Winter Dreams ~ I guess dreaming is all I can do since we can't seem to get any snow here in central Virginia. We were supposed to get 1-2 inches last night and today but all the snow stopped at the border of North Carolina, south of us. I got all excited last night to see about 10 snowflakes blowing in the light on the porch but that's all we got. This little ACEO size painting is done in acrylics and I listed this in Ebay for the nfac contest which has the theme of 'Winter wonderland' this month. Here's the link for my listing and I guess the only snow I'll see is in my paintings unless mother nature gives us a surprise!

Pretty in Blue ~ This is my African violet flower soaking up some sunshine on the kitchen table. I got this little flower in a basket of plants back when my Mom passed away and that was in June '07. This is the first time I had tried to grow an African violet and my Mom always had really gorgeous ones blooming in the house when I was growing up. I'm hoping I inherited her green thumb since I've always loved plants too!
