All in a Row...

Fridays seem to come up so fast - where did the week go?  On my way out to take my morning walk, I snapped a quick photo of the hats hanging in the laundry room.

Being a quilter, this is NOT the type of patchwork I like working on.  Why is it that behind every picture there is at least 2 holes - sometimes more?!

Taking apart my studio, repairing the walls, etc. is the biggest job of  our upcoming move.  I'll be so glad when this is over.

All Zipped Up...

I have discovered many forgotten things while clearing out my studio.

For example, I found a jumble of colorful zippers in the bottom of one drawer.  What could have possessed me to buy so many zippers?!  They are going into the "Garage Sale" pile.  (Don't ask me how many I put aside "just in case.")

Here comes the bride...

It's almost impossible to walk the beach on Saturday night without witnessing at least one beach wedding.  The brides are always beautiful and so happy!

Hunting and Gathering...

My dining room is the staging area for my upcoming garage sale.  I've found an amazing amount of stuff in cabinets, drawers, nooks and crannies that I haven't used in awhile or cannot use in our new home.  In a couple of weeks, these things will be stacked out in the garage - thank goodness I have some friends who have offered to help out.

The addition of several different filters in Photoshop Elements and/or Topaz Labs make my things look almost too good to sell.

Mother's Day

It seem fitting that on Mother's Day morning I found evidence of sea turtle's tracks coming up on the beach to lay eggs.

I think these are her tracks coming up on the beach.

This may be the nest - I'm definitely not an expert!  I didn't want to get too close and disturb anything.

I think these are her tracks leading back to the bay.  (Topaz filter added to original photo.)

Happy Mother's Day!

I have been so busy packing that keeping up with my blogs has not been on my mind.  I grabbed my camera and snapped a quick photo of what was in front of me.  What things are on your desktop?

Boxed In...

I'm addicted to the smell of corrugated cardboard!  I'm obsessed.  Everyday I find myself on the prowl for more boxes.  Will I ever have enough?   If you see me hanging around Walgreens Liquor Stores, please know that I am there for the boxes NOT the booze - although the booze might be a way to calm me down.  This move is stressing me out.
