Art field trip









My wonderful teacher friend, Annalei, (pictured center)took me to visit her artist friends, Eddie and Carolyn. Carolyn paints. Eddie is a woodcarver. My friend Anneli took me to their exotic home and I relished each piece they showed me. I will share a few pieces with you here. But all I can say is I loved the experience far and above what I can describe for you. It was an honor to meet these truly lovely people. I hope you enjoy.



Isn't this kissing mother endearing?

This is the most magnificent wood carving. Really an inspiring piece. Nice aura.























You are jealous, no? I can hardly impart what a fun time it was..really.

April's Chocolat Mouse


We had a little dinner party on Sunday. Our friends came over and brought their kids. We have two kids. Well, I still brought out my fine china, silver and set a fabulous table. It was so Mingle. Anyway, my darling friend, April, brought dessert. Chocolat Mouse that she made from scratch, mind you. But see these glasses? They belonged to her mother-in-law. Our friends last name is Irelan. You get the picture. These babies tasted as luscious as they look.

January Posting




Spring is on the way. I am so happy because that means I might possibly be living in a house we just opened escrow on, and drum rollllllll.......adopting a son. Whew. Yeah. He's pretty amazingly neat.



















My older son convinced us to add on. He is a wonderful big brother. I will keep you posted.


Here is a picture I drew. My son's teacher opens her home and teaches a group of us how to use pastels. We have fun and she is very gracious.















My obsession with Jess Brown dolls led me to create my own. I can't pay 200 bucks for a rag doll, not with a good conscience and a sewing machine. So here is mine sitting pool side. She's waiting for hair, makeup and wardrobe. I just love her.








Lastly, I met a pretty interesting gal. Lynn makes upcycled journals from books she picks up from every stinkin where. She's a teacher/writer/world traveler. These are a few journals I picked up from her. If you need one, let me know. The background is a very lush
bedspread I got at a garage sale for 20 bucks.




That is another post....xoxo, juls
