The Seasons...Summer

Ah, summer! I do love summer. Summer in Greece would be even better. So here is a wonderful room with a glorious view of the Aegean.

Ok, I have used samples from the Shade Store for each of the seasons. I loved this particular one as the design is so cool and it's big. Also got some wonderful sample fabrics from The Scrap Box, the local re-use store that has industrial and other discards. I'll be using them before long.

My Smaller Compadres And I Raise a Glass to My Followers

We raise a glass to all the wonderful people who are my followers, those who have peeked at my posts, and those who leave such supportive comments. I love sharing this fun hobby with you. I love the creativity I see in you. I love the feeling of community you all have created.
Sending love and peace your way.

In case you are curious, that's me in the bottom right corner. My son photoshopped the picture for me. I was going to have everyone blowing kisses, but my silly action figures don't have enough points of articulation.

The Seasons...Spring

If winter comes can spring be far behind?
Spring, the season of re-birth...or in this case, it seems, birth itself.

Looks like someone wants baby to like cars.

What Beany Wants Beany Gets

Beany of Minis-B-Happenin' commented that she "could curl up here with a throw and a good movie because I'm sure the TV is in the hutch." Well, if Beany wants it, Beany gets it.

The Seasons...Fall

Ahh, is reality. The days where you can't decide whether to wear your strappy sandals or your boots. The days of the last flowers. The days of bobbing for apples...does anyone do that anymore? And, because memories of summer are still bright in our hearts, there are shells we collected on vacation in the hutch.

This was inspired by the shade store sample, shown here as the area rug, as was my earlier winter post.
And, as they were seasonal colors, I had to include Garfield, one of my son's favorite characters when he was a child, and the black cat eraser he gave me.

The Seasons...Winter Revised

What was I thinking??..certainly not remembering the real winter. I left the most important things out.
So here is a little revision.

My husband says, "Nothing is funnier than a woman wrapped up in a blanket." Thanks, Craig.

The Seasons...Winter

As I am officially not wanting winter this year...and that is official...I got inspired to do a scene. Also, I was inspired by the samples from the Shade Store to do a post on each of the seasons.  This sample looked wintry, icy, grey, and dark to me. Anyway, here in Michigan, this is how you get through winter...
1.  Have chocolate and warm drinks available.
2.  Read an Atlas to try to find warm places and read a book called Frühling (spring).
3.  Catch up on reading
4.  Decorate with springlike pillows.
5.  Have your boots and shovel ready.
6.  Don't forget the lotion for those scaly spots.
7.  Keep your furry critters happy so they can help you stay warm.
