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

Thank you so much for visiting and leaving very nice comments on my blog, I found your blog : ) and you have also very nice paintings, I love the paintings on the furniture... And it looks like we both are happy antique hunters. You have a lovely blog, keep it up (I know you are busy with your grandaughter... who is very pretty...).

Question, is dessert Phlox scented at all? I really like the white one.

Hi, Thanks for visiting my blog and entering my giveaway!
I love the little bird in the tea cup painting on your sidebar. What a sweet place to hang a hat!

Rosemary said...

Hi again,
I was thinking of using the drop cloths for drapes too!
If you go to The Lettered Cottage, she did that. You just have to look back at her posts.
Have a great day!

The phlox are beautiful!!!! Thank you for stopping by to visit & become a follower. And most of all for your sweet comments on the loss of my precious Princess. My heart aches for her. I see you lost sweet Hank in February also. A sad month for sure. Hope you have a wonderful week. Charlene

Thanks for coming by my blog. I was actually in the Tri Cities about a month ago,,, You can rad about my "misadventures" on an older post. In a nut shell, rv problems...on the way to a show in Pullman, was a week
waiting to have it fixed, shopped all over, but LOVED the Rusty Pelican.
Wouldn't it be funny if I bought some of your stuff? Hope you are going to Farm Chicks if so be sure and say HI!

Hi my dear,
I've been a bad blog friend lately. far behind with my blogging and the rest of my life which is a total mess. Changed my jobback in March and it is all so challanging and time consuming since I do not want to disappoint my new boss. Plus I'm looking for a new home and this is also time consuming: as i like to say this is like a second full-time job. lol
My daughter is driving us nuts getting ready for her junior high leaving examination.... can't wait for it to be over.
Did I tell you she also has a boyfriend? They've been dating for 8 months now and this is also driving us nuts.
so, put it all together, I hardly have any time for blogging and least of all for the much longed for visits to my dearest blog friends like you.
Love our phlox. If I ever manage to find a new home with a small garden i want to devote all my spare time to make th nicest possible garden possible.
can't wait to see more of your painting. so hurry up!!!

I have been going crazy looking for the magazine. I always buy it,
but for some reason it's taking longer to find. I hope it looks good, can't wait to see it. I have been waiting to post on my blog about it when I get it. They like you to keep it a secret ahead of time. I'm also going to have a little crown giveaway. Stay tuned.

Sally...I have a pull away cart I use by my painting station. Because the rooms have carpet (hate that) and I don't want to take it up (hope to have a new studio built this year out back) I make do with what I have. The cart is jammed full of paint and brush, etc, AND a drop cloth because I had a terrible near-miss once with black paint that freaked me out!

Hi Sally, Lovely pics of desert phlox. Maybe you could paint them too. I know you would do a lovely design of them. Have fun setting up your studio and hope we can visit it next year or sooner.

Thank you for stopping by and your kind comments. I have that brush cleaner but mine is hand held when I washout my brushes. Had it for years from the Artist Club.

Enjoy your weekend and so nice to see you.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
