Forever in our Hearts

My partner recently lost her grandma, she was an adopted grandma for the past 40 years. We got a chance to visit her this past July and this was the last picture taken of the two of them. Miss Virginia was one the most real, kind, straight forward and loving women you will ever know. She passed away on her terms and in her sleep at the age of 83. She will be missed.

I hope she would be pleased with the page in my journal book that is just dedicated to you little lady.

Fly any where...

Just finished this page this week and wanted to share it with you. Back in 2004, a few weeks after my divorce, I woke up with the sounds of Canadian Geese flying overhead. With my faithful dog, Sophie, by my side I started to cry, I knew from that day forward, without a shadow of a doubt, I would be fine. I could now start my life as I wanted to, as I saw fit, I could now reinvent myself. I love the spring and fall when the geese fly by my house honking. They remind me that life is short so love, laugh and be happy.

Smudge Pot

This was a find! Mom and I were on our way home when we saw smudge pots for sale, only $5.00...ok, we had to stop and see what they looked like. When we drove up to the orchard, there must have been 40 of those pots just sitting there. Some very burnt and sad, some were good enough to bring home. So we picked up a couple and sent them to be sand blasted. They looked so much better after the sand blasting. Now the question is what do we paint on it? We saw some of these pots painted a while ago at the Rogue Valley International Airport . Some were painted with a pear orchard theme. (Which is where these came out of) Thought I would go to the Internet and see how other people painted their pots. You know, I could only find just a few, just a hand full....ok, you know what this means....HELP! ;o) Guess I will have to figure out something fun. If you have any ideas, I will listen....
