The Studio Looks Great!

Just a quick drive by to share some pictures of Merrymeeting Art House -- what it looks like inside and pretty near to complete. I have a few things here and there that I want to do but for the most part it's ready for the open house this Friday and Saturday.

I love the table -- it's a perfect size to sit around and create with a group of friends!

So many people donated things -- a heartfelt and huge thanks to everyone that helped! I especially love this little shelf unit -- it's fits perfectly on one wall!

And my Mom brought me my favorite flowers for the first Art Meet-Up.

THANKS everyone for your help and pep talks! Much appreciated for sure! Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Thanks for dropping by, have a great day!

Summer's Bounty

I love gardening, even if I don't weed as much as I should -- I guess I don't really like the weeds.

My Mom and I made our annual batch of spaghetti sauce last weekend -- it's so delicious!

It's a lot of work -- first we scald the tomatoes to get the skin to come off easily.

Then we squeeze the seeds out and crush them. Meanwhile, one of us is chopping lots of onion and garlic and getting that ready to add the crushed tomatoes.

It takes a couple of hours to get it to the point where the jars are cooling and ready to store for the winter.

Come January when it's cold and wet outside -- I'm reminded of my weedy garden full of yummy tomatoes every time I crack open a jar of this!

Thanks for dropping by, have a great day -- Happy Labor Day.
