Kidnapped by LIFE ... again

I suppose it will be this way for a while yet ...three teenagers, three cars, and one car in the shop... too many places to be ...all at the same time. Life has gotten so busy that it kidnapped me, once again, and took me away from my blogging adventure. I love blogging... I really do. But, I just don't have the time for it that I would like to. My family is top priority, and they have schedules to keep. On top of those schedules, I have had three new commissioned pieces to come up in these last few weeks. Yay! So my life is planning itself... and blogging hasn't been in its schedule... until now.

My beautiful daughter has been busy with ballet, and her mom has been busy taking her here, there and everywhere. The result was a spectacular performance of "The Battle for Lucinda's Heart."

Modern dance... "Merrymakers"

Traditional ballet... "Spirits of Darkness"

Then there have been more art shows and three new commissioned pieces... unusual this time of year. In addition, I have built an entire website for a new client since my last post, along with some unusually large updates to other sites that I maintain. Life is definitely an adventure!

Blessings to all my dear blogging friends,

Victorian Tea Party hosted by Cielo at The House in the Roses

Victorian Tea Party

Hosted by Cielo at The House in the Roses.

At Charm & Grace Cottage I have brought in some lovely roses to prepare for our party...

I have picked out an organza apron decorated with a rose, along with my silver service.

I have chosen to use my china... "Hermitage" by Noritake... teacups with my silver "Chippendale" by Towle.

I am serving "Paris" tea by Harney & Sons.

I have enjoyed having you to tea today! Please come back and visit again soon. To visit others having a tea party today, visit Cielo's House in the Roses.
