October sky

I am a fan of Silk Baron's dupioni silks.  The excellent array of colors are scrumptious and delectable.  This beauty is call October Sky.  Check them out at and don't forget to register for free fabric.

Garden Green

From my own tomato vine, some small tomatoes have ripened and we used them in a salad today.  My first of the season!  Of course I bought this pot last month when it had alot of tiny green babies and a bunch more flowers.  In a pot with a trellis.  How easy is that?  They were very yummy.  I don't care how red the store tomatoes are, they still don't taste the way a home grown one does!

Big Win!

My husband won a jackpot recently on his favorite Monopoly slot.  A thirty cent bet for $430!  He hit a bonus and free spins to go around the board.  All aboard the money train!

Trees and Bluebells

 My recent Watercolor effort.  It's a practice piece from a step by step instruction book.  I liked the textured look on the tree trunks achieved by building up alot of dry brushing.  Not too bad for my first painting in a really long time!
