A little more Art.

Gee, I am doing pretty good here.  It's only been a week and I am posting again.  I am really trying to get better about it too.  I do have more to blog about now that my Sweet Granddaughter is in my life.  She sure keeps me and her Mommy pretty busy.  But I really can't imagine not having her in my life now.  I sure enjoy the snuggle time that her and I have in the mornings.  We let Mommy sleep in since Larriyah doesn't sleep to good at night.  They go and spend some time in Nashville with other family and the first day it's pretty nice having some solitude.  But after two days I am ready for that Sweetie to come back home.  But I know one day they will leave and start their own home.  But Kalyn has promised that I can keep Larriyah as much as I want too.  
So, I did a few pieces of Art this past week.  Another Zendala for the challenge at The Bright Owl.   I don't think I am going to keep doing that challenge though.  They pretty much stick to legitimate "Zentangle" patterns.  I am a renegade and like to design them the way I want too.  So,,I may just have to "challenge myself.
I really enjoy doing the Zendalas.  So I may just use the templates, and do my own thing.  I guess if I don't post them on FB or Pinterest I will not get in trouble. LOL.   I did see on Pinterest(what an addicting site) a Zentanglish,,or a Zendoodle that someone did on an old book page.  I thought it was pretty cool and had to give it a try.  I have a very old book and the pages are falling out of it. It's called "Weeds and Useful Plants"  it would probably be worth some $ if they pages were not falling out.  Copy right date of 1865?  Almost 150 years old.  Guess that's why the pages are falling out.  Here are the two pages that I did.
The flower page above has a small tear in the paper on the right side.  But I still like it.  I just have to be careful of bearing down hard on that thin of paper. I just love flowers and nature and I can't seem to make myself do the more complicated tangles.  I guess I need to practice on them a little more.  I think what I do is actually zendoodling.  Which is a little bit of doodling and tangling.  But that's what I enjoy the most.
Well, that and being outside playing with my flowers,,,I Love doing that too.  Guess that's why I have flowers and insects always on my brain.  Here are a few pics from the garden and my flower beds.

And last week we had some Skies that looked like this below.

Which caused this to happen.

And did we really some rain!  It had been a while.  Of course I have to add a few pictures of  my Sweet Lala  before I end this post.  Her and Mommy are coming home today and I can't wait to see my Little Sugar Pie!

I hope all my friends in Blogger Land are doing well.  I will try to visit as much as I can this week.  Have an awesome week!!!

All your zentangles/doodles look great. I really like the flower page. I have a few very old books like that. They are first editions by Mark Twain but they're falling apart so aren't worth much.

Your little Sweetie Pie looks so cute!

You have put in a lot of time on these sentageles/ pretty. I love old book pages, somehow they give the new with the old, and I love the smell of a old book.
Now these picture of the baby and you are really special. What a charmer, they do steel our hearts. Love to love! Mary

You do a wonderful job on the Zentangles! Love seeing your flowers, too! And of course, your sweet and beautiful grandbaby! Doing better than me with blogging. I have such good intentions.

Since today is Halloween, I'm sharing a little poem with everyone today...

This is Halloween

Goblins on the doorstep,
Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches' gate posts,
Giving stare for stare.

Cats on flying broomsticks,
Bats against the moon,
Stirring round of fate-cakes,
With a solemn spoon.

Whirling apple parings,
Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing,
Up and down the streets.

Jack-o'-lanterns grinning,
Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter--
This is Halloween!

Happy Halloween, dear Beth, make sure you come by my blog today for my Halloween Bash and see what costume I dressed you up in! hehe xoxo
