Silent Saturday ~ Part Twenty five

This is one of the sunrise pictures I promised!  Awesome day too!

Touched by the sun!

Pumpkin love!!!

This is the pumpkin plant I am madly in love with!  The leaves are humongous!!  No pumpkins yet...but when they come...I will be beside myself with happiness!  More pumpkin love...

Remember back in June when I talked (bragged) about my Topsy Turvy Tomato planter.  Well one is still pretty stunted by the cool nights we have been having.  But one is doing pretty well and I thought I would show you!  She even has a couple of tomatoes on her!!  woohoo!!

Tomato Love!!


The sun kisses the skies!

Enjoy this fabulous summer day and get up early and catch the sunrise!!  Don't forget to enter into my giveaway!!  Information HERE!  Drawing will be on August 4th!! 

Have a magical and blessed weekend!

WIP ~ Fiber Sculpture ~ Day Seventeen

This will be a short post!  Just added some embellishments to canvas number one so that it would correlate to canvas number two.  Here is number one...

Here is number two...

Canvas number one is the top and, of course, canvas number two is the bottom.  Gotta go!  Still lots more to do!

Have a magical and blessed day!

P.S.  Top photo is of my early morning sunrise.  Well the moon part of it!  Will show more of the sunrise later.  Spectacular, yes?

Random Tuesday ~~ And all that jazz!!

Well golly gee!!  I have over 100 followers and over 200 posts!!  That should equal a giveaway, don't you think????  I sure do!  So I will!

An original painting from Diane Duda!!!  And it is gorgeous!!  It is painted on a wood panel and is ready to hang!  Signed, of course!  Here is a pic of it....

Isn't she the most adorable??  I just knew I had to have her for my giveaway.   Just one rule...leave a comment and your email address!!  That is it.  You don't have to bring in your sister or brother...don't have to follow me (but I am worth following if I do say so myself)...just one comment.  I will draw the name (yes from a hat) on August 4th!  That is my mom's 82 birthday!!  So we will celebrate this way.  Good luck!

Today is a big day!!  Dr. John and I have been married 36 years today!  How about that?  And we are still the best of friends and I just love him so much!  He is the best!!!!!  Happy Anniversary honey!!

This pic taken New Years' Eve!  Wow!  Have I changed a lot since then!!  Ha!!  Much smaller now!  We will have to take a new photo soon!!

Some one, on the internet, like on a blog...posted this picture.  The photo makes me weak in the knees.  It looks like a painting and I just love it.  I forgot I saved it and I just came across it.  It is gorgeous and here it is....

Isn't it to die for?  Such a precious little whoever took this...let me know??  You took one fabulous picture here!!!  Kudos!!

It has been raining off and on for four days now!  For all of us in New Mexico..that is a gift from heaven!!  We always need rain and this has been wonderful!  My plants are so happy.  I may have tomatoes yet!!  I have three on the vine in my Topsy Turvy Planter.  I will show pics as soon as it stops raining!!  Ha!  Also, wait until you see my pumpkin plant!!  OMG!!  It is HUGE!!

149 pounds and 4 miles a day!!!  I am beginning to impress myself!!  LOL!!  One year and five months ago I couldn't walk down my driveway!  If I went any where that required a lot of walking; we/I used a wheelchair!!!!!!  Walking from the living room to our bedroom I would get so short of breath!!  I have asthma and all that weight made it so much worse!  And now...look at me!!  Wheeeeeeeee!  81 pounds to go!  And I want to add one more mile!  This is totally cool!

I am reading Mary Higgins Clark, "The Shadow of your Smile".  So far, the book has kept my interest.  It is great for an out on the lounge chair, soaking up the sun, book!!

Remember those red shoes from Avon?  Well I have been wearing them a lot!!  And they are 2.5 inch wedge heels.  If you call recall; I was practicing with 2.5 inch heels at the beginning of the year and having all kinds of trouble.  Ha!  Couldn't keep my balance.  Well the wedges and me are doing fine!  No wobble!!!  Sweet!!!!

I think this is enough Randomness this time around!!  Besides, Dr. John and I are going to have a (wild) romantic evening together so I must get ready.  You know...chill the wine...get out some candles....chill the glasses...take a nice long bubble bath...wear that special perfume!!  So much to little time!  Bye for now!

Have a magical and blessed day!
Hugging you

Mind Wide Open ~ The ones I didn't publish!

Thought I would share some of my digital work.  These are ones that didn't make it into the competition.  Usually because I was late getting it done.  So I thought I would share them here. 

Hope you enjoyed the picture show?!  Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Have a magical and blessed day!

Silent Saturday ~ Part Twenty four

The sun is slowly coming up over the mountains.  Filling the sky with it's glory!  Such a spectacular way to start my morning walk.  He always paints such beautiful and powerful pictures.  He greets me!!   I greet Him with respect and awe!

Delicate and wild!  Sharing itself freely with no reservations.  Oh to be able to live such as this!

Reaching for the sun or is that me that has attracted it's attention?

Happily gathered together sharing their finery.  I wonder when the dance starts?

The shy and beautiful Morning Glories!!

The Queen has arrived!  Her ballgown puts others to shame!

The sunflowers have yet to greet the sun.  But it's leaves share some of the secret!!

Greeting our neighbors after our walk!  Cookie and Pie!  Dr. John offers a treat to Pie!

Our walk ends in a blaze of glory!  Thank you for joining me this morning!  Hope you have a magical and blessed weekend!
Hugging you,

WIP ~ Fiber Sculpture ~ Day Sixteen

What a fabulous day today is!!  Sunshine and cooler temps.  Only up to 90 today!  Ha!  And I had a super day in the studio!

I have been adding natural elements to the fiber sculpture and I wanted to share the process with you.  First placement.....

Placement seems static and lacks movement throughout the piece.  So...placement number two...

Much more movement throughout!  I like this placement better.  I will have to let it sit over night and check it in the morning and see if I still feel the same way.

Have much more elements to add so stay tuned.  It will be changing by leaps and bounds now!!  This part is the exciting part!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a magical and blessed day/evening!
Hugging you

It is a wonderful sunny day with just a nice hint of rain. The clouds are slowly moving in and I hope they can deliver. We do need this rain...everything is so dry. And my poor sad tomato plants!! Sigh!! I will show pics sometime later. It really is tragic! Buy anywho...on to the fiber piece! I have added the third tube and started some embellishments. Here are some pics...

Notice the extra folds of on to more stuff!!!  More embellishment!!  Ha!

Have a magical and blessed day!
