Circle around it.

Works in progress.
I have never done circles before so I am experimenting.
I think I will attache them to 12 by 12 canvass. 
 I love the colors and will be embellishing them  more.
Another day of the Studio open house than
time to enjoy the holidays with my family.
We quit  the gift giving many years ago and
instead we ask people with no family left to join us
for Christmas day.
I really look forward to Christmas now.
I never know how many we will have.
My grown children have the option to add people.
Even as late as Christmas eve.
Have a great week-end.

William Mark, William John, William Craig, and William Thomas
Grandfather, great grandfather, father and son.
My mother was in the kitchen.
5 generations in the house at one time.
Really a day of thanksgiving.
The best dinner of them all.
What more could I ask for.
Except the leftover stuffing for breakfast.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving

Yesterday morning I drove to the back of the pond
and found a tree full of Juncos.
I am so thankful to live is such a place of beauty.
Enjoy your day with family.
I am off to bake a apple pie to bring.

 Round and round.
I am trying some circle themes.
These need more done to them.
I do not find them very challenging.
My husband says there is a buyer for everything.
Some one  asked if our house was still for sale.
What a sobering thought to pack up and move.
I just got my studio the way I like it.
The house smells good again today.
3 cheese cake are baking in the oven.
Pumpkin, chocolate and vanilla.
I need to make a apple pie in the morning
and then we are set for Thanksgiving.

White Barn

Saturday's open house was a success.
Some of my favorite pieces of art went home with good friends.
I am going to the studio to make some more cards.
It is a beautiful sunny day here in Indiana
and a perfect day to catch up.
My grandson is here from MD  with his son so
maybe a catch a little family time too.
Have a great day.
The framed photograph of the white barn is still available.
Another one of my favorites.

Golden glow

Remembering the color this fall.
Have a nice quiet Sunday.
I will. Thanksgiving dinner with my mother at Oak Grove.
90th Birthday party with my friend Doris.
Than the rest of the day with my husband of 49 1/2 years.
