Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Fun News!
 If your a fan of the show " Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" then you must have seen last nights Thanksgiving tear-jerker! The Dunn family, the soupers, as they are so well known for. An amazing family with a heart of gold. I was honored and thrilled when the designers of the show asked me for something hand painted to decorate the house as the owner loved shabby chic roses. So I took an antique frame and painted the glass with chalkboard paint, then painted white cabbage roses on the front. They had written, " Welcome Home" to the Dunn family. I loved the pink wall paper they chose, just lovely. Here's a few screen clips of the chalkboard frame. You can go to ABC.com to watch the episode..






Although I am still painting roses, I have been very busy these days with my new photo business. I never thought I would be doing portraiture but it's been one of the most challenging and amazing things I've done in years..I still have so much to learn but I'm having so much fun doing it. I've been looking for unusally backdrops and found the most gorgoues "shower curtain" EVER!  ok, Picture this, a French chair, a vase of fresh roses, and one of my clients in a vintage prom dress with this shower curtain in the background. Love!


Heres another pretty in pink to make any girls heart smile..


Until next time angel friends,
 Keep it sweet!
