#Happy Cow# Wall Decor-Etsy Collector Featured for Christmas! and 'New' Original Painting by Jemmas Gems

One of my Etsy Collectors Jonee S. just sent me her lovely picture of  my 'Happy Cow' that she framed so beautifully just in time for Christmas!  
This is the largest I've ever printed
 her 24 x 36 on a matte watercolor paper, which was a great call by Jonee as she wanted a 'life size' look with a more subdued finish! Bravo Jonee and Thanks for sharing!
Also,.........a 'New' original acrylic painting of my 'American Gold Finch'
a beauty of a bird and all ready to fly to a Collector's home for the holidays!

Wall Decor -Smart, Easy, Affordable by 'My Collectors' on Etsy

I love it when my 'Collectors' on Etsy send me their photos of how they
framed my Prints!   This is from B.J., a very clever and creative decorator and Blogger;
B.J.'s pics  and story show how she framed my 12 x 16"  'Cow Girl' print.
This is B.J.s finished framing project (above) - and it looks so lovely in her living room.  Read about her journey to find the right frame............
"The very first store I went in...
                                                 had the PERFECT ONE..
How much more perfect than white with
black "spots"..
ok, I know they aren't
COW SPOTS...but close...

The problem...it was $60...but I knew those frames would go on sale for half price the very next week...and I knew I could wait for that sale..
$30 sounded MUCH better. 
I put a black mat and that amazing frame around
this sassy, cute little girl cow and
fell totally in love forever......
I TOLD her I loved her....."
Thank you B.J. for sharing!!! B.J.'s Blog Click Here 

 It's a great idea to always check your local Art & Craft & Frame shops.   Many of them like Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Aaron Brothers etc. have frames and mats pre-cut and
all ready to go and when you buy one you can often get the 2nd at a discounted price, sometimes for just 1penny!   Or wait for the great sales like B.J. did.   Enjoy!

Summer Blueberries - My Favorite! & a Purple Tongue!

We've been waiting all year for our 'FAVORITE' time of the year....
Blueberry season!   It started up right after the 4th of July here on the Southern Oregon Coast.
And we've been picking ever since.
Feast your eyes on these beauties!
And they are as BIG as grapes and oh so delicious!
We picked these at Valentine's Farm in Langlois, OR. ♥
Their season has finished already, so on to other Blueberry farms up and down the coast.
With the size of those Blueberries it was easy picking too!
Gotta fill that freezer up!
So when I'm not painting at my easel......you know where I am!
Enjoy your summer!

Wall Decor Ideas for your Home! Jemma's Collectors!

Here are some creative ideas for framing your Giclee prints!   These are photos from one of my collectors on Etsy.   It is so much fun to see how people frame and decorate with my art prints. 

These photos are courtesy of Barbara C. from MN.

I love to see how Barbara decorated with my 'Cow Girl' in her home, all warm & cozy,
and so bright and cheery!
This one is waiting to be framed.  I love the colorful quilt Barbara crocheted.  We'll wait and see how she finishes this 'Cow with Polka Dots'.   Wonderful photos Barbara! Thank you so much!

"COW APPRECIATION DAY"! July 15th 2014

What a great day to start up my blog....and update a little.   What day is it you might ask?
It's "COW APPRECIATION DAY".     And being that I love our bovine beauties and all that they do for us......I am very thankful for our 'cow girls', and all cows in general.

Here are 2 great Treasuries on Etsy......to show our appreciation for Cows! 
So go hug a cow, or at least pay your respects and give them a shout out! 
And think of them while eating your summer ice cream treat!  They give us so much, and they are so beautiful to behold!
