Every year on July 4th we find ourselves in Glide, Oregon at our long time friend, Sam's house.
There are all sorts of activities and good food and friendship!
A perfect combination for a fun time.
A few posts ago I shared photos of the inside of Sam's home (link) and her art there. There is even more outside. This is the scene I drew that day to be found on one of my earlier posts as well.
I love the things Sam's finds to plant plants in ...
White bikes seem to find their ways into lots of gardens.
Every direction you look it's a peaceful scene!
Sam has turned this shed into a workshop for herself!
And this little lady watches over her there.
That's my husband peeking out the window of her workshop!
Sprites are found everywhere too!
These beauties climb a trellis in front of her home.
Sometimes you feel you are in the great Old Out West!
And sometimes you think you are in a magical fantasy world!
Full of creatures big and small!
Sam is both arty and practical! Seems just about everything has a use!
It's good to have old friends, souls you know just about inside and out, as it's so darn comfortable to hang out with them. Thanks Sam for all the good years ... and here's hoping for lots more to come!
