About Me

My photo
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

A Happy SPRING HARE, Monday, March 9, 2015

Our Wacky Weather continues…just from Wednesday until Saturday, the temperatures bounced from 8 to 61 degrees!  ROFL

This is how it started on Wednesday night...

By Thursday morning, we had about 5 inches of sleet/snow!

Isn’t it strange how we HEAR the same stories over and over our entire life, but then, we are unable to give the details.  It was SOME day in Spring that Mother would tell that Daddy picked buttercups in the snow for her friend’s wedding shower…I JUST know it was late, but have no clue WHEN!  I THINK it was in 1950…that’s all I remember…
Spring 2014
Before our last two snows, the buttercups were a few days from opening!
This was February 14 BEFORE our WINTER MADNESS began...

I remember a HUGE snowfall the first day of Spring in 1996.  It was the ONLY time I ever remember Daddy being snowed in.  It was a tradition to pile into the truck and go to town with each new snowfall!  This time, though, the drifts were so high and there was no getting out…The snow was so heavy that the tractor couldn’t get it moved without weighing the back HEAVILY and Daddy just didn’t want to trudge through all the wet snow to get rolls of hay put on the back.

Daddy and I had laughed at the weather forecasters~~who doesn’t!  It had been POURING RAIN and we thought there was NO WAY that snow would ever stick.  I guess that just proves WHEN you get enough, it will eventually stick!

I was lucky to have a “deal” with my manager at Vanderbilt Bookstore…IF the students in my county didn’t have school, then I didn’t have to go into work…it was an hour away and we are on THE RIDGE, so often the weather is not the same.  I got LAUGHED off the phone when I called and told them that I could NOT get to work because there was not a drop of snow in Nashville…THANK GOODNESS, the news people came out and took pictures for the evening news…it was a weird weather event!

It was funny to be playing outside in the 60 degrees today and to see the patches of snow that still hadn’t melted…

I thought I needed to paint something with COLOR today, so I quickly designed this little bunny and thought I would share him with you all…

 Click on your mouse to save the picture to your computer.  The ONLY thing I ask is that you give ME credit for MY design if you post it anywhere…paint it...stitch it…use it in mixed media…it doesn’t matter, just do NOT claim it as YOUR own pattern…I am happy to share…I painted this on an 8x10 burlap canvas and the design is approximately 6.5 x 9…Feel free to resize it as you wish.

PLEASE give CREDIT to ROMA LAND WOODCRAFTS when posting or sharing
I ALWAYS use DecoArt Americana Paints to complete my projects...so many COLORS and GREAT Coverage...

I need to HOP along and get on to other stuff…I hope that you have the most AMAZING week and that it will be FILLED with times to remember…Blessings to YOU…~charlotte♥
