Can you believe we got the first apples of the season in our farm share last week? Just like that, it is turning to Fall and the forecast is talking about 40 degree weather possibilities here later this week.
And with that change comes school days and the opening of the door to new possibilities. Where are you headed in the coming months?
Wrapping up a very active summer with a tropical escape and feeling very grateful for the time my husband and I had with our growing teenagers last week. Lots of laughs and new things to see, as well as time to just "be" without any obligations, was a gift for us all.
Gearing up for the start of another school year, thinking of you all, and hoping you are finding time to create the things you love.
Well hello there :) I hope you hve been well and happy and enjoying your days.
I was lucky enough to be able to work on some sets for our local communtiy theaters' summer camp show clled "The Gypsy King". The assignment was to paint a gypsy cart and I was supplied with drawings to work from. It really was fun and quite a whirlwind as I have had boatloads of sewing work this summer as well. Full days of sewing and painting and driving teens to various activities has been a gift and I am happy to have the work.
Here are some shots of the work in progress in my garage.
The wheels are cut out seperately and mounted on top to try for a more 3d effect.
This will be the front door of the wagon while the large flat will face the audience, this piece is at a bit of an angle.
These are the shutters that will be attached later. Another 3d effect that worked out quite well!
I wish I had been able to take photos while everything was joined and on stage, but at least you can get an idea of the final outcome with these photos.
A day late and a dollar short as my mom would say ;) Happy 4th of July America and to all who celebrated yesterday. We took a spntaneous trip into Boston for an overnight and the cities' fireworks show. Good call dad :)
Reflection of the city and flag in my sunglasses! Very creative photo courtesy of my daughter. Nice picture Mini ;)
Sorry to have been absent here for a bit. The end of the school year always seems to move at a pace that I don't recognize until it starts to slow down again. Then I step back and marvel that 4, 6, 8 weeks have passed. Kind of like the rest of life really..........time flying past while you try to keep the important moments straight in your memory.
Thought I'd stop in quick and share a beach photo from a day with the family on Cape Cod. A welcome break and a beautiful sunny day. *sigh*
I wish you all both of these in your coming days :)
