turkey talk

stuff it or dress it?
baste it or inject it?
bake it or fry it?
white meat or dark?
giblets in your gravy?
cranberry sauce or relish?
pie or cake?
I already have a belly ache

message on a wing

Susanna Gordon, artist, painter, woman with BIG HEART, started a project called "Winged Messengers" By request she would mail you a set of her handpainted wings...these messages were to be placed in random locations to be discovered by someone unknown. All she asked for in return was a photo and maybe a reason why you chose the location to place your secret message. So I carried my camera and wings in my car and like a little kid hiding Easter eggs all afternoon for my brothers AFTER the Easter Bunny, I searched for uninvited places to land! I love to leave secret messages, love notes and random acts of kindness. So when she gave me two sets, I decided to carry one with me for photo opportunities. And the other I left behind at my local Thrift Store for the volunteers who works so hard, with very little appreciation. It felt so good to give back, in a magical invisible way!!

jumping for joy

I love my time here in Merritt Island, Florida with my Mom and Jack. After a fun day of ransacking my Moms stash of t-shirts, I sewed up three different skirts, and this is the one who asked for a trip to the beach. How could I resist? So I gathered up my camera and tripod, took the 5 minute drive and had some fun.

grandcanines and felines

a quick trip to Virginia and DC with my son, daughter-in-law, ex hubby and his wife was a happy reunion for us all. Those furry grandkids of mine, Tugg, Dixie and Emma are pretty damn cute!

Happy Birthday Matt

Today I celebrate the life of Matt...and all that he is. He makes my smile larger than I ever thought my face could hold. He sings me to sleep. He cooks dinner for me when I want to keep sewing after dark. He works hard everyday with blood and sweat to keep us afloat. He always helps me to laugh when I prefer to pout! He dances me until the band plays last call. He loves me at the end of every day. And I love him until the end of time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATTHEW!
