Happy, Beautiful Fall, to you all!! ♥  It is beautiful here, by Lake Huron.  The colors are really starting and our temps are in the cool Fall range now.
Isn't this a spectacular display of beauty by Mother Nature!  We were doing a bit a yard work and I ran and got the camera....My Mom passed quite a while ago....she was a professional artist specializing in watercolors, oils and pottery...when I see a sky like this, I always say "Thank You, Mom!" and blow her a kiss.  I think of her as Mother Nature's artist in residence!  How I miss her...no matter how old I get to be, a day will not go by that I do not think of her! ♥

This Christmas Cactus sits in my kitchen window...I have had it for three years and each year I mean to repot it, but it seems happy, so happy, in fact, that it blooms a couple of months early!  lol!
Click on the pictures to see them better with more detail...these buds are so pretty....a gorgeous bright pink!
Ornaments I have been painting .....




And more to do....these will be part of a nice order I  received....busy, busy, busy time of the year! The finished ornaments can be found at THE RUFFLED ROSE along with other holiday items ~ New items each week!

I am joining Beverly for   Pink Saturday
And,
Cindy for  Show And Tell Friday;

Be happy, happy, happy!
Jil ♥

Beautiful sunset...and apparently your mom was not the only professional artist in the family! I see you inherited her artistic gene. I agree...no matter how much time passes or how old we get...we never stop missing our parents when they pass on.
