Thank you and a quick refresh

Thank you to all of you that left your condolences on the passing of my sister. Some of you have shared the heartbreak of losing your own loved ones and I am grateful for all of you.

The service was beautiful, just like she was. Remembering her bright smile is helping me get through the hours and days.

Newt In order to get my mind off of my heart breaking sadness, I had to do something. I decided to brighten up the canvas pictures in my dining room with some water colour paint. I bought these at a thrift store ages ago for 4 dollars each. I think they are from Ikea and they carried them a few years ago.

for the lily I added a little green and some yellow around the stamen (I don’t even know if that’s what it is called, lol)


  The daffodil needed some yellow and I made the tulip pink, because I love pink tulips.

It didn’t cost a dime and I really needed some subtle colour in my dining room.


  1. your sister certainly was beautiful. and the pictures looks so pretty- you did a fabulous job. thinking of you.

  2. Beautiful job, Mel. You're in my thoughts...


  3. Oh Mel, I'm so sorry to hear about your sister :-( Losing someone you love is always so difficult, but I think it's even harder when it happens out of the blue like that. I hope you're doing OK - be sure to take care of yourself.

    I love the touch of colour you added to your canvases. My favourite is the pink tulip.

  4. very pretty :) all of it <3

  5. Those came out great Mel. Your sister was beautiful for sure..what a smile. Again, I am so sorry for your loss and at a loss for words myself.

  6. What a beautiful smile ;)
