hello Monday

Another dreary winter day...
...but thankful that I'm not getting the snow that others are.
a happy shadow
I awoke a few days ago to this smiling creature in my bedroom window. It's a big rusty iron crab that I put in the window while vacuuming and forgot to put back on the floor.
Creepy or cute?
It gave me a chuckle and I thought I'd pass it along.
Happy Monday!

rainy day

It's rainy
it's cold
it's damp
and it's supposed to start snowing....
It's a perfect studio day!
I hung up my antique quilt for a curtain in the sun room and it keeps it warmer in the room.
I painted the saying on an old cabinet door. We decided to retire in's where we met...fell in love...and married.
And we both love the beach!
And no sales's a good thing.
Happy Wednesday!

Art is.....

I love this saying.
It's another gray day here on the east coast.
Today I am working in the studio.
Still lots of work to do to get it the way I want so I can start working.
Have a great Wednesday!

back again!

Hello again from the east coast!
Geez, I've been gone from blogland for so long I have almost forgotten how to post. First of all, let me explain my long absence. My computers hard drive crashed! It's a new computer.....not even a year old yet. The company argued and said it could not happen. ell it did and we had to have a new hard drive sent and then waited for a geek to come out and install it. And yes I lost everything. All my photo's. No I didn't back it up.
Lesson learned. I seem to like to learn things the hard way.
Then there's the bad leg. Found out I have torn my meniscus in my knee and need to have surgery to fix it. I see the surgeon this Thursday.
Then there is the doggone snow.
I can't drive my car in this stuff!

Since I have been housebound and stuck downstairs....I painted some funky walls. I painted my hallway like this. I used some brighter colors then used a brown wash to tone it down. I really love it.

I do have some fabric art I am working on and will share some later on this week.
Have a great weekend!
Golden Globes tonight.
