One Talented Artist!

This woman/artist/friend has been a part of my life for over 20 years.  Through thick and thin of life's up's and down's our friendship has endured.  We have an endless amount of things in common;  Our oldest daughters, now 27 years old, grew up together and they both shared a great love of their horses and showing them competitively.  Our son's, both 24 now, started preschool together at the age of 3 and  found that a mutual love of John Wayne movies was enough to build a friendship on at any age.  We both are obsessed about animals and nature.  Antiques are a huge love for the both of us.  Interior decorating is a large part of our lives.  And creating is a passion that we spend a multitude of hours talking about and comparing notes on. This friend's name is Amy Amthor, and recently she opened up her own Etsy shop called AKA Decorative Art.  This shop showcases her talent for painting and creating one of a kind pieces that reflect her respect of nature. She sells both original works and prints from her originals and will have more to share in the upcoming weeks. I am thrilled about her endeavor, and wish her many years of success and enjoyment in getting to know other online artists as I have, and also wish her many sales from customers who are  in awe of her talent as much as I am!  Here are a few of my favorite things in her shop.  Please visit to find your own favorites~!~

~*~Ghosts and Goblins~*~

Halloween is my favorite time to decorate.  It's never too early in my opinion.  And in our household, traditionally the night we carve pumpkins, is the fist time we listen  to Chrismtas music.  How crazy is that!?! But that won't be for a few weeks. For now I am just enjoying some of my new and vintage Halloween pieces.
