My New Stairway..... I am not the best photographer....but I wanted to get it all in
and there is a wall there. So.....I have been wanting to do this for a
very long time & it finally happened. I stenciled 'But as for me & my
house we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15' up the steps of my
staircase. This staircase is in my kitchen & leads to the bedrooms
upstairs. My kitchen is white. I accent with other colors
and I have a silhouette wall which is perfect with the black & white.
Here....I will show you some of my favorites.

This was one of the first 'intricate' ones that I cut. is
a man cutting a silhouette.....which I found neat. I LOVE the vintage
ledger paper I mounted it on. The old papers took my silhouettes to a new
level. That is one reason I am so grateful for the art community.

So.....having a daughter & a son always makes me want to have boys &
girls together. But I also am not opposed to having 2 girls in a
silhouette. Of course I have nieces & friends. Really.....any silhouette
is game for me.

This is one of my all time favorites. I don't know if you can read the
inscription.....but it says 'Lincoln age 9, May 14, 2006'. My sweet son cut this for
me for Mother's Day. He shot his first turkey that to commemorate the
turkey hunting & Mother's Day....he cut this sweet turkey. I will treasure
this special gift for always. Where ever your artful journey takes you today....I hope
you are blessed. I hope you enjoyed my staircase & some of my
favorite silhouettes.

Your staircase is it! And hwat a vacation you had!!! BTW pavlova may be my all-time favorite dessert...I make a pretty good one myself but I like to do mine w/ cherries.
