Corner Store

This little corner store, once a small neighborhood grocery on St. Simons Island, is now a glass shop. Its very clever name? "Pain in the Glass"! :) The store windows and shelves are full of sparkly stained glass charms and ornaments. It's a fun place to stop and shop (or stop and paint if you are like me).

Summer's End and Two New Grand-babies!

On Labor Day morning, I was out painting the marsh on St. Simons Island; enjoying the last colors of the season and feeling an awesome sense of gratitude. This summer brought me two beautiful, baby grandsons. One in Hawaii and one in New York! That's right, two babies in 29 days, on opposite sides of the country. Grand-boys. Little cousins. Such love.

As my husband so perfectly noted, "this is truly one of the biggest highlights in life!" He is so right. It doesn't get much better! And here they are… Will and Charlie with their parents… we love them all!

William Joseph Bullen IV 
"Will" with Emily and Joey in Hawaii - born July 27.

Charles Rawson Daniel 
"Charlie" with Rawson and Lynda in New York - born August 25.

PS - Is that a little bird family in the painting above? Why, I believe it is! :)
