Golden Days

Everything Bright and Beautiful has been unfolding since I last posted.  When I saw that Tuesday was my last posting, simply couldn't believe it.  Sweet Friends, I suppose Time magically disappears when I'm fully realizing my passion at the easel.  Am I forgiven?


Hope everybody enjoyed a wonderful weekend.  Saturday, my precious momma turned 76 and hubby and I spent the day recognizing her special day.  There were presents, cake and ice cream, and much heartfelt gratitude and laughter.  All that I am or ever will be, I owe to my momma.  Happy Birthday Sweet One!

Oh and just so you know...after all that celebrating..had to hit the treadmill for a straight 3 mile ride.  Cake sure looks better on the plate than on the hips.  Ha ha
So there you have it Ladies..a small peek into the little corner of my world.  Just wanted to pop in to say hello and to let anyone who may have popped by, know that I'm still here.

Blessings, Love and Sunday Sunshine To All,


P.S.  Before closing I jumped over to check out the latest with a few of my blogging buddies..and boy, what a girl misses by being away for only a few days.  Below is a photo I took on Momma's Birthday wearing a cherished necklace designed by "Kelly Berkey."  She's a Beautiful Lady with such a loving and generous spirit. 
I couldn't resist this sweet necklace which reads:  ARTIST!  Now tell fun is that?

I love the picture of you and your Mom. Two incredibly beautiful women, inside and out (I know if you are what you are because of your Mom, she is a sweetheart, too). Happy, Happy late Birthday to her! Way to go on the treadmill! And, stay with that passion! The paintings are amazing!

Hi sweet Terri,
At first - Happy Birthday for your Mommy!
It is so nice to see you on easel! Can't wait your finished piece:)

Have a wonderful day, darling!

Hi Terri, I'm finally back! I'm going to sit down soon and write you an email (I have a fun macaroni and cheese story to tell you about), but I had to drop in and see what you've been working on AND I love the gardening girl.

This move to Georgia wore me out and I'm still trying to get my bearings straight.

Happy Birthday to your momma and girl, that necklace is perfect for you!

Big Hugs coming your way!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

You take beautiful pictures, you look so happy in all of them. I love what you said about your mom...that is exactly how I feel about mine. I'm going to check out Kelly's page...thanks!

Terri, I always love visiting you-you are full of surprises. Such fun to see you at your easel and with your Mom. I'm sure you are as dear to her as she is to you.

I've been away too-taking care of two sweet mischievous dogs. It's good to be home and blogging again!
Have a great week ~ Sherry
