Picture perfect Sunday...

We took a walk this morning around a lake and came across this woman painting this gorgeous fall scene. Of all the studio spaces I've ever seen, mother nature has got to be the ultimate backdrop.
This week there are several fun blog parties not to be missed. On Tuesday the 25th Karla's Cottage is having a house party. Read all the details here. What fun! Then on Wednesday the 26th Elizabeth of Be...Dream...Play is having Blogland Ball. Start planning your wardrobe now...here are all the details. What a grand week it is going to be. See you all there!!

Thanks for telling everyone about my party, I hope that you will be there! I have enjoyed your hospitality in the past, that is what inspired my own party. Thanks for the idea, blog parties are great!

I am getting ready for the ball too, I have my gown ready to go. What a festive week!

How fun to have happened upon a kindred spirit. And what a beautiful setting.

I am so excited to see these parties I can't wait to try and join. so nice for you to show us all around!! I love this ladies painting. It's so nice to feel the breeze in your hair and sun on your face when creating...I used to sit on my Granma Jeanie's back patio and paint with her....It would be so hot She moved her tv outside sometimes too ...at night.She was a bitty thing too....Loved painting and Creating with her...Miss her....But I can feel her warm loving creative spirit often.

Love and Abundance,
Warmly,
Stacy~Creativemuse
