I've been trying to teach myself Paint Shop Pro. It's a photo editing program plus you can do many other things with it. I'm trying to learn to do backgrounds for my website and blogger. I keep thinking it can't be that hard to learn but it is! So I did this tutorial taking two picture and putting an object from one on the other and this is how it turned out.
That's my grandson Nathan (isn't he just the cutest little thing with that red hair!) and I put that chicken it his picture. Worked out kinda neat..so if you ever need a chicken but in one of your pictures just send it to me hopefully I'll be able to follow the directions again! Have a great day.

Almost everything on display was bought at a garage sale, estate sale or thrift store. The three candle holders came from a thrift shop and the sea shells from a estate sale. There must be 30 pounds of seashells and I only paid $5. You have seen that teapot on another post it's by Sadler.
Yes I do love flowers especially hand painted roses.
Love the look of candles but don't burn them often both my husband and I have allergies and the smell of candles bothers us. Just picked up that old clock face last weekend at a sale.
So give me some ideas what else I can do to make my mantle look more finished.

Today's the day I'll show you some of the Pink in my diningroom. This pink and red rose oil painting came from an estate sale (my favorite way to shop). Usually I go to an estate sale in the afternoon when everything is half price then I'm not tempted to spend too much $$. As soon as I got there this painting was mine...then I found
This china with roses on it, a service for 12 with all the serving pieces WOW was I excited and half price just a great buy. The china was made in Germany by Edelstein also has Bavaria, Maria-Theresia and the pattern is Moss Rose. Of course some pieces are missing and there are some chips but I feel very lucky to have found this set.
