Happy Belated.........

I had been without a computer for about a week so I didn't get to post last week about Valentine's Day or Mardi Gras.
  So I'm doing it now anyway - better late than never!  Here is our Valentine breakfast:
Lox and bagels and yummy cupcakes get a thumbs up from hubby!

Two days later was Fat Tuesday, so of course we had a King's Cake. 

Here it is before the baby was hidden inside.

Tradition says that finding the baby is good luck.  Bob got the baby with the very first slice.  Laissez les bons temps rouler - Let the good times roll!

Our youngest came home from college last weekend, so of course that was also a celebration!

Vintage Valentine

I've been going through old photos lately and came across this one of me as a little girl.  I've hardly changed a bit - lol! 

I found one of my mother that I especially love.  This is her high school graduation picture.  When I was a little girl my grandmother had this photo in her bedroom and I thought my mother looked so glamorous!
I have Mom's old charm bracelet, which is a collection of hearts.  When she was a girl all the girls had them and they would give each other heart charms with their names or initials engraved on the back, as a token of friendship.  I thought it would be fun to wear it as a necklace this Valentine's Day, so I added some ribbon to the clasps so lengthen it.

I also decorated the house this weekend for Valentine's Day.  I put a couple of paper dolls on the bookshelf.

"Love Mermaid"

             "Secret Sky Angel"     
"Heart of My Heart" on the side table

"Love Unmasked" on the mantle

"Valentina" and the Valentine tree

I just got back from another weekend in Galveston.  I entered another show there at the Galveston Art League and had two pieces accepted..... and won second place in the 3-d category!
  Here I am at the reception. :)

The piece that won second place is "Forest Canticle".  My other piece in the show is "Living Waters", the reclining figure next to it.
