Happy Birthday Paint Party Friday!!!

Many thanks to Kristin and Eva for maintaining our gathering spot.
Six years is a L O N G time to keep something like this running
I appreciate you and I am sure we all dol

This background was created a couple of years ago on, of course, March 17.
I never liked it so when scrounging around for something to work on,
I pulled it out and added some daisies.  

Lucky daisies?
I think it is headed back under the bed.

Another background on yupo.
Spring has sprung in Florida and I am busy unpotting, dividing and repotting orchids.
It is a mess and I am a mess and the lanai is a mess
All of which makes DH very cranky.
I love it.  I love seeing the plants upside down,   I love having plants to give away.
And I love to see how the plants respond to repotting.  It is like I give them new energy to bloom.

Wishing all a celebratory Happy Paint Party Friday!


  1. Sounds like a busy season with your orchids. Both your paintings are great, but the second one is my fave with the lovely colours. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  2. The daisies were a great addition, they add cheer.

  3. These are both wonderful.
    Your backgrounds are beautiful by themselves and I wouldn't hide the shamrocks and daisies back under the's so pretty~

    Happy PPF

  4. I like the daisies! Oh yes, the re-potting! lol lots of work but so much fun when you are done. I do not have much around this new place yet, but hopefully I will get more plants soon ♥

  5. I think both pieces are great. Your daisies are so creative, and your background is perfect just as it is.

  6. fun addition to the clovers adding the daisies.Love the yupo page. One of these days I am going to get some yupo to play with as if I don't have enough other things to keep me going:):) Happy PPF!

  7. Hi Susan, I love those bright happy daisies with their clover background!
    A very colourful yupo - exciting!
    It's always a messy business potting up - I agree, great when its all done though ;D) Cheers and Happy PPF!

  8. Great background page love the cloudy colour!!

    Hugs Giggles

  9. Susan these are wonderful Full of spring time energy.

  10. I like the background without the daisies too. But the addition of the daisies is cute, and they don't deserve to be under the bed I think ... :-)


I love hearing from you! Have a wonderful day and come back soon.
