for your kind comments about the slippery barrette.
- Love the colors of your flower garden - the deep green against the red is just beautiful. Wonderful capture of the house. Lighting is excellent.
- Don't your cats use the pointed top to lean against and groom their ears and faces? Mine would never have been able to resist
Congrats on finishing the list!!! Your shoes look so comfy - very appealling. And nice detail on all.
- Thanks for the info about ink/watercolor. I've never tried it, but hope to someday. Intriguing the differences that you suggest depending on which you start with.
Yummy bag of chips. Makes me hungry. Excellent fan, and congrats on finishing the hunt again!
When I read your comment about your barrette with roses, it made me think that somewhere I have one too. Was yours little porcelain roses in a row, glued on the barrette? That's how I remember mine (I think anyway). But it has been years since I've seen it... Must be here somewhere unless it went the way of one of my donation boxes. It seems like they were being sold in the '70's or maybe the '80's? Looked so pretty. Never stayed in my hair for more than 5 seconds. It was so heavy and my hair (below my waist back then) was so slippery that it would just race down like a skier in an Olympic downhill. So it became a museum piece in a hurry. Pretty but completely useless
- Cool groups. Especially love the shoes. The wave across one set, and the criss-crosses of another look neat.
- Good work on your hands.
- Best wishes preparing for the journey. I was wondering the same thing as Ai about your gallery???
- I'm not sure - it just was one of those things. I miss my Mom so much since she died, and have really had trouble getting through the days without her to talk to and care for. And when I saw the sketch of your grammie's sewn rose, all kinds of memories about my grandma and my Mom were right there. They both had beautiful flower gardens, including a rose garden. They both were really good with a sewing machine. And I know my grandma used to embroider little flowers and roses on linens, though I only have one or two from those days. And I think my Mom may have too, but there are none existing any more to prove that to me. I don't know - your image just brought all that back I guess. How precious the time is, how quickly it is all gone except the fleeting bits of memories about days we never even knew.....
