A Few of My Favorite Things

I Love the sunshine, Flowers, and Birds.
I used pastels and Prismacolor Pencils and a pen.  I've had a lot of boxes unpacked this week and things are beginning to go into place. It has been a long hard chore to move.  I am sorry I cannot get around to as many of you as I used to, but it will settle down at some point, yep, that is what I keep telling myself.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for making this opportunity (Paint Party Friday) available for artists to show and tell. There are so many wonderful artists who are so giving of their time and talent. 

Thank you all who visit and take the time to leave comments. It is so helpful and heart-warming.

A few pictures of my new place in Tulsa, OK

 The Pelican planter was in FL too.  I love the sounds of the fountain.
 I have been a cloth doll maker. . .and she has been on my front door.
Oct. 1 will be my Halloween Offering.
The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

    I am afraid I am a 'glass is half empty' person but I am working on it

  5. Hi Janet! Congrats on moving. I am not sure if all the boxes ever get unpacked. I have a shed full and no idea what is in them. I keep saying I will be all caught up "soon" and it's been over a year.

    Your bird is so cute! Love the pelican planter. I wouldn't have wanted to part with that either. Good luck and hope you all are happy where you are. Hugs, Rasz

  6. Glad you are beginning to settle into your new place... it's bound to take time.
    I too love sun, flowers and birds and you've drawn a delicate pretty piece of art.
    Great little chap come to welcome you into your new place. Good luck with the unpacking.
    Happy PPF to you

  7. Beautiful artwork...even your pastel looks more settled! Your photos are lovely...and your front door which I love the colour of is the same colour as my loft where my desk is! I hope you find some glorious contentment in that new place!!

    Hugs Giggles
