Four weeks!

(Little Edith Rose at 4 weeks old)

Where has the time gone?

Pregnancy NEVER went this fast....
The fastest 4 weeks ever---

but possibly the sweetest!

Thanks for stopping by!

I have some *heart girls* ready to put in the shop...

Heart Girl hearts birdie
Heart Girl open arms

I found some sweet little Italian terra cotta
tiles in a hidden spot in our basement.
We live in an old house (old for the midwest--1920)

These tiles must have been left over from a project done in the early 1960's...
so I've started prepping them and painting them.

I am starting with a series focused on women---
mothers, daughters, friends, sisters...
funky and playful and all a bit different.

This beauty has gorgeous grayish hair and is proud
of her wisdom and the woman
she's become.

I have yet to name her or the tile series...
but I will keep you posted!

Watch for a shop update later this week and more posts.

I'm still a bit slow checking blogs, art, leaving comments to all of you and
juggling everything with little Edith, her sister and two brothers!
It's quite a ride!

are these baby days...of snuggling, nursing, holding and watching her grow!

Everyone wants their daily dose of "Edie" time!

Big sister and big brothers savor their time with her!

And little Edith seems to love every second of it!

It's been a while since I posted last...
but we're starting to find our way.
After hunting for Easter eggs

and relaxing with family
this weekend,
I hope to be around more this week!

I have some heart girl paintings almost finished
and some other little pieces in progress.

Thank you, everyone, for your well-wishes and congrats comments!

They are so treasured!!

She's here!!!!!

Edith Rose
arrived on Sunday, March 29th!
She was a tiny 6 pounds, 11 ounces (my smallest!)
19 1/2 inches long

We are so happy and so thankful...
she is already spoiled rotten!:)

We're still trying to get our bearings...
it will take a while,
but what a joyful, crazy adventure!
