Hi, hope you have a safe and fun Halloween. I haven't posted this week due to a power outage that occurred on Monday. It blew out my front shipping/business computer and so we've been here late nights getting another computer up and running. Ahhhggg! Even fried the hard drive so nothing is recoverable. But I'll get over it! Here's a pic of a neighbor's house decorated all scary looking. I wanted to get a pic at dusk, it would've been better with the blown up pumpkin and ghost.. I'm going down to my sis' and help with make-up, pumpkin carving and holding little hands for trick-or-treating tonight. Will post pix next week.
Since I don't have any jack-o-lantern pictures, here are some orange flowers from my yard!
Above is a picture of the famous Griffith Park Observatory that's up on the hill, from my front yard. My favorite thing about where I live here in Los Feliz (right next to Hollywood), are the Dr. Seuss trees! I'm a native of Los Angeles County and have spent all my life here in Southern California.
I will be writing about what it's like to run a small retail/service business, creating art and craft projects, crocheting, organic gardening, some cooking, a few recipes and getting ready to sell my big fixer upper house!
I have a small retail business that keeps me really busy. My background is fine art and I love to dance, especially tap dance. I used to teach classes for children in art, dance and hand sewing. I like heart motifs and have a tendency to make and buy things that have hearts on them. I also like items with strawberries on 'em, adore African Violets, Hummingbirds and Hedgehogs.
I grew up in a large family and have 2 young-adult children, a daughter, and son. No pets at the moment (boo hoo). When I'm not working at my shop, you can find me busy making something or playing in the dirt because I just love flowers!
