Lewis Halloween Mailbox Decoration # 2

We took the Jack-O-Lantern down this morning and took it back to the shop. I’ll clean it carefully and then use some really bright, neon orange paint to see if I can get it to show up better at night when car lights hit it.


We put our ghost up for the rest of the month. This is the back of the piece.


This is the front. It’s funny, but this is one of our most simple pieces. It shows up at night better than anything we’ve made before or since. I love his happy expression. I hope he brings a smile or two.

Mailbox Decoration – Jack-O-Lantern

And this is the front. I wish he glowed in the dark…

Happy Independence Day 2017!

LoveThisPic – Dreamer


It’s supposed to be rainy here this afternoon and this evening, MAYBE allowing some fireworks late.  For many years this would have ruined my 4th of July. Happily, my life is so full these days that watching fireworks from our backyard valley neighbors will be icing on the cake.


Visit Philadelphia

We don’t have work planned today. Our rambunctious labrador puppy, Amber, is asleep beside my chair as I type. My husband and I are old, but reasonably healthy. We’ve just chosen a new ‘sun’ wall hanging design to try to make on our CNC table as soon as we can arrange for the a/c to work in the shop again.

Our animals are healthy and happy. Our son, across the world from us, is taking classes in Mandarin and Thai, working out at the gym, making music, and working. It just doesn’t get much better than this.

So, happy Independence Day!  I hope that you’re enjoying the day, doing something fun, celebrating our country’s 241st birthday.

July 4th Memories


I’ve always loved the 4th of July. My favorite thing, other than watching the professional shows, is sparklers and snakes.


Latinos Post

It was my dad’s favorite holiday. He used to get a whole group of ladyfinger firecrackers that were all tied together in a big double swath, kind of like the ammo belts and shoulder harnesses bandoliers used to wear, and light the end of it so all of the firecrackers went off serially, seemingly forever. He would laugh with joy every time he did this.


Toward the end of his life, his health was very poor. He had a bad combination of dangerously enlarged heart, emphysema, and had bad cataracts – so bad he really had trouble seeing anything. His health was so poor that the surgeons didn’t want to risk removing the cataracts.

My husband-to-be spent all one July 4th evening setting off firecrackers that my dad could SEE and HEAR. I spent the whole evening in happy tears, seeing the joy on my dad’s face, love pouring out for my fiance’. If I didn’t love him for 9 million other reasons, I would love him for the gift he gave my dad that year.

May you enjoy sparklers, snakes, and beautiful fireworks this July 4th.

Happy Independence Day!

Welcome, Summer!

“As a major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year. The Northern Hemisphere celebrates in June, but the people on the Southern half of the earth have their longest summer day in December.” ~ Unknown

“The Celts & Slavs celebrated the first day of summer with dancing & bonfires to help increase the sun’s energy. The Chinese marked the day by honoring Li, the Chinese Goddess of Light.” ~ Unknown

“Perhaps the most enduring modern ties with Summer Solstice were the Druids’ celebration of the day as the “wedding of Heaven and Earth”, resulting in the present day belief of a “lucky” wedding in June.” ~ Unknown

Happy Father’s Day, Jim

Jim Wheaton

My dad’s left arm was shorter than his right and his hand was curved, almost useless, from a fall from a horse when he was 3. I almost forgot that he might be a bit challenged from time to time. He never talked about it, never brought attention to it. He just lived with it. We saw a panhandler on the street when we were on vacation when I was a child. He walked up to the man, who had an arm just like his. The man asked for money, holding up his arm. My dad simply held up HIS arm and said, “Get a job.”

My dad loved to tell jokes and stories. He loved puns. He loved sarcasm. He survived by humor when he was a child, dealing with kids on the playground, who made fun of his arm. He made them laugh so hard they finally accepted him and quit bullying.

He brought his family to Tulsa, Oklahoma from Chicago/New York/Long Island with a dream of having his own advertising agency. 25 years later, he won a “Lifetime Achievement Award” for his “Unique contribution to the advertising world in Tulsa, OK” shortly before he died, having supported his family and putting two kids through college.

He came to a class when I was going for a Master’s Degree as a Reading Specialist. My talk in that class was teaching children to listen wisely to advertising. My dad was the guest speaker. He was a bit of a celebrity, billing himself as “Tulsa’s 2nd worst radio voice.” His radio spots got people’s attention because they made you listen, sometimes making you laugh. You always remembered the companies lucky enough to hire him. At the end of the class, he said something to the effect – “It’s fun to write advertising commercials. It’s fun to come and talk to you today. But the thing I love the most about today is getting to watch my daughter give a speech. My daughter is Linda Lewis.” You could have heard a pin drop at the surprise  – and then delight  – in the room. They erupted in applause and I cried.

