YOU have been MISSED!!!!

Our move is complete....boxes are unpacked...things are in place and it already feels like HOME!!!

Time away from my blog has been hard but it was probably a good thing that we didn't have internet until today....I don't think that all the boxes would have been unpacked so fast...LOL!!  We love our new town. Everyone here is so laid back and always smiling. A perfect fit for our little family. 

We live in a community that has so many wonderful places in walking distance. The Chazman and I finally got out yesterday and did some exploring. We visited the local drug store which has a working old timey soda fountain. Items from long ago can still be found sitting on the shelves....a train that travels all around the store on a high rail and soda fountain tables to sit at while enjoying a favorite delight. Of course, you know that we just had to sit and enjoy...nothing like sharing a strawberry malt on a warm day. After the last strawberry was found in the bottom of the glass we decided to walk down the street and see what other hidden treasures could be found. Two doors down from the drug store we found an artist gallery....I couldn't believe it. I told Chaz that we would go in and explore. Look but don't touch and be very quite. Leave it to my son to yell out as soon as we walked in..."My mom is the greatest artist in the world".  One of the ladies started laughing and asked me what type of art I did. I told her about my ooaks and she invited me to bring some in so she could take a look and us talk about placing some with her. Now you see why I love this town so much already. So many wonderful places still to explore and we have a whole summer to discover all there is to offer.

I have so much inspiration here. I have three large windows that make up one wall in my studio and in watching all the squirrels, birds and some of the biggest butterflies I have ever laid my eyes upon my muse started whispering of mother earth. So begins my first sculpt here in my new home....I promise some WIP pics soon. Have to find my camera that somehow has been misplaced.....thought I had all my boxes unpacked...LOL!!

I'm so happy to be have all been dearly missed and I hope that your visits here will be greatly enjoyed with all the new characters I have knocking at my imaginations door.

Until next time..........BIG HUGS,
