It has been a terrific weekend for our May 24 long weekend.  The weather has been so warm that you want to spend all day outside.  I have started to plant my annuals and hope there is not a late frost.  I hope that you are having a great gardening weekend too.   Mary will be hosting Mosiac Monday and I hope that you will join us over at her place.   Have a great week.


Hi Valerie, Love the purple iris, I have one that same color. Could it be one and the same? Have a wonderful weekend:)

What a gorgeous mosaic. The weather is getting warmer here too.

Any work that you find in an Antique book prior to 1923 is copyright free. You are allowed to use the work. On my little packages of bookplates for sale, I include the information of the book I used and the artist's name. There is fascinating history behind many of the artists at the turn of the century.

So nice to meet you. Karen

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
