It’s Spring!

Nothing says Spring quite like sheets on the line.
And nothing says Spring in Kansas quite like sheets blowing straight out in the wind. Hopefully they will smell divine when I put them on the bed. Worst case scenario…….they’ll smell like the pig farm just southwest of us. Or perhaps the feedlot a few miles to the west.
Aaaahhh yes. They tell me it’s the smell of money. I say there is something seriously wrong with people who can’t tell the difference between the smell of money and the smell of animal excrement!
But that’s what we get in Kansas. And since the power has gone out today (a reoccurring country mystery) I have no choice but to put them on the line and hope for the best.

sheets in the wind

I’ve returned from sunny California and am getting ready for the Lincoln Trail Decorative Artists in Illinois just outside of St Louis, Mo. I had a wonderful time with the Grapevine Tole painters in the Clovis/Fresno area with a few who traveled further distances. We painted The Twelve Days Of Christmas project. Thank You! To all the lovely painters there!

I stayed with a long time painting friend, Fran Musetti and her husband Bob. What fun to talk about old times and crazy times painting together in many classes.
While we were in Clovis we ran into an old time acquaintance from many years ago. Do you recognize him? Clovis is his home town. Make a comment on the blog if you know who this is!

Mystery Friend Fran and Me

I’m working on a special treat for you. I’m hoping to get it onto the blog before I leave next Friday. I’m pretty sure you’ll like it so check back this week.

I’ll leave you now with that little tease before the battery runs out on my I Pad!
