My granddaughter Savannah has so much artistic talent. This is a pixel painting she made this past fall. She said it made with markers. I wish she would make me one of these. I may have to ask.
This is from last weekend, when she attended a Mumford and Sons concert.. She was with her parents. Savannah just turned 17. She's a straight "A" student. Loves choir and art.
Here's some old photos her mother put together for her friends to see at the birthday party. It seemed she would not get hair ever, then it came in so blond and fine. Ted said he heard her screaming like a banshee once ,while her mother combed it. LOL Oh he loves telling her that story.
She went thru a couple years of wearing her hair in every color you could think . I kind of like this "old lady" lavender. She's always pretty, no matter the color.
This is her natural color. She keeps it short, I think she just hates tangled hair that much.
This is a photo of an art project. She chose this picture of a flower, I am not sure what it is, looks like a lily.
This is how she made her picture , with colored pencils. She entered it into an art show...But I have not heard any thing. Her art teacher's father told the teacher it was very good...the teacher told Savannah , , that comment from her father was like an award.
This was her latest project. A self portrait. Once papaw gets thru some of his health issues, he will frame her art pieces. I think she is doing well in her artwork. I love this sweet girl with a gentle soul.
Just a quick up-date...Ted has an appointment Monday morning with the hematologist N.P. He is to have his lab work at Riverview and the N.P. will rush it for the results. This is to keep him in remission.
Thanks to all of you for your continued prayers. We are so very grateful. XO
Happy Birthday to your Savannah. I especially like the photo of her on the water. (I guess I'm really old - I've never heard of Mumford & Son.) And Savannah is really talented and smart. She's so sweet, I'm sure she would be happy to do one of those paintings for you! xoxo, ConnieReplyDelete
Hi Connie. Thank you for your kind words about Savannah. She is a little sweetheart. Oh the music these days.LOL I still love old motown music. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Wow Susie your granddaughter is so incredibly talented!!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Debbie. I am proud of how she loves music and art. She is not in the sports at all. Sad in a way. I think all kids should at least try some things. Hope you are still enjoying looking at gardens...I can't wait to see yours. I have always loved seeing the flowers and veggies. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Wow Savannah is so talented. Beautiful inside and out. Love her art work.ReplyDelete
Happy Friday Susie.
Thank you Kris. I was thinking of you today as we went to town. I think I missed the first Horton's market. I will have to go look inside if I get a chance this weekend. Blessings to you and your family. xoxo, SusieDelete
Savannah is very talented! Love the bald photos. My babies were bald for the longest time. So sweet when the fine baby hair comes in. Beautiful and creative artwork. Hoping for a good report for Ted. Please keep us updated.ReplyDelete
Hi Karen, I will absolutely keep everyone informed about Ted's appts. and results. Thank you for your sweet words about Savannah. She is very talented and I hope she will always keep up her art work. Blessings for a great weekend. There were three super nice days here before the rains. xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh my goodness what a VERY talented Savanah. I do remember our kids going throuh trends. Fiunky colors of hair wasn't in back then, but my son grew his hair longer than mine or any of the girls. He still had it long when he got married and wore a white tux and white high top Rebox tennis shoes. btw his hair was longer than his bride. Fast forward, now he balding at 54 and has a long beard...but he and his wife have raised fine adult sons, and Kaleb just got his RN and a job at St. Jude Hospital working with sick children. So I'm ok with trends. HaHa.ReplyDelete
Wanda, I am so thrilled for Kaleb. That is a wonderful job for him. Helping sick children will be so good. I laughed about your son's long hair. Teddy used to have long hair also. I am hoping our sweet Savannah will always do art and sing every chance she gets. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh I think your granddaughter would love to do a painting for you. She is a talented and creative girl. Keeping you folks in prayer. Have a restful, pleasant weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Vee. We have appointments coming up this coming week. I will post what we find out. It a wet weekend so far. I am hoping we do not too much rain...ready for the yard to dry up. I did get out to clean up some of the flowerbeds I had to just let go in fall.Delete
