This is a lovely watercolor ACEO I bought for Mom on Etsy.com from Victoria Usova. I love, love, love her work. I got a different ACEO for myself - amazingly, DH really likes it. (He's usually oblivious to such things.) ACEOs are a great way to have some nice art for a really reasonable price.
Mom's house has fun things in it. She has a great cat that I love, Honey. Honey is just as sweet as her name.
Mom is very politically active. We're all big Democrats, as you can tell by this on the side of her 'frig. And she lurves kitties.
Since Mom lives in NC apple country, I have to buy fresh apples while I'm there in the fall, some to share with friends, too. I bought a peck of Macintosh apples and a half bushel of Honey Crisp this time. MMMMM.
Saturday, I had to get up early to get to make the drive to Tat Days. Really early, since my first class started at 8:30, and Mom's place is a two hour drive away.
There was a lot of mist on the drive to Winnsboro, SC, where Tat Days is held. Winnsboro is way out there in God's country, way, way away from anything. Thirty miles down this winding road.
Lots of farm lands. Gorgeous. I saw many critters, like cattle, goats, and horses. A doe ran across the road and flipped its white tail at me.
Some places had decorative gates. I saw one place (I wish I had a picture) with a table out under a big oak in front of the house, with containers sitting out on it. The hand lettered sign out front read "RED WORMS". Sometimes I wish I lived in the country, not in the 'burbs.
