Hi.  :)

Went up the mountain today, to try to get some pics of the foliage changing colors.  It was hazy and windy.  I put my camera on the "action" setting in hopes I would get some decent pictures.   Here are a few.

Cameron's Bluff

I took some pics of my precious girl...
check this one out... she's sitting at the ledge and her first initial is written in the sky... 
Then... she took a pic of me.                                                                                                                      Here's a picture of my hubby too.
 My son was working, so I don't have a pic of him.  :(

The wind was a little nippy, but it was beautiful to be out and looking out over the towns the surround us.



What's the last movie you watched?


As promised, here is the angel and Christmas tree I've been working on.   They are made from pages of a order catalog, I brought home from work.    

I painted the angel white with gilded brass on the wing tips and then sprinkled glitter over it while it was wet.  The head is a wooden ball and the hair is yarn.

I painted the Christmas tree dark green and glittered it while it was wet.  The star is painted with the gilded brass color.     

When I started painting them, yesterday, it was calm outside.  The wind picked up and started to blow about halfway through.   It was a chore to get that glitter to go where I wanted it to.  :)  The angel tried to take flight too!   But, everything managed to turn out okay. 


Seeing the pretty foliage today, reminded of a haiku I wrote several years ago.

God's palette for Fall,
Brown, green, yellow, orange, red,
Painting the landscape.

I guess that's it for now.    

Have a wonderful weekend!   

God bless and keep you,

My answer to yesterday's question: my daughter says I'm most like my mom.   :)
