|Gary and I took another little jaunt over to the coast recently and this was my first stop: my favorite little shop.
|This was the first time I'd seen a display behind the little shop. I found a wonderful vintage tablecloth back there.
|The shop is such a delight - so much eye candy!
|I loved this collage of fabric, flag and stamps.
|Aren't we all?
|We always take a drive in Gearhart (OR) to see our favorite beach houses.
|Dusk in Seaside, OR. Thank for coming along on our trip. I promise to have some hand mades to show you soon. I think. It's been a lazy summer for me. :-} Please come again. -Derrith

|If you have been following my blog this last week, you will know that I have been featuring the talents of my quilting buddie, Pat. We've seen her beautiful quilts and her gorgeous garden, and now...
|...you will see her fun chicken collection AND some samples of her fabulous artwork.
|She has chickens artfully displayed around her house and it is really fun.
|These are two of my favorites. Pat is an accomplished artist and she has used her chicks as inspiration for some of her art:
|I wish you could see these paintings in person - they are so well done.
|Another fun one!
|Whatever Pat does, she does it extremely well!
|I apologize for the reflection on this painting.A big thank you to Pat- we love seeing the variety of what you have created.
|I'm so glad you visited today. Please stop back by any time. -Derrith

|Today I will show you around my friend Pat's expansive and amazing garden.
|It is so beautifully laid out and meticulously kept.
|She even made her Heat pump look beautiful.
|This gives you an idea of the detail and symmetry in her garden.
|Pat and her husband have built beautiful pieces of Garden architecture and created several fun focal points.
|How's this for a garden shed?! I love it!
|She has a vegetable container garden to drool over.
|She has gorgeous bright colored flowers all over her garden, but I also love pure white roses.
|This is my beautiful, multi-talented friend Pat in the lovely garden she and her husband created. Thank you for the tour, Pat.
