a heart of roses

new painting on Etsy

“If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.”
A.A. Milne

“We'll be Friends Forever, won't we, Pooh?' asked Piglet.
Even longer,' Pooh answered.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh 

Remembering my dearest friend Janet
who left me a year ago.
Forever in my heart.

a few random things

How cute is that?
Some sweet friends sent me a little surprise
package with these adorable napkins.
So true, especially the hair and except for the dog.
I would need a little chat or deux.

...and speaking of cats

 Here are Buster and Jack

 bedecked in antlers..and not too happy about it!

Happy First Day of Winter!

I'm still putting ornaments on the tree, baking yet to do
and some cleaning.  I'll get there!

beautiful movie

Oh, my!
Probably one of the most visually beautiful movies ever!
I enjoyed the book and was just captivated by the film.

new painting

I'm using this painting for my Christmas cards this year.
There are prints available in my Etsy shop.

I also finished this commission:

 Now I need to decorate my house for Christmas!

Thanks for the good advice on my blog problem.
I'm actually liking the new book club blog.
It just looks a little bare compared to the old one.
Once we read a few more books, it will look better.

I did go into my Picassa albums ( as suggested by Judy).
I had over 100 duplicates!  That was when I first started the blog
and didn't know what I was doing!  
I'm also reducing the size of the pictures ( as suggested by Val).

A quick question to all fellow bloggers:
Blogger says I am out of picture storage (I have 2 blogs) 
and now wants to charge me a monthly fee.
Do you pay for your blog or do you know of other alternatives?
My second blog is for my book club.