My dad was unique. He was ahead of his time. He wanted my brother and me to call him “Jim” because “dad” kind of embarrassed him. He was an only child and didn’t figure he was that great as a dad. He set an example of honesty, integrity, determination and courage in living his life every day. He said, “Remember me laughing.”

I do, Jim, even with tears in my eyes. Happy Father’s Day.

“He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” ~Clarence Budington Kelland

Memorial Day in Greenwood, Arkansas

Greenwood Arkansas Memorial Park

Greenwood, Arkansas is a small town about 9 miles south and east of Fort Smith in west-central Arkansas.  At last official count, there were a little over 9,000 people living here.

There is a ‘square’ that makes up most of ‘downtown’ that brings back happy memories of visiting my grandmother for two weeks in the summers in Nevada, Missouri. I felt all grown up, getting to stay there by myself, walk to the shops and the library by myself and be thoroughly spoiled. My grandmother was phenomenal, taking sole care of my grandfather who was bedridden from Multiple Sclerosis. She seemed to look forward to the visits of her grandchildren, one at a time each summer, doing all sorts of wonderful, special things we would remember vividly the rest of our lives. When my husband showed me Greenwood, planning to take a job in Fort Smith, I fell in love with it immediately.

The court house used to be in the center of the square. One time it was destroyed by fire. It was again destroyed in 1969 when a tornado leveled the town and killed many. The clock tower is all that remained in the center of the square. Recently, a local businessman built a new copper-looking roof for the clock tower. It really looks wonderful, shining in the sun as you enter the square from any direction. (The court house is now across the street to the south from what is now called, “Memorial Park.”)

Several years ago funds were gathered and grants won in order to turn what was a nice little park into “Memorial Park” – honoring our veterans. If you look carefully, you can see plaques that have been set in concrete up and down both sides of the concrete paths in the park. These were purchased by the families of the veterans to honor their family member for their service to our country. There are more plaques in the park each year. Flags are put out on all appropriate holidays – a sight to see! What you cannot see in this picture are statues commemorating each of the services around the base of the clock tower. Nice benches were added and some lights, and hanging baskets of flowers, and a nice wrought iron fence around the street side of the park. There is a gazebo on one end, surrounded by knockout rose bushes, where people sing and play instruments from time to time.

This is the center of our town. A town proud of the people who made our country great, who served to keep our people free.

Memorial Day 2017 – 2

Romper – 10 Sing It Loud and Proud

“I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.”  ~ Benjamin Harrison

Happy May 1st!

Our Continent – Our Culture –

I can’t remember where I was or how old I was when I actually got to do this one year, but I remember it was loads of fun. I vividly remember the excitement, the laughter, the delighted faces of everyone around me, young and old. I regret I am unable to give credit to the kind people who made this possible for me. It was the one and only time I did the Maypole Dance, and it was a high point in my life.

I looked up how one is actually supposed to do a Maypole Dance, since I don’t remember any particular rhyme or reason.

Put the Maypole together. Unless you have access to a Maypole that has already been made for the purpose, you will need to make your own. Find a tall pole and attach ribbons or strong streamers at the top of the pole. These ribbons will need to be an even number, the same number of ribbons as there are dancers.

Divide the dancers into two groups. For example, you might have them count off one, two, one, two, one, two around the circle, or A, B, A, B, etc. The A’s can go clockwise and the B’s go counterclockwise. The dancers go alternately right and left of the dancers going in the opposite direction.

Develop a pattern. The pattern the dancers should keep in mind is over, under, over, under, over, under etc.
On the count of “over”, the dancer raises his ribbon slightly so the dancer coming in the opposite direction can duck under his ribbon.
On the count of “under” the dancer ducks under the ribbon of the dancer coming in the opposite direction.

(Source – Wiki – How To Do Anything)

No excuses now for not stopping and participating, just in case you see a Maypole Dance going on. :0)

Happy May 1st to you!

Happy Easter!

Birthday Greeting Cards by Davia


A hundred years or so ago, when I was a child, they sold chicks for Easter at the local hardware store.  A bunch of us persuaded one of the moms to take us to get one.  (This was before it was generally known that this was not a good thing to do to the chicks)

There were about 5 of us and we each got a different colored chick. We named our chicks and proudly brought them home – to appalled moms all over the neighborhood who had no place for a chick, and the resulting grown chicken if the chick happened to live.  (I now look at this through a very different lens. Back then, I was in Heaven and couldn’t figure out why my mom wasn’t delighted with my CUTE light blue chick I had named Elizabeth.

