It was a little late in coming,
but finally made it........
the celebration of my 100th post....


I'm excited to be giving away one of my original chandelier canvas art pieces. I hope you like it. All you have to do to have a chance to be the winner is leave me a comment before midnight on Tuesday, July 22nd. I will put all your names in a hat and have my hubby pick the winner. Be sure to leave me your email so I can contact you for your mailing information.

This is an 10x10 canvas done with a white background and black accents with rhinestone embellishments. So here we go......10 days and counting down towards the WINNER~

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we've been playing like crazy with our dear friends, Jon and Ludy Kellett. They have been in town for 9 days and we got to enjoy their company 6 of the days. We managed to cram in lots of fun and laughs, swimming in the pool, tubing on the Salt River, eating out, shopping, movies, BBQ'ing, golfing, Diamondbacks game, tennis, happy hour and eating, eating and more eating!!!
Speaking of we are in front of Liberty Market in downtown Gilbert after a delicious lunch before heading to the airport for Kellett's return to WA.

Jon and Ludy
Here's a peek at the inside of Liberty Market.
We found out this is a very poplular place with the locals.
The food is wonderful, service is fast and the atmosphere is great.
And besides, we know the owner/chef, Dave Trana, personally.
Really though, if you live in the area and haven't tried this place yet, RUN,
don't walk to the restaurant.
You won't be disappointed.
They even have an espresso bar/wine bar right in the middle of the restaurant. Very cool!Our granddaughter's really like it too! this pineapple!
A couple days ago I received a book I ordered from blogger/author, Tara Frey.
She has written a book for bloggers, crafter, artists and creators of all kinds.
The book features 50 blogs with lots of illustrations and inspiration.
Tonight I get to curl up in my favorite comfy chair and
begin to savor all the details of her book.
I can hardly wait.
I'm sure all of you would enjoy it too.

Oh, and I have gotten a little work done this past week. Managed to put the beginnings of 38 headbands together. Only 40 more to go!As this very hot (115 degrees) weekend draws to an end, we are hunkered down inside out house with overhead fans and air-conditioner going strong. But we still wouldn't trade living here for anything. Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Time for me to start reading!
xoxo Nancy

I'm leaving a comment because: A) I LOVE your artwork and want to be in your drawing :) B) Thank you for showing my parents and GREAT time! They needed it and it was so fun to pick them up at the airport and see their tan, smiling faces (even though Jax was going berserk in the backseat....quick check back to reality for my mom I guess. And C) When I visit I want to shop till I drop at all the fabulous stores my mom told me about. I LOOOOVE my new bag!
