My new winter print...

I shudder to think that within a few very short months, this could be the landscape outside my front door... (Not the sheep and the quaint little village - I'd actually love that!... No, what scares me is the very thought of snow and single digit temps!)... It seems funny to be posting this print tonight as it's such a warm and humid September evening! The chilly evening temps of the past week are long gone and we're getting another little taste of the summer that almost passed us by!

"No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place." (Proverb)

Would I miss the cold and snow of New England if I ever moved away? Right now, embraced by the safety of late summer/early autumn temperatures, I'd say yes. However, I can assure you that the answer to that question come January would be completely different! So I intend to make the most of the next few months!
Wishing you all beautiful weather, wherever you are!

Rain + Art + Breakfast = Fun

A week ago we headed up to the Three Graces Gallery in Portsmouth, NH to see all the beautiful work on display...


As you can see from the water gushing out of the downspout, it was pouring! Quite a change from the gorgeous, sunny day we had when dropping off Amanda's art (see photos in previous post)...


But just look at the beautiful window displays! No amount of rain could have kept us away!


What a perfect lamp...


... for the "Three Graces Gallery."


I only took a couple of photos inside... one of the girls next to the lamp...


...and one of Amanda next to her work on display...


After browsing the gallery, it was time to get our umbrellas out and make our way over to The Friendly Toast....


The perfect end to a fun day in Portsmouth...
Hope you are all enjoying the first day of Autumn wherever you are!

Three Graces Gallery - Portsmouth NH ...and... Space 242 - Boston MA

Our busy Amanda is once again taking part in...


...the Teeny Tiny Art Show...


...at the Three Graces Gallery in historic Portsmouth, NH...


The view out the rear windows of the gallery...


...taken September 1st, when we dropped off her artwork.


And then last Friday, August 28th...


... we attended the Artist's Reception at Space 242 in Boston, where our Amanda is having a solo show along with fellow artists Scott Murry and Ellen Crenshaw...

I love how they lettered the door with each artist's name and the title of their exhibits...

Amanda caught up with lots of her friends from school...













Here's Amanda with some of her art.


And here she is taking some pictures of her own, which were hopefully less blurry than some of the ones that I took that evening!!


And here she is getting some sisterly love and support... awwwww.....

So happy that you are living your dreams, honey!!!

Love, Mumsy
