Country Music



What's up with country music?

Mom and I were going through the drive-thru at Chick-fil-A and, having nothing to do, I started paying attention to what was playing on the radio.  It was some a song by Bucky Covington, called I'll Walk, and it's about a girl getting hit by a car!  If that's not depressing I don't know what is.  I mean, there are plenty of country songs that I like, but my goodness!

Things in my Room Thursday #9



My NINTH thing in my room is three little pictures that I painted.





I painted this one when I was eleven, it took quite a bit of time to paint.




This was the second one I painted when I was eleven, it didn't take long at all because it is VERY small .



This one I did when I was twelve, it took a really long time. I think it is my favorite because of all the colors.

They aren't amazing but I like them because I painted them.

Things in my Room Thursday #8

Yeah, I know, ANOTHER body part for Things in my Room. This time it's my hand:




When I was about 4, maybe 5, Christopher and I took an art class. It was very fun, we did stuff with clay, paper mache, plastery stuff (I don't know what it's called). We also either painted or used oil pastels or something like that to make pictures.


We had to make a mold of our (Christopher made one also) hands. It was rather tedious because you couldn't move your hand while making the mold. But, when that was finished, we got to decorate our hands. Now let me explain something to you; Christopher and I each made a paper mache ball and a hand, on each of his: two colors, on each of mine: LOTS of colors and little sequiny, colorful gluey dot stuff. Hmmmmm, we're not that different, right? Oh please, I plan on writing a post on comparing our art.

Well, back to Things in my Room, go join at MSM now.

Things in my Room Thursday #7

Avon sells Cherished Teddies, so sometimes I order them. I don't have very many but I still like them a lot. I have Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, Robin Hood, Maid Marian and a Christmas music box one.



Robin Hood and Maid Marian



Take note of little Toto in Dorothy's basket



Mom ordered this from another Avon representative so that it would be a surprise (for Christmas).

Go to MSM to join the fun!!
