Mama's Paint Brush

You know how a day can start out in one direction and then make a U turn and then go in another direction? That's how it was for me one day when I was doing my normal routine of getting into things - like the clothes basket - looking for treats left in pockets and paper and you know- just stuff that I like to eat. And then getting my naps in, and playing.

But lo and behold, I heard a big comotion going on and mom was calling my name. I went to see what was happening, and she had this huge red tool box out that she was setting up on the table.. She started pulling out this and that- paints and brushes and the next thing I knew, she had me stark naked and put me up on a chair and decided she was going to paint a picture of me!

You know me- I like to keep my clothes on as I am kinda shy and I get cold. But mama had a nice fire going and so she proceeded to paint my picture, as I sat there snorring, These things don't come fast ya know. I was so happy when she was done , so I could get my sweater back on and start my nap!

I guess the inspiration bug got into mama! Last week she painted a flower, and then this artsy painting. I never know what to expect. One day it's the sewing machine- and all my nice sweaters being made- and now the paint has come out.

Inspiration is a good thing- so when it comes- grab it and fly like the wind.

Nitey nite everyone.



This is the tool box with the paints

These are her friends the paint brushes

This is the painting mama did of me.

WOW! You're Mom is great with that paint brush Tweedles & you were a great little model to sit so very still for her. Our DawgMom makes stained glass things, but we can't tell you much about how, she won't let us in the room when she's cutting glass, says it's too dangerous, so we can only sit outside the door & watch her.
Hope you had a good nap after all that working.
