These lovely ladies were going out to a Masquerade Party, and I was invited to come and paint their faces. I have done some face painting, for a family reunion and a penny carnival, but I had never been able to do really beautiful Face Painting before.
The girls had their makeup done, and some had their glamorous fake eyelashes on, and then I added my touch.
So glad they let me come out to play.
One Scary Boy and a couple of Beautiful Butterflies.

Our Sunroom, my favorite room in the house. The collection on the wall
includes the xylophone that my father-in-law played with as a child,
my grandmothers' mesh purse that her aunt gave her for a wedding present,
my husbands grandmothers shoe hook, and a wood burning Victorian portrait she made too.
I made the greenman face and I hung the clock on a wrought-iron piece because it looks like wings.... and you know how time flies. I built the willow chair about 4 years ago. The monkey sitting on him is named Bob, and my granddaughter, Addisen, does NOT like him!
Another corner of the sunroom. A chimney cupboard I picked up at an auction,
grandmas' washboard and Auntie Florence's drop-leaf table.
This hangs in our office.
The gate came from Auntie Florence and Uncle Jack's farm.
I found the star at a great booth in the Christmas Preview Show in Lloydminster.
