In Charlotte

Well today was windy and rainy and pretty miserable actually. It was so windy I had to go buy some more tent stakes. Then all we could get set up was the tent. It was toooo windy to put the sides on. And the wind would blow the walls over. So two hours we were soggy, coldContinue reading “In Charlotte”

Port Warwick Show

Well I am back from the Port Warwick show. For the past two years this has been my best show. This year unfortunately did not continue the trend.

Celebrating Fall

I wrote this a couple of years ago after walking around in the sunny fall woods taking photographs. I actually did a six picture mixed media series off of it, most of which has sold now. But I found it on my computer and since these are the first few cool days of the incomingContinue reading “Celebrating Fall”

Bloomingstacker of the Day

Bloomingstacker of the Day-#39 Cute, quiet and charming, this Bloomingstacker is a perfect little gentleman. He attends his duties most diligently but always saves enough time to wander among and admire the flowers. He is looking forward to having a home of his own to take care of and a family to give him his name.

Bloomingstacker of the Day-#38 This Bloomingstacker is always up for a little fun. But don’t let his hat fool you. He is slightly shy and can sometimes be found hiding behind a stray leaf or two. He has a subtle sense of humor and enjoys sitting around telling stories. One of his favorite stories to inventContinue reading “Bloomingstacker of the Day”
