One of my college friends is an artist who paints from the heart. She took a simple photo of mine and presto… it became a beautiful painting. You can find Sandy’s paintings at Sandy Donn on Etsy and she writes a beautiful blog filled with her paintings and her feelings about them. Sandy’s Blog I […]
My grandmother had a love of everything New Orleans. She and my grandfather’s best friend lived in NOLA and they visited him many times throughout the years. I think my grandmother loved antique shopping there more than anything and my favorite little table came from there. I also love New Orleans. I love the architecture; […]
On our recent stay in London we lodged at The Arch Hotel which is just two blocks from The Arch. Great location and great staff at this smaller boutique hotel. Of course I found this picture in the hotel sitting room right off the bat. Have to love the simplicity of this art. Made us feel right […]
Found this really cute coffee food truck at an art festival in Montana. Very cute graphics. I love food trucks which not only have great food, but they usually have fun art also. What’s not to love when you combine red, horseshoes and puckered lips! Love the catchy slogan!
Growing up I used to visit my grandmother in New Mexico. She was Dean of Women at New Mexico State University. We traveled to see our “Momo” every summer and those times are filled with very happy memories. She was a wonderful grandmother and our times were treasured when visiting New Mexico. New Mexico holds […]
We had a wonderful Father’s Day with Son #1 and Son #2 and their families. It is always such a blessing when we can get everyone together at one time. The four kiddos had such much fun with their two days of cousin fun and we enjoyed watching their sweet little faces filled with lots […]
This is a really cute vintage “ghost sign” I found last fall. Vintage ghost signs or old advertisements on old buildings are hard to find, but when I find one it is so exciting. This fall I really do hope to take a road trip through tiny little towns and locate these old signs on […]
In early spring Cowboy and I went to a small town festival. There was a man there who had a cute monkey that he had traveled with for decades. What I loved was his vintage sign. It looks like something I would envision having been in the 40s or 50s. Very cool sign and very […]
My dear friend painted this fabulous landscape. Isn’t is spectacular? I love the starkness of the white water against the powerful rocks. You cannot stop studying this oil painting. It simply POPS. Cannot wait to see what she creates next. She is very talented.
I purchased this stunning Montana landscape a few years ago. I love the beautiful earth tones and the content. You cannot find a more beautiful view than this! I have this in my living area and every single time I walk by this painting it gives me that “feel good” feeling you want with anything you put […]
This was a perfect photo for “Wordless Wednesday”. I took this photo in an Amish community not far from Eureka, Montana. How sweet that this family made this precious sign and placed it in the entrance to their home. It would probably do each of us good to add a little simplicity to our lives… […]
One of our friends found this cute cow while driving to Montana. Love this cow! Love that the Kwik Mart is also a gallery! Wow, this would make great farm yard art!! Thanks to M. for sharing this photo.
Son #2 and wife just returned from a wedding on St. John island. They found this wonderful local dive in Coral Bay, St. John U.S. Virgin Islands. It was full of character. It is famous for it’s pizza and Bloody Mary’s. The reviews are great for this little restaurant. Best of all the decor is […]
