Nadia's ATCs, Blue Skies, Found Art and a Good Book!

A while back Nadia in Nederland asked if I wanted to trade ATCs with her! She sent me these that arrived in yesterdays mail! The one on the left is called Golden Ocean and the one on the right is called Chinese Characters. They are both made of fabrics, top machine sewn...Lovely. You can see more of her art on her blog: Thank you Nadia! When I got home this afternoon the skies looked like this in our neighborhood. We had a quick short lived rain a few hours after I captured this beautiful sky with camera.
This is a little collage I made at that watercolor class a few weeks back...just torn papers I had painted first.
And I found these pears in my sketch book.
Now I must get on to something new to share!
I cleaned up my design table today.
But then got busy reading a good book. So maybe this weekend?
The book is called The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It has my attention now, and as I haven't read a book in daytime for quite a while, I might just let myself stay lost in this one until it's finished.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend.


  1. LOVE the pears - they look juicy!

    That's a good book Lynn, but very disturbing. I did like the ending tho'

  5. love that sky! and your pears have so much character and movement....very nice!

  6. Oh do stay lost. I never got very far with that book, but i do love getting lost in one.

  7. Mim, yes the book is disturbing I wasn't sure I could get past the first part, but it has me now...I even woke up and read before getting out of bed this morning. I rarely do that if ever!

    Oh, glad the pears look juicy to you, I feared they were a bit flat.

    Soul, you give GREAT kudos! Thank you.

    Lisa, I agree, Nadia's ATCs are so rich in color and texture!
