Faux Friday and Some Thank You's

Time to share another one of my murals. I hope your all not getting tired of these yet?
This is Atlantis Dental. So of course the theme had to be water.
This is a round wall where the reception desk is.

Far side of round wall. lots of fun fish and sea creatures!

Of course we needed a whale. LOL

I did all the beams and pillars to look like marble.
The sky has lots of soft clouds with touches of pinks.

You can see just a bit of the pillars and the wall on top is rounded
and lite up. Its really pretty with the lights on it.

Next some THANK YOUS

Last night I went to dinner with my dear friends Debbie and Mindi.
At the end of the evening Debbie surprised us both with these gorgeous boxes.


Look at that ribbon rose pin she made for the top. Isn't it just beautiful!!!
and I can wear it too.!!!

When I got home I opened it up and look what was inside.
Gorgeous laces and pearls. She knows me soooo well!! Swoon!!!

and this darling tag she made. We were supposed to get together at Christmas
but was a crazy time of year for all of us. and one of Tim's awesome stamps!!

But check this out!!! Who signed the back of the tag?
TIM himself!!!! Debbie met him earlier last year,
 Don't know how she kept this a secret for so long!!
Thank you my dear friend, You are such an amazing lady and I'm so lucky to
have you and Mindi in my life!!!!

From OWOH

I received all these sweet charms in the mail from Cindy at Everyones Charming
She has wonderful charms for great prices.
 So if your in need of some bling stop on by!
Love those sea horses!!!!


She also sent me these handmade charms. I adore the bird one, its on a scrabble tile.
Thank you so much Cindy. It will all go to good use!

Never bored with your art and craft the water scene is wonderful that wall seems to go on forever with surprises as you go round the curve. Can imagine little people being really excited by it and interacting with it. Relaxing them before the chair! XOXO Zoe

Oh how I wish you could come. I'm really wanting to meet so many blogging friends....wanting to connect and craft. All your goodies look scrumptious....you're very blessed.

Have a great weekend, and big hugs,

I never tire of you murals. The one for the dentist office is absolutely perfect. I like it much better than the real aquariums you often see. The way you completed the ceiling is also spectacular. Maybe one day I'll fly you here to create a mural for me! Your talent is just amazing.

stampdiva said...

Lynn we are not bored with Faux Friday, as if!!
The detail is astonishing and so life like, a bit too much for me, have this "thing" about the ocean and what lurks in it's depths, sort of freaks me out. The clouds are so fluffy. Kids must surely love visiting so they can stare at your murals.
What a gorgeous box and that pin, so many thoughtful gifts.
Wishes
Lynne

Linda R. said...

Hugs, Linda

Louise (KardKrazy) said...

I'm with everyone else....keep the murals coming. I love this water themed one, very different from the others you have shared.

CuddlyBunny said...

Ouu! Great art and art bits from your mailbox!

No! We're not tired of seeing your murals! They're awesome!

I'm really enamored with your cloudy ceiling ... makes me want to grab a lawn chair and a bottle of bubbles! Aaahhhhh ...

Vic said...

Beautiful mural! Your gifts look amazing.

Anji Johnston said...

I had to enlarge every one of these pictures cuz I couldn't beleive my eyes at how much detail you put into these! Honestly Lynn - I just don't know!!! My computer is officially 'broken' (in my opinion anyway) hence the lack of comments and e-mail from me. As soon as a nice geek man can fix it I will be bombarding you with mail! x

Nancy Maxwell James said...

Lynn
