We have been spending time this month planning for our ‘Home Gatherings’ with Pizza and Pachisi.
Perfecting our Game…and our Pizza.
A month of enjoying each others company and All Things Art & Home.
While most of January was spent feeling ‘under the weather’….it gave me time to settle into a few books, a few movies and a few good soup recipes. Including Chili Mac & Cheese Soup found thru Pinterest (here).
We have a freezer full of meals and tons of sweets to choose from.
Have been thinking of breaking out the waffle maker and fondue pot too.
In the Studio and At Home
‘Been planning some updates to the Studio, including additional fabric wall paper, shelving above a closet and doorway and shuffling some furniture around too.
On the homefront we have been planning some clean-outs, some organizing projects, some new home renos, including planning for the garden.
Just in this image below there are sooooo many little projects planned….wainscotting, iron hooks, a mural, a chalkboard, shelving, area carpeting and a painted table.
What I love about this image…..the cookbooks lined up and waiting for their turn, the guitar fills our home with music, the jean jackets hanging on the hooks for style and warmth, the new kitchen floor we worked on together, and the photos of our puppy Ruger (RIP).
a real home.
I managed to clean the gallery wall in the Studio this month~ boxing up a few and re-arranging always makes the Artwork feel fresh. Below is an older pic of the Studio Office with the Gallery Wall….so much newness has happened just in this space alone…..mmm, maybe a new tour is due!
Always evolving….. a year can make a huge difference.
One of the updates shown below…and shared (here).

My ‘book of the month’ habit and hobby is forever growing.
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you that all thru school and even into my adult life ~ comprehension was not my strong suit. I could read a whole book but could not tell you what the story was about. I read words but didn’t comprehend them.
I still struggle to this day….so maybe this new habit will help me out just a bit.
Embarrassing my Mom
My Mom went into our school for parent teacher conferences. I have 3 siblings and she attended for each of us, lucky Mom. When it was time to visit my 6th grade teacher, Mr Forte….he showed her a book we were to read and then write a summary. Then he showed her my summary…. I copied the back cover word for word. Oh, I am pretty sure I read the book….but never comprehended any of it.
Did he happen to show you my Art Work?
