Time for Reflection

Thanksgiving is time to reflect on things we appreciate in life.  So today as I start the baking the pumpkin and apple pies, memories of cooking with my mom and my aunts. They taught me how to cook and at the same time taught me the value of being creative. Recipes were invented, written down, and traded.  The kitchen was also the place to be creative with sewing and painting. We used the counter to spread out the materials of whatever we were working on and just set to work.

This past week I discovered some new bulbs sprouting in my garden under the studio window.  I wonder how long it will take for them to show their blooms.

 And here's a peek at some little star boxes that I painted up for Christmas presents. Love the prim designs by Donna Atkins. I'm not sure who these will be for, but it's sure nice to have them done.

    I love the little boxes.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I appreciate it even more when visitors leave a comment too.
