May 25, 2014: Random


This is the season that I just love exploring the garden. It's amazing how "the garden" has always been a part of our lives. I've been looking at pictures and am just amazed by the abundance of the gardens Mom created at home. What a treat to have this picture of those gardens and of Grandma!


What could be more random than random pick ups! Went to VV randomly and then randomly found some treats - all of which were on a list to-buy somewhere or other, whether it just hit my list this week or had been on it for years! Quite lovely to tick them off now and enjoy them.


I totally don't remember painting this! Maybe I didn't because you would think I would remember but it was on my old laptop in my creative folder called "art" and it only has art I have done. We took my old laptop in to a company that retrieves lost data and this was there and now I have all my BC photos again!!! I feel like a part of me has been restored. And hey, maybe I am kind of talented. Now that I know I like surreal art, I like this even more.

Wow, great finds, Shannon. Who would have thought you'd stumble across Pontypool! And those are awesome shoes!

You know what's wild, Suzie? I cam across that painting you did this week too. I happened to be looking at art photos and there it was. You definitely painted it and I think you called it "Drink'. What a find - and WOW yay to having your photos restored. And here's to your talent - yay!!!

Oh what a beautiful photo of Grandma! I can really see Mom's resemblance to her in this one and just seeing Mom's garden melts my heart. She really was a genius with flowers. So lovely and yes, a big part of our lives. Loved your garden video Jamie!

So you got Ponty Pool at VV? Awesome! So happy your have Mists of Avalon Shannon, that's a keeper and those sneakers rock.

No way Jamie, really? OK, I have confirmation then that that is my painting. :) And how random is that? I can't believe you came across it too!
