Show & Tell Friday for February 22
Today I am going to share a couple of items on the wall of my guest room. I need to share these while it is still February, as you will see in a moment. I took the pictures earlier this month.
So, first of all I would like to share this gorgeous Gooseberry Patch calendar with its fun illustrations for February. I simply love the artwork featured on Gooseberry calendars and book covers, and have even encouraged them to make some of them into cross-stitch patterns. What fun that would be if they ever did take my suggestion! And then second of all is this painting of a Christmas cactus. It was painted by my daughter Joanna in her senior year of high school, and actually won a blue ribbon at a state fine arts competition. I hope eventually when Joanna gets fully settled in her new house, that she will take the painting back and display it in her own home. Until then, it remains on the guest room wall. And I do apologize for the spotty look of these walls. It is white paint over wallpaper, which was quite successful when first done, but has been marred by so much sticky-tack over the years (before it became a guest room) that it is quite unlovely. Painting that room is high on my future house projects list.

I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
