Sunrise , painted studio, and a few new blooms.

This morning I couldn't resist snapping a few pics of the sunrise. I wish I could capture the true colors but these will give you an idea if you imagine intense Fuchsia and Periwinkle.........
See who also enjoys a beautiful morning?
DH calls her a donkey because of the way she sits. She is comical.
The fallen limb was cleaned up but the tree still stands until we decide how to tackle it. The two surviving limbs will most likely fall into the road. The tree looks so strange now like it was cut right down the center.  I will miss the beautiful golden leaves when it goes.
I took a walk through the garden and found my Foxglove I had planted from seed was in bloom.
The Campanula's have spread everywhere. I don't mind because they are so pretty.
The Golden  loosestrife is blooming as well. A nice touch of yellow.
The Peonies bloomed during the three days of rain and they ruined. I missed bringing in bouquets this year. Phooey! Mom's are about to bloom so perhaps I can swap a Mocha Frappe for a few blooms?????

I finished painting my studio about an hour ago. It took three days to reorganize and paint. I love the soft creamy color that I had painted the trim and upstairs walls in Nov/Dec, so I continued it into the studio. It looks much brighter and fresh. I moved all my bead racks to one wall and the cream background makes it easier to choose colors. Less distracting I think.

I took down the silk Dupioni curtain and now have easier access to the shelves.

 I am anxious to start new projects in this brighter space. As I organized drawers and handled embellishments my mind was going a mile a minute with projects I want to start. I do believe that I am officially finished with home and yard tasks and am now ready to relax and enjoy all the hours I have worked the past few months. The forecast calls for three days of sunshine and 80 degree temps.

Perhaps a new batch of Strawberry Daiquiris are in order????????????????


  1. So sad to have to take the tree down, but sometimes necessary.
    Your studio is wonderful. So organized. May I ask how your DH made those fantastic bead holders? The idea is ideal. Angel and Teddy sit the same way. It cracks me up. Enjoy those strawberry daq's..

  2. Gorgeous Photos Pat! And your studio looks great! I didn't see a button on your sidebar, are you taking part in Karen Valentines "Where Bloggers Create?"
