Rainy Day Boots & Classic Cupcakes Painting

A while back I was reading Aunt Ruthie's Sugar Pie Farmhouse blog and she mentioned her chicken wellies that she got at Gardener's Supply.  These are seconds that they are selling for 1/2 price because the chicken design is a little stretched around the foot area.   I seem to have a wellie addiction!  Who knew there were so many cute designs?
These fit even better than my red and white polka dot wellies!  I parked them right beside my umbrella stand that I painted many moons ago.  Click on the photos for a closer view.
See the two little girls in the yellow and blue rain coats and umbrellas jumping in the puddles on the umbrella stand?
Tonight I listed this new cupcake painting, "Classic Cupcakes" on eBay.
Nothing beats the flavor of cupcake classics like chocolate with chocolate chip frosting, white with buttercream frosting, and a caramel center cupcake topped with caramel frosting and a drizzle of syrup!

Wish I had more time to paint because ideas are pumping into my little brain at lightening speed.  It will just have to wait because I'll be spending this week preparing for Easter dinner and the celebration of a risen Lord~

  1. Those wellies are darling! I vaguely remember them being mentioned by Aunt Ruthie. She mentions a lot of great things...I'm looking at lanterns that she mentioned awhile ago. Hope that there haven't been too many showers to require the wellies much. They look sweet right there by the umbrella stand.

  2. They are very cute and every time it rains I wish I had a pair. ♥olive

  3. So cute! Love, love, love the chicken wellies. I may have to find me a pair:)

  7. Those boots are great! I've been wanting rain boots for a while, they're quite trendy. I haven't bought any because I wasn't sure how often I would actually wear them.
