Inspiration for blogging can Come from anything!

Browsing a couple of my favorite blogs today I came across this challenge in the Stampington & Company, somerset place blogging website! ...

The challenge is to simply write a caption for Dottie Angels picture ... Which took me somewhere around 2.2 seconds to identify as hers.. Lol

Well... I put in my best Tif Fussell thinking hat, and Made it into a journal jotting ... I shall meander over there And try to get the courage to proclaim this is the funniest ...sweetest stand on your soapbox ....err blur cooler,.... bench Monday ... Post ever!! Thanks for joining me!

-She stood for sunny skies..
Warm summer showers..
Billowing Turquoise Sundresses..
And the slight chance that a Rainbow
Just might show up!!

Yes ...I make art...!!

Every where I go lately I meet the most wonderfully nice people ! It seems this group of like minded, positive thinking people always seem to gravitate toward each other!!! When the subject of art comes up... I seem the corners of their eyes light up!!!... They say "oh! you are an artist! I once knew someone who could________ "..... And then the story begins... This artist shares her story freely ... And it is always interesting to see how we
are connected in some way! I love it!!
This is what I have been making lately.. A paintbrush art piece for Donna Downy studios she is collecting them for a studio display! ... A Fan for my hot flashes ... And lots of paintings which I will post soon ! ... That's it for now! Yes... I make art !! Hee hee -be happy!! It feels good!! ---Vanessa

Laying down in a bed of roses!

I love my bed ... I really do.. It's full of soft fluffy blankets ... A ton of pillows (6)!!!!! Crisp and smooth Ralph Lauren sheets ...And the mattress is like a cloud...!!!
They say you spend one third of your life in this sweet sanctuary ...
So why not make it blissful! ... It's a bit on the Girly side, but hubby says he doesn't care, as long as he gets to be by me!! Xxoo
Yep... Love my bed!! .....

Top reasons to have a Screen porch

I love Living in the screen porch... And this Beautiful weather to enjoy! It's peaceful..no Mosquitos .... The fan gives it a perfect breeze...I can see three bird baths .... It has the most comfortable napping couch..And hear the birds sing!
The hummingbirds and butterflies play right outside the door..
And besides all that.. the colors just make me happy... Happy summer to you all!!

remember to wake up each day and choose to be positive !! It's a conscious decision ! Xxoo
