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.
