what a wonderful week...



as you all know i just celebrated my 50th birthday....my 'florida' family loaded into 3 cars and made the long trek to the mountains to celebrate with me...and a good time was had by all - just look at some of the pictures!





this is an old church out in the country...we decided to take a day trip driving through the mountains to spot barn quilts....if you haven't seen these before, google your area and see if they are painting barns with quilt blocks...there were so many to see on the small country roads, that we've decided every year we will go in search of more...









we decided to take an early morning hike down to the waterfalls, actually i am an early morning person, and being my birthday, my sisters couldn't say no!~....my youngest, who is 9 going on the much dreaded 13 year old 'attitude', hiked along...i think his choice of t-shirt was fitting...










later that night a party was thrown by my hubby and parents....and off they all went...always to short of a visit...

A HAPPY HAPPY Day to you!
How wonderful that your family got to come celebrate with you!
I would have gone hiking with you ~ my mom and daddy always had me out tromping around in the woods, lol!

Hi Diane,

I received my Dorothy game board today and I absolutely love it! It now has a place of honor in our game room.

Beautiful!

The wonderful board arrived and is at the cabin. We all had a tournament; I lost. It's so perfect up there; the others are on a wall. Thanks much for the checkers too. judy

hi diane,


gameboard arrived a couple of days ago ( it did take a couple of days longer than Fed Ex said) but not to mind because it is here now and I love it!


of the 3 boards I have bought from you this is my favorite, love the subtle colors especially the very dark purple. it looks beautiful with everything else in the room.


thank you for your work and artistry.
