The "SHUN" Season!

As Bishop Jackels said at our daughter's graduation ceremony, "This is SHUN season!"
That's what we've been busy with these past few weeks (& why my blog's been so neglected).
We had a house FULL of family last weekend for the big Graduation & Open House.
Lots of food, lots of fun & lots of emotions.  Still can't believe my first born is all grown up & about to leave home. 
Anyway, just wanted to share a few pictures.  Check out the dessert table!  Mmmmm...that chocolate fountain was the greatest! 
Once I get back in gear I'll have some new ART to post.  Had to take a little break & recover from all the SHUNS!

Feline Friday - Tower of Towels

Zoolou ~ Queen of the Towel Pile!

Man, I am SO behind on my blogging!  All of you who have kids in school know how busy & crazy the last few weeks of school are.  With all the activities going on there just hasn't been much time to blog, paint, sew or much less keep up with Facebook (I seriously don't know how people can be on there & post several times a day)! 
My oldest daughter is graduating High School & we're getting ready for a houseful of company next weekend ~ planning, shopping & doing all kinds of projects around the house.  She'll be getting ready for college this summer too so we'll have lots to do preparing for that.  I can't even describe the EMOTIONS I'm having through all this!  If you've been through it you KNOWIt's kind of slow torture. sniff...
Anyway, I had to post this picture of Zoolou.  Both our cats come running whenever I'm folding towels ~ without fail!  They just roll around on them & think it's a big party.  I couldn't believe Zoo jumped up on the pile without it toppling over.  I snapped a pic before she got too rowdy.  It turned out really cute & I think this just might be the inspiration for my next painting!

Have a wonderful weekend!

My Vintage Prom Daughter!

Her Gorgeous 1950s Vintage Dress!
Matching Vintage Pearls & Pumps too!
At Mass before the Dinner & Dance
Outside Sumo Restaurant
Kickin' up her heels!
(Why is there always some random person in the background of your best pictures?)

Hi All!  Just wanted to show off my daughter in her gorgeous VINTAGE dress she wore to Prom last Saturday night!
I just think it's so cool that she wasn't afraid to wear a 50-something year old dress when you know all the other girls were in slinky, modern, skin-baring, bejeweled numbers.  We found it on Etsy (of course) & when she first tried it on we knew it was just made for her!  We also scored vintage pearls from Etsy & found her some matching pumps.  A sweet sweater shrug & ruffly handbag (got both for $27 at the mall) completed her look ~ which I must say she ROCKED!

Thanks for letting me brag a little today!  :)
I'm proud of my vintage daughter!
