A glimpse of Austin. (Time Flew – continued.)

As promised – the catching up. Let me entertain you with a few snapshots from my recent trip to Austin. I had a wonderful time hanging out with family and did get to hit one or two of my favorite spots on South Congress…

Jackalope cowboy?

Uncommon Objects. Mecca. Antiques, found objects, downright junk. If I had a wish – it would be to have permission to take pix inside.

My loot. Enameled watch faces, a buckle to cast, a watch free of insides, full of possibilities…

And a tiny late 1800’s pocket dictionary…

Tomorrow – I will show you what I have been frantically working on since I got back…

 

Time Flew. Had fun.

Oh heavens a week ago today I was home from Austin. Home late Wednesday night actually. Since i got home – its been a frenzy. Spoutwood May Day Faerie Festival is right around the corner. I need new collage/mixed media work for a local show, to hang on April 30th. The tax man was insisting we file his papers on time. Class to teach, chores…So I endeavor to catch up, and present a slide show of scenes and cuteness from Austin, Easter, and my lil nephew…

Alright – guilty as charged. I took adorable pictures of my nephew Jack and very little else. I did leave the house, see flora and fauna, hit a few favorite stores. Let me save those for tomorrow.

I know Lucy – I am sad I live so far away too!

 

Post re-do: Snapshots from Texas

 

I first attempted this post on the road during vacation. My apologies to anyone who went looking and found the post lacking… pictures, that is. I have some bugs to work out between my iphone and Flickr – to enable posting on the go. So here is my holiday post, better late than never…

 

I hope you and your all had a fantastic holiday filled with family food and fun. Here are a few snapshots from my Christmas in Austin with my family- Texas style. 

Highways trees

These trees – all along the highway. Random Manifestations of holiday cheer. We saw two cars of people spontaneously decorating. So cool!

Wine fueled Trivia

Kahlua and coffee. Trivial pursuit and Star Wars marathon. Chocowine anyone?

Jack of hearts

Zentangle with Francie

Family time! 

Lucy!

 

So much fun crammed into a few short days! Now it’s time for a nap, or at least that’s what Schatzi thinks!
