The weather was in the 70's and 80's most of the time, perfect!
My sister, Lynette and her family came from Texas for visit. We went down where you launch kayaks. The shore is covered with abalone and oyster shells from years ago when they use to harvest them there.
While digging in my garden, I found these oyster shells.
I made concrete spheres for my tiny garden. I got the idea here. Lots of fun to make!
My dad made me a driftwood bird house (love it!)
Farmer's Market on Thursday nights in SLO.
We use to go all the time when Kurt worked in SLO, it's still so much fun!
Brussel sprouts on the stock
Shhhh...no dogs allowed at farmer's market...but if you don't tell, I won't
Found some cool beach pebbles
Even though Kurt was sick for much of our vacation, we managed to have a couple days of fun.
May you find yourself under the mistletoe this holiday season...
Hugs and Kisses, Maria and Molly too
Molly and I will be taking a little time off to spend with family and friends... We wish everyone a very Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! See you in 2014! xo ***Photos were taken by our son, Anthony. Which was more difficult this year as Molly thought there was a HUGE flying bug hovering over her head the whole time...so funny!
Not so new...I have been making owls for years, but I have never offered them "Made to Order" until now!
So if you'd like a little Owl named Hoot for your own, they are HERE.
Something new, I had a special request a couple weeks ago for some Plum Pudding beads. After playing around a bit, this is what I came up with. And because I think everyone needs some Plum Pudding for the holidays, you can order yours HERE.
