I have completed one page of Sherry's RR recipe Journal. She asked for Coffee recipes. One of the birthday gifts from My Sister, Jo, was watercolor pencils. So, I had to try them out. The coffee pot and mugs are done with the watercolor pencils. It was fun.
Now one more page in Sherry's journal to go.

Our Daughter, Tonya and her husband, Patrick gave this to me for my birthday. It is some kind of old sewing cabinet. I think the top is not original...but the pieces married well together, I think.
The very top part of the first picture is a Hosier cabinet...so ignore that part. The other two pictures are looking inside the bottom two drawers. I'll try to replace that top picture tomorrow when the sun is shinning and I can get a better picture.

In the middle of the night....I was wide awake...my muse would not leave me alone. So, I worked or played depending on how what you consider work or play until about 4:00 am. And yet another ATD came to being. I used Judi W's pattern to Create/Make.. Go Fly A Kite. I am not sure about her...but I don't think she means it in a good way.
Her eyes look black in the photo...but they really are a pretty blue.
Thanks Judi for the pattern.

Two more!! They passed the husband test. He laughed out loud when he saw them. He asked me where I got my ideas. I told him I didn't know. He said, Well they are cute. I'll take that as a compliment.
Where do these ideas come from? Ok, one came from the bird, the ladies reminded me of me and those garden ornaments people use to have in their yards (you know the fat ladies bending over made of plywood), the Garden Goddess..well..Spring (it has been in the 60's here today and Jacque was on my mind and she is a Garden Goddess, the last one.. the phrase is one I used on a ATC and it was laying on my work table. And Sherry's pattern reminded me of balloons. So to answer my own question. The ideas come from 50 almost 60 years of seeing...not looking but really seeing things. So much for my philosophizing! Is that a word?

This is that same basic Pattern that Sherry so generously gave us. It can be so many things. It just begs to be something different every time I see it. The other morning, it was cold, and there was a little bird sitting on the railing of the porch. He was all puffed up and what did I see...Yep, Sherry's pattern. Some how the image changed as I was creating the little fat bird.

Two more pages in the RR recipe swap. This wonderful book belongs to Judi A. She wanted regional type recipes. So what could be more Kentucky than Derby Pie. My oldest daughter said, "A Hot Brown, Mom." She may be right. But I already had Derby in my brain. I scanned a small painting I had done of a Thorough Bred colt and included it on one page.

Sherry, Jacque and Judi W have done it now. Sucked me into a new internet group. Artist Trading Dolls. I got hooked real quick. I just haven't quite got a good hand on the Artistic Paper Doll yet. What you don't believe me? Look for yourself. This is a different picture than the one last night. I took this one in the daylight...sure beats the other one taken with a flash.
