I am taking a break! I am making paper hat ornements to take to Thea's for Christmas. I haven't made these this year but did a lot for the store"Urbino" I enjoy making paper anything....these are made from old Opera libretos. I think I'll make some cones with the large print pieces. What I would like to do is get this computer figured out so I can download more than one picture. I send this out to the universe........question...... Is there a better blog spot than google? I see other blogs that don't seem to have my problems. I guess I should email everyone I know seeing as no reads this blog!!!!!!!! SIGH!!!!

pumpkins on porches

I do love this time of year. The colors seem to glow from within! The fireplace is ready to be set ablaze. It is hard t o imagine Linda and Ludmil in Texas in 80 degree weather. I will say ,it is harder to get out from under the covers and Eva my fat cat is curled under them with me.

The garden is being cleaned layer by layer. There is still amazing color from the asters, hardy cyclamens, and the last of the hollyhocks. The roses are still budding but our friend the deer is feasting on the last of the buds. When I am up at night I hope to catch a glimpse of him or them but haven't as of yet. I can tell when "she" has been in the yard. The squirrels are fast digging up the plants I have just planted. I guess the ground is softer there. Smart and lazy little buggers. the wild finches and the blue jays are cleaning the seed out of the giant sunflowers. Yes, the garden is changing seasons.

I love seeing the pumpkins and ghosts come out onto the front porches. I am packing fun little bags for the gouls and princesses. The weather looks as if it will be chilly so costumes will be hidden under warm coats. The memories! Jason was a ghost for more years than I want to remember. White sheets are hard to come by now. Cut some eyes add a tie and there you have it. Jessica was a gypsy[moms scarves and jewelery]. Andrew was power rangers[green] I remember fondly.
I hope to get a gallery on this sweet little blog. In the midst of all this gardening and remenissing I am busy working and creating. I am taking things to Thea's in the Pearl and Christmas must be completed soon.

the learning curve

I am so glad Andrew is coming for awhile to help with the blog changes. It was so nice to pick up a copy of creative blogging and hear that others have challenges with the computer. One such
blogger could have been my comp-uter soul sister. It was so good to know I am not alone.

I will be taking things to Barn House this week. I Love all my old comrades. Not doing very many shows and travelling has me out of touch.
I love looking at my England pictures. I am going to attempt to add some here. I am also learning to use spell check. Oh my gosh am I bad!

So much to learn..... so much I want to do.

Home again

Well I am glad to be home. My heart i s still in England. I realized my love of all things English. I must have beenthere in " some" life. It was so like Oregon. I remember feeling as if I had come home when we moved here. The gardens we not at ther peak but David and I could and recognize and picture in ou r mind's eyethe it would be with things in bloom. It is wonderfull without the throngs of tourists.

Iam so anxious to get my pictures into my computer. We found "The Withies Inn" and had lunch there. It , like so many inns and pubs have been refurbished. Having been there 25 yrs. ago......so many things the same.......so many things changed. Alot more cars. That is another time. At least we surrived the left hand driving, roundabouts and the hedgerows. Again another time.

Fall is truely here. My favorite time of year. Iwill be getting ready for the sale at Barn House

found " The Withies Inn" again. It has been refreshed and renewed like so many of the inns and pubs. Oh the age of things. The energy of time and people passed is so evident
