Rich Fall Colors ~

Oh I love that Fall is here! I love the beautiful colors as leaves turn from green to rich browns, yellows  orange. This year we may have made it through fire season. Cooler nights, damp dewy mornings plus rain is coming. September and October can be so hot and windy. It can be a time of anxiety and being prepared to evacuate in case of wildfires at a moment’s notice. All things considered I am starting to relax with each passing day. 
Now onto the beautiful art work in today’s post. The rich fall colors, sumptuous fabrics and lovely ladies reflect the season. The fall fairy can be used for cards or any of your creations. I hope you have a wonderful day!
So glad you found my blog. Sending love to everyone, Louise ❤️

My Grandmother's Garden ~ Nasturtiums & Walks With my Grandparents~Montecito before Prince Harry and Meghan

Along the lane where my grandparents lived was a stream. In one section the banks were covered in cheerful yellow nasturtiums. When I was a little girl walking every afternoon with my grandfather it was a favorite stop. The sunlight filtered through the trees and the little seasonal creek was so pretty. My grandparents lived in Montecito, California. This was years ago before it became so popular with celebrities. Before Oprah, Meghan and Prince Harry. Movie stars were not pursued by paparazzi. Back then it was a quiet little village where I walked on the beach, roamed Manning park and was treated to ice cream in the little drugstore. My love for Montecito came from my grandparents love.

Fine art to use in your crafts card making and journaling all for free.

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. This afternoon there was the biggest thunder and lightning storm I have ever experienced!  Very exciting! It shook my bed as if there was an earthquake. So glad we had some rain as we really need it here in California. The neighbor’s children had so much fun with all the hail that was coming down. It’s not big but little tiny bits of ice that we only experience once in a while. They bounce on the ground and barely accumulate. A nice break from our dry weather. 
Today I have some beautiful paintings of lovely women in big hats. Enjoy them or use them in your projects making cards, decorating junk journals and collage. They are from museums that have open source images for you to use. So glad you found my blog and hope you have a wonderful day full of happiness and creativity
