To the Moon and Back

My latest painting...it has been slightly tweaked...but coming soon
To the moon and back...that's where it seems like I have been.  It's been a long time since I've last posted anything, and a lot has happened.  Mostly of a personal nature, the ups and downs of life...I for one am not going to pretend that my life is anywhere near perfect so let me clear up any confusion that internet-living often implies :)  One thing I've learned this year is to appreciate the small things even more; if you wait for the big things to make you happy, you could wait a long, long time. 

This past year brought sickness, job changes, a wedding in the family, loss of my beloved Benjamin Bunny, and updating my house, among many other mundane things.   But I recently began painting again after a long hiatus.  I hope to get some other paintings off the shelf for finishing touches and load them all on my sites for your enjoyment.

Below are some "highlights" of an imperfect life...the small things.

Bunny Lovin'
Benjamin Bunny...what a blessing! Rest in peace 5/12/13

A birthday cupcake from a friend

My favorite mug...coffee tastes better in it.

A bunny butt...doesn't get much cuter.

Fresh fruit...so blessed to have great produce here.

Kitchen update...Patisserie Style!

I painted my cabinets...off-white and black.  What a job!

The Fat Rabbit Pub... yum.  And I get a rabbit table number.
A friend's beautiful pool...I'm blessed to get to use it.

Keep looking on the bright side :)

The Long Summer

Out here in California it is still very much summer. I for one, am not thrilled about this. It's been a very busy few months and I can't wait for falling leaves, sweaters, and apple cider.

I've got a few paintings on my easel that I hope to release soon. I'm also excited about an upcoming project I'll announce soon.

Are you enjoying cooler temperatures yet? Stay well and bunny kisses to you!

Independence Day 2012!

There is no other holiday in my opinion with as much pomp and circumstance as Independence Day, or the 4th of July!  Here is a peek at our nation's colors flying around my home....ENJOY!


My Crepe Myrtles are blooming!  There are two more on the other side of the driveway...I need symmetry!
I love my urns...I love changing the flowers with each season.

Have a seat!

My hanging basket fits a "color bowl" from the Home Depot perfectly.

Mr. Bunny has gifts of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!

Stars hanging from the hooks I use for Christmas lights. 

Red, White, and PETUNIA!

I'm so thrilled my newly planted Creeping Fig plants are finding their way up this massive wall!

There is that wall I'm trying to cover...

Threw some flags on my wreath made by my buddy, Lizzy!  Lazy decorating...it works!

Again...all you need are some flags.  Stick'em in a vase and voila!

 My kitchen window overlooking the porch.

Get cozy!  Smell the fresh red and white roses from my garden!

I have an old photo from my hometown of Placerville on the 4th of July, 1896!

Here is a closer view....this is Main Street!  So cool!

Just a cute picture from a long time ago of my nephew...all American boy!  It's made to look old fashioned...I'm not THAT old!
One of the quilts I made for my patriotic guest room before it became an office.  There are holes in it from bunny bites that I need to applique over.  I was mad then, but now I find it endearing since my bunny is no longer with me.

McKenna, making herself at home on the American flag quilt I made. 

Savannah was feeling left out....so sweet!

If you haven't read the Declaration of Independence lately...GO HERE to read it!  I hope everyone has a great holiday and takes a moment to remember the history behind it!

Oh yes, and leave me a comment and let me know how you're celebrating the 4th!

Moonrise, Sunset in California

I was driving to a friend's home last night and stopped to take in the view. All I had was my iPhone (3Gs) camera (boo) but I snapped a few photos to try to capture the moment. Imagine how much better these were in person. God's creation is magnificent!!
Have a blessed Good Friday!
