2008 Year in Review!! Some of my hand painted decor past and present


Just some of my hand painted items ,some are sold and others are available here on my website. I will be listing new items frequently. Thanks for visiting!!!!!!


It has been a great year for me at shabby cottage designs. When i started on this journey i had no clue what i was doing but i had a deep love of art and decorating and a desire to get things done. If nothing else i had determination and drive along with a loving and supportive husband that puts up with what i love to do. This is no easy job by any means. I am often out hunting for just the perfect piece to paint in places you would not believe. My house can look at times like a bomb exploded in it from all the painting , sanding and everything else that goes along with it. It has been a little over a year now since i got my website up and running and i have meet so many wonderful ladies and made friends along the way and i treasure their friendship. I am looking forward to 2009 and continuing to do what is truly a labor of love for me. May God bless you all and i hope the new year brings you health, happiness and prosperity. Be sure and visit Cindy at My Romantic Home and all the other participants in the 2008 year in review. Thanks Cindy for a great idea and sharing it with us.

You do a marvelous job painting roses-I wish I could paint roses. Roses are my weakness and have them all over my home. Your funny about mentioning your home looking like a bomb went off sometimes. My home can look like that too when I get an idea on how I want something to look different. Have a Happy New Years..

Lisa said...

Hi Suzanne :)

I just started painting things and even with the small amount of supplies I have it's awful to keep organized. I need to work on that this year.

I loved your last post about New Years resolutions! I couldn't agree more and I would have loved to have a grandma that would make fried chicken for breakfast... yum! is right ;)

Happy New Year!
