Beautiful Summer Colors

Even though I have a
Tornado ravaged yard
this year
I have a patch of
beautiful perennials that
still have managed to
hang on.
It cheers me to look
at all of the beautiful summer
colors and be able to make
a little arrangement like
this even though my garden
is very far from being an
award winning one this year.
I'm happy for what I
still have!

A Very Special Gift From My Friend

All of the gorgeous art work above
was done by my extremely
talented & gifted friend Susan.
We made books for each other and
had a great visit while exchanging
them the other afternoon.
When I look at Susan's art I am
inspired to keep going and to
create more.
I love my book and will
cherish it forever!
I do wish Sue would
start her own blog and share
her talent and
wonderful ideas with all of you.
Maybe Some Day !
Thank you Susan !!!
