New Things For Me

For a change, I painted something for myself. We desperately needed a new mailbox and I thought this would be a good time to make one because we are moving in a couple of weeks so, new house, new mailbox.

I have a plaque that I made some time ago for my front door that I painted with Hydrangeas, one of my favorite flowers. I decided the mailbox should matche the plaque so I did the same flowers but added my Little Spring Bluebird I've been painting on pins as I thought it would go nicely. I also have a planter that has been painted with Hydrangeas so I think the 3 items on my front porch , will look very beautiful.
