. My hubby and I had a wonderful time up at my dad's (the 26 hour drive to my dad's from our home in Georgia to his home in Wisconsin was well worth it :o) Thank goodness though for the midway stop to sleep and visit with our kids who are all at college in Kentucky :o)

    It was straight back to work for me, so haven't had a minute to catch up really on blogging, but I want to try to reply to the wonderful comments left on my N post.

    Blessings & Aloha!

  3. Love the Uncle Sam, I have one very similar to that hanging in my office at work. I love the Americana Pineapple on the right, where did you find that pattern?

  5. One of these days I'm going to learn how to do these backgrounds! Your Uncle Sam is so detailed - that is true talent. Busy week here in Michigan, getting ready for our Ladie's Nite Out on Friday night. I sewed ALL DAY yesterday and my muscles are telling me about it today! Have a great day, Dawn
