Camp Out!!

Nature is so incredible this time of year...
We decided to take a camping trip...




There's nothing like...
the smell of a campfire...
the taste of hotdogs and smores...
the tunes of Linus and Lucy...
the frustration of assembling a tent...
winning a card game...
waking up and it's 32 degrees...
A great but chilly time was had by all!!

Mellow Yellow and Orange Crush

Colors of the day are yellow and orange...

These cute orange swimmers greeted me last week...


Mr. Tidy refers to these yellow beauties as weeds...I beg to differ...


Love an aged orange terracotta pot...


Antique yellow costume jewelry on an antique Blue Willow plate...how divine!


And what's a day without great tunes...here's two:
Orange Crush, and
Mellow Yellow...
Enjoy!!!

Green Day

Tuesday is Green Day...

I love coneflowers...they are just starting to open in my garden...can't wait for all the pink that will follow this beautiful green!!!


I love any kind of green mossy concrete...this gargoyle is slowly aging in my garden.


Artichokes are one of my favorite green things to eat...


We're attempting to grow green zuchinni this year...we'll see...


Enjoy your Tuesday!!

The Start of Color Week...

It's color week. And the color for the day is BLUE. I woke up to a perfect blue sky...I haven't seen one of those in a sooooooooo long! I decided to post some of my favorite blue things....

My favorite blue flower...
I found these hydrangeas starting to bloom this morning...what a glorious sight to behold. They will forever remind me of my Grandmother (Mimi). I love having them in my garden for that reason.


My favorite blue necklace...
When I wear this I think of my favorite artist, Frida Kahlo. She will always inspire and teach me through her art.


Enjoy your Day!

It's Friday!!

I have enjoyed playing around with my macro lens and photoshop this week...there is sooo much to learn and I am having fun experimenting. I have mentioned before that I love antiques...I also love old photos. Here's my attempt at making my photos appear antique-y. I'm still learning...many more to come soon...



This one is my favorite...


I'm also working on three paintings at the moment...hoping to finish them soon. Here's a sneak peek...

This one is large (for me). I usually work on smaller canvases, but I've enjoyed this 30x40 canvas!

Very early stages of this one...

Have a great weekend everyone!
