But I love the colors

I immediately loved the painting. I think it IS the colors that grab one before the claws. Just linked back to your barn post and OH ME GOODNESS how lucky are you!!! My vote is on your cottage; hubby loses. Sorry Mr. Lime in the Coconut. **kisskiss** Deb

You found a painting at the Habitat Store!!! I love it! I would have snatched that right up too!

I LOVE the painting!! The colors are fabulous and it will look great with your other art! I bet it will look great anywhere you put it. My Habitat doesn't have stuff like that but I don't go that often either. What happened about that huge painting you got at Shop Goodwill months ago?

Anonsusan...that big huge oil is SO hideous I need to just paint over it. I need to have it stretched on wood...then need to paint away!

Mona...Welcome!!

simpledaisy said...

The marauding lobsters are so cute!!!
I am heading over there right now to check out their candles!! I L.O.V.E. candles!!!!

Rhonda Roo said...

Hook line & sinker! I'm in for Rock Lobstas! I knew i liked eating them but gazing upon them is also quite delicious (with oil no butter).

And only 20 clams? Hmm I am hungry now...

Cannot wait to see the Lime & Coconut magic that enchants the barn!

XOXOXOX

Pat said...

Jane Coslick said...

Oh yes it is perfect!!! The colors work well with your garden and guest cottage. I have FREE window 6 over 6 true divivded light ( not worry about wood "wood is wonderful" and old wooden windows are the best..everything else looks to new. ....How far are you from tybee island Ga.

Ready for a new adventure.

Oh, I'm so excited to hear that you're anticipating a barn redo! A piece of art is the perfect place to start...I'm so lucky to have seen the "before" in reality so it will be super fun for me to watch the renno unfold. :)
