Saturday at the Nursery...

This past week has been pretty wonderful. Donna (Bobby's mom/my future mother-in-law) celebrated a wonderful birthday on Thursday. We cooked out and celebrated with her. On Friday, Bobby and I headed back up to Donna and Jason's house for a weekend sleepover. I had Saturday off from rehearsal, so we all pitched in and made a wonderful meal. And it was vegetarian! Bobby and I are eating vegetarian at the moment. I don't have any big reason for it, we just sort of fell into it. Anyway...
Saturday morning Donna, Bobby, and I got up (Jason made French toast!) and headed over to South Seminole Farm and Nursery in Casselberry for an organic gardening class. It was wonderful to be at the nursery on a clear, not too hot morning with family. Here are some pics I took there.

This is a Seminole Pumpkin. It is one of the few pumpkins that grows really well down in Florida. It was discovered growing in the Everglades hundreds of years ago. And rumor has it that it is quite tasty. I got some free seeds so I'm gonna plant them and enjoy!

Don't you love/Aren't you jealous that pineapple yummily grows in Florida? Who needs Hawaii? Well, I do. I haven't been yet so I actually do need that great state to hang around. But look at these pineapple plants...aren't they cool????

I don't remember the name but I love the blooms and the wide leaves.

I'm terrible about writing down names of I don't remember what this is either. But you might. Let me know if know. I get distracted by pretty things.

p.s. I really do have some pics of bags coming up...I do need to write a sewing post tomorrow. I promise I will

War of the Worlds Photos...

Well, not real photos, but watercolors that capture our rehearsals better than any photo could. The artist is Thomas Thorspecken and he has a great website. I beg you to check it out. And I have never been captured in watercolor before so of course it is kinda exciting.

This was the first day of rehearsal. I'm on the far left (in case you wondered what I look like in watercolor.) Isn't Thomas such a cool artist.

We were doing ViewPoints in this picture. I'm the chubby one in the middle. 

This is a little discussion time. Again, I'm on the left. My tummy is hanging out. I love that Thomas won't cut me a break and leave out my chub! Thanks Thomas!

p.s. I've got some WIP's to take some pictures of for you. Soon! I promise!
p.p.s. Rhoda is now on Hulu! How do you not love this show?

I'm doing a show...

It is called "War of the Worlds." You may have heard of it at some point in your life. But it is not typical. It is the radio show...but we're also devising different scenes around the show. Like the public reaction and things like that. I'm also sore from doing Viewpoints. I need to warm up more. Look up Viewpoints if you are interested. It is really fab. I also have a callback in a couple of hours for "How I Became a Pirate." Wish me luck

Some new fabric...

Just showing you some pics...I love them all. I can't wait.

Yeah, okay...I didn't iron them after coming out of the dryer. Sue me. 

Another Obsession...

I don't know if I've ever mentioned my obsession with beadwork. Specifically, Indian (or Native American) beadwork. Truly, totally obsessed.  So, when Bobby and I hit up the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, I was dying from all the beadwork. So I took some pictures for you. I hope you love it as much as I do.

This is all contemporary beadwork and it is all fabulous. Seriously? Teeny, tiny seed beads? How amazing is it?

Here is a close shot of the beadwork. I mean look at it! Teeny tiny...I wasn't kidding. And of course, pictures cannot do it justice. Man, I love it!

This is fabulous too. It just makes me want to do beadwork. 

This isn't beadwork, but antique embroidery. It is from the late 1800s and it was so beautiful. 
I just wanted to share it all. 
ps...I promise there will be some sewing stuff on here soon!

Headed home...

Back to Florida and all things tropical. Am finished with work/vacation here in the great state of Oklahoma. Bobby flew up a couple of days ago and we are about to hit the road together. I'm thrilled. Happy Travels
