Ana's Art

My daughter Ana is quite the artist. She has been drawing these amazing pictures as long as I can remember. When she has some down time I can always find her with a pad of paper and a pen, typically a black pen. A couple years ago she started drawing her pictures on the computer and because she is truly gifted, the computer drawings and the paper drawings look exactly the same. Here are some of my favorites....

"Self Portrait"

"Kilala Princess"

"New York City"

"The Late Night"

"Around The World"

Our pretty Thanksgiving tables.

I had so much fun hosting the Thanksgiving feast this year. Good food, good family, good can't get much better. Hope you all had a great day too!

My Fall Favorites

Anything Thanksgiving I love Thanksgiving and I feel that it has been passed over lately and everyone focuses on Christmas. I give each holiday it's own time and love it for what it is. I wish I could make a beautiful table complete with placecards, center pieces and butter cut to look like leaves. It's not that I can't, it's that I have to cook and get the big meal ready and I'm just happy to have food on the table not in their pots they were cooked in. Someday when I get that wait staff and chef then I can focus on the decorative part of Thanksgiving. But until then I'll just eat a whole lot of pie. Yum!

Galway Boot by Dubarry of Ireland These boots are completely waterproof and warm. They are made in Ireland so I'm sure they are everything promised. And you'll pay a pretty penny but obviously worth it.

Arched Persimmon Overcoat by Anthropologie This coat is such a great color. It would bring out all those amazing leaves falling around you.

Molten Chocolate Bag by Anthropologie I really need (ok, want, whatever) a dark brown purse.

Play Tent by Restoration Hardware So I don't have to keep building blanket forts that are sub-standard and keep falling on our heads. And what kid doesn't love a teepee?

My Latest Project

Last weekend (and also the upcoming weekend) I participated in my very first Holiday Craft Boutique. I made these chalkboards and they were a hot item. I especially like the pink one. If I had a little girl that one would not have been sold.

This is a cork board. I love this fabric.
