25 things about *ME*

I have been posting tons of pictures lately but, not really wordy posts. I am trying to get my thoughts together to make work for upcoming shows this Fall and Winter and needed to become reacquainted with myself.
  1. all about the nasal, have to smell everything
  2. texture too, cannot keep my fingers off stuff
  3. love tea but, lately coffee
  4. still not a purest, cream and sugar please
  5. too many collections going on at any given moment
  6. trying to become more austere in my decorating
  7. my Sony Cybershot DSC-H1 is my new obsession
  8. fresh herbs rule
  9. always cry in Gladiator
  10. in Titanic
  11. in The Secret Garden, blah, blah, blah...
  12. my girls come first
  13. hate but, love winter
  14. wish a lived in a warmer climate all year long
  15. my upstairs is very, very messy
  16. and it drives me insane
  17. morning person
  18. still have not had that retro party but, keep suggesting it time and time again, complete with fondue
  19. too, too many fondue pots...10 now I think
  20. just discovering the beauty of the me at 39
  21. I read reference books over fiction
  22. love images, which entails being on the computer too much
  23. I find my husbands balding head very attractive
  24. too many stacks of books, everywhere
  25. always thinking about the next project

Blue Girl and Ironstone rest on my livingroom mantel just staring and sitting. I love this oil painting that my Great Uncle did, many years ago. I inherited this piece along with many sketches, from his sister, my Grandmother.

She also was very much the artist.

DD has been on a felting binge with pillows and embelllishing. I love her new work!

Larissa is making these felted accent pillows now. They are the real deal, everything about them is handcrafted felt from her hands.

So color rich!

Yesterday I heard confirmation that the large package was received safe and sound. I was so afraid something would happen to damage the work, or it would get lost, or the weather...etc. etc.
I packed it up extra special with not only her purchased pieces but, loads of extras for her wonderful self.

She had to have the real Grimm's fairy tales, just to see what it is all about. Pretty interesting stuff I must say. This one is called the Willful Child. Lots of death and carnage, crazy stuff.... Can you imagine, back in the day, the thoughts that went through those little one's minds?

Nasty trash Boy

I am so sorry for getting in the trash.....again........ Mom
He is such an attentive loving Border Collie in that he is not destructive or nippy. But, every now and then he just starts to tweak about needing to get in the garbage. We have him on a diet, for he is a bit of a Kielbasa, food is his drug of choice and I forgot to tie the bag...Posted by Picasa

Forest Nook Fall Festival

The show yesterday was in Cook Forest State Park at the Forest Nook Restaurant and shoppe. Here is a pic of the shoppe where we were next to. Such a gorgeous day in Pennsylvania! Larissa, Pat and I again together for this one. Friends of mine from town are involved with this restaurant venture. They asked it I would be interested in being the featured artist for the day, in their first of many fall shows to come. A local radio station came to broadcast the event. They have some fantastic ideas on how to better the area's artisan scene. Posted by Picasa

Posting *stuff*

I cannot believe it has been Tuesday since my last post for, I have been an insane posting person lately. I am getting a very large package together for a collector and getting some other custom orders ready. There is a show this weekend where I am being featured, it is a new restaurant called 'The Forest Nook' in Cooks Forest. I have invited my dd and friend Miss Pat to go along for the day. It should be just gorgeous in and amongst the park and fall foliage. It is a beautiful area!
I love Flickr and started another group called Realizations in Pennsylvania
So many good photo ops in the area. Photo walks with some Pa. locals would be great eventually. I have eldest dd hooked!
