My Funny and Silly Painted Rocks!

Happy Hump Day....

Well I don't know about how the weather is where you live but down here deep in rural Southern is HOT!!! Staying inside and just "puttering" around the house.....I had plans with one of my daughters but those plans fell through, and thought, what can I work on today?

My neighbor and I had recently added a small rock garden in our mutual flower bed. I need to take some pics of that and will later on, but while standing outside this morning and gazing at all the pretty white rocks.....I said to myself...Self.....we have never painted on rocks why don't we give it a try.

So I picked 5 rocks and brought them inside and started, that is of course after I washed them off very well. I wasn't sure what I was going to paint, but they all got painted.....let them set in the hot sun and they dried quickly....sprayed them with some sealant I had on hand, and now I have some funny painted rocks:

Now these are my first ones, and I …

Dreaming of Coffee!!

Happy Monday Everyone....

I had a glorious weekend celebrating my beautiful granddaughter's 3rd birthday! My what a huge time we all had.....and so Blessed that my sweet Daddy....GDaddy for great granddaddy was again able to be with us and witness such a special day.

Over the weekend I also finished another one of my funny whimsical, folksy paintings. I have a friend who still lives down on the coast of South Georgia on one of our beautiful Golden Isles and she loves coffee as much as I do. Every morning she post to my Facebook page a funny coffee picture and I know sometimes my other friends say...what is it with Deborah and her coffee.

Well you see I'm addicted to coffee....plain and I've shared before....I've been clean and sober from my drugs of choice for years...but I do smoke occasionally...yes I know I need to stop...but hey I'm being honest with you my friends.....but don't ever ask me to give up my JAVA. I sometimes lay in bed at night thin…

Girls With Junk in Their Trunk!!

Greetings everyone on this drizzly Wednesday evening,

Wow, I think I have been gone forever....but, took some much needed time off for myself and for family. So, I have not painted anything whimsical, funny, colorful for a while, and thought I would start off with something near and dear to my heart! Well, not really, because my but is a long ways from my, after years of thinking I know I can fit into that white bikini I had the year I graduated from high school, and finally realizing that after 3 children and many moons later, that wasn't going to happen...I embraced my figure.

I've shared Ms. Lucy with you before...she is my alter ego who can get into trouble and I do not have too and "lawd does Ms. Lucy have junk in her trunk"! It is also beach time and although I do not wear a two piece anymore, I love the beach! I can head to St. Simon's Island, which is just a beautiful island on the coast of Georgia, and I get to the causeway that crosses …

Hi, I'm Deborah and I'm a Addict!

Hi Everybody, 

You might think that this post will be about my addiction's to crafts and such things, but, no, this post is truly about addiction. I've had things happen in this past couple months that have knocked me for loops! So, as I've been doing for about 27 years, let me start this meeting as I've done many times:

Hi, I'm Deborah and I'm an addict. 27 years ago after being in a marriage with an abusive spouse, I thought that the only way to handle my black general unhappiness with life was to go to the doctor and get something. So, it was easy the first time to go and get a script for Valium. That made me feel better, but, I' was eating all the day....fueling my depression. Then, I went to the doctor to help me get something to curb my eating. Then before I knew it I was walking around with a purse full of prescriptions from and taking pills 24 hours a day! I didn't think anything was wrong with what I was doing because i…
