Just A Girl
I hope you all had a beautiful Easter! I know we did! Here are a few pictures I took. We went over to my daughters boyfriends parents house. These pictures were taken at their beautiful home. We had such a great time with them as always, and all the food was delicious! What a fun day! That is our daughter Kathryn and my husband Raymond. Loved that picture of them....the cool looking plant is called Euphorbia wulfendii. I gave that plant to Joan two years ago when we went to their house for Easter, and look at it now! It came from another plant I have just like it at my mailbox, but mine doesn't look like this! The pretty centerpiece was on one of the tables and the other pictures were taken in the pink outdoor room. I just love how Joanie decorates and I just had to share them with you all!
I just finished "Just A Girl" last night. It has been a few days since I have worked on any ART, and I was ready to play around again. Credits to my friends Nancy Baumiller, Artsy Fartsy Queen, and Becky F, for the borders, dress from Land of Nod, crown from The Glass Beehive. Quote from Coco Chanel. The quote reminded me of me as a girl trying to be classy wearing my Moms perfume and jewelry to school! I was only in elementary school!! She had no idea I did that, until years later, and we still laugh about it. She had these dangly gray rhinestone earrings and this really cool paisley shaped broach, that she still has today....and I wore the earrings one day...I imagine my teachers wondered where I got such fancy jewelry since I was probably like 7 or 8 years old LOL!! It's a wonder we didn't lose everything. Damn lucky for me I didn't! Now there is no telling what those costume jewelry pieces are worth now.
The Cherry trees are in full bloom in the yard, and I have stuff popping up new everyday! Just yesterday I was leaving to go run some errands and I have this pot by the driveway with a Hosta in it. I noticed just the tip of it trying to pop up, and when I got home there were two points popping up! What the heck? I guess if I had sat there long enough watching, I mighta seen it break through the dirt! Hope you all have a sunny day!
