Illustration Friday - Faded

For this week's IF word, faded, I kept coming back to laundry.  You know that favorite shirt you have that you think looks really good still and you just love the color?  Then one day you happen to realize by looking in the mirror or worse, seeing it in a photograph, how awful and faded it looks?  But you say to yourself, "It's just so comfortable...and you put it on anyway?  I have several items that fit this category!  Oh well...we need something to paint in don't we?

Have a great rest of the week!

Illustration Friday - Sight

It was a battle right from the start 
For both sides brought nothing but heart.
The Cattle Dogs were feisty with every swing,
While the 'Roos seemed to catch almost everything!
So who was the winner of Aussie's baseball cup?
The Kickin 'Roos or the Cattle Pups?
No matter the outcome, whomever it be,
This game was most certainly a sight to see!

Illustration Friday - kernel

Phew!  Made it back to Illustration Friday!  I know it's only been a few weeks but today was the first day I've been able to paint something for myself  in a while...and does it feel good!  We've been crazed around here the last two weeks...cleaning, painting (walls, doors and the like), cooking and getting ready for my son Luke's First Communion!  It was on Saturday and it was the most beautiful day!  We had 30 family members come celebrate with us (hence all of the preparing!)!  BUT...it was a fabulous day and a great time was had by all!  No other major events are on the horizon...so I should be able to get back to painting (I have a long "Things I want to do" list!)

Thanks for stopping by...have a great week!
