I hope you all enjoy a wonderful holiday with friends and family and best wishes for 2011. It promises to be a wonderful new year!
I just couldn’t wait to add these to the shop today:
I’m so excited about Christmas this year, and these were so much fun to make! I just started to experiment with watercolors, and I love them. More to come soon!

My print “henri with hearts- aqua/red” was featured in an etsy treasury today!
I love these colors together. What an honor to be featured in such a beautiful treasury!
I found out the other day that our Thanksgiving vacation to Palm Springs has been booked…it’s on!
Last year was so hectic with the new addition to the family I didn’t get to share my trip with you but rest assured I had a fabulous time in Palm Springs. Aside from the heat of course, it’s my kind of town. Fashionable, foodie, comfortable and relaxing…what more can you ask for? I’m really looking forward to going again this year and I thought I’d share a few pics from the last year with you, since I haven’t gotten around to it before. Are you ready?
I rode up there in my usual spot:
When I arrived I saw immediately that I would feel at home here:
And of course, I did make myself right at home. There was lots of this:
A little of this:
Oh and did I mention this??:
Can’t wait to go back!
When the heat of summer hits my favorite time of day to walk is the evening. It’s cool, breezy, and everything glows in the fading light. The perfect setting for a portrait:
Recently, our family went on a vacation. We didn’t all go to the same place, though. Jon, Liz & Noah went to England, and I went to stay at the lovely home my friend Stella the shitzu and her owner, Christina, for two whole weeks!
It was a brilliant holiday for everyone. I got to play with Stella every day, lay in Christina’s bed and watch movies, eat lots of treats and I had two beds to sleep in, two bowls to eat out of, etc. It was wonderful. Here are a few snaps from my stay, taken by Christina:
I admit, when Liz came to the door I was less enthusiastic than perhaps I should have been. What can I say, I was reluctant to leave!
But, when I got home, my little brother was waiting for me, and he was SO excited to see me. I was even a little bit excited to see him. Here we are, together again:
It’s good to be home.
