Polish Art Center

One of our stops when we were in Detroit was the Polish Art Center in Hamtramck.  It has a beautiful selection of Polish Pottery.  It is so beautiful.  This is a small batter bowl that I picked up for myself. 

Two little ceramic spoons with hand painted decorations.

The back as pretty as the front.

Inside of the batter bowl, as pretty as the outside. 

Hope you enjoyed.

snow, Snow, %&^$ SNOW !!!

A few pictures of our wonderful snow.  There is a pool under this.  Hoping for a warm spell this week.  They tell us possible 50 degrees on Thursday. 

This was a very recent pretty cold morning. 

White just keeps going on and on. 

Tom and the neighbor try to keep the drain open.

Keeping the mailboxes cut out so we can receive our mail.  I haven't heard the official count yet of all the snow.  

Thanks for sharing in our will go away soon.

Billy Joel for Valentines Day

Along with my beautiful box of chocolates and card we treated ourselves to a concert of Billy Joel  in Auburn Hills Michigan 

We were very high up and there were televisions showing what was going on at the stage.  The concert was fabulous!  I wish it would have gone on longer but he sang for a solid two hours. 

This was during Piano Man and the crowd sang along.  It was very moving.  I have to say that is probably my favorite song.

Nancy and Dave our friends.  They love to go to concerts.  We went with them last April
to see Bob Segar, here at the Palace also.  We always have a good time with them.

He is almost 65 years old and creaks and is stiff when he gets up too.  An amusing thing he had to say...Hello I'm Billy Joel....isn't that a silly name for someone my age?  Billy-I couldn't imagine anything different.  I did read that he had surgery to replace hip joints so that would explain the stiffness.   

This is a big arena.  The Detroit Pistons Basketball team  play here. 
Thank you Billy Joel for a really nice Valentines Day.  We enjoyed it so much!

Monkey Quilt update

I have cut out the flowers that I am going to applique onto the little quilt.  I have got to turn the edges under to ready them to sew on, they will also have little yo yo's for the middles in red and also green leaves.  I feel it will be pretty cute when it's done.  It will cover up the spots well. 
I have added a few more rows to Kevin's quilt also.  It will end up having a couple of borders and black and white checked binding.  His bed is a queen size and ours is a king so the seven blocks across are a good size along with the two borders it should be right.  I am going to trace pictures of things that he likes in the white blocks and quilt those in to make it personal.  Still a lot of work to go, but it is coming along. 

I appreciate your stopping by.

Cat Party painting

I have the first couple of layers of watercolor on the picture.  I will take a lot of time of the cats to catch their personalities correctly.  There is much work to do yet.