They grew – as chicks do. As they did, the dye faded or the baby chick fuzz left, replaced by feathers. Some of the chicks died. Mine didn’t, but my mom was adamant she was not going to make a chicken house. I kept Elizabeth in a box in the garage for a time, and then my friend Ann’s mom said she would take the chicks at her house. I walked to Ann’s every day to see Elizabeth. Soon, though, it was harder and harder to tell one chicken from another.

Added to this, the sweet, CUTE chicks had become pretty LARGE, mean chickens – who pecked us!

I visited Elizabeth less and less during the coming weeks. Finally, the mom who was raising the chickens for us told us that if we wanted our now fully grown chicken, we should come get them. Otherwise, they were going into the freezer.

By that time, I wasn’t upset that Elizabeth was to become a fried chicken dinner. I learned a valuable lesson. Chicks, rabbits, miniature turtles, and all the other things that are so CUTE when they’re young really shouldn’t be sold as temporary playthings to children at Easter or any other time.

I was lucky that my friend’s mom was willing to build a chicken house so that Elizabeth and the others had the best possible life they could have had, given their start in life.

Easter Memories

I loved Easter as a child.  Fond memories include getting something new to wear. I remember in particular the year when I got the softest, fuzziest pale pink sweater I ever saw – before or since. I LOVED that sweater and how ‘girly’ I felt each time I wore it.

One of my favorite things was dying Easter eggs. My mom wasn’t really into it, but she allowed us to get some dye. I still love to see all the creative ideas people have for decorating eggs!

Easter Egg Hunts were highlights of my childhood. Usually, we went to the one held on the grounds around our church. They would allow the smallest egg-gathers time to find some eggs before unleashing the next youngest group, giving each group the joy of finding eggs. I always had a basket and brought the eggs home as a carefully guarded treasure. I put the eggs in the fridge – separate from my brother’s stash – and would hope I got to eat every one.  My parents got us a chocolate Easter Rabbit in our basket of fake grass. I loved it!

I went with my friends to a lot of different churches when I wasn’t at my own. The Easter celebration I remember most vividly was the Episcopalian celebration. I was in the child’s choir. I loved the look of the church, with its beautiful stained glass windows and lofty ceiling. I loved the beautiful hymns we sang in harmony created by the choir director. I loved all the pretty Easter dresses, moms with Easter bonnets, and black patent leather shiny shoes.

Now I’m older than dirt and can hide my own Easter eggs, except that I might not find them all again….

I hope you have a wonderful Easter!

Custom Christmas Cards – Take 2


As I told you yesterday, I’ve had a lot of fun creating these “Gingerbread Coolies” Custom Christmas cards. I’ll be listed them on Creative Artworks soon, but I wanted to show them to you and see what you think. The design on the left above is “Christmas Bell,” and the one on the right is “Gingerbread Girl.”



The one on the top is “Giant Gingerbread Cookie,” and the one on the bottom is “Starburst.” The customer can choose any combination of 8 cards in a package, and then can customize words on the front and on the inside at no extra charge.



Since each card is made to order,  customers will need to allow approximately 3 weeks for delivery to be sure I can fill the order in good time. The one on the left is “Angel,” and the one on the right is “Blue Bird.”



The one on the left is “Snowman,” and the one on the right is “Christmas Tree.” I can do the same design as you see in the picture or I can customize it further by changing color accents if you like.



The design on the left is “Christmas Ornament,” and the one on the right is “Christmas Bird.”

I used cookie cutters for some of the designs, and wooden ornaments for others, painted them the gingerbread cookie brown, and then had fun decorating the cookies! :0)

Happy New Year!

“Saturday (Jan. 28) marks the beginning of the Chinese Lunar New Year, China’s biggest holiday, which is celebrated throughout the world, including in the U.S. Each year, Chinese people ring in the new year around when the new moon is closest to the beginning of spring, usually sometime between mid-January and late-February. Although China officially uses the international Gregorian calendar, the traditional lunisolar calendar remains a symbol to harken the start of spring.

Each year, the Chinese calendar assigns an animal from a rotating zodiac of 12 animals. The 12 animals cycle through rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. 2016 was the Year of the Monkey. Apart from 2017, the Year of the Rooster includes the years 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2029.

2017 is a Fire Rooster Year. According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with one of five elements as well as an animal, including gold (metal), wood, water, fire or Earth. The element, combined with the zodiac animal, set the astrology for the year. This year is a fire year, and so those born in 2017 are Fire Roosters. The last Fire Rooster Year was 1957.”  Source:

Our son is a traveler who loves to live and work in other countries (plus try to learn their language), so we’ve been introduced to the Chinese New Year when he was living in Chengdu, China; then Shanghai, China; and now Chiang Mai, Thailand. Each year HUGE celebrations are held with people going wherever home is to be with their families. Some shops are only open sporadically, while others are open 24 hours a day.  A wonderful time for optimism and joy!
