Artist in Residence (or a few doors down)


This is Amy ~ my neighbor. She's an artist and her painting was chosen to be on the Wildflower Festival poster this year. The Wildflower Festival is an annual event in our community. She also has an Etsy shop with lots of pretty paintings in it too. Go check it out:


The Lion's Club copied her painting onto a poster and all the proceeds from today's sales went to charity.

It was a beautiful day in Texas. Hope you had a great weekend in your corner of the world.


OK. I just realized I'm wearing the same shirt in the last post too. I do have other clothes really. But this is one of those go-to shirts so comfortable and brown. Yes, brown I'm loving it right now. It goes with everything plus this is Texas and if the temperature drops below 80 degrees we just have to wear our long-sleeved shirts or shirt in my case.

That is awesome! What an honor to be chosen. Tell her congratulations!!

I love my to go to shirts....I have to be careful and not wear it to work more than once a week. :)

The weather was beautiful here as well.

haha, if you wouldn´t have mentioned the shirt I never would have noticed! :) But it looks great.

Congrats to your friend and her painting being chosen! Awesome way to support a charity.

Isn't that funny? I have a tendency to wear the same shirts and jeans over and over because they go in the wash and I'm too lazy to fold them and put them away! We had a small "cold front" here and I had to get out my Halloween shirts - so I'm rotating three ghoulish shirts right now!

Joy,

I found you via the article written for ultimate woodlands. Congratulations to your friend! I have lived in The Woodlands for 22 years and used to collect those posters when I was kids here!

It sounds like we have the same way to organize coupons :)
