Saturday Snapshot 2-22-1

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at  West Metro Mommy Reads. To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky (at West Metro Mommy). Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

This is my birthday present from my sister and her husband. I'm not sure of the medium but it is by an artist named Mark Zimmerman who lives and paints in the Black Hills of South Dakota. I am so excited to have it. And the best part is that it pairs well with the painting we received for Christmas from our granddaughter. 
This is an original that Kylie painted for us. She is an RN and has extraordinary talent with color and oil paints. She painted a scene from Italy for our daughter and her husband that they have hanging in their dining room. 

Until next time 
Stay Busy and Stay Happy


  1. Beautiful - that second one, is it hanging on your wall? And if it is - what color is the wall - it is gorgeous!

    1. Yes this painting hangs on the wall behind MY CHAIR. The wall color is a sage green, I'll have to go look up the exact color.It is darker than the other 3 walls in our living room. My accent wall if you will. :)

  2. Beautiful artwork. I know you enjoy both pictures, and especially treasure the one painted by Kylie. We have several oils painted by my mother-in-law and they have places of honor in our home.

  3. Love them both! Kylie is very talented!

  4. Your granddaughter is very talented!

  5. Love your birthday gift. Happy birthday. I see that we do share a birthday month. Hope you were healthy and happy for your birthday.

  6. You're so lucky to receive such lovingly painted gifts and they look beautiful.
