Life, As We Know It

A bit of my life and daily adventures, through pictures and sketches.
What have you been up to?

This is a new picture I have added to my Etsy shop.  
The Flower Girl

I went for a walk to the cemetery, this is a cool gate.  I just finished reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, good and interesting story.

storm clouds

I call these Alice Trees, I don't actually know what they are, but I do believe they are magical.

Our wee little garden and the lovely fence, the boys built it using scraps of wood they found in the garage.  I love recycling.  :)

An amazing meal I made the other night.  I have been trying to experiment with new foods.  I am super picky, so it's not always easy.  I am seriously thinking I need to write a blog called, The Picky Eater's Guide To Yummy.  I've been coming across some really great recipes.  These are chicken puff pastries....oh my!!

More clouds, I can't resist.

and you blame me??

clouds and mountains...

last one of clouds, I think...

Been sketching a lot lately...trying out different things.

poor attempt at watercolor, heh!

A Beatrix bunny.

A very sketchy raccoon.

another building, these are fun.  

And a tiger that is not very symmetrical.  :)

One last photo,  The Crow.  

Have a groovy weekend everybody!!  Hope the weather is glorious where ever you are and you can go for a spin on your bicycle.  :)


  1. Oh! You are so busy! K, I LOVE your new blue girl and your sketches are brilliant! I adore the bunny! And those shops are so cool and detailed. Thank you for your sweet comment and Happy Weekend, xoxo

  2. Heather! So much fun eye candy here! Your new art is lovely....and I'm in awe of your buildings!! I find architecture impossible!

    Clouds and cemetaries are some of my favorite things! You can never put too many photos of those on here :)
    Can't wait to see that little garden plot brimming with happy little plants!

  3. Heather, the flower girl is so, so beautiful!
    I don't blame you for the clouds but you have to admit, the pictures you took are quite artistic.
    And the tiger is my kind of tiger, the smiling tiger :)
    Overall, lovely post (how else?)

  4. OMWord! I LOVE the last photo of the Crow. I'm a mega cemetery chick. I have folder after folder of my photos just for that. I love finding them across the states and taking great pics.

  5. I love dramatic cloudscapes! Your sketches are great - I have a fondness for architecture - and I started drooling over those chicken pastries. What did you put inside them, other that chicken?

  6. Heather, I got your message ;o) I haven't been on my computer for 3 days! Lots of gardening! Happy about doing the swap with you ;o)
    Well, I have to admit, I really enjoyed all your pictures today, but the two that are my fav, is the Flower Girl and The Crow ;o) A+++ Although your little garden is so cute! I love recycling too ;o) Big Hugs and have a great day!

  7. Oh you've been busy alright! You are so good at photographing the clouds. Don't ever think that we won't see it. I love all those images, and what an archive you'll have to use as inspiration. Keep photographing please!
    All your art looks great too and I especially fell for the friendly tiger. He's really smiling at me.
    Have a beautiful Sunday!
