little card drawings


I make these little drawings of Pen & Ink and Watercolor, on watercolor
paper, for cards!
On the front the Pedestal Cake and an open envelope so one can
personalize, and on the back I put a mailbox on it.
Been making these since I copyrighted them back in 2000 yr.

Fathers Day Sunday

Dad, 

My beloved Father,shown here w/my son Shayn a very long time ago!
He and Mother had us five children,three sons and two daughters, dog and cat, and one Grandson.
He was a hard worker, affording us every summer of our life on Nantucket Island.
We all miss him and I was so close to him, the first born.
It's so important for daughter's to have great relationships with their dad, I did.

Happy Fathers Day!

cell phone

The title maybe should have been "OR THE LACK OF"
MY CELL PHONE.

Well my cell phone died, simply one day it stoped working.
I thought of not using mine for some time just to see if I could manage.
Now, I do not use mine like most, constantly, daily, for me it's for emergencies,
as I still like having a land phone for regular chat.

So, anyway going on week seven I decided to get a new phone, new number
and a new color.

I see people walking and driving on their cell phones and a few times 
people on the phone with another ringing in their pocket and or handbag!
To each his own.

It is more a safety buffer for me, if something happens on the road or off Island
I need to let the Dr. office I may be running late, or call a taxi.
They have a lot of advantages, but for me all those weeks really did not affect me.

Trying to live a more Hygee life, but I will admit, I did miss my cell phone
and now have a new one.

pink singer

In my youth I had no desire to learn to sew, none!
Then there was a time when I sewed by hand and made lovely quilts.
Of late, a couple of years now a strong
urge caused me to purchase her.
One, to get back quilting and taking clothes in. I figured just basics
nothing fancy.
Along with a basic sewing class and I'm on my way.

Oh, SPRING

Spring has sprung? Not quite yet, around these parts.
But, I had to start clearing through my clothes to organize my
lovelies!

I adore lace, ruffles, linen and cottons for the warmer Season.
Here's a small collection of the edges of my skirts, tops and dresses!

Lovely also is the wearing of footless tights, which hit the ankle area or cover the knee.
They also help when I'm riding my bike, with a dress or skirt on, my usual attire!

If only the days would open up to more sunshine and less rain, OH SPRING!

spring

Spring

So many things come to mind.
Rain
Sun
Warmth
Flowers
Open windows
Birdsong
Pedicures

I am a spa treatment gal
and Spring means sometimes wearing sandals or booties 
with toes showing, peaking out
which means pedicures!
Pretty nail lacquers in so many colors!

veggies

Here we are into the last day of March!

My thoughts are on recipes and a new website and soup
and root veggies roasted!

When I roast a chicken, it serves many purposes.

Dinner when complete, sandwiches or chicken burritos and soup.

Veggies oh yes, so looking forward to the CSA weekly
baskets, fresh eggs included!

Roasting veggies I just toss all in olive oil, and sprinkle 
Champagne Vinegar on top into a 360 oven temp,
check veg for tenderness-done in approx. 1 1/2 hr.

Chicken soup I cut up chicken- say 2-3 cups, chop 3 stalks of celery, egg noodles,
and 5 carrots, place all in your soup pot and cover with chicken stalk.
Bring to boil and lower heat to med low till carrots are cooked-done.
I serve with garlic & butter bisquits.

Enjoy your time making and your Friday, as we await snow!
