Belated Thanksgiving Pics

Our family joined Charlie's godparent's family for thanksgiving this year. We rented a condo on South Padre Island, and the owner was clearly an artist. There were wonderful original pieces of art all over the house including:

This one, which was in the entry-area bathroom. I looked at it for a whole day before someone mentioned to me that it's a picture of a nude beach. The photo is just blurry enough for a Family Blog like this one. There's a stuffed boypart I think on the person with the red towel that you can't see here that just made me laugh. I'm a real fan of nude art in bathrooms--it just seems like a natural fit to me.

And in our friend's bedroom was this magificent pillow:

Here's a detail of the side view of the pillow:

What a surprising delight to be surrounded by original art on our vacation. We couldn't have planned it better.

(aside: It's GREAT to be back to blogging. My computer and I aren't friends yet, but we're learning how to work together.)

Inchies conclusion (part 1)

For those of you who like closure, I'll let you know that the Craft Fair went well. Our booth sold Plum Puddings, pen and ink drawings of our church, and Inchies. We made a little over $300. Not bad!

We've got many inchies left over. I'm going to make some into greeting cards and offer them and some of the other types to our diocesan bookstore to sell.

Oh, much is getting done.
But learning how to deal with a new computer isn't one of them.

When I learn how to upload pics to/from my new Mac laptop, I'll post my backlogs.
Target date: January 10.
