This and That

Foggy Morning

I've been waking up to foggy mornings.
Once the fog burns off the bird bath and fountain gets busy.
The robins have really enjoyed the fountain.


I added a pop of color to Musashi's Garden with a couple of geraniums.


The crochet baby blanket is finished.
This was a kit from Herrschner's called: Lil' Lullabies Baby Blanket.

Crochet Baby Afghan

The crochet group meets Saturday and I think I'm going to use this pattern
to use up some stash yarn ... with a few changes.
I have a thing for lapghans and think this pattern will make a very good one.


I had a lovely lunch with some museum friends this week 
and while I was there I visited the Portrait of Spain: Masterpieces From The Prado.
The exhibitions closes March 31 and then is off to Brisbane, Australia. 

Infanta Isabella Clara Eugenia

The Infanta Isabella Clara Eugenia by Alonso Sanchez Coello
greets you as you enter the exhibition.


Lastly, I have another postcard for you from the kiss box.
Just in time for Valentine's Day!

A Small Bridge Party

Thank you to the lovely Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday.

Wishing all of you well and much joy!

I just love the bird enjoying the bath.

We seldom have fog here so it's enjoyable that you share yours. I would love to see that exhibit at the museum...but it's just a little too far away for me to travel!

How cute...a small bridge party...who knew that those Victorians could be so playful.

What a wonderful photo of the fog. Looks as if Sherlock and Watson will come strolling through it at any minute.

Love that pattern you made for the baby afghan. Very, very nice.

That robin was posing for you!!! I love the baby blanket and could see the pattern an a lapghan...something to keep you toasty warm.

I'm in awe of that painting...what an opening to an exhibit -- draws you right in!

I can only dream of wearing such a beautiful dress that Isabella wore.

What a beautiful painting! The exhibit must have been a real treat to see.
Love the play on that postcard :)

The Infanta's dress looks really comfortable, doesn't it? Just don't sit down!

I love to study those old Spanish paintings - so much wonderful detail in them.
We have morning fog here too - then it burns off, on a good day.

I really, really like the fog photo!

Lovely shots from your garden, Snap. I imagine fog in Houston is beautiful (if you don't have to drive through it).
