Hats for Blue Hydrangea Tea

I designed two hats - one for me and one for Candy for this Sunday's Blue Hydrangea Tea.  Top one is mine (naturally with the touch of peacock) and the blue one on the bottom I did for Candy.

More pics from Waldeck's "A Derby Affair"

Waldeck is such a wonderfully historical place and the day was gloriously beautiful

Candy looking happy!

Me and the stupid cane...lol

A wonderful day at Waldeck!!

Today Candy and I went to Waldeck Farms for A Derby Affair - a benefit for the Human Society of Oldham County.  They have various vendors, refreshments and entertainment.  It was a glorious day, perfect for the event.  Waldeck is an amazing place.  I bought a painting of a cat that looked like Mouse kitty, and two cookbooks for Candy and me -- Cookbook for Pet Lovers.  We have a wonderful time.

We went to Easter supper with Candy Thompson at OUR BEST Restaurant.  A great place that is on the site of an old flour mill - you like have seen the flour in the stores. This is the original mill in Smithfield Kentucky. 

Candy made an Easter Bunny cake

She made me an Easter basket with Snoopy the Easter Beagle and a black-faced Scottish lamb.
all in all it was a wonderful day.

Hope your Easter was happy one too!

Wishing you a Happy Tartan Day!!!

Congrats to Candy Thompson!!!

Congrats, to my dear friend, Candy Thompson, on her first place win in the second level of state competition.  Last month she won a blue ribbon in the Heritage Fair, which sent the doll to half state competition.  Her third year in a row for taking first place in this level of competition. The Gypsy was based on the Gypsy Fortuneteller from my book A Wolf in Wolf's Clothing. The wonderful doll goes on to full state competition at the end of next month.

A writer's mind....

Many things provoke stories to take root in the author's mind.  This image is one of those things.

However, I cannot find anything out about it.  It's image name is Millpark, but I am not able to find the origins of the image, who took it, or where the site is.  If anyone has any information, please let me know!!

Mystery Solved:

Abandoned Carbide Mill, Lac Meech, Quebec

Thomas Leopold "Carbide" Willson (March 14, 1860 – December 20, 1915) was a Canadian inventor.
He was born on a farm near Princeton, Ontario in 1860 and went to school in Hamilton, Ontario. By the age of 21, he had designed and patented the first electric arc lamps used in Hamilton. He moved to the United States in search of opportunities to sell his ideas.
In 1892, he discovered an economically efficient process for creating calcium carbide, which is used in the production of acetylene gas. In 1895, he sold his patent to Union Carbide.

In Days of Olde...lol

Sásta Lá Fhéile Bríde -- Happy St. Brid's Day

One of Jonathan Earl Bowser's most beautiful and enduring imagines, so perfect for St. Brid's Day.  Entitle REGENERATION, apt for this day.  Also, a hope for me.  I have been dealing with physical therapy for the past two months, and may be for a couple more.  I had several bad falls this past year, and the damage to my knees really has put me in a struggle to get back to walking without pain.  I am determined to be ready for the spring and summer coming, and won't let this slow me down for long.

Wishing you a new beginning to your year, a promise of spring.

Someone, please!, put sunglasses on that ground hog.
