I've begun a series of Cardinals. I love watching them on the feeder and they speak of Christmas and winter to me. Cardinal no.2, oil on 6"x6" canvas. Click here to buy.
My sister and I traveled to DOGTOWN, AL (really, there is a place named Dogtown) today for a visit to Akins Furniture. It's a HUGE furniture store in a series of rambling, connected buildings in the middle of nowhere known for their great prices. We traveled about an hour and a half from Birmingham and it was well worth the trip. Here is the dining furniture I bought. I got the table and six chairs for what I would have paid for just the chairs. Score! Can't wait to have it in my dining room.
