this is what happened when my boys found a box of old knobs and hardware....nate called me down to see what he made....mighty cool, aye?
once they found out they could make cars out of some knobs....forget it. hours of creative fun....who would have thought?
here's a shot of them busy at work....
on to the ornaments....i have been having a wonderful time working with clay again...just so nice to work in 3D! if anyone is in the philly area, the opening at Art Star is the saturday night after Thanksgiving. i can't wait to see what all of the other artists have made. i do seem to be getting better at them now....here's a shot of my girls before going off to the gallery:
i'll be working on more ornaments for the next couple of weeks for my etsy shop...so check them out!
now the garden cafe...oh my. it was sooooo lovely. it was my friend Danielle's birthday so she chose this place for us to brunch and celebrate. all i heard was it was bought by Antropologie (do i need to say more?) and i am going to lose my mind. hmmmm....couldn't wait.
it was a garden center/shop/yummy cozy cafe/and fields of wintery trees, plants and christmas greens... ok here's some pix to help explain:
ok. i'm realizing these pictures do this place NO justice at all....what was i thinking? i wasn't. i was too into where i was and taking in all the yummy goodies. i think this may be the worst section in the whole place. ah well.....maybe the link has better shots...so here tis: terrain at Styers
at least i was able to capture a cute shot of nate and henry with their favorite girlfriend, Zoe. henry was especially smitten this time.
sooooo..only 4 weeks till the little one arrives... trying to soak up every moment of coziness with my boys until then....
funny. you can't see how big my belly really is!! so here's this one:
still can't get the full effect of how big ass my belly is. .....ah, patterned shirts can hide lots. whatever. nate tells me lovingly how fat i am every day. but, i also get "mommy, you are so beautiful and lovely"....daily as well. yup. i'm a lucky mama. and i get to have another boy!!! seriously....how lucky am i? off to cuddle and watch a movie with my boys....nite nite.
