Accidentally Artistic

So we started out our Friday morning at Tuesday morning...hahahahahaha! The girls at SSS message board are always picking up wonderful things at this store. I walked out with an adorable Halloween Annalee piece {2 mice carrying a candy corn}.

Then we headed to Somewhere In Time used book store where I hit the hardback jackpot! I walked out with 5 Nicholas Sparks books {A Bend In The Road (signed copy), The Wedding, The Guardian, The Rescue, and A Walk To Remember}. I only need The Notebook to complete my collection of his books. I also got The Mitford Snowmen, A Common Life, A New Song, and Jeremy The Tale of an Honest Bunny by Jan Karon. I only need At Home In Mitford to complete that collection. The last item I picked up was Swapping Lives by Jane Green. Lil Sis suggested it. Unfortunately I didn't find any Sophie Kinsella or Debbie Macomber.
After lunch at The Baker's Square {An Amish restaurant} we headed over to the Accidental Artist. Mom painted an owl magnet, a tiny frog, and a handle for a cheese spreader.

Lil Sis painted a dog bone canister.

I painted a bowl for Lee DeWyze the Cat and a cheese spreader. We pick them up on Tuesday...I will post a pic of the final pieces. This is so much fun and you should definitely try it if you have a shop available!
We ended the day with a pizza party at home.
Tomorrow....we hit the OUTLET MALL! Cha-ching!

What a cool artistic adventure! And I've love to visit that little bookstore. I can't wait to see the final products of the pieces you painted.
