My fun day with Karen at The Woodlands, Tx

Let me tell you about my day Yesterday!! I took a little trip to visit my friend,
Karen Fenter, at The Woodlands, Tx.
It is so Nice there! We had a great time..

Karen is enjoying her favorite dessert-Pecan Pie,
at the Hubbell and Hudson, Market and Bistro..where we had Lunch.

best describes the food there!
We sat by the window to devour our food. We split this Wonderful
Wrap from the Deli, that they put on a grill and brown like a Pannini sort of.
So, then we had plenty of room for dessert.
My dessert was Creme Brulee.... OH GEEZE..
I got to keep the little brown crock dish it comes in, they pack everything up to go.
They have a wonderful array of Deli sandwhiches, Soups, Baked Bread, Wines, Cheese
and Desserts, and Gourmet Gifts.
It's a great restaurant that is near The Woodlands Waterway Marriott,
where the Houston Expo 2010 will be held.
I'll be going back there for Sure!

I don't get out of Brenham much, and Karen mentioned Jerry's Artarama
and I said YES! It only took us a few minutes to drive thru traffic
from The Woodlands to get there. 30 minutes later, we came out with
a car load of canvases and paintbrushes, paints, mediums, and paper clay.
I was like a Kid in a Candy Store. I Love getting new brushes!

I'm ready for some Students Now!

Thank You Karen for hauling me around your City, and
showing me your lovely Home!
Y'all take a look-

It was a treat for me to tour Karen's Home. We talked so much
we were so tired at the end of the day. But not too tired for me
to get Karen in front of her Mac to create a Blog.
I'll link up with her blog as soon as she gets it loaded up with stuff.
And this Home is on the Market now, because Karen and her Husband
are moving! Thank goodness for the internet and SKYPE!
We can keep in touch and see each other!

This was the real treat for My peepers... Karen is an Artist.
See this wonderful piece she has in her home..
My husband Dave and I are going back to Karen and Dave's on Sunday morning because
we're buying this neat Futon Sofa and bringing it back
to El Rancho Guacamole!! YAY!!

We'll be fighting over who's piling up on this by Sunday evening!

Fun with chalk boards

I used a recipe for making my own 
chalkboard paint. I sure like it better than the storebought kind.
And you can make it any color you like!

I attatched mini erasers to the string or fabric, and also 
the chalk.
This one is my favorite, with the eraser and chalk hanging as legs.
The one below is just a stencil pattern. I like the clean simple look of these.

Labor Day Treasure!

Here's my latest garage sale treasure..Cost only $1.00. 
I had to snag this!
It will be great to decorate with this for Labor Day
and Memorial Day, July 4th, and all US Holidays!
There was No artist name on this, I wish they had signed it.
The detail on these is wonderful. Very nicely handcrafted!
