Happy Weekend!

Spent WAY TOO much time in the studio this week.
I'm so looking forward to the weekend, being outside in the fresh air...

She's so cute

Lori was talking about this fun app, I had to give it a try...

Happy Friday, Happy Weekend!

Rainbow using Instagram

Winter finally arrived here last week. With cooler weather, rain, hail and snow in the mountains.
I think the mountains might have enough snow now to go snowshoeing too!

A couple new things coming tomorrow...

Yoga dog

Molly loves doing yoga with me. Her favorite position is downward dog.
(when she's not trying to lick my face, that is)

It's been raining here, for the last few days (finally)
A good day to make a pot of chili, I think...

Chocolate buzzz....



For Christmas my sister sent us chocolates...
They "were" not only the cutest chocolates I have ever seen, but the salted caramel honey chocolate bees were divine (and I've tasted a lot of chocolates)

Have a sweet weekend...

What a difference...

 Snowshoeing in Yosemite (outhouse)
Snowshoeing in Yosemite (me)
Snowshoeing in Yosemite

Snowshoeing in Yosemite (Kurt & Molly)
 Kurt and Molly

What a difference a year makes.
Last year at this time our mountains had lots of snow. This year we are still having nice warm weather (mid 70's) and no snow....or rain for over 60 days now! 
Because we are on well water, we need the rain and snow in the mountains.

This week we have a chance for both (rain & snow)
I'm hoping that rain dance worked.

Give me a G

G 010

G 004

G 007

G is for GARDEN
G is for GREAT
G is for GREEN
G is for GIDDY
G is also the letter in my last name

I found this large salvaged metal letter "G" 
Now I need to give it a coat of paint (maybe two different colors) and hang it on my wall.
I'll show you when it's all done...

Kurt: i found these in my shop, are they yours?
Me: OMG!!!! where were they?
Kurt: in my shop...
Me: in your shop?
Kurt: on the shelf above my work bench
Me: i was looking everywhere for those (a few years ago)
Kurt: why were they in my shop?
Me: i was using your grinder to clean up the backs of the typewriter keys...i've looked everywhere in my studio for them, but I could never find them...

I don't even remember what I had in mind for these keys...but my mind is racing now with some fun ideas!

Happy New Year!

Did everyone survive the holidays?
No matter how organized I try to be, they still sneak up on me.
But we had a nice one, hope you did too!

A couple weeks ago Martha had a giveaway on her blog (I love her soldered goodies) she was introducing her new Custom Pet Silhouette ornaments! 
Well, I had to enter...who wouldn't want a ornament of their pup, right!
And guess what, I WON!!! I know, I feel like I won the lottery!

So first I had to get a side shot of you know who...which was easier said then done.
It took two of us. I went outside (Molly is super nosy) so while Molly was playing i-spy with me...Kurt started snapping away...

molly 1084
no, too far away...

molly 1092
no, blurry...

molly 1109
no Molly, look out the window...

molly 1095
no, need ear tips...

molly 1115
ah just right...

I then sent the picture to Martha and in a few days this arrived...and hung on our tree over the holidays.

It's just the sweetest!

website 6065
LOVE it!

And look at all the can see the little hairs! 
Thank you again Martha...

Molly is also one of 20 contenders for a Christmas picture contest...(wearing her Santa Baby suit)
If you'd like to vote for her, I know she would love it!
You can vote HERE
I told Molly if she wins, she'll have to have a "fan page" on Facebook! HA!

Here's to a Healthy & Happy 2012!
