On the first day of Christmas... true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree.  This is a little Christmas ornament I just made and I am feeling inspired to do all 12 days of Christmas!  I will keep posting as I finish them:)  I cut out the pieces from patterned paper and glued them to a small wood cut out.  To finish, I put a nice gloss over top to seal everything.

New kitchen colors!

I am embracing the yellow laminate countertops that came with this old house.  By using grey paint on the walls and adding pops of yellow throughout, the countertops look great!

I am still getting things from my garden.

little turtle

I love watercolors!

My first garden.

When I first started my garden all the plants seemed so small.  It was hard to believe that they would get so big.  I had the most success with cherry tomatoes, eggplant and peppers.  I grew everything organically.  There were a couple of groundhogs nearby that ate all my cabbage, lettuces, and broccoli.  Recently I caught two of them in traps and let them out in the Metroparks.  Now they have a nice new home away from all my vegetables!  Next year, I am going to double the size of the garden and put up better fencing to keep the critters out :)  I will post more pics of the garden soon.  The tomato plants must be 7 feet tall !
