Have Some Potato Peel Pie and Philosophy


Two more weeks of school....and one of those weeks is finals!! Yea! We are coming to the end of another school year and that makes year 4 of home school for us. I'll have two high school students next fall. Yikes! It's been a good year, but we are all ready for a break!

Gifts and Surprises~
I'm a little behind on blogging this week. I didn't receive any handmade keepsakes this year for Mother's Day, instead, I was given a book, and some DVDs. I'm enjoying The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
If you haven't read it, I recommend you do. I was on the waiting list at our local library until the boys surprised me with my own copy. And I was #63 on the list! So, I guess others must think it is worth the read too!

Yesterday, as a surprise in the mail, I opened a box from my cousin and found one of my most favorite (well, the only thing I wear), fragrances in a shower/bath cream. I love Philosophy's Grace fragrance.
She really surprised and spoiled me! Oh, and she sent this very neat tote from Philosophy too!
Thank you dear cousin!


A little update news~

The Primitive Gathering is updated for the 15th. I painted two styles of dress forms on crackled backgrounds, and some lace and trims on a deep mocha background.

What a nice surprise from your cousin... and the boys!

Your dress forms and lace paintings are beautiful. I think I could decorate my entire house with your artwork Suzanne!

Suzanne,

I'm a philosophy girl too!! I can't get enough of amazing grace ...I get everything from QVC on easy pay...It helps my (philosophy) addiction. :0)
Take Care,
Tina
