This is a photo of one of my friend Cathies' creations. She does some very amazing things with shells as well as other things like mosaics, stained glass, paintings and who knows what she'll come up with . It's a fortunate thing we that we are friends as this town is so small and almost culture starved. She always gives me inspiration to keep doing art. Love you girl!! check out.. this girls art. Its a fun blog to visit.

Blizzard Of The North

I have been scanning photos for my family on facebook and came across this photo of my dog that I had when I lived in Door county wisconsin. He was the sweetest dog ever and has been gone now for quite some time and is in doggy heaven. I had to move back to Chicago for awhile and I felt sad for him since he was a country dog so I gave him to my friend Nila who lived in the woods, because he would be happier. There he lived his life out in a place more suitable to his nature. I will always miss him!

My Recent Additions

I recently got some new furnishing for the living room but now I am undecided about what color to paint the walls. I was thinking maybe a sage green or maybe a sand. The color thats on the wall now has been there for at least 15 years and I have grown tired of it even though it shows off the rich tones of the woodwork which is all original from 1912. Amazingly when I first painted them I noticed that there was only two coats of paint on them. Hard to belive , but then the original owner lived here till he died and there was only one other owner after him. If any of you out there have an idea for a color I would appreciate the input. The work on the house is on hold until the new door is delivered and the new fence which is vinyl, because it won't rot , can't be installed till spring. All in all it should be nice to have a fence thats not falling down. I have been working on a painting for my nephew and have to get another done for my grandaughter. I am not sure what I'll paint for her something with flowers I think. peace to you all... Laura
