Yesterday, daughter Kelly and I made the short drive over to Beebe, Arkansas, to visit a new flea market. It was their opening day and Funky Junque is the name. Tiny place and so darn cute!! I loved it. Now, Kelly is not the flea market type, but I had mentioned this opening and the fact I wanted to go and for some reason, she wanted to go too. A nice mother/daughter day trip and it was fun!
She did manage to buy a few little things, mostly jewelry...and amongst her purchases was a huge letter "E."
She bought it for me! So, when we got home, she placed it right there where you see it...on the wall between the living room and the kitchen. I LOVE it!!! Anyone with the last name of EATON should have a huge E in their house, don't you think?
It was nearly too high for her to place it there, but she stretched to do it...with me holding on to her so she wouldn't fall. Kind of like the blind leading the blind as we are both filled with such grace!
It was placed in it's new home, no accidents ensued, so all is well and if/when I need help remembering my own name...there is the perfect reminder.
Such a nice letter!
I think it was meant to be there. Thank you, dear daughter!!!
I've also named my little house....BIRD NEST COTTAGE. One day last week it just came to me that I wanted to name my home. For instance, my previous house (still for sale, by the way!), did not have a name but the backyard studio did...as you know...BIRD NEST ON THE GROUND. No studio space is available here, so my whole house, with every room essentially being used as part of a new studio, I felt, needed a name. And, now, it has one. Only important to ME, for remembering past days.
In this photo, I am in my car, getting ready to turn right at the end of my street. Often, while in the car, I see something I'd like to take a photo of, but can't because I am driving. This particular time, I was waiting for an opening in the traffic, and no one was behind me, so I took the opportunity to photograph these beautiful clouds with my cell phone. You can ignore the reflection of my dashboard on the windshield there just above the trees. I LOVE clouds and thought these were just spectacular!
And, yet another. Glorious clouds! I wish I was a person able to paint clouds like these! And, yes, as has been the drill the last few months....more rain began to fall.
I'm wishing you a lovely day.....
Until next time,
