Saturday13 (MishMash) Part2

Okay, back to the 13, I have 7 left to go. # 7 is this painting I did for a blogging friend, now that she has it, I can share. She did something very lovely for me, so she really deserved this.

#8 is another painting for another wonderful blogging friend, who also was very kind to me. She is so wonderful I think I may have to do something more for her one day :-). Did I say she loves orange :-).

Then remember I told you that only one pendant made it out of the kiln, well here she is. She is a very costly little gem.

This is B before he got REALLY thin, he is doing okay, I have decided that I need to start seeing him as healthy and quite focusing so much on what is wrong!

Spike is doing well, but yesterday he decided not to eat, I realized that I need to stop micro managing his every movement. Today we got a rocky start, but now both he and B are eating up a storm. I am working on managing my stress as it relates to these two.
Today, I walked my dog, took the cat boys outside, played in porcelain and read. A perfect day if you ask me.
And # 13, Fall is here! Today felt crispy and cool and I put the comforter back on the bed. Soon the leaves will turn. I love Fall. I love all the seasons because they each have something wonderful to give.
Whew, 13 is really hard, Kj, I don't know how you do it!
Happy Sunday! XOXO

Annie, the top painting is so sweet... makes me think of "home is where the heart is." It's funny, 'cause now I can picture where it was when you took the photo!
Did you have to pay for the whole firing even though the kiln went down? Mr. B looks great in that photo... &
Spike, too! I can sense fall in the air, too... I'm excited about the coming fall color in our local mountains.
Have a great start to your week, Annie!

There is fall in the air for sure...this morning I got up to frost! My tomatoes will have to be picked today for ripening in the house.

I'm looking forward to the leaf colour which will happen very soon now. And then we will be in for the very really cold temperatures..

When I saw the House Painting on Suki's sidebar, I guessed it was from you! It's too adorable! Now we know who her "secret friend" is!

Lovely paintings.... and the heart necklace is good....I think the extra detail in the design adds a lot! It looks really saleable!

You know how I feel about B and Spike....

I love you all.

♥ Robin ♥

Your Boys are so beautiful!
As are the paintings,,(lucky recipients!)

I'm trying not to be too eager for fall, as winter follows much too soon.Still definitely summer here,,but the heat is not nearly as intense as it has been.

The pendant is very nice,,but I'm sorry it's a solo survivor.

Really enjoyed your 13! And, oh, I remember the kiln at my high school--fickle thing. But I don't think the power ever went out on us. That's rough!

Annie, sending prayers for the dear kitties. Whatever happens they are lucky to be your beloveds and under your care and love.

I decided to post a thank you post for three gifts I received recently. I hadnt post abt the painting as i wasnt sure just what to say. It is so beautiful as it smiles at me above my desk.

Hope you are enjoying the end of the summer. Heat wave here. Heh. Thank you my dear, love Suki

I came over from Suki's. It's been a while since I've visited your blog. Love the house and how it can stand on it's own on a desk or tabletop. I've been painting/drawing houses and am considering painting Critter Houses for my next series.

The photo of you is pretty and colorful. It's nice to put a face with your name and your art.

marianne said...

Oh I saw the painting at Suki's!
Such a perfect one for her!
Glad you had a perfect day!
I have 5 old cats....... and yes all these issues they have. Good you realize you have to control your stress dear...
And fall is nearly here as well. Not my favorite but I am working on it.......

Lovely paintings Annie. The pendant looks gorgeous- something almost Baroque about it.

Yes it is so hard when worries press in to remember you can push them back.

They are your babies. As a mother, you will instinctively nurture them as best you can. I am glad that you are recognizing your own stress level and trying to care for yourself as well.

The artwork is beautiful, beautiful gifts for special people from an angel:)
