I had a wonderful visit from Mother and Daughter painters, Diana Card and Deirdre Friebely. They brought their latest creations up to Earth Angels and we spent the afternoon together.
...And the best part, we go to meet Baby Leo...Deirdre's 4 month old is a little gem of a babe. Such a snuggle nugget -- we enjoyed him so very much.
Thanks ladies for sharing the day and for the wonderful new works...here are some of my faves...
From the new GrandMa Diana Card...
And from the New Momma Deirdre Friebely...
Diana, I cannot wait to spend some more time with you at The Country Living Fair! Wish we could bring Leo with us!

Can you guess who found what? Seven Earth Angels gal pals, 10 hours of antiquing...loads of laughs and loot! But, can you guess who found what? Identify the shoppers and their favorite finds and email your answers; I will draw a winner from those who can correctly identify the shoppers...

Earth Angels artist and gal pal Leslie McCabe invited us to visit for the day. It was my plan to photo her fab studio for an upcoming issue of "Where Women Create" (watch for a sneak peek of her space in an upcoming blog post), but to make it more fun, she invited me to bring the kids to visit with her granddaughters and learn a thing or two about rug hooking...
Here are some of my favorite pics of all the kids learning from Leslie...
Leslie, you really do take one of the Very Best GrandMa's ever awards! I loved watching your girls work with you, express their own style and make art with you. Thanks for including us.
When I grow up, I think I want to be a kid and spend the day at Leslie's house... and then stay over in the most wonderful of kiddie bedrooms.
Thanks Leslie for a wonderful visit...we'll come play again soon...
See more of Leslie's work on her webpage on the site...
Thanks again Leslie!
