A Few Things I've Painted in the Toile Room

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my blog this week. I hope your week is going well.
I had company from MI over the weekend and had a wonderful time with my niece, Jenni.

I wanted to share a few more things in the blue and yellow guest room, that was in my previous post.

Some of them I painted many years ago while living in MI. They all had some blue or yellow in them and have been "living" in this room ever since. A little round birdhouse that was fun to paint and looks springy with flowers growing at the base.
The young girl on a farm feeding her flock in the fields.
You can see the bird house on the little table by the chair and the heart shaped plaque on the wall with the girl.

I also painted this wooden box that has children on the doors showing the little boy with a knee injury. They have a first aid book and bandages to dress the wound and put one on the little bear, too. The doors open and--yes I have band-aids in there. (smile)
You can see it on the wall behind the door.

This is a favorite piece of mine. It's a round box on a stand that has a lower shelf to it. It's children, again, reading their books with their backs propped up to each other, looking so content. Ceekay always has her eye on this and says it's one of her favorites. It sets next to the bed and mirror. I hope you enjoyed your tour. Thanks for stopping by.
Have a good week!

I love seeing more details up close! You are really good! I used to do decorative painting, I hope to do it again someday!

I simply love all the different details you have incorporated in your guestroom! I am serious -- I would love to spend a night in that guest room! :) Have you ever considered doing a bed and breakfast - I'd bet you can come up with some stunning rooms for your guests!

Have a great weekend.

The painting of the young girl on a farm feeding her flock is my favorite. Beautiful work!
