Did I Mention We Are Having An Art Show?

Did I mention that our own Lauren Dunn was commissioned to paint this gorgeous painting as a gift for  none other than my personal favorite, Luke Bryan? Did I? Probably not since I was sworn to silence but seriously, I'm so glad the silence was broken! Isn't it just beautiful?

Her florals have always stood out to me but these days…it's the cows!
For some reason I am strangely drawn to them.  



 I am loving her cow paintings and seriously, I hope she brings several of them to the show. 
I hope it's not a subliminal message in my mind because of my children and Chickfil-A.
Sure would be a great Chick Fil A painting tho…."Really Kevin?" That is what this painting says to me…but then, I am seriously biased and praying that God 'mooooves' in the life of the CFA people that are making the decisions when it comes to my precious Holly and Brad!


'Moooving' right along…Here is the wonderful ad in the Over The Mountain Journal for our art show this Wednesday! Just take a look at some of the works our artists are bringing with them! I am super excited!

Here is a good sampling of Melissa's work…she is one talented lady! She happens to be incredibly beautiful and sweet as well. I love seeing pictures of her precious little boy, Payne! He is a doll!

And for the first time ever we have the pleasure and joy of having sweet Vicki Denaburg with us! We are so grateful to have such a talented artist in the shop that is also a local artist as well as a friend! Thank you, Vicki for allowing us to carry your fabulous work!
 I just bought two of her pieces to put in my very own home and I love them! 
They literally 'made' the space that I was unhappy with!

And here are just a few more pictures of what Lauren is bringing. I've seen several paintings that she had at a show in Nashville this past weekend and I am drooling! ( Or am I mooing?)


Don't feel bad if you don't get my cow "funnies" right now…to know me is to love me and to love me is to love my children! I just want them home…it's been a long time now and Chick Fil A has moved them around a lot! But you know what, they've done great, we've faired well and the story will always have a happy ending as long as we know that they are right where God wants them to be! God is in complete control!

But just like this precious lab is looking for someone and waiting for someone to come home….So are we! 


And just like "Betsy Sue"….we will continue to "Moooove" right along and enjoy the path that God has planned for us since the beginning! But we sure hope you will join us this Wednesday! You won't be sorry! It will be so much fun…the artists are all giving away a painting in a drawing and you don't even have to be present to win! Oh…and then there is lunch! We always provide good food and promise a great time! 
What more can you ask for?
Hope to see you Wednesday!
