Watercolor World for me!

This gallery contains 4 photos.

Since retiring last year, I’ve been able to focus more on drawing and painting again.   I guess I’d been side-tracked with life.  Below see some of my work: I plan on selling packages of original watercolor notecards in my store. … Continue reading

The ETSY store is proving to be a lot of fun!  Check it out, I’d love to hear any suggestions you may have.  I started out including shipping costs in the sales price, not sure if this is appealing to all.

Let me know if you are looking for something special or you want to make me another offer on an item.   write to me at: rather984@hotmail.com

Retirement! Yes!

After retiring from Smith International, Inc./Schlumberger I am able to ramp up my Rather’s Store.  Tomorrow, Smith has a Holiday Event/Sale from 9-1.  So excited to be a part of this side.  Proceeds from the booth rentals and concessions are going to JDRF.

I have 8 boxes of art, antiques and collectibles.  A few items of interest include: Handmade cement leaf castings, sea glass necklaces, an awesome mirrored door from an old armoire, a kitchen cruet set, old fishing lures, and a favorite of mine is an antique dresser top vanity.

My friend Kate is selling tomorrow as well, check out her website, The Upcycled Home:

A Year???

I cannot believe i have not posted here in a year!  Flashback 2 years and the company i have worked for was purchased by a HUGE company.  Needless to say, there were doubts that i would be around much longer.  So, guess what….i’m still there.  And been working harder than ever unfortunately.  Thus, my absence.  Missed ya!

I got a surprise today!

Dragged myself to the mailbox this afternoon and pulled out a package casually addressed to me, and figured it was a book from amazon.  NO!!  it was the most darling painting of a little red robin.  Now after I got over my excitement, I became concerned, because I did not order a little red robin painting.  This would mean I had to give it back to someone.  Sadness.  Look at this painting and tell me you don’t love it!    

Inside the package was a business card.  Linda says, well, maybe it is someone who has read your website and sent this to you.  Yeah.  Then she tells me to find out.  Ok, I e-mail Sarah Souders and probably sound a little pathetic, because I really don’t want to give this robin back.  Well, she answered me right away.  It seems, that my Nicholas had commisioned this painting for me, his Mother.  Oh, my heart sings!  Thank you again Nicholas and Sarah Souders, our new friend! 

Take a look , her work is quite eclectic  (which Nick knows is right up my alley)

Lots of new news!  Check out the “Art” page for an article on one of our favorite Texas artists, Charles Lasell.  Take a look at his style and get hooked!

I still could not get a “buy it now button” installed, anyone want to volunteer their expertise?  So…go to the For Sale page and shop.  My inventory is small and easy to shop.  All prices include shipping & tax.  If you are looking for something special, give me a shout and I will keep my eyes and ears open for you.

Rather’s Store update

I have never professed to be a computer whiz. And there are some of you that will laugh, but doggone it this is tough for me!  I set up the paypal account and now if I could just figure out how to add the “buy it now” button, our store will be up and running.

I was just thinking……..& About Us

Listen to the words to The Battle Hymn of the Republic, do you hear the line being sung about the “The Grapes of Rather’s Store”?  Those are the words that were heard by a little girl in the early 1900’s.  … Continue reading
