Changes ....

Good evening and I hope this finds you all well. You will notice that Willow and Figs is at the top of the dashboard and I hope this isn't too confusing for all of you. Please check out my two Esty shops ~ you can find it at and the other one is

It is amazing to me how many subtle changes are taking place as August arrives. The grass isn't quite as green as it was, the nights are a bit shorter and the sun takes a lot longer to rise ... and I notice different sounds to the night animals. It was 49 degrees last night and was, for the first time in a while, very comfortable for sleeping.

Here is a photo of Tracey, Matthew & Tyler ... on one of their vacation trips.

Enjoy your weekend and I hope things are going well for all of you.

My Family

Good morning and as promised, here are some photos of my family. Tracey and Mark have two beautiful sons (and a little girl dog named Greta). Matthew is ten years old and Tyler was seven years old last January. My son Todd also has two gorgeous sons ~ Sammy who just turned seven years old in June and sweet Benjamin who also has a birthday in June ... and just turned two years old. I will post more stories and photos next week.

Good Morning

Good morning and it has been a challenging one. Two more items to post on Etsy and my camera decides not to behave. I have literally been working for three hours to get one of the items photographed and it just wouldn't seem to work right. Finally I attempted to manipulate it (brighten it, focus it, reduce it, etc.) and for now this is the best I could do.

The little French Cherub greeting card appears as though your eyes are entirely out of focus ... but until I can contact someone at Kodak ... this one will have to do!
There is also a Marie Antoinette greeting card for sale as well.

Tomorrow I'll be posting photos of my four boys (grandsons) ... along with Greta the dog.

Today I am working on a collage (Lilac Fantasy) and hopefully I will be able to put it on Etsy and post it here tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day!!
