Garden 2011

We just set the posts for my new garden over the long weekend.  Last year was my trial garden and now I feel confident to build a more permanent structure.  It is now 15 ' X 30'.    Since every project I have worked on lately is confidential at work, I will try to keep updating my garden progress :)

My brother and nephew worked on setting the posts in concrete.  I was so thankful that the sky was mostly overcast because the sun would have been a little much!

Concrete is dry, today is sunny!  Time to rototill the dirt once or twice more this week.  Wrap some fencing along the posts and build a gate.  Weather permitting, the plants should be in the ground this coming weekend :)

Art Show 2011

This is the design that I embroidered for the art show.  I am so happy that is was accepted into the Gallery Show!  It is a "Day of the Dead" skull or "Dias de los Muertos".

I wanted to share a few images off other blogs that inspire me to paint old items and give them new life.  I will be looking at lots of garage sales this season in hopes for some unique pieces to refurbish :)
