Too cool is right. I really like seeing the process. How nice to add such a imaginative image to a room that adds a bit of versatility with a chalkboard sign they can write on just for fun. Smiling

I agree She looks a little like Maxine's sister to me. The prettier one of course. Great article! I enjoyed seeing the process.

He's a little chubby. And a gardener with a green thumb. I'll post him here tomorrow.

Thanks Pegi!

Here is Tony BooJangles, named in a contest we had over on Dg. He is an incredibly happy man! He was once a chef but I made him over into a garden guy. He loves Myrtle....she is kinda ho hum about him but with her you never can really "read" her.

He had been working in the garden all day and his thumb turned green.

Here's Tony when he was a chef. A cleaner job than gardening but he's happier outside!

I bought Tony at a kitchen-specialty store for my long ago home where I had a huge kitchen. He didn't fit in my new smaller bungalow style home so he was sent to the garden!

He's wonderful! Takes a good natured guy to handle Myrtle is my guess. Grow it and cook it up! Talented! Like you. I tip my hat to you. Thanks for sharing his picture. Your cubit is full of interesting things.

I do remember seeing Tony over on DG, almost forgot about him. Out of sight out of mind, geez hate those senior moments.

I couldn't decide if I still wanted to subscribe to DG, my time was running out. Well, I decided it was money well spent so I'm there for another year. California gardening friends are over there and I don't want to lose them.

Keep on showing us your painting with pictures. Hurray!

I will Pegi, thanks! I just realize I double posted Tony as a chef. I'll go fix that and add something else.

I still belong to DG because we have SW Forum friends who will not get over here....I want to stay in touch too. But I spend most of my internet time here on Cubits. (especially with several cubits to manage ...lol)
