Show Cancelled!

I am so sorry to have to inform you that this Saturday's Art in the Yard has been cancelled due to the weather. I am very sad about it, as I always say it is my favorite show and I love the people there so much.
I do have another great show coming up in the downtown Riverside area on Sunday December 8th,I will post the flyer as soon as I get it.

Busy,busy, I've been working on makings for the show this Saturday and just found out that it might not happen because of the possibility of rain. Please think good thoughts and good weather, I really love going to this show and of course I could use the income.
I will leave you with a quick photo of my work table and my afternoon pick me up,nothing like some hot lemon water and a shortbread cookie! I will also let you know in a day or two if the show is on or not.

Remembering the Light

Tonight the time changes here,and while the light has been changing for the season,we will now have the darkness arrive much sooner in the afternoons. I'm not a big fan of this aspect of the upcoming winter,I don't like the cold and the dark. I've been trying to enjoy this gorgeous weather so that I can remember it and wrap that warm memory around me like a comfy blanket when needed this winter.
I took this photo the other day when I noticed the shadows on my bedroom wall. The walls look white here,but they are actually a lovely pale green and the late afternoon light the shines upon them is wonderful,the whole room almost glows for a short time in that part of the day.

It's November and we know what that means don't we? No I'm not talking about Thanksgiving,(yet),I'm talking about "Art in the Yard"!
I've been working on some new ornaments and jewelry,(to ornament yourself),and I will of course have some of my tried and true pieces. The boy is trying to arrange his schedule to be able to come and spend that day,so cross your fingers and it might just be like old times,(almost).
