  11. Hi Tammie,
    Ah, great news about your son's wedding!
    They make such a cute couple. Congratulations to you all.

    It is lovely to be back blogging again and to see you still here. I have been away far to long and have missed my blog friends.

    Your giveaway package is wonderful.
    All the best to you,
    Jo xx

  12. Tammie Lee! THE BRIDE IS WEARING COWBOY BOOTS! I love that look, and her dress is just lovely! If we did it all over again, I would wear sparkling boots with my dress! teehehe

    Your work is exceptional. I tried making a watercolour yesterday of a mermaid for a friend - TRASH MATERIAL! Oh dear, I cannot watercolour. Today I will try once again but something simple, like a beach scene!

    Thank you dear one for coming to visit; my birthday was special, indeed. Anita

  13. Love that painting! She has such a sweet expression on her face! Congrats to the happy couple! They look lovely together!

  14. Welcome home Tammie and big congrats to your son!xx

  15. Weddings are such a joy! Congratulation to all of you and best wishes to your son and his lovely bride.

    Glad you had a great time along the West Coast. Hopefully the snow will melt soon and you'll be able to enjoy the beauties of spring right at home!

  16. Congrats on the wedding, such a big moment in his life and your own.

    So happy to see your paintings.
