A bit more Flow Blue (or Flo Blue)

School is about to start again and it seems when it does the Holidays are close by and time goes faster. I decided this week I would "make" things go a little slower to get myself to relax. I get a lot of inspiration from so many other blogs, for my home and for my art. So, I went to several blogs that I've loved for so long, but really got to stay for a while. It was absolutely indulging--I wish I could do that more often. 

There are times when I "have to" paint a certain item and I search and search as it nags at me until I find it. That was the case with the snap dragons below. I was thrilled to find them after most of June and July searching for them. I think they are perfect with the pink carnations. Although I am also working on a painting that is just the snap dragons. I did have to go a bit bigger than my usual paintings on this one in order to be able to fit them in the canvas without having to lose too much detail.  Now to paint some sunflowers.

There are a few pieces left that are starting at $25. 

I must not forget to say a HUGE thank you for ALL your support. Your encouragement and your desire to have my paintings in your home is more than special to me. 
It is truly an honor. THANK YOU!!!!

    1. Thank you, Vicki. I try to paint things other than roses, but they are sneaky and seem to end up in most paintings. Carolina

    1. Marie-Paule, thank you for your kind words. I fell in love with your color pallet--all the gorgeous whites and creams with greys, dusty rose, and blues sprinkled throughout. Oh, it is all so very inspiring. Also, I had never thought to use gingham with willow wear porcelain, but it looks wonderful together. Warm greetings, Carolina

    1. Sophia, thank you for your words and sharing your beautiful photos. I wanted a vegetable garden, but I had to convince my hubby that it would actually make our yard look more like a finished idea and not a hodgepodge of beds and planters. Your photos seem to accomplish the look that I am after. I wish you a lovely day. Greetings, Carolina

    1. Thank you so very much. I love roses, and David Austin are a passion for me also. I purchased about 20 of them two years ago and this year they kept getting eaten by something. I thought it was grasshoppers, but come to find out bunnies had made my garden their little home. I don't mind them staying in the yard, but I do so love my roses. So, I had to chop up some garlic and sprinkle it around the roses. Now they are getting new growth and I couldn't be happier. The bunnies to continue to live in the garden.

  7. Thanks for your comment! Sorry it took me so long to pop over and say "Merci" -- I am trying to get really back into blogging and it's a slow start! I absolutely LOVE the flo blue painting! I love those dishes!!!! I wish I "knew" how to paint. My art skills are such an underdeveloped talent it's very sad. Your work is just lovely.

    Be sure to come and like my FB page if you haven't already. I appreciate your support.

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

My heart is filled with all your inspirational words. Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around.

I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
