Hello, happy Friday!  I bet you're looking forward to the weekend.  Hope it's a great one for you.  :)

Lately I've been up to a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  I have a new art publisher and these are the photos they put together as mock-ups.  In other words, they'll work on them a little bit more to make sure the colors and images go together, and then they'll meet with buyers from various retailers and see if anybody wants them!  Crossing my fingers that they'll be well-received.

I've also been doing some decorating (which I love).  Here's a photo of our mantel (first photo on the top left) ... I'll probably end up moving things around some more, but for now this will have to do.

This weekend my husband and I will be seeing "Chaps" at the lovely Taproot Theater in Seattle.  They have such a good mix of comedy and drama and their free coffee is pretty great, too!

Other than the above, I'm still on the lookout for a horse to lease and some lessons to go with it, and I have several upcoming doctor appointments ... not my favorite thing, but a necessary evil these days.

Have a great weekend, friends!  I treasure your comments and would love to hear from you.  :)  xo


  1. Hi Vicki, Glad that you are good. I ve been reading your blog regularly but seldom made comment, sorry for that :). I am happy with your new project DIY thingy. I hope I can join for the next e- DIY course.

    hugs and love from far away...

  2. I love all of these! I hope you have a great weekend too :)
    And if you don't mind me do you find an art publisher? I think I'd like to take that route but have no idea where to begin.
    Hope you have time to take some photos while in Seattle. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks, Phoebe! At first I wasn't sure I liked how they arranged them, but they're growing on me. ;)

      Here's the website where I found publishers. I just went through and contacted whichever ones I like. Hope this helps, Phoebe!

      Hope you're enjoying your weekend and taking a lot of photos, too!

    1. You're welcome, Phoebe! I know someone will want to snatch you up! :)


Thanks so much for your comments. Your thoughts, opinions, and ideas are important to me!
