Friday Pretties: Birthday-cowboy


Saddle up and ride your pony!

If someone in our family has birthday, i do a special painting as a decoration. It's a tradition we started, when the kids were really small. We had all kinds of animals, comic-creatures and super-heroes already. Now big boy is riding out on his own trips, and, since mama has the cowboy-feeling on her mind i dedicated this theme to him this year. I'm dreaming of painting a big canvas with horses and all, maybe soon! Hope your weekend will be filled with sunshine, love and fun. See you soon lovelies!

There never was a horse that couldn't be rode;
Never was a cowboy who couldn't be throwed.

Painting: Martina Voigt-Schmid

  15. OH MARTINA! It is so good to have you back; during that Blogger meltdown, I felt so detached from all of you and I realized what a big part of my life you all are!!!! I WILL ADD YOU TO MY LIST FOR THE PARIS PARTY ON MAY 28th? I will do that now with your link!!!! We just got back from a BEAUTIFUL WALK amongst flowering trees and open tulips. We finally have spring!

    Merci Martina my friend, and I will put you on my list! Have a wonderful week...oh, the countdown is on for the end of school and everyone is stressed out!