I will ask Savannah to make me a smaller picture, so it won't seem like work. LOL. But if I ask her and say I am paying her like a real artist , she might. :) Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie
I always think it's neat when girls dye their hair unnatural colors. Not many guys try, I remember a kid in middle school doing it blue. Looked dumb on him, we called him Blue's Clues.ReplyDelete
Adam, I remember when people wanted the dyes to match their own hair color. LOL. Thank goodness those colors aren't long lasting. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
artists are so special, so creative, a different breed!! thinking of you and ted, hoping for good news and better health!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Debbie. We have many appointments coming up. Praying we get good news each time...so Ted can proceed with the bone marrow transplant. His spirits are very good.Delete
Savannah is a quiet girl with a sweet soul. Gentle in nature. I think she is talented yself and I hope she sticks with art. She started choir when she was in grade school. Like your little cuties. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
Happy Birthday to Savannah! She is very talented with her artwork! Have a great weekend Susie!ReplyDelete
Thank you Pilar. I have been thinking of you. I pray you are doing well and enjoying the start of spring.Delete
Savannah is a kind spirited girl. She's quiet too. I love seeing what she can do in art. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
Happy Birthday to Savannah! Shes artsy so of course shes going to do creative things to her hair! I used to wear mine super short years ago. It is easier and more sassy.ReplyDelete
Hi Lisa, I like the coloring of Savannah's hair. I also like to see it natural. I think she is wanting to be a hair dresser, because she does love styling and coloring hair. I remember wearing pixie cuts when I was a young teen. I think all kids go thru a hair stage. LOL I will tell her everyone's birthday wishes. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh Susie what an amazing artist your grand daughter is, she is a beautiful young lady, I laughed when you said she keeps her hair short because of tangles, I have that fine hair too😊, I keep you and your husband in my prayers and thoughts always, take care my friend.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for the prayers Laurie. We are being helped by each one. We are grateful too.Delete
I love my g.daughter and enjoy her art work so much. She's going to love reading all the kind comments. Blessings to you and yours, hope all is well. xoxo, Susie
LOVE the purple hair!ReplyDelete
Her artwork is beautiful.
Thank you Sandi. I am proud of Savannah's art work. I love her choir programs too. Blessings, hope all is well there. xoxo, SusieDelete
Beautiful artwork. I love the hair changes. I tend to be boring and just keep mine the same! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!ReplyDelete
Thank you Theresa. Savannah has made her hair many colors. I liked the paler ones as opposed to the dark , greens, blues and reds. LOL She is very talented in art and music. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Well done, Savannah! I think you should tell her that's exactly what you would love for your birthday or Christmas. I bet she'd be thrilled to comply!ReplyDelete
Jeanie, I was thinking that very thing. LOL. Maybe mother's day (granny too). LOL She is a sweetheart, so kind. Blessings to you and your husband, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh, Susie....she is beautiful...and very talented. I know just how much you love her...I have some I love more than life.ReplyDelete
So glad your sweetheart is in remission and doing well. Prayers for all of you. It's such a hard time...it's been almost 2 yrs since Mr. Sweet went to his reward and I am still having some hard days. Much better tho...I am trying what a friend told me...to be happier for him than sad for me. xoxo
BJ, We humans are kind of selfish, always want to cling to our loved ones. I had never heard that, being happier for the one who passed and less sad for ourselves. I know you must feel so lonely for Mr. Sweet at times. When Ted was in the hospital and I could not be with him, I was so very sad and lonely. I told him it was like we had been "conjoined twins" and someone cut my twin away. We are together all the time except when he goes fishing for a week. Even then I know when he will be return, so I can manage.Delete
I think Savannah is very artistic and I hope she always wants to do art. Blessings to you , love you, xoxo, Susie
Happy Birthday sweet Savannah, I hope you enjoy your special day :)ReplyDelete
You have talent to spare, I hope you keep on pursuing and enjoying your art.
Thank you Jo. I will absolutely read this to her. She is a good girl. I want her to love art always. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Happy Birthday to a beautiful young lady and oh my what talent she has. Prayers continue for you both. xoxoxReplyDelete
