Sounds of Home

 Do you stop and listen to the sounds of home?
We open our mail
and chat a bit 
Tearing of paper....
a parcel from France
On our heels a happy dog barks,
 as we make our way into our weekday evening
 Some nights it's studio time before dinner....
 Keeping my attention to detail
finding inspiration with my camera
Imperfections become interesting
Soon I hear dinner dishes clinking 
and then the cooking aromas
 seal us in for the moment
It's just another evening in our home
safe and content.

A Shabby Romantic Corner

A shabby and romantic corner in my studio 
 As often as I change this part of my life...
moving & adding furniture...
some areas of my studio simply never change
and that's okay with me
Have a creative week everyone!

Easter Sunday

I hope your Easter Sunday
is filled with glorious rejoicing

The tomb is still empty. HE is not here;
 HE has risen! He's risen, He's not here... Luke 24:6

Much Needed Garden Time

 With all our busy plans this week,
I will try to sneak some garden time in this weekend.
I can smell the orange blossoms and blooming jasmine in our yard.
 Taking photos outside is much better 
than in this studio
 Here's to sprucing up my patio
grabbing a few spring weather moments

A Sunday Morning Sunrise

 This morning's sunrise slid right into my studio,
as it peeked through my drapes.
The rays of light bounced off my work table,
as I grabbed my camera to share with you.
There is nothing like true sunlight
that sparkles and glimmers in a magical way
A fresh day with so many projects to do
but taking time enjoy the peaceful moment that surrounds me.
 May your Sunday quiet your mind
 May your Sunday refresh your soul
 Taking this time to be thankful and grateful
Wishing all of you a blessed day.

Simple Collections of the Chipped & Worn

 Simple collections of 
the chipped and worn
 More are in the making...
 I found some time to create
after we returned home from a trip to Illinois
Long flights and tight schedules
were not on my stress free journey
but quality family time was!
This tiny silk portrait was all I brought back.
Just one quick trip to one antique store was all we needed.
It's never good when you walk in an antique store
and people walking out say "we bought all the good stuff"
We spent most the time keeping warm & cozy by the fire
(it's still so cold in the Midwest)
and indulging in many many card games.
Warm memories once again.
That's what is new with moi!
