There are only a few remnants of Christmas that remain.
A blue poinsettia...
loving memories that will live on until Christmas comes again.
Hope all of you have some remnants to enjoy as well. God Bless and Have a Very Happy New Year!

Some of the cards will be handmade... others will hold notes and letters...and a few will have photos enclosed. All our special.
At this busy time of the year it is nice to know that someone is thinking of you and takes time to tell you so.

and best of all the Christmas story ... the good news...."Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." Luke 1: 11 (NIV)
May all of you enjoy this beautiful month! God Bless!

In the evenings I enjoy sitting down with a small sketch book and just doodling with whatever catches my fancy. Sometimes I draw from my imagination, other times from a photo. Most always though I use one of these pens to work out ideas or to write a few notes on a page.
Hope you will share your favorite sketching tool.
Have a blessed day!

Naturally I gently restored her to her warm nesting place. The wheelbarrow can
provide this sweet one with shelter when winter makes it's visit. For certain I will sleep better knowing she is protected from the cold.
Besides who can resist something this sweet!
Doing just a few final fall sketches in my journal. This weekend put most of the remaining leaves down. Perhaps now we can finish up raking what has held on til the end of the season.
Praying everyone keeps safe as tornadoes and high winds make their way over the mid west today and tonight. Take care my friends!

Baked apples are a delicious dessert that can be prepared and enjoyed in less than an hour.
The ingredients are easily found.
Four apples (I used Ida Reds)...peeled and cored. 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 1 tsp. of nutmeg mixed together...1/2 cup of apple juice (cider is much better) heated and four tsp. of butter is all that is needed.
Thank you letting me share this simple dish. Hope you have a blessed day!

Planting bulbs this past week end had me dreaming of those little jewels that will blossom after winter's demise.
Warm yellows and cool purples make me wistful for those early harbingers that mark the season of renewal. They bring such cheer.
So as autumn slides into winter I will keep some spring in my heart. Hope you do too! Have a wonderful day.

They lack the brilliance of bright yellows and deep reds but they make November's visit very special.
Hope you take some time to enjoy this month's palette. Have a great day!

From a far it looked rather spooky.
one could see it wasn't moving.
Was it a trick?
No its a treat!
A giant mushroom waiting to be found.
Hope there are no tricks and only treats for you. Happy Halloween!

He is four years my junior. Growing up that made me big sister and in charge. I was responsible for keeping him safe and out of trouble. Unfortunately at times that was beyond my capabilities. Certainly under my tutelage he learned many things. Perhaps not all of them were beneficial.
take a hike...
or go sled riding.
Shared memories are always the best and I am so glad I have a great brother to share mine.
So glad you took a moment to stop by. God Bless!
Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail. My friend Debra Smith at monniebeanfolkart.blogspot.com surprised me with this ...
We are so glad you stopped to visit. We've just been informed that these are the "Dog Days of Summer". Why would that be...
The garden in June is always a treat. Peonies unfold and dance in the breeze... Irises too! ...
