I found the primitive folk art painting
flea market in Connecticut
when I lived there.
It says "for my beloved wife" on the back :):)
More of that corner by my desk full of inspiration!
The cottage was painted this sunny yellow color

Some of the

Groovy yellow boots.
Some of you saw my mermaid dolls and asked to purchase them

Here are a few!
I have 6 in all, and I will post the others this weekend.
