Sam and Bear

Bear is a snuggler. The UPS and Mailmen would dispute as he seems like a ferocious guard dog. But given any opportunity or opening... he will find a way for you to pet him. As he did with Sam this morning.

The Original Art Car / Gaye Medbury

In 1968 Gaye's father told her he would buy her a car. So she selected a brand new VW Bug. It came with all the parts in a different color. A convertable no less! Who knew that VW's were the original art cars???? Gaye always the trend setter even in 1968! Awesome!

Suitcase Fetish

Totally love this and wish I could say it is a wall in my home but alas...I found it online and saved in my pics....and not even sure where I found it.

From now on I will try to be a better blogger who attributes sources.

Just read the etiquette on

Now that I know there is a rule I will try to follow in spite of my tendency to break.

P.S. Gordon the Brit...did some investigating and found the source of this pic. Gail Reike's Studio in Santa Fe, NM. It was fun getting on her site and seeing her home and work. This pic is just a section of a large wall. Thanks Gordon!

Jewelry by Kelli

Kelli Pope is hard at work making her wonderful Jewelry at our Louisville Artisan's Guild Holiday Showcase. It is always fun to get to visit with my art peeps.

Also while standing there talking to Kelli I saw a necklace that I couldn't get out of my head and had to purchase first thing Sunday morning. Will show pic of it later when I locate in my show stash.

So now I need to get to my studio and "make christmas". I have non stop shows beginning November 19. Ending with my home studio open house. Yikes!!!!

Road Trip to Western Kentucky

Sally, Sandra, Shirley, Mary and Susanne. Had a fun day visiting relatives in Beaver Dam, KY.

Independence Baptist Church Est. 1896

Absalom Chapman my great, great, grandfather made the church pews from trees on his land and donated them to Independence Baptist Church, Mc Henry, KY, in 1896. The church ultimately replaces the 1896 pews with new.

Now one of Absalon's originals resides on our front porch. Perfect fit as if it was made just for our porch. A pew with a past.

Aunt Mary and Mom

This year Aunt Mary celebrated her 90th. B-day. Most women don't want their age known but when you reach 90 and are sharp as a tack and look as good as Mary.....all bets are off!!!!!!

Bear and Sam Wait for Trick or Treaters

Sam was wearing a witches hat just minding his own business....sitting on the porch swing waiting for Trick or Treaters when Bear decided to jump up and join him. Bear never ever misses an opportunity for a snuggle and a swing. So Cute!!

Bear was also feeling pretty good since his girlfriend, Fiona, came by wearing a Jack O' Lantern costume. They kissed thru the fence. Very Cute!!

Every year we hope for 100's of tricksters. But only about 30 show. So Sad!!

Vintage Jack O' Lanterns

Used battery operated tea lights in these paper mache pumpkins. Scarry!

The Pirates of Harris Place

Bear's girlfriend Fiona belongs to the Pirate family. They live on the corner and daily when we walk by Bear and Fiona have a moment of love. Often Fiona will stick her head out of the gate and Bear will lick her face. Sometimes he just pees on her fence. It is Love!

Ahoy Matie! Arrrgh!
