Happy Pink Saturday to all of you. I have for the past several years now been somewhat jealous of the beautiful roses I see in the gardens of Pink Saturday participants. Until recently I have lived in South Lake Tahoe and lived in homes with very little sun due to a lot of trees, and a very short growing season. Not a good mix for roses. However, we recently moved to Southern California and I have a few places for Roses. So, I brought my little sticks with me, planted them and am feeding them, watering them, pampering them all in the hopes that by next Spring I will see my sweet roses begin to live again. If not - I'll go buy more - but the one rose - a Cecil Brunner I have had for over 20 years and it barely survived South Lake Tahoe and is now like I said a stick - so we will see.
Anyway, in the interim, I make myself happy by creating banners to bring in some Summer florals.
Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound was one of the very first venues I found when I started blogging to get me into the "scene" so to speak. She's been around for years - probably way before I found her and her blog is always a delight. So many people come together on this site to share their lives and the things most fond to their hearts. I don't get to participate nearly as much as I would like, but today I am.
School will be starting up again very soon and so I have made some cards for that occasion - some for the children heading back to school and some for the Teacher they will be meeting soon. I remember those days - all in new school clothes, with a new box of crayons, some drawing paper, a ruler, notebooks - I'm sure it all so much more sophisticated today - buy my memories are fond as I'm sure the memories of children today are also.
Apparently there is something wrong with my Live Writer program - my daughter says she is having the same problem. Every time I try to post it says Blogger cannot be found???? Anyway, so here I am after all these years basically starting over with Blogger. It's probably easier than I think it is - but I'm very much a creature of habit and I did like my Live Writer - so so easy! I've been trying to post with Live Writer several times but was unable to do so. So once again it has appeared that I have been away from my blog - but I was trying to be a bit more consistent. Again, so here I am - we'll see how it goes.
It's beautiful here in Southern California and even though the move was a bit trying - it was all worth it. I love it here - always sunny, always gorgeous. We are raining today, but raining here at least so far is different. It comes in short waves and then the sun comes out - and everything grows here. Did I say how much I love it here??
So here's a bit of what I've been up to lately and I'm going to try and post to How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday - I hope this works!
I loved working on this and hope to do a Fairy Pocket soon - This is available in my Etsy Shop if you are interested, and you can get to it by clicking on the shop to the right. I seem to be incapable of adding a link correctly right now
O.K. that's it for now - I've got to see if this is going to work
Take care friends and always make a little time for yourself to create
