And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.Philippians 1:6

The Rainbow is a sign of a Promise kept and also a reminder that we serve a God that makes and keeps Promises . Amen !Praise Jesus !

Back Story : This pic was taken one afternoon in May after a Spring shower as I was stepping out the door of our home town Wendy's ,hence the wires & signs.

Eclectic Reds

Hello Blog Friends,

A have an eclectic collection of reds today. Here is a vintage 1957 Whitman copy of WOZ . I ordered a WOZ pop-up book from Amazon and they accidentally send this , but I decided to keep it . I had never seen this before & also it was the style of artwork that was popular in school books in the early 60's when I first started grade school .

I love these cute little red-haired pixie girls! I made a offer for these on Ebay and got them for a reduced price .

Next two are GW Finds .I love Disney and I have become quite fond of gnomes thanks to the good influence of Blogging friend Jackie ,at Once Upon a Fairyland .

I fell in love with this Black & red teapot ,it is a new item . Great for Valentine's Day Or goes right along with an Alice in Wonderland theme ,too

I am so glad you stopped by , Have a wonderful Day !

Pics from around the Yard : )

Hello Friends,
I was walking around my yard yesterday,looking to make some yellow or blue pics. I was surprised that I found some,after the soaring heat this summer,most things were not looking so good. It has cooled to more normal temps and things are looking somewhat better.

The bottle tree kept right on blooming in spite of it all. he he

The heat hasn't affected this happy little guy,either.

The beach balls seem to flourish in the heat. lol

Glazing Balls also have an amazing tolerant for summer heat.

I live on a wooded lot and it is almost like living in a desert for plants.I put a lot of things in pots. Trees take an enormous amount of water and nutrients from the soil. But I do love the woods!

Love & Blessings,

Wizard Of Oz Artist Trading Cards

Hello Friends,
Today I'm joining Two Crazy Crafters, Twyla and Lindsey's Wizard of Oz ATC Blog Hop. The Wizard of Oz Is my favorite movie . I have very fond memories watching it as a child .Back in the 1960's it came on TV as a special event once a year. I always looked forward to it .

I have created three ATCs with my original artwork. They are displayed below with some Ruby Slippers from my WOZ Collection.

Here is my interpretation of Glenda the Good Witch in her pink bubble. Glenda has always been my favorite WOZ character.

Here is a rainbow with a Blue Bird flying somewhere over. Judy Garland is my favorite singer and of her singing Over the Rainbow is my favorite song .

Here is my Dorothy and Toto walking along the yellow brick road . They do not notice they are being followed by that pink bubble. lol

A clip from WOZ of Over the Rainbow

"It's not a place you can get to by boat or a train , It's far , far away ,behind the moon ,beyond the rain." But it's somewhere that will live in our hearts and imaginations forever!

Spotting Reds at the Mall

Hello Everyone ! It's that time of the week for Reds to be on Parade . I spotted quite a few while I was out this weekend at the Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, NC. We(Me, Hubby & granddaughter #1) stopped by the Disney Store . I love Winnie the Pooh. Some of my favorite Poohisms :

"I wonder what Piglet is doing ?" thought Pooh ."I wish I was there to be doing it, too. "

"When late morning rolls around and you are feeling a bit out of sorts .Don't worry , you're probably just a little eleven 'o clockish . "

"If you live to 100. I wish to live to be 100 minus one day , so I'll never have to spend a day without you ."

A mountain of stuffed animals in the Disney store.

I spotted these fabulous looking red heels. I was just looking, I don't love them enough to go through the ordeal of wearing them . lol

We stopped in the Sanrio Store.This store is full of Cute and Red. Here is Hello Kitty, herself.

This a very cute little red mushroom filled with erasers.

I love this apron !

Red Egg, very cute !

While at the Mall,we stopped to eat at Andy's Grill. The Retro Decor was actually pink & aqua.

This cool red vintage car was on the outside of the restaurant.

We, also stopped at the NC Art Museum, those pics are in my OutDoor Wednesday Post . I am always glad when you stop by , Have a wonderful day !
