It's spring and Dana's moving day

It seems so long since I've made any art, and today is no exception. Today is Dana's big move day. The movers will be at her place, as will I, in less than an hour. Since I've made no art, I thought I would share a day last week when I got my veggie plants.

Lots of color.

Flowers everywhere you looked.

For me, it was all about the veggies: Roma and Sweet 100 tomatoes, yellow and green bell peppers.

They were busy sunning in the garden, getting used to their new home

while the rest of the garden was growing at a good pace

except for the spinach, which has yet to show itself.

I even managed to plant some of the tomatoes before I ran out of garden space. What's a girl to do?

Since I'm not making any art (and haven't since last week), I thought you might like to see a blog that is filled to the brim with awesome art. It belongs to the talented Marie Segal, who lives in the land of sunshine (CA). I had bookmarked her blog during OWOH and imagine my surprise that this talented artist would actually follow ME!! Her clay art is beyond belief. She makes hearts that are out of this world, and some are steampunk inspired, a style I really hope to get into soon. Marie's blog is called Art from my Heart and I can assure you it does. In fact, it makes me want to get out my polymer clay and start playing. If you like polymer clay, hearts, color, and a great artist, you must check out Marie's blog. She's also having a great giveaway that ends tonight, so don't dally getting there.

And wish me unsore (is that a real word?) wishes today as Dana's move takes place with me in the thick of things. Sorry I have NOT BEEN ABLE TO VISIT everyone this weekend (not enough hours in a day), but I promise to show up after the move to see what everyone has been up to.

I'm sending good vibes your way for a smooth move. You're an awesome friend to Dana, Elizabeth. She's so lucky to have your help and support. Moves are tough, but they're a whole lot easier (ane more fun) when a good friend is helping out. Hugs, Terri xoxo

I'll go check out the clay lady now. Thanks for the heads up. Yes, that is all I need one more blog to follow. LOL

Muscles that are unused come into play when we garden each year. Being sore is worth it though.

I too have been drawn to the beautiful color at the nurseries lately. I have had to do a lot of winter clean-up first in the yard before I will buy any new plants though. So I will weed on and then plant! Take it easy!

Marie S said...

Wow, have fun and may you be unsore.
Thank you so much for featuring my blog. I am so grateful for that.
What a very nice thing to do.

You and Dana take real good care of yourselves as you do the move! That can be so much more fun with a friend around and as it was said earlier, you are a very good friend to Dana - and I am sure it is a mutual friend-thing! Take care, girlfriend!

Nurseries and spring go hand in hand. It's an art form I believe! Slow and easy doing the move! xxoo

Here's to being unsore and helping Dana have a successful move- what a wonderful friend you are to do this! Also, I too would love to play with creating some steampunk sometime soon.....
