The heat of the summer sun is blistering our aging deck and it's on days like this that I find myself longing for early spring mornings when I could take a quick, brisk walk around my neighborhood will Mollie (Yorkie-Dog).  Those cooler days came and went so fast!!!  Didn't they?  I escape the heat by enjoying my studio time and preparing for the busyness that comes as the holidays approach.

I learned a long time ago when you are in the business of creating and selling you have to work wisely and plan early!  If you don't you never catch up AND don't enjoy those very special days...
I snapped a few more pictures of my AGP Studio.  I actually had these closet doors in our guest room~but we turned that room into our office when my Mr. AGP Man changed jobs and no longer needed a large home-based office.  I love how they look in here!  Another pair of matching closet doors are to the left of the photos and I'll show them next time!
This precious old photo is of me, my sister, Faith and my brother, Bill.  I love how my tongue is sticking out!  I found it about a year ago in some old papers that belonged to my father and it hadn't been seen in almost 40 years...  I just had to include it with some of the framed vintage pictures that I love...
The vintage looking ceiling tile (at the top!) was refurbished a couple of weeks ago.  My longtime friend, Karen, gave me the piece (she's always giving me wonderful treasures!) and after painting it I added the scripture found in the book of Esther.  I need to be reminded sometimes that I'm doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing with my life.
 I've had these photo storage boxes for a long, long time and I planned on painting them many moons ago.  I finally got around to it last week...  They were different colors and patterns and I wanted them to match.

I'm weird like that!
Each one is different!  My favorite is the one with the vintage shoe on the top!  I used this exact altered art image sometime back on a note card!
 Here's another one.  I love it, too!

I'll be back soon to share a bit more.  You can always visit me on FB...I'm there, too!

I am 65 and still not sure what I want to do with my life. Since my husband passed after being married 37 years, I am slowly learning who I am and how to live. I am enjoying life and discovering things on my own.
Your place is lovely and you have such a talent for putting things together.

I love that scripture in Esther! I love the whole book of Esther! That last box with the shoe caught my eye because I live in a suburb of Rochester, NY. Love the black and white photos of your studio....or is it sepia tone?!

It is so fun to see what you have been up to AND to see you posting again. I have been in and out of blogland with not much chance to read blogs. This downsizing thing is finally winding down, I think. I will be glad to have the big part done and be able to just relax a bit....hahahahaha.

Blessings to you- xo Diana

Hello Lady!!!
I have two grown daughters that I am always looking for things to encourage them in life. Thanks for reminding me of this scripture from Esther....Not sure it I will make them a wall hanging..something for their desks...or a bracelet but I will make them something. What a beautiful scripture to remind us that we each have a very special purpose. Thank you sweet lady!!!
