Christmas & Gail

I wanted to post about two "Net" buddies, Melinda
and Gail.

Melinda had her home in "Country Home Ideas" around Christmas last year. She has the most divine home with tons of original, vintage roses paintings. In fact, I bought the magazine, tore out all the pictures of her house and put them in my scrapbook without realizing it was Mel's place!

Somehow I haven't saved most of the pictures she sent to me so I have asked her to resend them so I can show her gorgeous home in my next post.
For now I have a couple of pictures of her Christmas table last year.
Mel has even more Christmas trees than me, she is a kindred, crazy Christmas person LOL!

Gail is an absolute darling and one of the most talented, creative people I know. I would love to buy one of everything she has and fill my walls up from floor to ceiling with rose paintings. I don't think hubs would be too thrilled!
I bought this off Gail last night. It is a print of one of her paintings which is on a cupboard door. Jon was fuming when I bought it but as he had just bought an electric guitar he had NO SAY!!!

Jon did actually like this one, although he hates to admit it. He thought it was a very cool idea having a painting on a cupboard door.
Go to Gail's website here to see all her artwork.

  2. Thanks Peta for the kind words you wrote about me in your post, perked me up no end! Melinda's home is gorgeous, when the magazine article came out we were on holidays not far from where she lived, I've still got the mag if she has any problems emailing you scans, just yell
