Birthday Painting & a Window Seat

The thought of me wilding a saw of any type has flipped my husband onto my side. He said he would help me create a window seat/book shelf in our dining area. At first it was a "No". Then an ok when I guess thoughts of me slinging about a saw traveled through his mind. I'm so excited. What a snuggly nook to read and have coffee.. and great for the kids and their friends to eat together on the back side of the table. Hopefully this will happen soon. I can already see it decorated for Christmas. Oh boy... Snow man pillows. And Santas... and a valance to match.... maybe painted on canvas. Thanks to kariandkijsa , I'm in the know on how to do that.

So, here's the birthday painting. I would say I spent a total of five hours on this. I didn't get to do as much as I wanted on it... But the days slip by so fast... and that darn traffic really eats at the time. Oh well. But I still think Grams will like it.
