from 1-7 pm @ Cinema Paradiso in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Get there early and get one of the 100 swag bags full of goodies they will be giving out, stay, shop and play as they have a wide variety of activities available. There will be a few raffles. Dress up for an extra raffle ticket. Maybe you will get lucky and get the very special item I put up!
My stepmother was an avid gardener and I wanted to share some of my favorite images I took of her garden while on my visit there in August. The reasons I went up to Pennsylvania , back home, where by far the most pleasant of situations but I must say it was a truly inspiring trip. I think the time away and the solitude in nature was truly soul nurturing. I was able to think and set my priorities straight. This garden has always been a true source of inspiration in my life. I have seen it from conception to it's final grand product thru the years. She was truly blessed and will be missed.
A haven for butterflies of all colors.
There where rows and rows of black eyed susans in bloom :)
I must have sat by these flowers every day. Most days they where covered by plump bumble bees. My favorite!
During my stay I got to eat plenty of homegrown vegetables. These sun kissed tomatoes where particularly yummy!
The past few months have found me catching up on my life and my new ventures. I feel sometimes I can hardly catch a breath. We lost a very close, very dear family member in a tragic automobile accident. It has taken me sometime to heal but being busy creating and designing helps a lot.
This past July I got the opportunity to be part of the Indie Craft Bazaar (Peace,Love and Craftyness). Which was an experience in itself. I have to say I felt very welcomed. The other artists where very nice and their work was very inspiring. I am grateful that there is a growing community of indie artists and crafters and that we have found each other!
The flyer was designed by Rachel Loves Peace . I got to meet her at the Bazaar. Her work is very happy and colorful. And she has an air like she has the secret to happiness. Beautiful free spirit. My kinda of girl! Check out her blog as well it's called Rachel is a Dreamer
As soon as the doors opened it was a non stop flow of traffic. This was to my left.
To my right.
This Sunday (October 17th) they are having another edition called Dawn of the Thread. Loooove the name and I am looking forward to being part of it again.
