Dessert Phlox!

Sorry I havent been around much...been so busy with babysitting my Hattie and having to do domestic stuff. Plus as I said before we moved into a new home last year so we have been working on landscaping our yard. I wanted so much last year to take pictures of these desert Phlox and didnt get around to it. We live kind of in a desert area but soon there will be houses where these lovely patches of phlox and sage brush are...pluse jack rabbits and cotton tail rabbits habitat..Makes me sad to think of their home being gone. But these phlox are just breath taking. They grow in nice round bundles but then take off up into the sage brush if they sprout close by a bush...
I am still painting roses and trying my hand at scrapebooking. So fun. I really need to clean up my painting terrible looking..but between taking care of my antique booth and taking care of Hattie it doesnt get much done. Where Woman Create is having a contest and you are to enter your craft studio with pictures..But not this gal.. everyone would be appauled to see mine. I just need to organize my stuff. I price my antiques,paint,make collages and other stuff all in an extra bedroom which is not to big. So until next time I post.. blessings to you all! Sally

Family Tradition Easter Eggs!

Didn't these eggs turn out lovely? My mother colored these eggs with onion skins every year well plus we always growing up got to color eggs with all the dye kits..but these were a tradition that was done by the woman in my family.
One year when I was about 8 or so I told her they were ugly..and I only liked the colored easter eggs. I dont remember her saying any thing to my comment. But when I complained about something she would say to me (Okay old girl you can do or will do something)Ha!Ha! Well I was a brat sometimes. I lost my mother and father over 20 yrs ago...miss them.
Well hope everyone had a wonderful Easter..we were with our HattieJane. It was wonderful and can you believe it she is going to be 2 soon. Can't wait to color easter eggs with her..Until the next time...sally
