Isn't this a wonderful card? My dear friend Janet sent it to me. She is a wonderful artist and such a really good friend. I think we have been blogging together for at least 3 or 4 years now and I have so enjoyed watching her Art change. Her journals are amazing and I wish I could be as dedicated as she is about working in my journal every day. Thanks Janet for making my day!
Wow, our weather has been amazing! We had a record breaking week-end with very abnormally cool temperatures. It felt like Fall here and we LOVED it. I don't ever remember being able to open our windows in the middle of July. We are usually in the mid to upper 90s and 100% humidity by this time of year. I woke up yesterday morning to hear my Mom's furnace going. Ha, they are pretty cold natured and she got really chilled and turned on the heat. Its suppose to be nice like this most of this week and some more rain coming in tomorrow night.
Mom and I started some more Party pickles yesterday. They are a 4 day process. They are so pretty as we use food coloring to make them red and green. Here are a few jars that we have already made. We have about 14 jars now but we are giving away a lot of them as Christmas presents.
They have a spicy, sweet taste to them. And even though they take 4 days to make they are not that hard to make. I also made some more Watermelon rind pickles. I think they are pretty too but they don't show up so pretty in the picture.
They are actually transparent looking in person. You also put thin lemon slices in with them too. They are really sweet and yummy. I have really enjoyed putting up veggies and pickling this summer. My kitchen floor is a mess and I am going to strip it and polish it after I have finished pickling.
I have been doing some art lately. I am in a ATC bird swap, a tag swap, and a charm swap. Below is a picture of my Bird ATCs.
I don't know why I can't scan any thing straight. My scans always come out crooked. I will post my other art projects on another day.
If you saw my post last week where I showed off where I sit and blog and play on my computer, then I have to show you what I saw while I have been sitting here blogging today.
I have a bird feeder and a silverware and beads windchimes on the big tree in front of my window. This little guy was sitting on top of the windchimes patiently waiting to get to the feeder.
I hope every one had a great week-end and hope you have a wonderful Monday too!
