EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

I KNOW....SHAME ON ME!!!

I KNOW....I've been playing hooky!!! ....is that how you spell it?! Sorry I haven't been blogging, but thanks to some sweet followers that were worried about me, I feel I must catch you up with what I'm doing!......NOT MUCH......still resting and taking breaks from teaching ....... doing my garden, reading a lot now with my new glasses, fooling around with some jewelry making, more gardening, little league baseball, a little boy's fractured wrist .... jumping out of a swing at school .... OUCH!!!! ... getting ready for all my children and grandchildren coming in a few weeks!!! We are also working on "Roma's House" ...... which used to be a condemned house that became a dream for a family ..... a few pictures I will make a blog about later ...... BUT honestly, I have just been happily lazy and resting and doing ONLY what I WANT to do .... just pleasing me ........ a rare thing, but feels wonderful! I will try to add some pictures just for interest ..... as soon as I do something more interesting, I'll blog ..... I promise. I will paint again, I promise. Here are some photos of our little B&B guest house and one of the garden from a distance.....my vegetables are beside the little garden shed.....just small plants so far.....and my zinnias are beginning to come up. Have a GREAT week!!! And a cup of coffee on the porch with the birds!!! Let some mud squish between your toes...... remember that?! May God Bless You All .... whether you like it or not!....Love yal....

Oh, Sherry, it's so tempting to imagine us all together...Enjoying your beautiful surroundings and making a bit of art...and talking and laughing...and feeling sorry for everyone who wasn't there...OK, just a little bit...
LOL!
Mystele looks like a card trick. I visited her blog and that woman's got stories to tell - I just know it!
Gotta go visit Nelda's next...
