I liked thelook of this candle setup in the ladies room at The Brewery at Tlaquepaque, Sedona, AZ. Took this on Thursday and I wasn't feeling too well. Hadn't been to the ER yet to find out what was actually wrong. I think I might try to set up a candle sculpture in my own bathroom.

I found this fantastic mural in Phoenix on East McDowell. This is only part of the mural.

#100 post - snow, again

This much snow since this morning and it's 4:00pm. More on the way. I'm looking out my front window at the porch railing, the house across the street, and the pine tree in my front yard. I'm housebound for the next 2 days.

Molly in bed w/me - what's wrong with this picture?

What has my life come to? I sleep with a doggie who takes over my pillows?

Stained glass window & patterns

The chapel at Life Care Center of Scottsdale on Becker Lane has this beautiful stained glass window. I took this yesterday when I went to get Mom after her 10 days in skilled nursing. She's back at her assisted living home and seems to be liking it a bit better than she was before she left. In fact she decided that me and Troy should join her for Thanksgiving dinner at Brighton Gardens. And the staff makes great food. It will be a treat to be among lots of people and have someone else doing the cooking and cleaning up.

Waste not, want not

At a recent Bible study, our fearless leader brought an example of using what we have to make something different and successful. She found these at the local dollar store. The Jelly Belly company had the right idea. I want to remember that when I'm doing my own artwork: see what I already have that I've found at yard sales and thrift shops and make do with only a few new supplies.

Some of the belly flops were huge chunks of the little jelly bellies that didn't separate when being originally made. They were very good.
